Okay I read all these blogs complaining about online dating and dating sites. Well just to make me sound old (or horny) I have been using the internet as a dating source for 10+yrs. After several fun times and one ex husband (yes I met him in a chat room) I am still all for it. Sure the plague of stupid people and scams are getting more and more popular but I just ignore them. I think of it this way if I let them get to me then they win so f**k them that way I win.

I know as a woman it is easier to find guys on here there is just more of them. But I also know it’s not impossible for a guy to get lucky as well. (ok least the guys I meet are) Sometimes it just takes a little patience and screening through the crap. I have met, gone out with and yes even had sex with several guys off this site and other sources. Even now I still see a couple guys I met right here on AMD.

I am totally honest in what I say or advertise online. Sometimes to honest and have been known to scare away a few guys. ( some aren’t as open-mined as I am) I have also found with a little effort in the screening process that the men I talk to are honest as well. I have never had a guy that is seriously trying to get in my pants turn out to be a fake or a liar.

I have a very simple yet has been very effective screening process of some online chat, a phone chat and then a public meeting. Often just to make things low pressure for both parties its nothing more than a cup of coffee in the middle of the day.

I have met several men this way. More than I really care to count, but not once have I ever had any issues with anyone. They have all been nice and close to (if I haven’t seen a pic) if not exactly what I was expecting. Some I didn’t click with and I am more than willing to let them know right away. A few guys that need to grow a pair have done the don’t call or say another word again thing. But I have learned to just move on they were probably not worth it anyway. I don’t like games so I don’t play them either.

My opinion is this:
Why go out to some smelly bar just to wade through a pile of drunks and there rude comments trying to find the one actual human being that isn’t a train wreck.
I personally think deleting rude emails is a lot easier than pushing some drunken asshole off of me.
I would rather decipher someone’s bad typing than someone’s slurred speech.
I would rather read naughty chat than have a strange guy trying to lick or grab some part of me at a bar.
I would rather have to block the annoying guy that can’t take a hint than worry about who’s trying to follow me home on my way out to my car.

Well stated and valid argument, could serve as a lesson to bar going guys as well.

I'm not a bar going person either. Hell, I have never even been in a bar before and don't drink. Haha

Agreed, very well put.... Internet meeting is great. There is nothing like the delete and block button. You are not showing your age, just the side of thinking outside of the Box, all are positives. Being that I am a guy as well as A smoker I do go to the bar to.

Oh Yeah! Be Careful! Like the roll of the dice, These can be the days of your life!" Ooops SnakeEyes! YOU LOSE! What then Pretty Lady? It happened to my brother in law last April first on the way to Brazil to Marry the woman he met online and visited a few times! Oh, listen to this! He arrived in Sao Paulo and after being with her for two days (They never had sex!) she drugged him and kept him under 3 different drugs at a time. One was like a "Truth Serum" the other two were "Date Rape Drugs" that kept him incompasitated or unable to move. After getting all his pin numbers and bank identifications and passwords She and her real (married) boyfriend, bilked him out of over $200,000. Then on the 6th day which was April 1st 2006, No Fooling, she took a copper wire and choked him to death! Then had another accomplice take the body in his rental car, took him out of the area and doused him and the car with diesel fuel and set him ablaze! His remain arrived last week after 9 months of gruelling investigation on my wife's part because there was no one else to do it! It's been on TV and in most papers! Check the internet for Raymond Merrill murder victim! It can HAPPEN TO ANYONE! EVEN YOU! BE CAREFUL BABE! sorry for yelling.

Sorry for what happened to your brother in law Riko. But first of all I would never travel outta country thats just not wise to begin with. Also thats what the public meets are for if I get a weird feeling of any kind I leave. And any way you look at it online or real life dating there are risks. I am just saying meeting online is easier than trooling bars.

holy shit, riko, that's a crazy, awful story. My condolences.


But for the most part, I think ksk has a nice take on things. There are no fewer loonies in the real world than there are online. I can see why she appreciates the ability to shove people out of the way (virtually) when she dislikes them.

Online dating is fine as long as it stays online. There are no embarrassing moments when you meet, it doesnt cost either person a cent, and you can remain friends forever. The nasty reality factor always screws things up.

I've been on a few dating sites over the last 4 years and just like meeting people in a face to face situation, they are not always what they seem to be. Some are friendlier than others and those are the ones (showing a long list of friends is not what I mean by friendly) I find myself attracted to. It's the ones that show some caring when they right, a little respect & the common courtesies.... Oh well starting to ramble on the point is I'll be using dating sites til I find my next very special someone....
