So after years of online dating sites I'm about clear done with them now. I have met a few women in the 10+ years on and off with online dating and even had a few dates.. Not consecutive years.... Every relationship I've had was from an offline (normal) meeting. Not looking good for online dating. lol
After all this time I've come to the conclusion that maybe 5% of people that ever sign up for these sites actually meet anyone and get a relationship out of this.
The women I have met on here and other sites have just not clicked. That is expected and I'm ok with that. What I am not ok with is the apparent level of bullsh*t that is coming along with it these days. In the past few months I have had messages from women that (according to their profile) I would be genuinely interested in talking too. We exchange a few messages and then in a matter of 12/24/48 hours the conversation goes dead and they are never to be heard from again. Profiles still up but pictures not showing. Now.... Either they are fakes (which is entirely possible) or just complete idiots. I've dealt with fakes and they didn't seem like it to me but I could be wrong. I try to give this thing a chance and it bites my a** every time. Being a busy guy this is a much more practical way to find a potential date rather than, meeting someone at a supermarket or bar etc. Bar is not a good place really.... It was great in my early 20's but not now.
Maybe some think I'm too picky. No such thing! That is a line someone uses that feels sorry for themselves and wants you to look past the things you don't want and settle for them. NOT ME! Will not settle. I'ts pointless to settle and be unhappy. See the current divorce rates for proof..... Personally I could never be happy with someone that tried to look past a fault I may have just be with someone. That's not love! I want my partner to be happy not settle. I should be everything to them and the whole butterflies things etc. No I'm not a mushy puss... lol To quote Forrest Gump... "I'm not a smart man, but I know what love is" haha
I see a lot of women complaining about men writing them for sex, sex, sex and it seems to be very creepy on the female end. I for one wish I could apologize for all the jerk twits treating women like that on here but I can't. It really is sad that decent guys cannot find a woman they are compatible with but pigs have not problem. Well anyway...
I'm done ranting for now but, keep in mind that most people (men and women) I know personally have had no luck with online dating either. The numbers are skewed by these companies to get a member base and in reality the number of ACTIVE users is quite small. I know some women that have since been married and their profiles are still here after 3 + years. They either forgot to take it down or forgot their login info and don't care.
I"m going to leave this up for a long time so some can read it and maybe gain some insight from it. I don't like to give up on things usually but this is just rediculous. If you are an attractive female (to me) and you live fairly close (or willing to travel), and actually want to meet you can message me and I may reply right away or it may be a few days. Depends if I leave the mobile app on my phone or not.
Good luck ladies. I honestly wish you the best of luck and hope you succeed in finding a good guy.
