    All Dating Is Really About The Same.

    So instead you use a computer, who doesn't use one everyday? After a 3 year relationship ended rather devastating for me I wanted to give the world of online dating a try and at the same time continue conventional dating. I was in college, working and lived on my own so online...

    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

    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...

    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...

    Internet Dating- How Exciting

    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...

    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, ????!

    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...

    Why Did I Waste Of That Precious Time On Nothing?

    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.

    I tried online dating but nothing seems to work for me. I believe it is too dangerous to try to meet someone online. I know there is another way to meet someone.
