Where the endless choice becomes complicated is trying to form a traditionally monogamous heterosexual relationship (where bacon isn’t necessarily a central focus).
Despite living in an age where your every dating preference can be catered to online, being face-to-face matters.
Apart from feeling bad for them being socially impelled to take the initiative (with the exception of the rude ones who wouldn’t take no for an answer), I was struck by the arbitrariness of it all. You interact with the people who happen to be there, in the hope that one of them might be the sort of person you’d want to get to know better.
After the last guy – who stood uncomfortably close, smelled overwhelmingly of something like Lynx Africa and looked like his shirt was sprayed on from a can – strode back to his friends in a huff at rejected advances, I’d had enough.
Slightly embarrassed at the prospect of admitting in a public sphere that I would actually like to meet a man, I’d put off signing up to dating apps.
But I’d had enough of weird, often obnoxious strangers.
If you want to have a threesome in a pool of custard with two people dressed as robots, then you’ll find those people online.About three years ago, I was sitting with a female friend in a bar on a frantic Saturday night in Dublin.By the end of the night, several worse-for-wear men had wandered in our direction and attempted – some more ably than others – to strike up a conversation.Yeah, I didn’t realise that loving bacon is a criterion to base any form of relationship on either.But now I know it is, I wouldn’t dream of dating a man who didn’t share my strong preference for thin and crispy non-smoked streaky bacon.
They’ve taken our immediate social circle out of dating, so you can do what you want without ever having to deal with the judgement of a peer group.
