Here are some of my Online Dating Experiences: People who lie about their height, body-type, and use fake pictures to represent themselves untruly.
Fake, as in: that’s what they looked like ten years ago. Then you have fake profile perpetrators who pose as potential suiters and try to scam money out of you. If your instincts tell you something is fishy, trust your instincts.
I have nothing against a man who is 5-foot-6, but I’m not interested in a guy who lies about who he is – it’s a turn-off. And then I’m thinking, well if he lied about his height, what else is this guy lying about? People have a tendency to feel empowered behind the comforts of a computer screen and that’s a shame because online dating can be so great when the mischievous types aren’t exploiting it.
Everyone is doing it: some people are lonely, some busy, many just curious . They love slobbing at home – or going out partying. At some point while we were talking I had the thought, “I could go out with this woman.
They adore socialising with old friends – but can’t wait to meet new people. They want world peace, Third World debt forgiven, justice for animals… She’s a peach.” Jezebel must have had similar thoughts because as I walked her to her car she said, “It was lovely meeting you, let’s do it again”. You pick a good-looking face online and a few emails later you’re sitting in front of that face and getting on famously, planning a second date. She texted me the next morning, saying once again how much she had enjoyed my company and that she was looking forward to Friday night, our next outing. On Thursday I texted her to confirm time and place.
The conversations from the evening sparked something in me, and I realized that I’m in a much different place now than I was even a few months back.
Ok Cupid was my favorite dating website when I was experimenting with them earlier this year. Well, I personally like it for the neat matching algorithm and the nearly endless supply of random questions available.
