Positive online dating experience
It is estimated that there are about 30 million total users, with roughly 1 million unique users logging in every day.
Also, when you tell men you aren't interested, they respond with, 'Whatever, bitch, you're ugly anyway.' to which I responded, 'I was ugly when you initially sent me a message, prick.'""You have to be a complete drop-dead gorgeous show-stopper to get anything out of it.Some are weird, some are looking for kinky sex partners and some are wacko.I've decided that I'm better off alone -- e Harmony.com, and can get rich off someone else's money, not mine.""I got a stalker.I replied with, ‘If you can't tell the difference between a man and woman, there is no hope for you and you should probably delete your profile.’ I then received the response, ‘I'm just saying...there are some he-she's on here and you gotta be careful.""I had been messaging with a very attractive man who said he was a firefighter, which is my weakness.We spoke for a while, but something did not feel right as I was talking to him."I was constantly overthinking what I had typed in my profile or what I was sending in a message to a guy. Over time, I began to feel like I was losing my true self in the quest to be the girl with the perfect profile, and I decided it wasn't worth the stress and sacrifice of losing and/or hiding who I am.""I was sick of constant disappointment or men that wanted to text forever. But that's the thing -- you can't really be yourself online." "Online dating gave me exactly what I wanted: practice going on dates with strangers and trusting my instincts about the men I met.
When I would see something in a guy's profile that he liked in a woman, I would think ‘Hey! What I did not like was that it felt extremely contrived, as if I was online shopping.
When online dating works, it can be a great way to connect with lots of people you wouldn't have otherwise met.
But when it doesn't, the experience can send you down the everyone-is-awful-so-I'm-probably-dying-alone spiral. I'd rather meet a great guy randomly and organically than deal with the constant rejection and exhaustion.""You just don't get that spark that you do when you know you like someone and it's instant and wonderful. It's like you try to put a face to the person you're talking to, but it just feels like this contrived entity.
My warning to women: If you have a unique name, do not post your first name or even your last initial on your profile ANYWHERE (even in your user name).
Do not post your age, and if you live in a smaller town or city, say you live in the closest big city to you.
Every time I suggested getting together, he seemed to stop messaging me and/or avoid the question.
