    Epic fail. People are

    so shallow. Someone could be another's Ms. or Mr. Right, yet because they aren't drop dead gorgeous or built like a Playboy bunny or Body Builder, they get passed over without anyone even bothering getting to know the person on the inside.

    So I met a guy online a couple of months ago,

    we facetime/talk every night and we communicate pretty often throughout the day. I have stressed how important communication is, especially because of our distance. I don't need constant communication but it's been almost two days since I've heard from him and I'm fearful that...

    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 I'm shy, but also withdrawn, and the two combined provide a headache when trying to find love and romance.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...

    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 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, ????!

    I tried internet dating

    and I'm not doing it again. I usually post pics that look way better than me and I think the person gets kinda disappointed when they meet me in person. I'm already self conscious about my looks as is.... But at the same time I want to post my best pics... So it may result in...

    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...

    And I've had an online boyfriend twice before.

    It sucks, trust me. Not everyone has a bad experience with it, but I stopped doing it after the second time. In my opinion, it's just a big waste of time, especially since I don't get to be physical with the person. I need physical contact, and great communication for the...

    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.

    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...

    What are your thoughts about internet dating?

    I tried it before and hated it. I'm thinking about giving it another shot, but I probably won't. I just think it's so much better to meet people in person.
