Same problem. I made a thread called taking a break from dating. But i think your OP describes it even better.
I keep running into the same situation when i use OLD for example. If I would swipe like a woman( consciously and not power right swiping) , I would hardly ever get the matches i truly want. So I power swipe, get matched with a mweh lady imo, BUT from the first sentence you can tell she is REALLY into me. And that's where the problems start.
By proceeding its like I take this burden on me on purpose. Just recently a woman flipped out on me because she felt I was stringing her along (which I did). When giving the choice not playing such a woman somehow feels better. By the way this was an age thing, while she was just slightly older than me.
After getting my own fair share of getting strung along I somehow feel more sympathy for women when I am the one doing it. Like I know what's she goes through, and its difficult to just put it aside. It's like I became more human over time.
This Bob qoute hit me hard.
