    Internet Dating For the Terminally Lonely...

    I had been using internet dating for a whole two weeks and with every passing e-mail, I began to wonder if I was doing something wrong. I had been thoroughly wooed by the front page images of happy couples gazing lovingly into each others eyes. Him, bronzed and muscular with just...

    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...

    I Don't Like It, But What Else Is There.

    Hello All, I don't like Internet Dating myself, but I do it just in case. I haven't been dating in 2 years. I am still on some dating sites, but no luck. I also thought that I might join a Dating Site for New Agers.  Well, like all the other Dating Sites, I have to...

    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...

    Depends...

    The internet creates anxiety.  Anxiety kills love.  Simple as that.  Of course there are cheaters...deceivers online, just as there are when you meet in person.    It's possible that someone you have agreed to have an exclusive relationship...

    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...

    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...

    Not just internet dating,

    but the internet in general. People use it as a substitute for human contact and get used to the instant gratification it provides. But no one acts real on the internet. It's like the "reality tv phenomenon." People know they are being watched or judged and put on an act. And...

    Hardships

    I think that it is sad that a lot of people turn to the internet for dating now. Probably because it is the easiest route. Some people have a lot more confidence on the internet than in person, I know I do. But I have seen internet dating work, also. I just think that it ruins...

    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...

    Nothing But Sex

    But, definately maimed.  There's cyber-dating, cyber-chatting, cyber-sex, on-line matchmaking, internet social networking.  And once you log out of yahoo, or eharmony, or which ever sight you prefer, there's IM, so you can still have a conversation with no eye contact...
