I Tried Internet Dating

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 61 People

    Oh yeah! I'm lucky that I found my one love.

    We're still dating for about 10 months.. We haven't seen each other in personal. We're just talking through Skype, iMessage or FaceTime. He lives in California, and I live in Florida.

    All Dating Is Really About The Same.

    Several Times

    Different sites, different ideas, and so many others; however, they have never worked even though I have tried a few twice. It can start out good, but die off really quickly (even those that are free). I feel like I simply don't fit in with people's expectations or that the...

    Still on there... Some interesting people,

    but it seems that most of them are of the mindset that they can sort of "mail order" a mate... But that is just my opinion

    Another Long Ago Story

    This wasn't internet, it was chatrooms for those of you who remember them.  This gal on line kept chatting me and one thing lead to another, we were supposed to meet.  The thing that bothered me was the ID, "Bob's towing", they assured me they were a girl, but...

    A Nightmare Fron The Cyber World

    I found myself a widow before I ever thought I would be one. We were married for 30 years and the best of friends. It took me three years to get past the crying, sadness and emotional issues of being left behind. One day, even though, I was still sad about his death, I decided I...

    I tried it. It sucks.

    You can meet reasonably interesting people but no one truly worthwhile. It is a waste of time but helps pass the time when you are bored.

    Better Than Getting Creeps

    I've long had half-a-dozen accounts on different art communities, for promotional reasons (it really does work), so I tried the same effort on dating communities, joining the free ones first (OkC, PoF, etc). I came up empty. I downloaded the eH app onto my phone for free, and...

    I tried it today. I signed up to some dating sites. It hasn't worked for me. Maybe also because it's harder for me to find a lesb gf than a straight guy. I'll keep trying.
