Disposable Dating

I definitely think there are a lot of perks to online dating/hooking-up, one being that you have a little more opportunity to talk to someone to see if there may be chemistry before actually meeting face-to-face. I'd much rather do it that way than be out on a first date and realize it just wasn't happening.

On the other hand, the impression I get from a lot of people is that most of the people they meet online are flaky, cheating, etc. or that there is just so much temptation that the odds of actually meeting someone are pretty slim.

What are your thoughts on all this?

I agree, on line dating has the huge advantage of actually chatting & finding out about someone before getting involved, than say meeting some stranger in a bar (and who hasn't done that?) big thing though, is that little spark of chemistry/attraction that only really kicks in when you meet someone face to face, so sometimes better not to get too involved before having a quick drink / coffee somewhere.
Have done a fair bit of dating in my time and still really enjoy the freedom the internet has brought, however, sites like these are very male dominated (you girls should be having the time of your lives!) the down side is that there are a lot of weird people out there (boys & girls) and a lot of guys will be lured by the thought of getting ‘easy sex’ NSA!!!!
either way, chatting and dating can be great fun and very therapeutic (especially after a break up) providing you keep things in perspective and don’t mind a bit of rejection (well hey, everyone makes mistakes and I guess that person will never know what a great opportunity they passed up!)
just shame there just aren’t more girls like you on the site!

The problem is many are not really serious about meeting and just want cyber or phone sex. If that is not your thing, it is hard to find quality real people.

Hi Daisy. I prefer face to face because of chemistry. Online dating hasn't introduced me to more women than just being out and about. What it does do is it allows me to get to know people I'd never meet because of distance. However that too can be frustrating.

The odds of meeting are very slim, for the most part. Online playing is fun, but can only go so far. I want face to face interaction at some point, but if the distance is too great, the online playing usually dies out after awhile...it IS very frustrating, especially when you know there is a connection with that person.

I've found that you can tell who is serious....wish the internet had been around when I was 21..
The ladies that you meet here usually know what they want and I love that..

There is just sooo much about a person's character and personality that can only be adequately revealed through in person encounters. Sure there is a lot that can be revealed on line but there is nothing like the immediacy of personl encounters where you are exposed to the full gamet of the other person's behaviours and characteristics - such as body language and voice etc. - that can be so revealing and arousing ... or not.

Communicating over the internet can be so one dimensional ... I mean I adore you over the internet Daisy but who knows? I might find you insufferable in person ... probably not ... but one can never know for sure.
