I don't trust any service that stands to loose repeat business by delivering what they promise.

It never works out. The chances of it working out is really low. There are a lot of catfishes and they might be cheating on you too.

I've tried it . . . had some . . . odd experiences.

1st girl: Oh, you're nothing like your picture. Ah well, let's have fun. Oh, now you're telling me about your family - cool. Your brother is a what? A neo-nazi? Ah, also a convict in life for murder. He's also super protective? Says he'll hire to kill anyone that tried to make a move? Yeah, excuse me while I nope the heck out of there.

2nd girl: Let's go on a date . . . movie at your parents house, fine. Okay, you only have a TV/VCR combo in your room - not judging. All you have is child movies and your parents are weirding me out. I think I see one staring through the crack, we're in our twenties . . . excuse me while I call my panic contact.

3rd girl: Oh, we planned on a date and while on the way here you told your friend to tag along without telling me? Awesome! And your nothing like your photo either, we're off to a good start here. What's that? You want me to take you to a tattoo parlor for our first date? Uhuh. Oh, you're going to claw yourself on me and force kiss me - you're completely psychotic. Haha, you are leaving your friend to watch me to make sure I don't ditch you. What's that, food? Well, at least we can grab something. Oh, you're going to start blaring crap out of your phone in a family restaurant? You need a new vagina blares the song. Oh look, the waiter is giving me a sympathetic look as I beg for an escape. Ah, you also want me to pay for your friends meal because she's somehow entitled to it (wtf?). Sure, you've clearly saved me money by making sure there will never be a second one of these. Now you want to go to Walmart and steal my keys so I can't leave when going to the bathroom. AHH, nope nope nope nope nope. Permanent block on all contacts, and may you rot in a shallow grave after one of your next dates finally snaps.

4th girl: Oh, someone kind of normal. A virgin, neither here nor there. Religious, but willing to compromise - cool. Go out to eat have lively conversation, real fun. Head back to my place to watch a movie, end up making out - great. Then asks if I'm going to rape her. lulwut? No. Find out from her later she wanted to be raped as an excuse to lose her virginity and have sex. The hell? Oh, then you turn around and update your profile needing someone putting God first and tell me I ruined it by not raping you? Freaking psycho.


So yeah, I've tried it and had terrible luck. I won't give up on it because I'm too busy to meet people other ways really, but needless to say I now won't let anyone in my car that doesn't look similar to their photos, no tag alongs, no religion, and the first sign of crazy is pretty much a deal breaker.


That should be the code of internet dating.

Long distance and/or internet dating is fine as long as the two people actually want to meet each other. I have friends who that sort of thing has worked out really well for. The only thing is that both people should be cautious when meeting the other person and whatnot, due to safety issues.

What I don't understand is when two people keep to just internet dating without ever thinking about visiting the other person or moving the 'relationship' further. I wouldn't call it a real relationship if you're not at some point actually thinking of the long term goals and how you really feel for the person, or at least meeting them to see how you are together when there isn't a screen between you. People that have internet things going on for a year or two or more that never even make the time/take the money to meet the other person just don't make any sense.

I think it is better to find someone IRL to date with than someone online to date with.

Interesting topic, my story would probably be worth at least a few subsequent posts, but I'll just stick to the short version.

I was never in the market for a relationship of any sort at this point in my life, sure, if it happened...AWESOME, if not...it would probably still happen sooner or later, or once I felt ready, I'd figure out how to proceed. Finding a potential life partner is something that I expected would be hard, and possibly still will be hard, because let's face it, for many of us, it's not easy finding someone that shares the same, or at least similar interests and I'm no exception. If we don't share the same, or at least similar interests...not gonna work, nope...she can be a model, great sex, etc, etc, but if we don't share the same interests, it won't work. I've been witness of a friend and his wife long enough to realize that that's not the kind of relationship I want for myself.

About 3 months ago, I met this girl who's a friend of a friend's friend and things started out pretty slow, but then about 2 months later, we started talking more and we hit the ground running at warp speed, I made several mistakes with her, her situation is...complicated, for lack of a better word for it and...I have no damn idea if things will ever work out between us right now. Since the first time we talked, there were plans to meet up and last we talked, there still were, though that was a while ago and I haven't the faintest idea if those plans still stand.

It's not exactly "online dating", so I suppose my own thoughts on the subject should be included. I personally find online dating to be appealing, as has already been stated, it's better to find people based on common interests then simply trying hit on someone randomly in public. That'll be the route I'll be taking at some point anyways, if things don't work out with this girl
