Hi A Lady,
I feel for you. Maybe we can pray for eachother. I am batting zero too.
I am new here, but batting zero in life.
37, never married and for some reason it is hitting me very hard this year.
I have had TERRIBLE luck in dating. Granted, I only date about once a year or every other year. I have had a couple of scarey run-ins and I find it easier to just keep raising my daughter.
In the meantime, the years are ticking by and my heart is breaking.
I find it helpful to vent here, but this serves to make me look even more pathetic and then possibly someone will try and prey on my exposure.
Well, I have learned my lesson there, I am no dummy, just a lonely lady.
One thing that scared me from dating, or reaching out at all for 2years was when this charmer, (affluent and known in the community) tried to blind me by sweeping me off my feet.
Red-flags went up left and right, he was trying "too hard" and come to find out - GET THIS - the dog has
priors in 8 other states, a CHILD PORNOGRAPHER!
He was after my daughter!
I am sad, lonely and scared, but my heart keeps telling me some man is out there that will love me and my daughter unconditionally, true, forever and respect God.
Shut me up - I have rambled :-) Can you see me crying ;-)
I opened this thread hoping to find lots of success stories and hopefully some words of advice. I am happy for those of you who have found fun dates or, even better, a sweetie. Finding so few pages and posts reflects my experience on MM. So far I am batting zero. At the age of 62 I often wonder if it is age. Maybe 2007 will be better.
Now that I have seen your neck of the woods and left my son in Woodland Hills,almost your backyard..lol how coincidental is THAT...negotiating I-405 and 101 remain a nightmare for me.
HOw you guys could tolerate the heat and the traffic is a mystery for me.The sort of heat that scorches your hands when u touch your steering wheel of the car!
So your dating all these women would involve alot of zipping in and out of horrendous LA traffic..what a lot of devotion..no wonder there is a petrol crisis out there in LA...just imagining you zipping up and down 405..lol
Thanks for the long chat on every aspect of US life. See you next round. :)
It's nice to see that this site is working for some people. I still haven't paid for a membership yet. I'll decide after the first of the year if I want to join or not. Right now, I've received 4 winks today on another site that I've met several people on (just not the one). So far it seems to be the most successful site to actually have a face to face meeting on... at least for me.
bobsthename write: I've been on several dates from here, always a nice time, but never a connection. I made the mistake of asking one lady out to spend a weekend on my boat with me for our first "date". I got used and abused all weekend...big mistake. Yeah right. Well...ladies...sex on the first date isn't going to land you a keeper. But it sure is fun!
You are a brave man, Bob, signing up for a weekend with someone you never met and on a boat yet. Kind of limits ones ability to walk away. lol. I figure the odds with that are about the same as betting red or black on the roulette wheels in Vegas.
Are we the only ones that think MM works? Wow!!! We have the 2 Blondes; Lightening and Indian, both with formidable followings and the Goodlife who has guys drooling over her posting here, but only myself and one other gentleman replied. MM mgt. Take notice. Not exactly a glowing show of support by your members.
Glad to see some others agree that MM can work. It's worked well for me as I have met a bunch of fine people here and everyone has been better looking then their photos and fun people that I enjoyed spending time with. I think the key is to measure the results based upon your own, hopefully realistic criteria. I use MM to meet people when I am traveling and I don't know anyone. I don't use it at all for dating locally. Everyone I have met has been a result of the message boards rather than doing searches. I had a thread going over the summer called NORTH TO ALASKA which chronicles how the site works best for me. We all have our own agendas and expectations. The important thing to remember is to let the site work for you; don't end up working for the site
Well, I just wanted to share my experiences here with everyone.
I went out on a date last weekend with a female (Classy Lady) whom I met on this site and had a very good time also with Miss Gigi. She is a fun person and very nice also. We have spoken several times since and are trying to go out again and spend more time together to see where it takes us. She is just so sweet, and down to earth. I know we will have a good friendship from this point on too. We have so much in common and we really had a good time enjoying each others company for the hours we spent together.
I have a dinner date tonight with a second lady (Miss Sandy) I met on this site too. I can not give any specifics yet as I have not met her yet. I will keep you posted as to the outcome on that later.
I have also been in phone and email conversation with a third lady (Miss Carmen) and we will be meeting next weekend for lunch or brunch from this site too. I will keep you posted as to the outcome on that one also.
There seem to be quite a few individuals on this site who appear to be genuine. So for anyone wondering if this site works and has good morals people, I can say this- I definately believe it does. I will know more by next weekend when I have had the first hand experience of dating three individuals from this site to base my decisions on.
So keep up the hope, someone out there is right for you and waiting. But, be aware that there can still be evil and crazy/bad people preying on others!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Day, and are enjoying there Holiday Weekend. ttyl!
I have met several, gone out to lunch or dinner, not a real connection, I have flown out and seen several, still looking, but found a good bite, I'm gonna see what happens?
