Help with Dating Sites - Casual / Discrete Relation

Hello Folks,

After a struggling relation of a year, me and my partner decided to take a break. She is traveling to States for few months. We both decided to spend times apart, see other people if we want to and check things later.

I therefore want to go out and meet some people. See how things are. However I am not looking for something open. Maybe a casual relation. I understand there are few threads for dating sites, but I am looking for something more discreet. Some portal where people like myself come on who do not have to go through hundreds of people, go through multiple dates to find the right partner.

Recommendations please guys.

Seriously get out there and live a little, life doesn't come in neatly wrapped packages.

Who stepped on your toes today grandpa? You reply like this to a straightforward question and ask me to live my life?

You need to listen to yourself more before recommending something to others

You need to show a little more respect to your elders, young man.

Oldhand knows more about life than you know about kleenex and a numb left hand.

Go on the internet and you'll just meet freaks and weirdoes. Live a little, as Oldhand suggests, and you might actually meet someone worth meeting.

HTH

Don't get me wrong, I did not mean any disrespect

However, I believe this is an open forum and we can talk or ask what we feel like. I would have picked 10 better answers but WTH, it is an open forum.

Puzzled: you can't find alone the most advertised websites on the internet, yet you dream to find the right partner online.

Finding a nice other half in this country is almost as difficult as finding a nice flat.

Unless one comes with the other.

TBH it doesn't sound like he's really looking for a date, just a shag. Based on the TV commercials, maybe try C-Date?

that's pretty outmoded thinking, with today's range of internet sites, you can get exactly what you're after. e.g.

nostringssexwithcuddleafterwards.com
nostringssexwithoutcuddleafterwards.com
nostringssexwithoutcuddleafterwardswithoutovernigh tstay.com
nostringssexwithoutcuddleafterwardsyouwilldothewal kofshame.com

how can you expect to find the right person if you don't go to the right website?!

Often enough to meet a flesh-and-blood woman in the real world.

Re: Help with Dating Sites - Casual / Discrete Relation

Suppose my answer was a little snarky. Maybe I'm just an old fashioned grump. I am interested though in being educated, what's an un-open relationship? You see I understood your partner and yourself where taking a break for a couple of months and the mutual agreement was to play the field. Suppose when I played the field, it meant physically going out, having a banter and a flirt and seeing where things led.

True though times have changed, well except me attitude.
Good luck in your venture.

P.S Grumpy old lass, if you don't mind.

And here I thought the key to happiness was a strong internet connection and a blow-up doll.
