Some Questions for everyone who's used (or is currently using) online dating Services
#1
What made you sign up for them (or it)? Was it because you were (or are) starting to fear you were/are never gonna meet anyone otherwise? Was it because it matches with your preference of meeting people anonymously without the pressure that an initial face-to-face interaction may cause or because it was/is 'popular'? Or are you/were you simply trying to combine BOTH aspects/possibilities of meeting someone so as to improve your chances- both via the real world and virtually...?

Lets share.

Well I haven't signed up yet but I guess I was wanting to meet other guys, I've browsed through about 4 dating websites but at the moment am fine with my single status. I'm just curious as to who is out there. Don't know what to say about myself just yet to make a profile.

I signed up because dating sites can open doors to meet a lot of interesting people. I never fear not meeting someone. I know it will happen in it's own time.

I haven't used it to improve my chances per say but, obviously it does. I have met a lot of interesting men online. I dated an engineer who loved carpentry and was exceptionally talented in it, a business owner who owned five theathers and was a very kind man, a musician who could bring down the house, a factory worker who loved and restored old muscle cars, a nurse who was facinated by Jung and the list goes on and on. I know people give internet dating a bad rap and yes, I have had my share of guys who wanted to hop in the bed at the drop of a hat but, I have also met men who were definatley worthy of my time and who would travel to take me out. Internet dating has for the most part been a very positive experience. I would happily do it again.

Yeah this is the thing.. I'm a guy (as you can tell lol) and I've never even been on a single date yet, let alone had a girlfriend. I'm just wondering if maybe I should make it one of my priorities to allocate some time in browsing a dating website so I can improve my chances of meeting someone (as I'm not even sure when I'll ever even get to go on a date lol Toungue).

What do you (and other people) suggest?

I've signed up once, and within a week found the woman who i now refer to as "my ex", whom i was together with for three years. I did so when i was 18 because that was when i first had started thinking about them. Since i had no experience nor guts to talk to girls i thought maybe doing it all online could help me. And it did. Found my second partner online too, here actually, and while my ex was a disaster for me, my current lovely is perfect.

Just google dating websites or companionship/friendship that should provide you with a list. They have a free one called http://www.oasisactive.com it's a world wide web I think. Anyhow good luck.

I signed up to a dating site in 2003 for the following reasons:

- I was shy
- I'm not attracted to guys from my own country
- I was on the rebound
- I wanted a guy with a specific quality at the time
- I wanted a guy who spoke English as his first language (I'm obsessed with English)
- I found the "hunt" intriguing lol

I met my boyfriend there a couple of months after signing up.
Sadly the site does no longer exist because they teamed up with a bigger site. Also it was a Jewish dating site (don't ask lol).

So I'm afraid I can't recommend any sites for you, but an obvious tip would be to not talk to women who only wants to talk about sex.
They're either a tease or a guy! Lol Toungue

Good luck! Smile
