Sigh

I met a beautiful girl today at the park. She was easy to talk to and seemed really cool. Ive been single for so long it felt really amazing to talk to someone and share some laughs. As she was giving me her number she went on some anti-vaxx rant... Im so fucking done. Ive had such bad experiences with women in this city and the one time in years that I actually make an effort she turn out to be a bloody anti-vaxxer. I know I know, there are many many good people out there. I have no doubts at all that there are tons of great people here. But I dont ever seem to meet them. I dont ever admit this but im lonely. But ive been through way too much bullshit to put myself out there again. Good luck out there folks. I may have given up but im rooting for the rest of ya.

Are You Kidding?

You wrote off someone because they choose not to get a vaccine, their body, their choice. So none of these things mattered: I met a beautiful girl today at the park. She was easy to talk to and seemed really cool. Ive been single for so long it felt really amazing to talk to someone and share some laughs. Brutal! You are more united in your separation. Not wanting a vaccine does not make you a bad person just like getting a vaccine does not make you a bad person.

I'll go out with her!

I would love to meet someone like that, actually.

I’m with the Op on this. Anyone who chooses to deliberately put other people at risk of serious illness or death because of some ignorant beliefs about vaccines is not someone I’d want to hang out with either. That attitude indicates that she’s pretty selfish and probably also has a few other conspiracy theory beliefs as well.

Sharing values makes a rations hip strong. If you don't share values, what's the point of dating?
Oh, and as a widow, why would I want to be with someone who invites death and illness into their bodies? They choose that? Fine, but why would I want anything to do with them. I would never date a smoker, a meth user or a base jumper, so why an anti-vaxxer?

OP, I'm done dating too. My husband died of cancer (a rare one with no known cause) and he was it for me. Now I just spend time with friends when I can.

I would suggest you hook up with her. From the sounds of what you are saying you are in a dry spell and will be for awhile. You aren't marrying her.

A single guy
Chilled in the park
Met a beautiful woman
Who captured his heart
His pulse started racing as
They got up to part
And as she scribbled her number
She ranted about shots.

And isn’t it ironic? Don’t you think?

Hey I'm lonely too and a fully vaccinated female - I'll gladly talk to you ... heck, sometimes I'm even funny so maybe you'll laugh. Good job keeping yourself, others, and your health in mind though, but don't give up!

I came out of an unhappy second marriage just before Covid, and thanks to that experience (and the pandemic), I've realized that friendship is what really matters. Not looking for a relationship (I don't have the courage to even consider living with someone again after that last experience), but if a wonderful friend were to fall into my life and something romantic develop from that, I wouldn't say no. Very glad that my values have shifted as I now realize I don't need a relationship in order to be a valued human being, and it's nice to be free of that 'looking to date' kind of perspective.

And I hear you on the 'lonely' piece, too - I live alone and work alone. Sigh.

As for your anti-vaxxer, I completely agree with you - this would be a deal-breaker for me, too. There's nothing wrong with people having different values and belief systems, but good for you for being true to yourself, especially when you liked her so much. That's huge.

I'm on your side.I've had it with conspiracy nuts who are selfish and wilfully ignorant of science.It's so ironic how anti vaxers scream about their freedom,yet their beliefs about the vaccine are preventing them from freedoms.I wouldn't date someone who was anti vax either.And yes,a small minority can't get vaccinated but mist of us can(and should)And I'm so sick and disgusted with stupid people making comparisons with the Nazis and concentration camps.Really????? Seriously????? Go read a history book or talk to some of the families of camp survivors.It's so true that you can't fix stupid and these people have drunk the kool aid; it doesn't matter what you tell them,they will always have misinformation to back their idiotic claims.They want life to return to pre pandemic days but they're the ones driving the variants that result in restrictions.I have some of these nutters in my family and I avoid them like the plague( bad joke)

I met a cheerful man

at the park, similar nice experience but then I found out he thought gay people were sinners. Goodbye then.
