    Kind, Caring And Romantic ?

    Ive always had issues when meeting someone face to face. I'm shy, but also withdrawn, and the two combined provide a headache when trying to find love and romance. So with my issues in mind, my recent heartbreak somewhat behind me, I decided it was time to put myself out there...

    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.

    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...

    Why Did I Waste Of That Precious Time On Nothing?

    I would like to point out that Internet dating is not every´s body´s taste and should only be recommended my friends, who have tried it and had success finding their true love. Finding love should be priceless, but still people are putting a price on love and making it...

    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.

    I've had a lot of success

    and quite a lot of badluck with online dating. I remember joining POF and met some real doozeys. The first guy was great but had to meet a day after chatting.. I declined but he pursuaded me to meet.. So we went to a hip cafe. It was fine and we decided to catch up again for...

    Internet Dating- How Exciting

              A few years ago, I opened up an account on an online dating website. I needed to expand my horizons on my social life when it comes to dating. Since I haven't been successful with meeting somebody in college, I was going to...

    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...

    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...

    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

    All Dating Is Really About The Same.

    I think I will give up on online dating.

    All the guys want is sex. Mostly one time sex. I don't get it. If it is good, why pull the disappearing Act? I'm very angry right now. How pathetic is it to "endure" 15 dates for 1 night of booty, ????!
