How to learn and get used to dating culture?

2021.12.08 22:11 plakio2 How to learn and get used to dating culture?

I [23M] recently moved to US from India for my PhD. I want to learn and get used to dating culture. Back home I grew up in very small town and during my undergrad the girl/boy ratio was terrible at my uni. Also, I was silent/introvert/shy back home and was always in studies. So I have zero experience with girls or dating. But the thing is I would never get into arranged marriage at all - so I need to learn to date eventually. Also, when all your friends are dating/getting gf/bf and spend their weekends going on dates your loneliness starts to get worse lol.
I am unsure how to approach dating. I always thought getting a GF is like a step before marrying. But of course, that is not at all true and apparently people date just to be in a relationship? I honestly don't understand this. I get FwB where you are in it for the sex but then relationship is something more serious but also less serious (i.e people get into relationship and 'see where it goes') at the same time? Can someone help me get the dating culture? Like what is expected? why do people date? etc. Any book that talks about the dating culture for someone not familiar with it is also helpful.
Also, since I have never dated I have no clue what a date is supposed to be. If I meet a girl on dating app, what next? What do you do on a date?
Until I understand this I don't think I'll be to use dating apps. Like everyone on reddit I had created accounts on tindebumble/hinge. I am 6ft tall, lean and am 5/10 ig but with clean shave and good haircut, so a 6/10 in my selfies. Also, my bio is pretty good. So I at least got enough matches to not lose hope. Tinder was a fucking waste - got few matches but none that I was interested or got ghosted by those that I was interested in. Bumble was better - got matched with those that I was somewhat interested in but some didn't initiate. Hinge was the best - got around 5 matches of which at least 3 I was very interested in and they were interested as well. Chatted for few days but soon I realized I have no fucking clue what I am supposed to do. I am too afraid of asking for a date because of above doubts. It's been a week since we messaged and I don't think anything will come out of it. But before wasting matches I thought I should ask this question (all my profiles are on pause atm).
I've seen my American friends dating getting GFs/BFs and for them it's seems so easy. I am too afraid to ask them as they may not even understand my question. Since you guys know the Indian/desi culture I though you guys can help a bro out lol.

If so, what happened to them? Did they survive?

2021.12.08 22:11 timmythenpc Hello! I have a question regarding switch save data and profiles.

My friend and I have planned that he will sell me his switch once he gets his hands on a switch oled. Obviously, he is going to want his games and save data on his new switch. The problem is that I’m afraid him doing a system transfer will take my profile off the switch and I will be forced to lose all of my data. I know there’s the cloud system, but my favourite games (Pokémon, splatoon) don’t have cloud support to avoid cheating. Is there any way for him to move his profile while also receiving his games while leaving my profile on the switch and keeping my save data and everything on it?

2021.12.08 22:11 border199x Why did NPR / WJCT stop playing music in the evenings?

I know it's been a long time since the format change, but I'm still missing hearing Electro Lounge during the late-evening drives home. The slot of daily rotating music shows in the 10PM hour was great as well. I'm not sure what audience is being served by having them air talk show reruns and replays all through the night. Even the broader shows like Jazz Night in America went away. I disliked the Sunday afternoon opera shows, but even now feel a strange nostalgia for them.
What was the cause for the change? Was it just the expense of having a music broadcast license from the RIAA or whoever?
I was surprised to see that the current station manager was actually the DJ for Electro Lounge and curator of all the station's previous music shows.....I would have thought there would be a bigger push for evening tunes, rather than their elimination.

2021.12.08 22:11 Boblaire With much regret, Eric LeClair, former owner of TeamCrossFitAcademy has passed on
Been kinda mulling over this since I heard about it on Sunday morning from a gym member of TCA/SealeyStrength. I saw one gym member post something about a spade but I don't really know the connotation of what that meant on Saturday.
Eric also was a part of PushPress to some degree (I dunno what really) besides TheAthleticAcademy. He had just moved out to Tennessee like many CFers have lately. I want to say Elise and other gym members were part of StrongerU.
I'm not really sure of his impact as a CrossFitter in Socal was but I know a handful of CrossFitters besides those from TCA (now SealeyStrength) had their lives impacted by Eric.
I only happened to bump into him because I was trying to find a place to train in Socal when I was visiting my fam. I want to say the first time, Mike was at Master's Nationals or American in NO but Eric told me on the phone to swing by (no WLers were around on that side of gym). At some point later I visited them at the tail end of 2014 and that's my go to spot to train when I visit my fam in socal.
The last time I saw Eric in person was 2019? I think I saw him sometime earlier in the year before he sold TCA in September.
We actually had an informal meeting talking about a project of mine that I was using his gym and staff for in September 2018 which is a very alive in my head right now.
I'm not known for being a hugger, but I remember Eric and I would often share a hug whenever I saw him in the gym when I was stopping by. Since then, I've only see his posts on IG and FB as him and Elise went on to having two kids via surrogacy.
I'm sure many of you have heard about this but dunno.
And no, I have no idea about the circumstances of his passing other than I will never share a hug with him again.

2021.12.08 22:11 depressed_seltzer Very flushed/red face 7hrs after taking Acetaminophen. Packaging says to call doctor if redness or swelling.

got my pfizer booster yesterday and took two 500mg extra strength Walgreens acetaminophen gel capsules today -- approx. 7 hours ago to lower my fever of 102.5.
i now have red blotches on my face and my face is very hot. my face was swollen hours ago but is no longer. (PIC)
no other part of my body has the blotchiness. my current temperature is 101.5.
is this just flushing from my current fever or does this count as " Stop taking this medicine and call your doctor right away if develop skin redness or swelling "

i am female, 28, 160 lbs, 5'6, no other rx, no illness. i never get such high fevers, so cannot recall if flushing is normal for me. i also rarely take tylenol- it's been a decade at least. didn't have high fever or take medicine after previous shots.
