Do they really work? For those of us who just can't attract anyone in real life have you found meeting people from websites helpful? I am especially interested in women's experiences.
This has been my experience to, especially the player part. I was just hoping it was me. How else can I meet guy? I've had no luck all year. I've been on dating sites off and on for almost 3 years now and no luck. I have so stories to tell. Recently, I started with the dating sites again and refuse to give up this time. Perhaps, I gave up too early all those other times?Ehhh...I swing back and forth on how I feel about them. I think its potentially a good way to meet people, but I dont think its gotten quite mainstream enough (even thought there are lots of people on there), to really give you a chance to meet the type of people you're going to find a solid relationship with. At least in my area, Ive found that there are a lot of "players" and very desperate lonely guys on dating sites. You will meet people, and its definitely been a good way to get used to conversation and dating. But I cant say anyone Ive met or talked to that I met on a dating site has been an overall positive experience unfortunately.
Sorry to hear that. I wonder why some of us struggle with something as basic as getting into a relationship? Some people are constantly going from one relationship to another while others like myself can't even get one.It's the only way I can meet guys! I got a bf through one two years ago but it only lasted 3.5 months. I haven't really found anyone else since then though.
You are so right. I'm talking to a man on a dating website right now. I have two separate windows open, one for this site and one for the dating site. I've never met this man before and already he wants me to meet him at his house. He has one child and doesn't have a car. He's also 39---a bit too old for me. This is the stuff I constantly encounter on these online sites. After a while it gets frustrating and I just give up. I pray to God I meet someone soon.I could never meet a man I met on the internet. I almost did once, then I started to see his true colors. He changed in an instant. Just be careful. There are lots of angry, crazy, monsters out there, and desperate eager women make easy targets.
I have found that they do work because a person can make a profile and specify what they want and don't want in a person. I used to use dating sites when I was in my 20's and 30's but don't use them as much now. I still talk to a man that I have known for three and a half years, we are friends and we keep in touch although we live 3 hours away from each other, that prevents us from seeing each other as often as we would like. So I would recommend that when dating online, date someone that lives near you because dating long distance is no fun!!! I have a coworker who met her boyfriend on Facebook and they are dating. So dating websites can and do work.Do they really work? For those of us who just can't attract anyone in real life have you found meeting people from websites helpful?
