You instinctively know who you want to talk to, who you want as a friend, and who you are attracted to.""I have tried the infamous dating apps (Bumble and Tinder) and have gone on a few first and only dates. Meeting people in bars seemed so superficial and I felt like I was in a wildlife show, as a member of a pack of animals trying to pounce on females.
I've surprisingly had the most success while traveling and meeting up with friends from years ago.
I do cosplay at Anime conventions when I go, and a lot of the times it's group cosplays with my friends or people I know.

There's no better way to gauge attraction and chemistry than to be physically present with someone." I definitely hear that!
