None of these forays worked, not even minimally; I’m not sure why not.

Only after checking with others do I sense that my disappointment with such old-style social situations is not unique.

Somewhere I came across an advertisement for The Right Stuff, which promised “Ivy League of Dating,” though they expanded their scope to include alumni of other culturally classy North American colleges, such as the University of Toronto and Sarah Lawrence.

Though Facebook became something else more general, it began with the understanding that the old ways for heterosexual introductions weren’t working as well as they did before. I recall meeting lovely teenagers who went to other high schools, some nearby; but since transportation out of my insulated town was problematic until one became licensed to drive a car, these relationships didn’t develop.

Once old enough to drive, I could pursue young women met at jobs we shared, such as a counselor at a summer day camp. Some of them introduced me to other women whom I dated and, in one case, married.

I joined Senior for a month and met some interesting women, one of them I saw again until I didn’t.

At least their offerings weren’t clogged by heterosexual beginners.

It also provided me repeatedly with thumbnail photographs of men, even though I defined myself as a straight male at the beginning; and I couldn’t find any way to correct this error.

Even though I asked to find me women residing within twenty miles of me in NYC, it offered me several only in Canada.I remember noticing that women advertising in the claimed cultural sophistication, usually measured by listing artistic preferences and/or the wish to travel to exotic places (thus implicitly discouraging those unfamiliar with Picasso or Paris).Though other seekers seized the unprecedented opportunity of discovering potential lovers residing elsewhere in the world, I did not.(Perhaps some of these people knew they weren’t what they claimed to be.) Also nearly all on Craig’s List were submitted by people more than half my current age.Other Internet dating channels demanded so much money, often as much as fifty bucks per month, that they discouraged not only freeloaders but me.I also recall being invited to a Sabbath dinner in Providence, where I was introduced to a Jewish woman student whom I didn’t date again.
