Can’t seem to get hardly anyone to respond to my dating/relationships threads.
Not all of my threads suck so bad. For instance, if you post something like “Who’s the cutest SDMB poster?” you get hordes of people jumping on the bandwagon. (Christ, I think that one’s still going on.)
Or if you criticize someone’s favorite author, you get hordes jumping on your ass.
I think the key is that people love to respond to flirty or argumentative threads, because they provide fuel for the ego. Meanwhile, dating threads tend to remind us of our worst, most humiliating moments, and most people don’t want to talk about that.
OK, here’s the topic: the so-called sexual revolution has killed romance, taken the fun out of dating, made every date a life-or-death decision and forced people into exclusive “relationships” which are still not fully committed. Anyone agree?
