OMG: Hey guys! Did you know everyone is different? Apparently not.

There's a lot of dating advice being thrown back and forth on OMGUW lately, and frankly you're stupid if you believe any of it. Developing a relationship with a person to the point you're 'dating' (which is arbitrary btw) isn't a step-by-step process that is sure to work in every case, because no person is like any other person. Instead of trying to focus on how you can manipulate people into dating you, or using completely theoretical constructs of how people are to formulate a plan, why not you all just stop thinking so fucking much about it and just go with the flow? Jump on opportunities as they arise, and if they don't arise, oh well. There's billions of other people you can date.

I would imagine it would be this straightforward to people, but I guess it's not, so you're welcome I guess.

  1. Yes but casual dating (fwb) does have a game aspect to it.

  3. 1. There are not *billions* of people I can date. There are *billions* of people in the world. Many of which I will never meet, would never want to date, would never date me or are too young or old for me.
    2. Obviously, there are a lot of things a lot of people have in common. Lots of people don't want you to be too clingy or lack confidence so there's advice to help you improve yourself so that you don't do that. Those are just two things that I think are useful to note in almost every case. In general, it's useful to get tips to deal with certain situations that others have experienced before- are you basically saying that advice is not useful and people should just disregard advice and do whatever even if they're less experienced or knowledgeable on the topic because every situation is not exactly the same?

    2. OP here,

      1. Not the point, the fact is that there are theoretically endless people you could meet throughout your life, stressing over one is frivolous.

      2. I'd say that most advice is misguided, especially in regards to "how to pick up chicks" or dating in general. So many people on OMGUW, at UW in general, and even in real life seem to regard people not by their actual characteristics, but by their expectations. I'm just saying that people need to let go of their expectations of other people and actually get to know them.

  4. Stop treating people like puzzles you can solve, and just treat them like people.

    1. puzzles are exciting to think about and solve. people are just really boring.

    2. 4.a) Therefore, you think people will be exciting if you think of them as puzzles? That's like saying your exam will be easier if you think of it as a short story.
