Ready to give up on dating
I've gone out with men significantly younger to significantly older.Different skin colors/ethnicities, body types ranging from skinny to jacked to overweight. Introverts, extroverts, super geeks to somewhat suave.I have a high sex drive, plenty of indoor/outdoor hobbies, and know how to communicate and compromise in ways that will build a healthy relationship.I talk to my friends and family about my frustrations but of course they're supportive -- because they're my friends and family.The biggest problem with online dating is that it convinces people that there are so many fish in the sea they don't need to really try with the fish that's right there in front of them.And I think that's a really bad thing for fostering any sense of trust -- which is what a lot of women need in order to get physical -- between two people.although I'm in a different phase in my life, 40s, post divorce after 19 year marriage, your experience really resonates with me.

Is there some strategy or tactic for weeding out the bad ones you'd recommend, if not recommend I stop dating altogether?
And yes, I've taken breaks, I've tried different sites, and I do go out and meet people IRL instead of just online.
