Dealing with harassment while online dating

Posted by:

When I first read a profile that asked the guys to please talk to as if they were speaking with their Mom or sister, I thought it can’t be that bad. But then I kept coming across more and more profiles with the same statement along with statements like:
  • Please do not send me any inappropriate pics.
  • I’m not here for a one night stand
  • Please don’t ask me for sex.
At first, I thought this was just a few jaded women, but I ...

Running into someone you know on a dating site

Posted by:

Running into someone you know online dating can either be a good thing or a bad thing. For me, it happened to be a good thing. It’s funny seeing people you know online, and thinking why are they single? Other times you might be saying to yourself “I know why you’re single.”
While browsing through the photos online I have come across three people that I know. The one I dated for a short period of time and never want to ...

Four weeks into online dating

Posted by:

I’ve tried Brad’s method of contacting as many people as possible to improve my odds of getting a date. In my opinion, it’s not the best approach for me. I have a hard time going out with someone just to have a date. Having quality over quantity seems a better road to go down. Over the last two weeks, I have in a sense increased my odds by joining another free dating site called Plenty of Fish.

Although I have written ...

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 ...

My First Week of Online Dating

Posted by:

Hello everyone,
So… I signed up to OKcupid. The process is easy and relatively straight forward. You pick your gender and your sexual preference, username, and password. After this, you are able to set up your profile. They lay it out so that it makes it pretty easy to express who you are and what you are looking for. They have tag lines like “what are six things you could never live without” “My favorite book so on and ...

One Outlook That Blocks Dating Success

Posted by:

There’s this quiet perception that can sometimes arise while we’re reading profiles, connecting with someone, and assessing whether we wish to go deeper and to more intimate levels with a date. It’s a perception that influences how we are seeing the other person, how we are receiving their expressions, and it even impacts how we feel around them. It is a view that has immense power, and yet is so often left unnoticed like a stealthy sneak, dodging our awareness ...

Online Dating Has Transcended Romantic Ends

Posted by:

I would like to take a break from speaking to the heteronormative and monogamous focus of online dating. If I am to be honest about the inspirational forces presently arising in my own life, I can say that an understanding of human relating and even the intentions behind the use of online dating platforms is becoming ...

A Woman’s Approach to Online Dating

Posted by:

Everybody online is looking for a little something different—some may be looking for a casual dinner partner on Friday nights, others may be looking for a new father-figure for their children. I make no claims to be in the mindset of everybody, but from my lips to your ears, here is my (fairly typical) thought process as I log-in to my online dating profile.

It starts with a look at the subject line and first sentence I can read in ...

My Second Online Date – The “Too Good to Be True” Date

Posted by:

I recently spilled my guts about my online dating hesitations and the first relationship I was in that came via an online match-up. To date, I have only met three men in person after meeting on the internet. Yes, I am that stubborn about meeting people online, plus I have had equal, if not better, success in the tried and true, old fashioned finding-dates-through-friends-and-hobbies approach.

Anyway, two of my online dating first dates became relationships, and the third was ...
