Have I responded to this before? Seems familiar. Maybe it was a similar topic someplace else, though.

Anyway!

The first time that I met a date from online was way back when. I think I was about 18 - 19ish? She was a beautiful woman, with a fantastic figure, a very pretty face, lovely long black curly hair and a natural tan. Shining eyes, too. Nothing to complain about, right? Well, we're on a date that's chaperoned by her parents (a bit awkward, yes, but not the biggest issue) and..... she tells me that she's getting married soon. Hah! WUT? She even showed me her ring! Sadly, yes, it was actually supposed to be a date.

I spent the entire evening closed in a social bubble, hardly saying anything at all. Didn't even know if I should put an arm on her to comfort her while she was crying during the romantic movie. That was really awkward. I mean, seriously, like what the heck am I supposed to do!? lol

The second incident didn't make it to real life. She was talking about how athletic she is, and her profile described her as an athletic person with an athletic figure. This was very good news to me because I want to train and exercise more these days. I have a fitness goal that I want to reach by the end of May that's related to my karate classes and the rank test that we'll have at that time. Anyway, she and I talked for some time and I was thinking that if this turns out to be real, then hey, I may have struck gold.

The catch is that her profile had no photo, which was fine because this is a small town and I could respect that desire for privacy. You already know where this is going. It would have been the OP's story all over again. Her profile, comments in messages... the whole thing was a lie.

There's an optical illusion big girls use on their photos. They have the camera angled downward, with the picture only showing their face and upper shoulders, and they look thinner than they normally would.

That's why rule #1 of finding girls on the internet (or anyone, I don't care what gender you are), it having two classes of photographs: a close up of the face, and a full-body shot. Not a funny angle either, just with them standing, with the picture getting their whole body.

Personally, I don't spend a lot of time chatting online with girls, I mainly use it to find a girl who's local and see about meeting up. I'm not into long distance stuff.

An experienced person such as yourself should know better than victimize yourself.

I did understand that in a general sense we agree, but the way you put it had plenty of irony and/or hypocrisy.

"Online dating is nonsense." Applies to any form of dating. Most people are happier being single, rendering it all pointless, thus nonsensical.

"If you are incapable of meeting someone in physical reality, you aren't going to find your soul-mate on the internet." Understandable and true to a degree. But if you can't engage psychologically how long would that physical relationship last? I understand that the internet is full of fakes and lies, but so is real life (the only truth you'll find is what happens in closed walls, in most cases at least).
And if we're accounting for experience, I grew up around some really nasty people, very very close to evil (which I'm thankful for nowadays, but not back then).


"Wishful thinkers will find something to pour themselves into, even if it isn't the internet, at some point in their lives, and end up with scars." The part I agree the most. But that happens all the time everywhere, not just "even" not on the internet.

As it stands I believe you're a very reasonable person. I expect you to carry a few bad impressions of me considering other joke posts, but I'm pretty sure we'd get along great.


I do tend to be drinking during my more lengthy moments on the forum, and although it may not be obvious through grammar or spelling errors, instances like this where there is blatant flip-flopping and abundant contradiction seem to be the biggest indicator for me. Yes. I understand I put my foot in my mouth, I understand that very well. Honestly, under normal circumstances I probably wouldn't have touched such a volatile thread. ^_^

I don't have any bad impressions of you. If there were no one to tell me I'm wrong, in moments like that - I'd probably end up being wrong much, much more. So, thank you!

Funny how the guys are all saying to get all these photo's from different angles of the girls, you dont know how many times guys have lied to me or my friends about their looks, but thats ok right...ugly fat mean can get skinny beautiful girls. I also highly doubt the truth in this story and if any thread of it is true I'm sure the guy himself isnt much of a looker if he is trolling myspace for a date.

LOL Sad. That's also why I don't plan to meet with anyone here in real life~ you never know.

I never tried online dating . . .

I knew a guy who did . . . about half the time his "dates" would show up with X and a strap-on. I asked him if he "fostered" the idea of the X or the strap-on possibly by being a little too vague about what he was "in to". He told me he'd usually tell these girls that he was looking for a fun time and if things go well maybe something like a relationship.
I'm guessing he just totally misunderstood what they were looking for.

I'd thought about online dating but since my last attempts to pick someone up in the traditional way usually ended up . . . for lack of a better word, stupid... I'm not too sure it would be an improvement.

My experience has been going over to Starbucks being in line, starting a nice conversation, getting my coffee paid for (surprises me every time it happens) and we go sit down . . . the gal will generally pick a table with another guy sitting there and then she'll start flirting with the other guy???
I don't know what the hell's up with that.

I think I'll stop now....

I recomend the movie "Hard Candy"
And don't trust dating in general...its always so hard to get a girl to tell you she has a boyfriend...Just dont trust anything till it happens...then dont trust it when it does...
