My first question (sorry but had to ask), why would he need a dating site to meet people? I wouldn't tell anyone I had any money until the 5th date ( :

he didn't tell me it's an assumption I made from car, house location, and owning a business....he could be in debt up to his eyeballs but he's not renting a room in a house like some of the guys I've met.

 also keep my finances quiet for a while but as soon as people know where I live they know I'm not dirt poor.

How is it going, everyone? Anyone have an inspiring story? 
My texter from afar, lost his job last week. Last night I received a message from someone that wasn't on my contact list.  It was him; I assumed he used his work cell to text me before.  Today he texts me to ask advice with his girlfriend. 
When are we starting to write the book?

Needytoo,

If he is asking advice about his girlfriend, cut him loose. You do not need that drama in your life. You deserve more. You deserve the real deal. This is not it.

Nothing overly inspiring to share. My profiles are all still hidden so no funny material for you.

I am getting to know my no fishing, no camping guy. No clue if something will come of it or not yet.

I did go on my first ever, set up/blind date, today. That was interesting. Very nice man. Older than I expected but did not look his age. No immediate spark but may consider another outing if it comes to that.

I have not experienced getting to know more than one person at a time, so that could get entertaining!

Needytoo  Geez, what's he thinking??  Block him!   

Matchmaker set me up with a new guy - we've texted the past 2 days, mostly dog pics.  Seems sweet, maybe we'll see each other this weekend.   Not really feeling it, but we'll see.
Have I told you lately how much I love you?

not really feeling it but we'll see...story of my impression of online dating.....

I don't know I think its just the inorganic nature of it......it takes time to form an opinion.

In the past generally you got to know someone peripherally and then if they intrigued you then you try to become more engaged with them....that warm up period is missing in online dating.

Well-said, klim! There's something sort of odd about messaging, figuring out whether to make that phone call or text or not, and then figuring out whether to meet face-to-face. Maybe it was the surprise of meeting right away that made it different before ...

wecouldbeheroes just read your reply again....  "why would he need a dating site to meet people"...why do any of us need a dating site!?!


cuz we're not meeting people in our daily lives. I don't think online dating is restricted to one economical or societal class of people....rich people don't necessarily have more friends.

I don't know that's my opinion......do the rest of you feel like online dating brings in a certain type of person?

It could depend on the site, klim. There is a sort of new one (at least I think it's new) targeting doctoral level professionals. There are also those sites for people 50+. Neither of those sorts of age or profession-related targeting speaks to personality, however  ::)

You answered your own question.

Makes no bit of difference to me, that is financial status. I once was on the jungle queen cruise ship in Florida. Long story short. Guy brings his gf on, they are sitting and then pass a multi million dollar home (if you were ever there you'd know), gf says omg what a beautiful house. Mind you she thought he was poor. He says you like it ? Yes.

Happy Anniversary...

It's yours.

My point. Geez I have no idea.
Oh yes, money is fine, great and everything, but in the end, matters little. It's the love people share. I guess I'm old fashioned. Maybe just old lol.

I joined Our Time, DO NOT BOTHER.  It is a scam.  You get randomly generated emails from guys. 

I think you are all right about "texter from a far". 

"Window face squisher" has made me his favorite on POF. 

I wish someone would set me up with a blind date.  Only had one person suggest it to me and then took it back and said she would feel bad if it didn't turn out. 

I do like the idea of a Matchmaker, there is one in the area, but I don't think she has a very active service and she is very expensive. How much is yours Matchmaker trying2breathe.  I know this one lady who use to put on over 40 single dances, but she stopped.  She said guys would call her and asked if she would guarantee that they would get laid if they went. 

What is going on with the world?  Speaking of that my ex-husband contacted me through Facebook.  Haven't spoken or seen him in 27 years.  He apologized to me for how awful he treated me.  It has been interesting.

We live in a strange world, Needy (as an eHarmony add plays in background ... 'we found our best match in life' says one of the people on there) ...

Klim,
"do the rest of you feel like online dating brings in a certain type of person?"

I'm not really sure. Yes, there are lots of creeps, married people, losers, those that have no intention of ever meeting, those you think couldn't find a date any way else.
But, then there are us. We are none of the above. Maybe there are less of us but we are there. Is it just harder to find those like us because there are less of us?

It's hard to meet people in real life. At least for me. Single men my age just don't appear in front of me daily. I've been trying to meet people off line. I went Salsa dancing a few weeks ago and I went to a singles dance last weekend. No luck. I have more funny stories though. I may post them here soon!

Needytoo,
I have had the same reaction when I asked a few people to set me up. Initially they loved the idea and then they felt uncomfortable in case something went wrong. This blind date yesterday was from my hairdresser's daughter. Long story but she was so sweet and excited about it! Ironically I find her brother very intriguing but he is 10 years younger than me and I never saw it as an option. Yesterday she told me he just started dating someone 1 year older than me! Go figure!

Got a message from a man today online who clearly stated that he wouldn't be available to actually "date" for 7 months because he was on a state-sponsored vacation, but he'd be happy to text at any time.

Seriously.  It even had a pic of him in his cell.........

Had my teeth cleaned a few days ago, my dental hygienist is so full of information on on-line dating.  All her children found their partners that way.  She is so inspirational.
 

This just made me smile. Inspiration comes from the strangest places sometimes doesn't it?
