I Hate Online Dating Sites

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 255 People

    Ended up deactivating

    yet again. This is such a weekly occurrence for me. I just get so annoyed. I usually like to allow myself a few days then go back to it. Sometimes it takes longer. Even up to a month or two. It sounds so stupid doesn't it?! I get upset or annoyed, then get over it and go back.

    Darkness No pain killer can stop the pain,

    I tried, believe me, nothing can stop it from aching, My heart is not broken, it is smashed. My body feels numb, all senses left me, only the pain stays, I saw lights passing by, but I only have strength breathe in the darkness. He knows I am in the darkness, he left me...

    I bother to send messages

    and give them the time of day. They view the message, view my profile and ignore. The only ones that message me are crazy, or ones that cannot put a sentence together that is not in text "speak". I remember there was one guy who within a few messages wanted me to move down...

    I have never been on one,

    I never would main reason why because I don't want to be with someone that hasn't at least got the confidence to walk up to me and impress me. Online we can be anything our imaginations want us to be, if your standing in front of me, then these something at least you can't ever...

    I Was On Them

    I think I have tried a dozen of dating sites, and left rapidly, cause it's always the same. I expected to find the Mulder of my dreams looooooool No seriously it will never happen on a dating site; because men are so commonplace on them, they're nearly all the same. Or they're...

    It's so scary. Because these could be people

    looking to rape and murder you. They could not even be themselves in the picture. They could be looking for bait that seems weak to them, or pretty for them to 'rape and murder' because there are so many psychopaths in his world. They could get obsessed with you and begin to...

    Would really like to meet someone in person

    if that was possible. Online dating sites are where predators hang out anyway. I'd love to meet a really great Christian man who is a virgin. If that was even possible

    I think I just found my breaking point with

    dating sites. Far be it from me to judge someone by weight, but seeing overweight women complain about fat/ugly guys trying to talk to them, putting "NO FAT GUYS" on their profiles, and saying they want a hot guy who won't judge their looks has put me in a position to believe...

    They are not for people like me.

    They cater to social people who like to "play the dating game" whereas I hate that it's seen as a game in the first place. I've tried niche dating sites for nerdy/geeky types as well as one for people who do not want children and they have so few users that it's not even worth...

    I am so tired of online dating.

    I have been doing it for two months and I have had enough. It is unacceptable how men behave these days. They do not want to court a woman or make the effort to have a decent effin conversation before asking if you like sex or not. The ones that actually do, chicken out when it...

    $70/month, and I don't see ANYONE worth my time.

    This is sad. I said I would likely never do this again but after finding out the Meetup group for friends only required a photo ID to join, I decided to give online dating another shot. So many women have written me, but I don't see ANY with class. All I see are gutter rats and...

    Got two long term relationships from it (2yrs &

    4 yrs) but I still hate it. I crave the magic that happens in person. I turned to online because I tend to date outside my race. That is somewhat harder to do in person esp. If it's not just for a hookup/sex. Both online and in person has its challenges and you still have to...

    It really sucks . I feel like I

    either meet guys who run for the hills or guys I want to run for the hills from. I also feel like they all just want sex. Sex is amazing and great but I don't want to hear it brought up before I've even met you for a cocktail. I'm slowly giving up hope on finding someone.

    I really hate online dating sites

    because they are very boring and dangerous. You don't know who you are talking to. I tried dating sites before but none didn't work out for me. I wish there was a better way to meet people instead of these dating sites.
