I Tried Internet Dating

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 159 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.

    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...

    There they sat watching the screen The lady,

    the man; a mum, a dad On their, up to the minute, iPad. Thinking of the life that might yet been. Looking for souls dipping and diving Into the ether, simply surviving. The flow and ebb the sea of faces... Who would hit on them and serve them graces? Was it him or her? What...

    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, ????!

    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...

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 I'm shy, but also withdrawn, and the two combined provide a headache when trying to find love and romance.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

    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...

    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...

    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
