It is so strange for me to meet people online through a web site. Have people really met and passed the stage of that's so strange. To me it's like a blind date I would never do. If people are really what they say they are on here , than why in the hell would they need to meet someone online here ? If they have a good enough explanation to get me past this I just may be interested. Hell I don't even make plans with people I already know. Partly because I have no time and yes because I already know them and it never went really anywhere ? Gotta run back to work. Just being real........
A child cannot discern the difference oft times between reality and fiction. In their dream land images become real, fantasy played out. Do you think that in becoming an adult the hopes and desires of that child dies? Computer dating is the fantasy land of the adult, a means of assessing without facing all the terror and rejection. The risk is acceptable. The rejection foreseeable and hence our ego remains intact. Once the danger of approval is removed, apart from the fear of being a psycho, not the person in the picture, not recognising the person in the photo, not being able to find anything in common etc ...lol ...it's really no different to saying hello to a stranger in the street. So yes we meet, and like meeting a person in the street, sometimes we discover there is chemistry and sometimes not. regardless there's an ego boost in knowing people find us attractive without having to reject personally also.
But really it is still all about the child... the fantasy that one day our prince or princess will find us, the hope that there is someone out there who understands who we are, our soul mate. Is it so strange that after looking our whole lives and not finding them that a medium such as this that opens the whole world is the logical conclusion?
As for time... it is amazing how much can be found when the right person knocks on the door. Priorities and all.
Well if you want to be real let me tell you young man, yes there are people who really meet on mm. I have met some wonderful people, I look at it this way, some people come in my life for a reason, some for a season and some for a life time, and that's the way I feel about it. So take it from there and don't be into your self so much....Enjoy life
WOW...I'm no millionaire, but I could travel around and take photos of some yachts and mansions and put them on my page.
You mention that you have been married several times. I'm not surprised. You make it clear that you are looking for arm candy. I hate to say this, but with all the photos you have in your profile, about the only thing you will attract are gold diggers. If you're not interested in going on a "blind date", then why even be on a dating site?
I have been an online dater for several years and I have met many interesting people. These types of sites provide an environment where people can hold conversations and possibly even have an opportunity to meet people they would not otherwise be exposed to.
I initially joined the dating scene because I was going through a very painful divorce and I wasn't quite ready to go out on real dates. I met nice men and held wonderful conversations. We shared stories and ideas and, sometimes, even chatted about nothing at all (a-la Seinfeld). As time progressed and the interest level increased, we would agree to talk on the phone or even meet for coffee.
I have had this conversation with many people and, like you, they were very skeptical about the possibility of meeting an honest and sincere person through this medium. The truth is, there are gamers and scammers just about everywhere you turn. You can see this as a place where gold diggers come to try to land a good catch, or, you can see this as an opportunity to meet people you may not otherwise come in contact with and take a chance that may change your life.
I believe there are good people here who are worth getting to know. However, the only way to find out for sure is to engage in the process. If you don't like the experience, then you didn't lose anything. But, you just might meet someone here who can offer you everything you want, need or desire.
if you don't do blind dates and Internet dating is like blind dating then why are you here...no one will respond to negative thinking ...and my opinion you are being negative and playing a catch 22 situation
That is quite funny and somewhat true, but I am a perfect example of a rare find - a sexy, loving, successful woman with an education, morals, likes to have fun, has charm and confidence and wants to meet someone extra special.
I work so much and only meet poor Salsa dancers in my line of work. They want me to take care of them!
This is a site that intersted me. I met three gentlemen on this site and each was okay, but just not what inspired me to go on a second date.
To be honest about your profile and photos- you seem arrogant but feel you need to show all your accomplishments including your trophy wife to show your self-worth. What message are you trying to send out? Are all the material things showing who you are?
I tend to speak my mind frankly, I hope I did not offend you.
