    My Lamer Version of 24

    This happened ages ago, in time before instant messengers, myspaces or facebooks. I was e-mailing with a Middle European guy for some time and then he decided to do a North European road-trip on one summer. I got the honor of being the turning point on his trip, my hometown was...

    Not Sure

    I have heard about catfishing and how do you know someone is genuine. I have been chatting with someone not close to me geographically. I have had her send pics but how do I know she is not just playing game

    Not Sure How to Feel...

    I'm new to this website but thought I'd start by sharing a story.  I was tired of the college hookup scene and really wanted a relationship but it was clear the guys i ran into only wanted one thing (something i refuse to give up if ya get my drift) so i decided to try a few...

    Smooth, Like A Jazz Singer

    I have met people from online before.  Mostly from OKCupid, though there was that guy from the online magazine that I thought was much cooler until I actually met him.  My OKCupid experiences have been .. not horrible, but have prompted no return meetings.This one might...

    Yes, I Did...

    And I went to Prom with her my Senior year in high school. Too bad she turned out to be incredibly boring (and kissed like a wet pillow). Oh well. I guess it really is like they say, you can never trust the internet to truly reveal someone until you finally meet them in...

    I did this although it can be very dangerous

    if you go about it the wrong way. I actually met my current partner for the first time at my house which is crazy dangerous and I don't suggest anyone do that. Luckily he was not a psycho or stalker and everything turned out well. And a bonus, he looked exactly like his picture...

    I got talking to a woman on pof.

    Exchanged phone numbers and started texting. Found it a bit bizarre to talk to some one I'd never met by text. We met up at a pub quiz night this week and had a great time. She is good looking, slim and seems genuine. I am cautiously optimistic as she's seems to be making a lot...

    Darling Demon Of Destruction
