The Reality of Online Dating

Posted by:

Hi, everyone.

So… I’ve begun my search for my perfect match.

Although there are lots of women to try and engage with I find it difficult to find the type of woman I’m looking for. Now, this may be to the fact that I’m just not absolutely clear on want I’m looking for. To tell you the truth I’m intimidated by most of the women. I like strong intelligent women, but I find myself feeling as if I’m not good enough for that type of woman. In any event that’s my own hang ups.

I still have yet to meet anyone for a coffee, and I would say that is my fault. Although I’m not going to ask someone out just for the sake of having a date. I’m serious about this and I do realize that this is going to take time. I think that my trouble right now is that I’m not reaching out enough.

I have received three or so emails, but I am uninterested in the women that have contacted me. I’ve been told for a man that’s pretty good because it’s very rare that woman reach out to men. I got this from a female friend of mine. In any event, I do feel flattered that people would reach out to me, but on the other hand, I think man why can’t it be a woman that I am interested in. Maybe I’m being too picky, but I don’t think so. I believe that attraction is equally physical and intellectual.

As far as sending emails in the past two weeks I’ve sent three. I’m going to try and follow the guide and send more. Having only one response it only makes sense to increase the odds. Hopefully, within the next few weeks, I will have a date. I will keep you guys up to date.

    It ain’t always easy being single, but if we keep learning from each other’s experiences, we’re more likely to find happy and healthy relationships.

      I agree. I recently met someone online said he’s in the marines training and can’t use his phone. But he uses kik to communicate. Strange !
