A good experience on POFPage 1 of 1    
I see so many negative ones here that I would just say that there are fantastic people on the site. I've met a couple of screwballs but last night was fantastic.

We kept is really simple and met for some ice cream at this local place, sat around eating and then went for a 5k walk around the lake. We kind of got lost on a trail so I boosted her over a bridge to get onto the main road and pulled myself over. Generally you don't find yourself boosting your date over a wall on a 1st date but what the hell - it was amusing.

We probably chatted for three hours on the walk and her personality matched her texts and messages. In person she was stunningly gorgeous so the pictures she posted didn't do her justice. A nice hug at the end and who knows. Even if she isn't interested in another date it proves to me that there are fantastic people on the site and I had a good time. I also had ice cream so win either way.

Gorgeous single mom that appears to be an excellent parent and is smart and personable. So for me a great dating experience.

One good date does not equal a match... you need to get to know someone better before knowing if
your a match.
I think what your saying is the chemistry was good, but first impressions are sometimes not right.

It's called dating !

In future dates you might find things out that make you want to run... so keep getting to know each other
but do so knowing you could find something out to make you run.

Oh don't misinterpret this as I've found my match - I want to buy a house with her. It was meant as post about having a good dating experience as opposed to the horror stories I've been reading. Really, it's just a reminder to the people who think it's hopeless to have a good date that there are decent people out there.

Congratulations and "Nicely Played"!

She may read your post and will appreciate your compliments.

Thanks! Nothing set up right away. She's a busy person with active kids so if we set something up it's not going to be right away. I'm just taking things as it goes right now which works well. lol, I just bought a condo today so it's been an interesting couple of days.

Not unless your first date is a conjugal visit at the state pen.
Congrats.

So nice to hear you had a great time with a new person.
I think more people should just get out there and take it for what it is - a time to meet a new person.
Enjoy the moment and see where it goes.

It's good to remind folks that yes, there are normal, attractive, good/decent people to have a nice meeting with. It actually happens often enough, but explicitly unattractive or crazy people unfortunately steals that thunder.

But it should be noted that having a decent or good meetup with someone attractive who ends up not being interested isn't a success, except in the realm of dodging a horrible waste of time. But then again, in the end, both have the clock at 0:00.

Quad, I completely understand where you are coming from. I recently also made a good connection with a POF member. After a series of 4-5 bad dates in a row, I was ready to call it quits on POF. Then, bang, out of the blue I meet this guy and when he hugged and kissed me goodnight, I felt butterflies for the first time in years. Hang in there, there are few of us "non-crazy" women out there. Hope this works out for you and you guys are able to go on many more dates. Good luck!

i believe i am a good person and i havent had any luck on this site... ive talked to quite a few girls on here, but none of them seem to want to actually meet and get to know each other.. its frustrating cuz i have so much to offer but no one wants to take that leap of faith.
