I'd try tinder, but my wife might take issue with that

Just remember as with anything there are a few nuts out there and always get a current picture. Talk to them on the phone for a bit. I had one who was deaf and did not tell me until we met... interesting conversation...
me too! will have been together for 2 years in Aug, married for 10 days

it's like any other dating, you have to be serious and honest about it and you can find the right person. it is a way to meet people who are looking for the same thing you are and you can weed out a lot of the bullshit.

i would recommend eharmony or match as the ones where you will find the people who are more serious about a relationship. and don't be cheap. expect to pay $20-50 a month on a membership, but if it is a priority to find someone, it is worth it.

I have decided that I am going to try online dating. I want to enrol myself in a online dating site that requires a small fee.

My theory is that I rather spend $40 a month on meeting a site full of singles rather than going out looking and assuming people are single and still spend $40 on a night of clubbing.

Keep you guys posted.

true. also the ones with the fees weed out people who are not serious about it. you have to be more serious about using the service if you have to pay a fee, so there aren't as many dead or inactive accounts and no responses.

good luck!

I believe more quality relationships happen online rather than a bar or club.

Go for it man. Like I said, if I was single again I would do it. At 30 years old going to local bars just isn't my thing and I've seemed to tapped all my friends friends and their gf's and wives friends at this point lol.

Good luck I would still rather do the free one's coupled with a pay one here or there in his situation what can it hurt to have a larger pool of candidates?

Online Dating

Met my current gf on Cupid. Been going out for almost 2 years and we now live together. I did the online thing for about 2 years on and off; I had a lot of success but it takes patience.

Also it helps if you are good writer - specifically one that can talk about themselves without putting anyone to sleep. If you say in your profile that you are "fun-loving" then you will not have success haha.

Be open, a little funny, but just try write about different things... Avoid coined details. No girl will give a **** what your favorite color is. Also, make sure you have nice photos... Active ones are really good especially if you are smiling. No mirror shots!!!

It's fun....it's easy.....and it's relatively cheap. I have never found anything worth more than few nights of fun though (...although a few have become good friends).

Interesting to hear some of the success stories in this thread. I've thought about online dating in the past, and it definitely seems like a far more 'targeted' way to meet women, but I'm skeptical sometimes about the quality of people on said dating sites.

Came across this "online dating: a better way to find love?" article the other day and it confirmed some of my skepticism... but also confirmed some of the positive aspects that have been mentioned in this thread.

For those too lazy to read the original article, here's a summary of the conclusions:

Quote:
"So, does online dating actually offer a better chance of establishing a healthy, happy, long-term relationship than traditional offline methods? At this point, the research suggests that this simply isn't the case. "There is no reason to believe that online dating improves romantic outcomes," says Harry Reis, a professor of psychology at University of Rochester. "It may yet, and someday some breakup recovery guide / service might provide good data to show it can, but there is certainly no evidence to that right now." (19)

Despite the fact that online dating fails to increase the odds of finding a lifelong partner, it still offers several welcome benefits. For one, it allows users to interact with other singles quickly and easily. Secondly, the presence of niche dating websites allows people to narrow the focus of their search to a very specific subgroup. But perhaps most importantly, internet dating websites offer a new place for single people seeking companionship to meet and interact, which is a welcome alternative to traditional meeting places such as bars and nightclubs."

OP how's the online dating doing?

Found this so I don't want to start a new thread.

.02
I've always thought that online dating were for desperate people (not really open minded about it until...) but having to work all the time and coming home at 11pm-1am, I am slightly intrigued at how online profile works. But idk man. Most of my friends don't even do or wouldn't even think about online dating. I guess with my busy schedule and tryna pay that college debt, I should reconsider my priorities.

On a side note, I do get asian (strictly) pus*ies from time to time (hint: a lot of orgs are based in the bay area. No they are not pros from the streets. They are more discrete and upscale. I would say an average of $140-$200.). BUT I pay for it haha. No shame. One day while I had some downtime at work, I did some math and figured out that free is more than paying for it. Gotta pay to play. On a good note, these providers are skillful in what they do (They're not porn stars).

I love online dating. Use a lot of colons when you write to women. Also, the ellipsis should have only three dots when used within a sentence; four at the end.

You're welcome.

not an actual dating site but I've gotten laid because of my twitter a few times. It takes the awkward part out of walking up to someone. Females find it strange when you walk up in real life but seem more reseptive when its on line, how the times have changed. Its a fun way to met people and possible murderers. I met the love of my life online.

Terrible. Forget everything I ever said. Here's how it goes for me.

-Monsters message me all the time-I ignore them and then I run to the bathroom and look at myself and say "am I ugly". This ruins my day usually.

-I message really hot girls-they either ignore me and don't even look at my profile or we go back and forth for 2 minutes and then they stop responding. My online game is tight as sh1t too. I know how to handle this lol.

-I finally find a girl I think is pretty cute, seems cool, etc. - we talk for a bit, she seems cool and we text. Then they want to meet up and I say ehhh I'm not ready for this online thing. I think it's a combination of being nervous to meet them and them not being pretty enough in my eyes or thinking they wont look like their picture.

Solly you're a mess. Online dating is fun. Stop being a pvssy and go meet the girls.

You sound like you have the same problem some of my friends have. Whether it's online, at bar/cafe, etc... you find someone you like you talk to them. Remember, you lose 100% of shots you don't make. I'm anti-social and an introvert, but when I see a woman I like, I keep it simple, Hi, you seem like someone I wanna meet, what's your name? That's it.
