Are irish people dating on this??Page 1 of 16    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16)
i have been at 2 meets and 4 dates on Plenty of fish but most people i chat havent been on any dates....Whats going on?? Are people dating? I was also a member of a paid site and most people on it maintained that most guys on POF were only after sex....What are your thoughts? Do you have faith in meeting anyone off this site...Are there many genuine men and women on here in your opinion?

Well I find most of the guys on P.O.F nice and genuine to chat online too, but Ive never met any in person. I have used another site Smooch, and that was deffo a site men used for one thing, and one thing only.

I would have faith in people meeting off this site.

funny that you say smmoth i am a member of that site and i did find that it does work and i did get a reply as they said its early days yet but i got a reply from a girl in co kildare and we keep in touch and email we plan to meet this week or next here name is michelle she is 42 age does not count anymore michelle was telling me she had a few dates but the men were only looking for sex i wont be looking for sex i told here that
thats not right but your right about smooch it is a good british site it worked for me if so there is hope for any other member that is a member on that site but i wont remove my profile just in case it does not work out the good thing i will get to meet michelle in person not like members who only talk to you and ask for money

Wow Tecnic, getting a date with Michelle seems to have put you into a very nice, kind frame of mind, I'm well impressed.

I hope when it happens that you both get on great together and it leads to a very nice friendship.

Sure Cailin could always turn to a life a crime now to try and make ends meet. It's not the end of the world just yet !

yeah i have faith in this site - i think that the fact about people not having been out on dates yet, comes from them being too shy to say, ok will we do something saturday etc etc... ive had a couple dates with guys who seemed lovely, and im seeing a fella i met on here who is a total dote. (ha i cant believe i said dote but its an irish forum so youll all know what im on about anyway.) so yeah, it's worked for me. but it wont do all the work itself, ya know?!

That's a shamer Tecnic..but ah well sure it's a good thing you're not hiding your profile on here and you haven't got a huge list of restrictions on your profile anymore..

You never know your luck some nice lady might message you soon.

I have to say Tecnic, it does seem like you've had a personality transplant...it's so odd, I quite liked in when you were an angry young man, it was more fun.

Anyway..........since when did irish people really date? The Irish mating ritual has been the same since time began....go to the pub get pissed, get a shift, then the next week get a shift then buy her chips, then the week after you get to walk her home for a fondle at the doorstep....then so on and so on meeting in the pub week after week, then after 6 months of meeting in the pub while drunk, a sober meeting wil be arranged.....thats usually when meeting the parents.

But Simon Cowell has only been single for about a month..before that he was with his girlfriend for years it's only natural he'd be putting on a brave face and pretending that living life as a singleton is great !!

But fair play to you Tecnic if your job running a hospital radio station is that fulfilling for you that you don't need someone in your life.

Your right Malasam, dating has been an alien concept to us Irish for years, I remember reading the Jackie magazine as a young teenager and feeling very deprived because Irish boys weren't asking me out on any dates.

I think dating is too formal for us we prefer to be very casual.

Tecnic if you ask me nicely I might go out on a date with you.

if your not being asked out on dates thats not my problem i have a very good reason why i wont go out on any date as i said i am very busy with the raido plus if i went on a date the girl would only be getting on my wick and the last girl that done that it didnt last and i said never againe so i have desided to stay single its the best my to be now a days i like being single at least i can spend money on my self like i bought a new acer laptop so you will be waiting a long time for me to ask you out on a date sure you mightnt even turn up thats another thing i would look like a real fool waiting for you you wouldnt even turn up your only saying that just to make me go on a date with you but i am not intersted i wonde why your not being asked out i just want to do the raido and go home i am not gay i have gone of dating for good it no good i would look like a real fool waiting for you in town i am not going to ask you if you think i am you can think again becouse the anwser is no

Ahh Caillin, we all know your mad about him but he is '' a program controllor/presenter in a radio station'' and thats far more important than you are. Also he is very busy because he is a '' a program controllor/presenter in a radio station'' , the poor guy cant even eat or sleep because he is a '' a program controllor/presenter in a radio station'' oh and i just thought that i would let you in on a little secret......


He is a '' a program controllor/presenter in a radio station'' but dont tell anyone

hmmmm...I do realise that Tecnic and Cailin have a spark there so I sort of knew before writing that I'd accept an invite for a date from him that I was setting myself up for a fall so I'm not too surprised that my advances have been rejected. I'm fine about it now ...no really I am.

But Tecnic you wrote :

so you will be waiting a long time for me to ask you out on a date sure you mightnt even turn up thats another thing i would look like a real fool waiting for you you wouldnt even turn up your only saying that just to make me go on a date with you but i am not intersted i wonde why your not being asked out i just want to do the raido and go home i am not gay i have gone of dating for good it no good i would look like a real fool waiting for you in town i am not going to ask you if you think i am you can think again becouse the anwser is no

..and I want you to know that I would never stand someone up that would be a terrible thing to do.

If you think that way it's no wonder you don't bother with dating.

I've only had one experience of being stood up..bloody hell it was mortifying. Some really nice people I'd met previously were inviting me to sit with them whilst I waited for my date to turn but I just felt too embarrassed to sit with them ..making small talk with people who felt sorry for me - I still have nightmares to this day about the occasion. Thank heavens we all have mobile phones nowadays and there really is no excuse for putting someone in that position anymore.
