You want to learn how to loosen up? Take salsa dance lessons. Dancing will get you laid.

You guessed right - I'm a white female indeed, although pretty obviously foreigner (I moved here in my late 20s). I've never noticed people discriminating here but I guess I haven't been exposed indeed to communities outside of Boston proper..

Oh yes. I'd rather be shoveling snow in the winter, hiding inside all summer because of the humidity and mosquitoes, and saying 'get out of my way a$$h0l3' to everyone who says hi to me..."

Ok, now I'm too curious - where have you encountered that? In the past 5+ years of being here I've encountered (mainly) nice people, 1 cold winter (2015 winter - snow was epic), and great summers

I am asking because I just wonder if it really gets so bad if you move few miles away...

If you smile there is something wrong with you. Misery loves company. Right before I left, I can't tell you how many times I heard someone say "Why are you moving to California? There are no seasons and people are fake." I thought "Oh yes.

So have a think about the types of people you connect with and where you might find them.


Also, practice having patience. I'm a similar age and have only had one relationship so you're clearly killing it in comparison
Plus there's something to be said for people who can love their lives solo without needing to jump online and get some sort of validation hit when not in a relationship. There's no rush, everyone has a unique journey and sometime it's just not our time! Being alone will better prepare to be the best version of you for the next time love comes into your life.
Lol, yeah, because everyone that uses OLD is a desperato

OP, don't listen to this poster. If you want to, use OLD in addition to in real life approaches. I live in NYC, and for me, OLD has worked LOTS better than in real life approaches.
