    I do it a lot. It's only

    because I'm isolated and were so much more open on the net.

    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, ????!

    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

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 I'm shy, but also withdrawn, and the two combined provide a headache when trying to find love and romance.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

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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?

    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...
