For those old enough to remember before the Internet, how did we get dates? And for those computer savy and old enough, remember Prodigy and AOL? You were willing to put the time and effort into getting to know someone instead of brushing them aside. Too many do not want to invest the time in getting to know someone.
Everyone wants a RL "NOW NOW NOW" but fail to see why so many RLs and marriage fail. It seems it is impossible to post the perfect profile or perfect pix. We know what we dont like, but are we sure of what we do want? Well..have to blame a few bad apples on our end for that.
Even on this site, it's not possible to do that if you really want to meet people. I can only control what I do with my life, and how I react to how life goes.
A lot of these threads say women get 10-15 mails a day - well I don't! You seem like a sweatheart and that would be a shame... Yup, I'm tired of internet dating and those dates from hell.... There was no way I was going to be able to answer all but I did answer the more polite of them.
However that doesn't mean that I am going to date any guy who shows a bit of interest in me. I'm considered reasonably attractive, and had my share of interest. How about some normal, SANE men within an hour or so drive? I am sure I missed some but just coming on a site like this was overwhelming for me.
The internet does allow you to meet alot of people you would never meet and I try to learn something from all of them be it good and useful or just plain bad.
I think negativity comes from people taking this situation way too much to heart and trying to forego actual offline social life.
I sacrificed and worked hard to be the woman I am today and I expect nothing less than that in a mate. I myself reply to anyone who takes the time to write me,even if I'm not interested in dating the person..they take the time to write me, I'm at least polite enough to take the time to write them back and chat. I think some people are so quick to say "No not my type" and delete the message after some really are polite and being sincere. I've met a couple of people over the last couple of years on here but I have to say that they were not what they claimed to be. I chat on here with no expectations and once in a blue moon I take a chance on meeting someone but I also do not stop the tried and true method of meeting someone for the first time face to face..in public!!! lol Winter time I don't get out much though and tend to kill time on here cause quite frankly even male conversation is nice at times whether I meet them or not.
If you hace nothing to offer emotionally you best not contact me! Lets be honest you can be anyone you want on the internet and I have a feeling that alot of people are doing just that!! That's just rude to me for someone to just delete the message,when someone took the time to write you. As for the mail thing..wow, I've only been on here a couple of weeks and I guess when a new face signs on they get swamped!
And boy, I have to say that Internet Dating seems to have really hit the all time low for being shallow and negative.
For those old enough to remember before the Internet, how did we get dates? And for those computer savy and old enough, remember Prodigy and AOL? You were willing to put the time and effort into getting to know someone instead of brushing them aside.
Now you can find thousands of people..some will turn the standards meter up to an unrealistic level and hope to attain that.internet dating is like a roller coaster, you are up one day and down the next you just have to develop a thick skin and move on.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
