    Blah

    I believe you can develop a deep respect for someone you talk to and spend time with over the enternet, but its pretty much like falling in love with a fictional character. Knowing somebody and being able to interact with them, to be able to physically express your love.. is...

    Internet Dating, the Answer to the Lonely Heart...or Maybe Not

    I have been single for almost 5 years and I am reaching the point where I think I shall never meet the right man to share my life with. My divorce from a long loveless marriage was inevitable and difficult, but I also had a glimmer of excitement that finally I would be free to...

    Nothing But Sex

    Since I have found out about internet dating and chatting on IMs... I have come to realize that the only thing that anyone is interested in is sex. I mean, when you meet someone personally.... it is different. They are physically there and yes, it is more challenging to just let...

    On Line Dating

    I DON'T LIKE ON LINE DATING. THAT IS NOT HOW YOU SHOULD BE PEOPLE. BUT FOR SOME PEOPLE IT SEEMS TO WORK FOR THEM. I DIDN'T MEET MY GUY ON LINE. HIS MOM HOOKED US UP. I STARTED OUT TEXTING HIM. FOR THAT WAS THE EASY THING TO DO. WHEN HE WENT OUT TO SEA. I WOULD SEND HIM E-MAILS. I...

    Feel Very Strongly About

    I completely agree. It's scary. I am old school where it began passing notes under the desks at school and went from there. Beautiful love letters and quiet drives under the moon. But this... this is weird, it's cold, it's not human and it's scaring me for my brother's and...

    I Often Wonder

    Why it is called internet dating? You can't really go on a date with someone on the internet can you? Unless you take your laptop with you and have the camera on. Don't think having a relationship online works out. For some it does and that is fantastic but for most it all ends...

    I Miss The Personal Touches

    Guys are already sort of reserved and distant. I knew if I had to date in this day and age how frustrating it would be. I wasn't planning on dating either. Or so soon. Falling for someone kind of happened unexpectedly. I had no idea this was going to happen and I wanted to be...

    The Search For Love Begins..

    I had taken a big step. I had entered into the heady giddy world of internet dating by putting myself down in prose and staking a claim on the sea of love. I sat back and pondered what might happen and was very surprised when, on checking my profile that 12 e-mails had arrived...
