And talking about a soul mate makes matters worse—besides, do soul mates even exist?
Here are some articles to help you maneuver the mating game.
Dallas is a conservative town, and that extends to the way men dress.
Recently, a female friend and I were browsing through profiles of Dallas men. What could I learn about them from their dating profiles?
Online dating was an unexplored universe to her, and she was curious what my potential suitors looked like. First lesson: they take terrible pictures of themselves. Photos from so far away that you’d think some dude handed his camera to a space alien.
But put all these data points together and you start to see the outline of your typical Dallas guy.
I asked a gay friend from Brooklyn to evaluate Dallas men on Ok Cupid, and he saw one more quality: sincerity. (If you want to stand out on Dallas dating sites, say that you are an atheist.) He looked at gay men, too, and described Dallas gays as “clean-shaven and well-moisturized.” There were other things he noticed, too: hunting and fishing and trucks. Dallas is a big city, and we do have plenty of artsy weirdos here, too.
