You like her. You like the way she acts with you. You like being with her.

 

Screw everyone else. They can get over it.

I'm in kind of a weird place and maybe some of you can help. My long-term GF (7 1/2 years) and I recently split (On St. Patrick's Day) and I'm feeling great. We were together for long enough and it happened recently and rough enough that I almost feel strange for feeling so good.

 

I'm from CO but have been living in IN since new years for Grad school. I don't know all that many people (yet) but those who I do know I would not be interested in. I feel like I should get back out there but my mind is telling me it's too soon. Even if I were to 'get out there' It feels so odd, I'm not interested in doing the college undergrad stuff or being in a relationship with an undergrad (or really even a grad student) but I also feel the need to get back into it B) for lack of a better term. 

 

Basically this is uncharted waters for my personal, professional and now dating life and I don't know exactly how to navigate that last part just yet. Has anyone been in a similar position?

I feel like you left out one of the most important parts of this situation... how recent is "recent"?

Joined Tinder a couple days ago... and immediately realized how stupid it is.

Depends on what you're using it for. I had a lot of fun with Tinder back when I used it.

Met my current girlfriend through Tinder and even though it, like any other dating or "meet people" app, is sketchy and full of people who are totally mixed up, you have to decide if it's for you or not.  Like most of life, it is what you make it.

Besides, if you're on Tinder with religious objections to one nighters you're wasting your and everyone else's time.

Also met my girlfriend of a year and a half through Tinder. Like CS85 said, there's a lot of garbage to sift through, and depending on what you're looking for, it's easier than a lot of other things.

Also this. Probably one of the most frustrating part when I started with the app. 2/3 of the profiles say "not here for hookups" when Tinder was almost exclusively for hookups.

 

Then again, my girlfriend and I didn't start out with hookups. (Quite the frustrating courtship process, lol, but we persevered ;) )

 

But yeah, there's many online options (Tinder, OKCupid, Plenty of Fish, etc) and it's all whatever you want to make of it. Plus I know you're young, nascar. Just ask people out on dates. You don't have to find your soulmate on the first go. You don't know what's out there unless you try.

Main reason I got Tinder was because a couple friends convinced me to get it and actually have been asking to create one for me for a while, so I guess peer pressure wins this round. 

 

Part of me downloaded it just to get it, but the other part of me still thinks there's a sliver of potential with it. I think it may be better if I were living in a larger area like Columbus. However, I'm anywhere between an hour to three hours away from Columbus (depends on where I use it), and about an hour from Athens. 

 

When I use it at home, I either get people from Athens (a little far for me) or people I went to high school with, which makes it a little awkward.

 

At school (New Concord, OH), I see people from as far as Akron, Columbus, Athens, Kent, etc. It doesn't seem to matter if I change my location settings either. I've swiped right on a couple people from school but nothing yet. Given, I've only had it for less than a week, so there's that too. 

 

There is this one girl I WOULD ask out who I mentioned briefly last time I was in this thread, but we know each other a little too well and I know she, uh, gets around pretty well. I kissed her a couple weeks ago (long story) but it didn't mean anything to either of us. She's one of the two who convinced me to get the app, but as I said, we know each other a little too well.
