Bowing out after the third date

Posted by:

In many processes, there seems to be a grace period. A time to see if things are right. Sometimes in online dating, the same is true.

I found myself getting past the first date and lining up a second. I was completely comfortable on the first date. I was even comfortable on the second date. On the third date, we both felt the lack of sparks. Although we were comfortable with each other we both agreed that there were no sparks. ...

What’s better a paid or unpaid dating site?

Posted by:

I’ve recently moved from unpaid to a pay dating site. I can’t sit here and tell you that there are massive differences in how the services work. What I can say is that the people on the paid sites seem to be more invested. That’s not to say everyone that I encountered on an unpaid dating site was not invested but it felt harder.

Difficulties with online dating

Posted by:

There are many difficulties in online dating and finding that special someone can be hard.

I recently met a woman online. She approached me, and I thought, wow this could be good. We were only talking for a day when she gave me her number. I thought ok this is easier than going back and forth on the dating site. Honestly, she moved quicker than I’m accustomed to and, for me, that can be a red flag. However, I decided to ...

Trouble deleting your online dating Profile

Posted by:

As of late, I’ve decided to move from a non-paying site to a paid site. Needless to say, I wanted to delete my old accounts from free online dating sites. I’d rather focus on a new approach with a paid site, although that doesn’t mean I think free sites are “bad”. However, I’ve read the horror stories about getting incorrect charges or autorenewals when using a paid dating service. That is, people complain that the dating sites are still charging ...

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 ...

Criteria For a Healthy Relationship

Posted by:

Our future relationships may be served by our past loverships when they are remembered as a means to helping us grow as individuals. We may return to our past relationships in memory to instill gratitude for the lessons that have helped us learn more about who we are, to identify what we will accept in future relationships, and to realize what we will not accept.

Should I Tell Anyone I am Giving Online Dating a Try?

Posted by:

First things first: there is nothing you should do aside from what you are ready for.
