Until you've had time to communicate about that stuff, it's impossible to weigh them against your former boyfriend of three years." —Greg B.

If she literally can't keep his name out of her mouth for a couple of hours, it makes me feel like she's clearly not over past issues.
We're usually pretty open to new ideas." —Adrian B."Please don't critique or be too harsh about someone's sexual performance the first time you hook up with him.
Things are new and you aren't familiar with what the other likes yet. Opt for something that gives you both an easy out, like lunch or a drink.
First few dates, make the food good, simple and completely forgettable so you can focus on each other." —Max S.really awkward (which is understandable, especially if it's a blind date), so having a girl go the opposite route not only makes her more intriguing—it’s also a total turn-on." —Alex S." title="image" class="lazyimage lazyload" data-src="https://hips.hearstapps.com/cos.h-cdn.co/assets/cm/14/25/539fc091c55c1_-_cos-07-couple-staring-at-each-other-de-mscn.jpg? Girls have this tendency of expecting guys to read between the lines, then ending up disappointed.
If you want something, be specific and avoid causing yourself unnecessary stress.
My suggestion for you is to embrace the flirting, try doing some yourself, and maybe meet some of those men - whom you feel comfortable meeting - for a date IRL to see if there's any connection. Or host your own and ask friends to bring their friends (that's how I met my wife). Find groups who share those hobbies and do them with new people. But the opposite of that would be girls being stuck in the "fuckzone" of being fwbs whom they just hook-up with and not take seriously. That's pretty ridiculous to expect the guys not to flirt with you when that's literally the purpose of the app (get to know someone in a romantic context, which starts with flirting.)I feel you. To get to know a person through flirting feels so fake, somehow.
