Once I met three different new guys in one day. That was too much! I've met two in the same evening


Holy Cow. Would you like to be my secretary??? Talk about "TIME MANAGEMENT"

In my best David Copperfield dating mode I couldn't pull that off..

Dates, or meets???

Less of the first then the later...

It puzzles me, is it that hard to find a match?

Yes.

A couple of dozen. I dated one exclusively for a couple of months. Most of them turned into friends and a few of them were just accidents looking for a place to happen.

I've been on a little more than a handful of dates with women I met online over the last few years. I do live in a small town though and I was also out of circulation for a bit while dating someone I didn't meet online.

It's because too many guys lie and misrepresent themselves.
Plus you can't order chemistry like a pizza.
I'm sure desperate people don't need to date too many people.
They just take whatever they can get and aren't picky.

Woman go on A LOT of dates...

How can a person date so much and yet not feel chemistry with ANY of the men you meet?

You playing with guys heads? Bored? or REALLY hated all the guys you dated? It puzzles me, is it that hard to find a match?


Yes, it is very hard to find your match; hence, the reason why I am on a date every weekend.It is also difficult to find someone with whom you have chemistry with as well. That is why I am going to continue to keep on trying till I find the "right" one. You are never going to find someone special, if you do not go out and date. Also, I am not going to be settling for less. To jump into a relationship with someone, who there is not a strong chemistry with, that is when you are playing head games. Not only with the person who you are dating but to yourself as well.

Online dating is seriously screwed up. How in the world can a woman go on so many dates and yet not find a match?!!?

A) Being completely unrealistic about what they look for

B) Just WANT to be single and make people think you're looking (games)

C) Maybe the woman has a serious problem and puts up mental barriers before the date even starts, that prevent her from seeing any "chemistry" when it actually might be there if she relaxes a bit.

D) Only a very very small percentage of men understand woman.


No wonder the gay population is booming.

Over the years I can't even remember the count. I have had 2 long term relationships from online dates.

From this site? I would say about a dozen or so.

Been on and off this and other sites for the last 2 years...... Zero (0) dates, response rate is almost nil.

On the other hand, IRL I usually don't have any problems dating once I can find a single woman in such a small town.... I guess because women can see the real me. It's difficult to put ones personality on paper I guess.

I would dare to ask most of the women and men here with such luck......
...... if there was no such thing as online dating, before you were here....... how many dates did or would you realistically go on before having a relationship of a few months or more?

I seriously doubt (before online dating) most of you went on 20, 30 over 100 serious first time dates before "hooking up" with someone?? Think about it???

I believe online dating has set most peoples expectations off the charts as to what they will realistically find compared to what they're looking for.

eyes never lie....Are you asking those of us that have had many dates whether or not our expectations are too high? Did you ever consider that those that have no luck have the high expectations....and that's why they don't have any luck?


Hi happyrebel,

Actually that wasn't was I was asking but also a valid question maybe for some. I was speaking in general of anyone male , female, luck or no luck. Though, you also bring up a great question and observation about those with no luck. I'm just thinking that all of us are guilty in some way or another of our expectations being set high versus the reality of life in general.

I can't honestly say that I don't have any flaws (being the one). Neither can I say that a potential mate/prospect may see me as a " qualified" suitor. I can honestly say that I "will not" be the person that any one single woman will see as a perfect suitor. There is something about each and everyone of us that a potential suitor may see and run like the wind.

I believe it's not what you can't look past, it's what's you can look past and seek the qualities that stand out that suit your expectations the closest.

I'm not good with words, I'm more of an "actions" man. I hope what I said makes sense.

One. I thought it went well, even went on a second date. I was interested, but I guess that was not a returned feeling. It possibly may have been my nervousnes...idk. It was immediately after I joined this site too and I thought maybe I would be lucky ha ha. But either way, I have yet to talk to anyone else to the point I would want to go on a date with them.

I have met 8 or so prospective dates in the last 8 years. One was only a first meet, she brought her one-year-old son. Six lasted for a month or two of dates and ended as friends. The last date and I had a relationship for 6 years. Probably not the norm, but, I like people who share the same interests as I. I feel this is a great medium to find people with like interests!

I've met 2 guys from this site. I did not like the first one. And the second was very nice but they way we met was very strange. I'm still new to online dating...but I'd still prefer DATING. Some of the things guys ask for a first date are just stupid.

I've met about a dozen guys over the past 8-9 years. Most were short lived, but there was the occassional one that lasted a while.

From here. Zippo. Zilch. Nada.

Which is ok. I prefer to meet people in the real world instead.
