dating for dummies pdf - Portland matalic single dating
As Straubel does now, Green, the Portland woman who was cautioned about being single here, believes that dating is all about attitude – and her approach in Portland has been not to take that warning to heart.
“I think the dating scene depends on the person,” she said.
Sick of seeing exes and their new love interests around town, she escaped across the country when she was in her early 20s.
But the dating scene in Los Angeles, while active, wasn’t the answer.
The two were supposed to meet for the first time on a blind date, but as they were making plans over the phone to get drinks at LFK, they realized they were driving past each other in the parking lot of Planet Fitness. Constantly seeing people from one’s past is the more common – and uncomfortable – kind of chance encounter in Portland, Straubel said.
