Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. It is better by far than being with the wrong person just for the sake of being with someone. ( no intent to hijack thread)"Blessed are those who expect nothing ..they shall be pleasantly surprised when it arrives."Well what would you like people to do? When I decided it would be okay to do a dinner instead of just coffee I asked that you meet me outside of my place.Personally, I think it's "six of one , a half dozen of the other". Not answer you at all, or find out about you first. I did not tell you what unit I was in, but based on conversations where I said there was staging outside my window from the workman, you figured it out, so you showed at my door, with my son there and a rose in hand.You thought your first date went well, but now you are feeling rejected. Or suddenly he’s saying he’s busy every time you ask him out. “Am I not pretty enough, skinny enough, smart enough?Or maybe he was big enough to come right out tell you, “Sorry, but I’m only interested in you as a friend.” Rejection when dating is hard to handle! Suddenly you want to disappear from the dating scene altogether, imagining yourself alone and unloved at age eighty.
Plenty of women are opting out of the "efficiency" of the swipping world, instead choosing to find a date the old-fashioned way. I would type, delete, type again, delete, etc., like I didn't know who I was in real life. You're just asking these basic questions wondering when it's cool to really be yourself."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. Some are strictly " catch and release", the game is all about playing the line. Being selective about which bait you snap up is a good start. If it has nothing to do with what transpired between us, I apologize sincerely.If no one ever talked to you or never went out with you at all, or got know ya, you definately would never meet anyone to last. You are lucky if they want to be your friend, does not mean they don't like you at all - just no interested in a long term thing or no chemistry...least they are being honest...could just****with you instead and let you spend a pile of money on them....would that be better? I just wanted to share this letter that was sent to me.... i don't bother to meet or get interested so i guess i don't take that chance... I protect my son from the influence of who I date and will continue to do so until i figure out who may be around for awhile, not introduce him to every date i may have. Immediately following the dinner you wanted our time to continue, I was tired and wanted to go home, I had agreed to dinner.There was nothing romantic or spontaneous about it, and it required a lot more time and energy than I expected.
