very frustrated.

girl 1- brought 3 of her male friends to bowl with us without telling me beforehand. they all proceeded to get drunk.

girl 2- gave me a laundry list of serious medical ailments on the first date, which was a big turn-off.

girl 3- hit it off right away and had great chemistry and attraction. she eventually broke it off out of the blue. she still had issues with her abusive ex's and just wasn't ready for a relationship. very disappointing. i really liked her a lot.

girl 4- saw each other for a short time, then she ended it because "it was too much about sex". 2 weeks later, she "just wants to be f**k buddies". umm, ok?! she later broke it off again and i found out she was bi-polar.

girl 5- i drove 25 miles in traffic because she didn't have a car. i waited an hour past our agreed upon time and then left when she didn't show. she actually got mad with me because i didn't wait longer and vulgarly insulted me via email.

girl 5- a "few extra pounds" turned out to be at least 5o extra (i'm not kidding). when she walked in, i was like, "no way is that her...", which turned into, "...oh crud, that is her". i couldn't even get my arms around her for a hug. that's what i get for not seeing a body shot.

I agree with you it just makes things seem harder especially when people appear to be spoiled for choice!

For some it's feast or famine when it comes to interest and potentials of interest on a site such as this one. It can be frustrating or it could be you BEING frustrating. (the 'you' not being specifically you OP).

Expectations are important... not too high, not too low. In my current 'famine', while logged on I'm mostly utilizing the entertainment value i.e. the forums as something to do for a diversion from the daily grind. When my attitude reverts back to a serious interest in dating, then we'll see how it is.
