Hardcore dating Chat private with girls only
Like being caught on a date when you've said to someone you're not really looking for a relationship - argh!Beyond meeting for a first date, this shit is serious.Imagine meeting someone for the first time and having to decide there on the spot if you want to live with them. So I get the situation but as the girl on the other side of it, I can't help feeling interviewed like some awkward speed-dating prospect when I flat-view.Being currently not in-pocket enough to afford to buy (hah!) or even rent a place to myself, I'm trawling the accommodation-dating-sites of Spareroom and Gumtree for some glimmering prospect of a room that I can see myself living in for potentially the next 12 months.
I'm not fussy - it's got to be a double with some sort of storage available for all my tat and it's got to have a living room. But again, like love, we pretend we have no real requirements and dive head-first into seemingly rubbish prospects because they tick boxes and well, what if there's potential?? Having spent time on the first date, realising on walking in the door that this was never going to happen, you leave at the end feeling like it was all a waste of time and you should have listened to your gut in the first place. The other oddity that makes flat-sharing in particular like dating, is that the current residents need to like you.
They need to meet you, laugh at your jokes, and envisage a future of movie nights and sharing chores and decide whether they're ready to bring you into their life.
Like many people my age, I'm looking to settle down.
I need comfort and security and something that feels just, well, right.
I've toyed with short-term prospects and everyone's had their fun, but now I'm looking for something serious and long-term.
Something I can stick with for the future, and make my life plans around. Well bollocks to that as I'm actually looking for a flat in London and I've come to the realisation that the hunt for both has some very strange similarities.
