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. ...

  1. Be yourself often means don’t embellish. No one wants to invest their time into a catfish. You might not think you’re a catfish, but even misleading people in “unimportant” ways can mean that you are ...

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.
Things are similar as far as setting up your profile but to me, a paid site is ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Why Do Professional Women Struggle with Online Dating?

Posted by:

Do single men really want the company of an educated and professional woman? While there is a certain novelty for a man to brag about being involved with an attorney, a nurse, a paralegal, or with a woman that holds a degree, it is dangerous grounds for the ego of some men. If you’re too smart, you are looked at with disdain. You’re obnoxious. You’re conceited. You think you know it all. It simply ...

Online Dating and Getting to an Exclusive Relationship

Posted by:

I get quite a few emails from people struggling to handle the situation where the person they’re dating is still active online. I hear from more women on this topic and some of those women don’t always understand my position: that if they’re not in an “exclusive” relationship, I don’t think the man is doing anything wrong.
