So -Questions? Comments! Opinions! I am looking for all of these on your experiences in the world of internet dating on this site and others that should probably remain nameless; no I am not doing research for publication this is for my own edification and curiosity.
Over the past 2 years I have tried a number of internet dating sites viewing different profiles and trying all the available methods for contacting women that were offered on them. I have been on numerous dates some interesting, a few scary ones, some with either down right lairs or just delusional. Being honest here there were also some who although may have been interested in me there was something about them that stopped me from being interested in them. It could have been anything from their accent to the picket fence smile. You read a profile wink/smile/ message because of the photo?-the detail he put into a profile?-or do you see a photo and say ‘Hello I want some of that (crude maybe but isn’t that what the posters of the graphic shots are hoping you’ll say)!’ It maybe me being a cynic but some of the photos I am quite sceptical about why I hear you ask well lets just say your on a computer …and
go from there. From here you either start messaging each other or jump right in exchange phone numbers and start from there. So after all this what criteria do you decide to meet up with someone? He’s hot in his photo, makes you laugh, and sounds like a nice guy? At this stage a couple of hurdles have been cleared so you go for it ‘The Meet’. Usually on a first meeting there usually is some nervous tension and some small hopes that that this is the one that will justify all that energy spent typing you fingers to the bone while your work colleagues really thought that you were being overzealous on that project or must have a shit load of e-mail to answer.
Now comes the interesting part you meet and mmmm? We all know when meeting someone that the first ten seconds or so are a physical evaluation of the other person and does this make us overly critical? So maybe after all I have found that there is one underling theme. We all are looking for something more than we have now. Be it a FB, bit on the side, different strokes, what ever. Do I hear you saying ‘Isn’t that bloody obvious you berk?
