    Recently Met Someone

    I started talking to the guy I'm seeing on a dating site almost by accident. I tended to lurk and not send messages. Apparently the site emailed him to tell him I had checked him out since we were such a good match. He messaged me and the conversation actually didn't die out...

    I don't understand this group.

    I didn't realize that the Intenet is a place. Am I from the Internet? Is this some kind of alternate reality? If I met someone in real life, would they stare at me uncomfortably and say, "Are... Are you from... the Intenet??" And then giggle uncontrollably?

    Unexpected Ventures....

    It's funny how things work out. One minute you are going about your life, the normal: Get up, go to work, Eat, Sleep, **********, and do it all again the next day, and then the next minute you fall madly in love with someone. Yeah, I met someone in person that I met online...

    The Story Of Online

    I never believed in online dating, i thought it was dumb and an easy way to get fooled. I never had problems getting dates with men, but I would constantly grow bored of the bar scene. And for someone who moved two states to attend med school the only opportunities were either...

    POF. He's black and I'm Hispanic. I've never dated a black man but I really really liked him. I left with butterflies. It's weird. I've been waiting for this feeling for a long time. I've met a lot of men who never made me feel that and they weren't the one for me. I hope that...
