Online dating can kiss my @$$!!!

I was encouraged to try it out, paid for a months subscription, and....yeh. Waste of bloody time.

this one chick told me she didnt reply to me the first time because I just said "hi how are you?" I replied "well, what do you expect, a novel?" Because most of the time no one ever replies, or if they do, its just, 'fine' 'good' or 'not bad'. No hint of a conversation anywhere.

I'm tired of reading all the expectations on people's profiles.

Then theres the idiots on there who are just looking for freinds. Then piss off of the website then as its a DATING website.

So bollocks to online dating, its a joke. I'd rather meet someone in person or try my luck in the real world.

Oh and in the past I did meet up with about 3 women on different occasions. Not one of them looked like they did in their photos and 2 of them were complete weirdo's.

I'm basing my experience on the lack of human contact on that website, and the others I've tried. "Hey lets make an account and reply with 2 word sentences!!! YEEH!!!"

Rant over I guess.

  • I've never had luck on dating websites but had several wonderful girlfriends I met through message boards.

  • My theory is look for some one flawed that you accept who they are as a person, without seeing their flaws. Of course people can make mistakes. I mean this compatibility shit, the I don't have enough chemistry and all that jazz...I'm not saying that two people with nothing in common can be together, but I'm sure that it's possible for two very different people to fall in love. If they accept one another and still are attracted to one another, and respect one another and "love" one another.(I wish I knew what it truly meant to love a woman :D)

    That's the topic I wanted to ask earlier but never did, I think...

    The topic, about compatibility versus chemistry.

  • Its easy. I will help.. Some great places to meet women are bookstores....

    Step one.
    spot girl

    Step two.
    talk to girl

    Step three.
    if it seem she is someone you could like ask her out for dinner, do not go to a movie because you will not be able to talk during one... take her bowling or mini golf something like that.... Second date take her to a movie or live theater.

    Step four..
    if the date didn't go very well... start over at step one.

    This is important... learn to have a thick skin and not take rejection personally... realize that despite all your good qualities you'll just not be what people are looking for... Remember when that happens to you, you'll have done it to someone else.. Its just human nature.

    Do not get discouraged.. unless you're super attractive you WILL get turned down.. girls get hit on a lot more than guys so they have the benefit of being picky.

    DO NOT use stupid pickup lines... they're lazy and girls do not find them as clever as we do.

  • All boils down to personality to be honest. To me the main problem isn't the environment being virtual, the main problem is that the site's main purpose is to match people. When being matched is the only thing a person's expecting to happen, they always resort to cheap tactics and act like someone who they are not. This also happens in IRL parties, everyone tries to act cool and buys the most expensive drink and shit like that. The only reason why people don't flame that like they flame online dating is that if they play their cards right they can score with the chick in the very same day. Having a sex body count is corny and meaningless so I find this as stupid as online dating sites.

    Back to the point I was trying to make; like Samuel L Jackson says, personality goes a long way. Make people know who you are, what you like and how you react to your surroundings. Don't try to be carbon copies of douchebags. In this way you can even find a significant other while playing an MMORPG. Sure, yes, that kind of games are full of Guys-In-Real-Life, but I know more than just one couple, living happily as we talk, whose first meeting was in a machine forest surrounded by high quality sparkly sword sellers and tree monsters.

  • Just walk up to a girl and ask "Would you mind eating a free meal with me?" If she says no, then it was not meant to be, if she says yes move on to question 2 "How about seeing a free movie?"

  • "excuse me, does this cloth smell like chloroform to you?"

    Thanks. Are you female by any chance?

    I don't get offended or upset if i'm turned down, It actually relieves me then I don't have to think about that woman anymore and move onto the next target...I mean prey...I mean woman.

    I gave this chick I like my number to her freind to give her as I had no chance to see or give it to her at work today. Usually we have the same break times but I've moved position and now we don't. Apparently she was asking about me today hehehe but watever I bet she doesn't txt meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! LOL.

    Maybe thats the problem, I am ME. But hey if they are not interested in knowing me then vice versa.
