Let's talk about online dating

Now that the poll is closed, we wanted to continue the conversation about online dating. Ten of you have dated someone you met online, and nine haven't.

So let's hear more about it. How did it work out? Are you still dating this person, or was it a disaster? Did you ever feel unsafe once you met this stranger in person? Or did you just keep your dating life virtual?

Chime in about this online lovin'.

The only experience I have with what I would consider online dating happened back in the day when AOL chat rooms were the place to be, circa 10 years ago.
A friend of mine met up with a guy and decided to meet at a local bar. He brought 2 friends, she brought 2 friends. I was one of the friends who didn't know about the hook-up until we got to the bar and I was paired up by height. Turns out the short one was fun to hang with that night but I dated the middle height guy for nearly 8 years. I don't know if that was so much internet dating or fate but it was a good relationship and we're still good friends to this day. I think if you put yourself out there in all kinds of ways, something eventually comes back. And eventually that thing will be good.

people trip no matter where or how you meet them, they come with a hidden agenda they are not telling each other about.. but judging them on their assumption of expectation of being a mind reader..

it would be nice to meet women, online or in person.. but women make it like something out of a zoo gone wild story, with their assessments born and build on their Cinderella complexes..
and far too many guys go out with this attitude, as if she talks to him, he own her..., and some hae that attitude to judge her based on how hard she plays to get..

when truly only a self delusional fool, would want someone to play hard to get, just so they can get an ego trip, of thinking they won something..

we make the most natural thing in life into the most insidious cycle of idiocy.... and then we have the nerves to get angry with each other, because we both played a fools game of delusion upon delusion...

instead of saying hello, and be happy with their choosing.

if people can get beyond that delusion.. it may be easy to meet people ..
