Dating Websites?

Has anyone used a dating website to meet a partner? What sites did you use and were they successful?

I tried Yahoo but I get all old, 70 year old guys reply to me.

I would totally reply to you if I knew your yahoo profile

I setup a yahoo personals profile over a year ago when I moved just to meet people but not to date. I haven't tried a dating site...but I guess you could try match.com.

I came for the hatred.
I stayed for the ballbag.

Too bad I'm only 20 . .


There are commercials for eharmony.com about every 10 minutes when I watch TV. Maybe try that one.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

She's already tried eHarmony and match.com. (And I think Yahoo personals, too, if I recall.)

I'll try to help find a good one, hon.

I would avoid them if there are opportunities to meet people by getting involved with other activities - say hobbies type things. Always easier to meet people when you have something in common to direct your energies to.
I dunno about Fl, but when I was single and cycling on the ground, there were a lot of single folks into the sport. (Though, I was there more for riding than anything else...)
Non profits and volunteer opportunities are also good to meet folks from all walks of life.
Don't recommend rushing things though...

I am so important I feel the need to let it be known like a liberal discovering the internets for the first time. Uh hur hur hur. I also wash myself with a rag on a stick.

Ya know..first off dont even pay money to try to find someone..

" I know.. try MY Spaz!!!"

NO..

The main thing for us all is the instinctive drive that can make us insane trying to find the one..

realism in what we are looking for is good..

love is not tip-toeing through the tulips with bunnies n shiz.. the flip-side when we have a bad day is way too extreme to maintain a point of stability..

Two the best advice.. when you start looking for someone.. thats all you can wind up doing.. Looking

You need to try to be the best person you can be.. but not "fluffy"..try to live life like it is.. and eventually the right person will sideswipe your life and if it going to be a good thing then it will.. but don't expect things to be all heavy on from the get go no mater how bad you may want it with someone.. the demon itself right there..

Though it gives you some love memories that stay with you and but thats bad advice..LOL

just don't let it sweep you away to something less than what you want.. and uhmm.. pay sites and shit are there to have you pay...

thats it..all that sells there will be the only thing you buy..You are better off with porn that way..really..

So yeah .. its a complicated mess..

make sure you have your issues nailed down and know what you want out of life before you start asking someone else what they want..

I don't even know you just spitting advice and food for thought..

Now you got the idea If it's that hard to meet people, then don't sit in front of your computer, hoping that someone will come online - go out, take up a new hobby or something. Nearly every place I have lived has run things on weekday evenings - dance classes, yoga, rock climbing, art classes, etc. It's cheaper, you got to meet people that have the same interests as you, and you actually get to take a look at them first before you get too friendly with them.

You do realise you are in an internet forum?

:P

Sorry, I have nothing serious to contribute. I tried out an internet dating site once when I was much younger, I didn't find it useful or good at all.. I can't even remember what it was called... saw it in some advert bar.

^If you do that, Missy..get the guy's real name and job and phone and give it to at least one friend before meeting "whomever" in a public place. Verify so that your friends can easily check on you next day!
No joke!

Srsly though, cybersex is NOT online dating.

I suppose you need a basis for comparision to come to that conclusion though...

Learning new things like Morse Code or How to keep Them Captive at your local S&M Adult School is a good way to meet people!



By the by..I have a friend, who is in about, what seems to me, twenty "meet your fella" places; all they do is send her pictures of their dicky mouse..
No, I'm not kidding...
ewwww just ewwww...I mean they didn't even buy her a cocktail for God's(as you know it to be) sake!

In between which meetings?

The older you get, the busier you get. It's one of those things that just comes with age. And it makes it proportionally harder to meet new people with any regularity.
