Online dating: noun. The process by which you waste thousands of hours and even more dollars for what you could have got from a hooker with a five minute conversation and an agreement on price. Often confused for romance, online dating is more a form of tedium that rarely has a good outcome.

List fails by not mentioning that your smaller, weaker date LOVES to go out to an empty cabin in the woods and see your axe collection.

I'm a legit 6-foot-4, but I've thought about lying about it on my profile, because I think it scares away the women who are shorter than, say, 5-foot-6. Women want tall men, but not that much taller than them.

I, my sister, my father (new wife), and my old coworker all met our spouses online. It's more likely than you think. The list is actually some pretty good advice; I wish it had been written back in the day when I first started using Match, although I only violated two of those a little bit. FWIW, the coffee scenario worked best for me.

Not that I have the numbers to make a proper conclusion, but this is what I've learned from my female friends: Tall & handsome > Tall & Ugly > Short & handsome > Short and Ugly. So take solace tall guys, your height that you didn't have to work for does more for you than the 5'5" guy's sixpack.

I'm 6'5", met my wife online, who is 5'4", and on this topic you're wrong.

Besides, it doesn't matter when you're lying down.

2012-10-07 12:01:35 PM
I don't understand all this. Do people really do all this silly stuff when dating? That must explain why so many talk about their exes as if they never really knew them -- they probably didn't. Just be yourself, and don't stress over it. If you're with someone for any real length of time, especially intimately, they're going to figure out who you really are sooner or later. If they're not going to like that person, isn't it better to avoid the needless stress of a misguided relationship based on misconceptions in the first place? And if the goal is to get into someone's pants, just be straight about that, and maybe you will, but still save both of you the needless hassle of a relationship neither of you really wants.

I liken this to the countless bits of advice about job interviews. I also believe in just being yourself there, too. If you and your prospective employer aren't actually likely to function well together as who you both really are -- which neither of you can help being, on the actual job -- then isn't it better to figure that out during the interview, so you can both move on to better options sooner rather than later, and avoid suffering through the needless frustration of working with someone you don't work well with?

I don't see any difference there: If you're hoping to be close to someone, you should hope to be close to someone who's going to like who you really are, not who you're capable of temporarily pretending to be. If you have to work that hard just to keep someone's attention for forty minutes, I think something's wrong.

The duct tape is handy for dragging the fat chicks but then I've ruined sod, flower beds and pulled up sprinkler systems. Those you usually have to roll depending on the situation.

The very first meeting of anyone you met online should be done over coffee or something equally simple. Do it at lunch so neither of you will have much time (or at least you have an excuse to end it). If that works out then set up a real date later. Don't waste time on actual dates with people you have never met, that's stupid.

2012-10-07 01:55:30 PM
What I took away from the article is you basically try not to have an online relationship with someone. Just use the web to become acquaintances, so you don't know too much before you meet. Go back to using physical sexual attraction as the major deciding factor. I've been that route and have two divorces to prove it.

I used to chat a lot. One girl and I used to message each other every few days about stupid stuff that was going on. This went on for almost two years. There was the normal BS stuff in the beginning, but having a post history made it pretty hard to keep a false story straight. We got to know each other and would call BS if things got OT. Found out our personalities had a lot similarities after the first year. People tend to talk about things with a safe anonymous stranger they wouldn't with people they might see the next day.

We decided to marry before we even met. The deal was no set date and opt out clause at any time. We met once; it was like knowing someone you've never seen. We knew everything about each others families, likes and dislikes - kind of odd how easy it was. We moved in together after meeting once. After a year we were taking a drive and the marriage date thing came up. Reno was 8 hours down the road. We've been married 12 years. We talk all the time and don't fight about anything. That's one advantage about long term online relationships, you don't have the body language signs to know when you've crossed lines - so you don't know when to shut up. The other person gets to know you well. If you don't know something after a couple years of in depth chat, something's wrong.

We really complement each others personality types and can enjoy experiences like you would not believe. Of course, we have very different clothing styles and people think it's odd when we talk on facebook across the room from each other - Hey, it works for us.



Three chat sessions before meeting? Waste of time in the long run. There's easier ways to find an ex-wife.

Did you spend the whole date talking about her mustache? Or just mustaches in general, hoping that she'd take the hint? I bet it was the mustache.
 
2012-10-07 02:28:21 PM
I've pretty much given up on dating, online or otherwise. I know I'm no prize, but I'd prefer to date someone who weighs less than an elephant. Unfortunately, it seems the only "hits" I get on my profile are from women who are ginormous. Let me repeat the facts. We skinny guys are NOT interested in fatties.

The dishonesty in profiles amazes me. When your stated age is 45, I'm going to have a hard time believing that photo that looks like it was taken in college. It all comes down to expectations. Guys want lingerie models, women want greek gods.

My last attempt ended in confusion. We exchanged a few messages. Her photo looked honest and we shared some things in common. We finally exchanged phone numbers. I called her, we chatted for a short time and she said she would call back that evening or the following morning. She didn't. I called her again a few days later (foolish of me). She apologized, explaining she had gotten the flu and would call in a few days when she felt better. She didn't. I gave up at that point. I don't know what I said that put her off. Perhaps she simply didn't like the sound of my voice. 

To put it short. What's this "what's this real-life date you speak of?"
 
2012-10-07 02:54:48 PM

OgreMagi: To put it short. What's this "what's this real-life date you speak of?"


It's quite simple. Despite what people say, we do not live in a particularly open society. It's all mapped out. Go to school, meet someone, get married. This must be done before 30 at the most. Everything in society is built around that. There are no institutions or rules about how older people are supposed to meet. What's worse is the differences between men and women really amplify the older you get. A 40 year old man could still look youthful, like me, and look completely ridiculous going out with a big, matronly 40 year old woman with a butch hairdo and flower-print dress.
 
2012-10-07 03:11:53 PM
Forget the nonchalant, "So, wanna hang out?" ask-out cop-out. You're online dating to find love (or sex), not a new pal. So ask the object of your Internet affection on a real date, with a suggested time and place.

Why is "hanging out" not a "real date"? Can you not find love or sex by "hanging out"?

Do not ask an Internet stranger out on a dinner date for your first meeting.

Wait, what? Isn't that a typical "real date"?

I'd even advise against something like a movie, since you can't talk and actually get to know each other.

Ok, so no dinner, no movie. So...hanging out?

Do not invite an Internet stranger to hang out with you and your friends on your first meeting.

Again, they give no real reasons why not.

Unfortunately, it seems the only "hits" I get on my profile are from women who are ginormous. Let me repeat the facts. We skinny guys are NOT interested in fatties.

The dishonesty in profiles amazes me. When your stated age is 45, I'm going to have a hard time believing that photo that looks like it was taken in college. It all comes down to expectations. Guys want lingerie models, women want greek gods.

My last attempt ended in confusion. We exchanged a few messages. Her photo looked honest and we shared some things in common. We finally exchanged phone numbers. I called her, we chatted for a short time and she said she would call back that evening or the following morning. She didn't. I called her again a few days later (foolish of me). She apologized, explaining she had gotten the flu and would call in a few days when she felt better. She didn't. I gave up at that point. I don't know what I said that put her off. Perhaps she simply didn't like the sound of my voice. 

To put it short. What's this "what's this real-life date you speak of?"


I feel ya, was my experience too. It can get you way way down. Did lots of online dating and I learned that the vast majority on those sites were not seriously looking for someone, or if they were they wanted me to meet every item on their 300+ wish list. Its as if they wanted their perfect person to just drop out of cyberspace and hand them the fairytale.
BUT it did finally work out for me (married one year this month), there are SOME genuine people online who are realistic. You just have to keep trying to find them. In my experience the article is wrong on #1 (kind of like Ficoce says but not as extreme). I found emailing/chatting for 2+ weeks before meeting really weeded out the non-serious people and those that are just after one night stands. Chin up. Good luck.

I agree with this article 100%.

No arguments at all, this is how it is.

ladyfortuna: JackieRabbit: Online dating: noun. The process by which you waste thousands of hours and even more dollars for what you could have got from a hooker with a five minute conversation and an agreement on price. Often confused for romance, online dating is more a form of tedium that rarely has a good outcome.

I, my sister, my father (new wife), and my old coworker all met our spouses online. It's more likely than you think. The list is actually some pretty good advice; I wish it had been written back in the day when I first started using Match, although I only violated two of those a little bit. FWIW, the coffee scenario worked best for me.


Agreed! Met my fiancé online.

And if you are spending thousands of minutes and dollars on dating websites, you are probably trying too hard.

It's not for everyone obviously, but doing shift work makes it hard to find dates in the traditional ways

What is wrong with going to Backpage, forking out $200 for a hooker and getting humiliated face to face?

Amen. I'm 6'1" and weigh 160. I'd like to go out without being compared to the nursery rhyme of Jack Sprat and his wife. A little chub on a chick is fine by me and but fat rolls are not.

I killed all of my online dating profiles, no cute girl wants a 300 lb dude. Winter is coming - more warmth, vodka, and movies for me!

Since it was 7 years ago, I don't know if they figured out a way around it, but after paying for one month of Match.com and getting annoyed at the morons looking for a quick 'hookup', I discovered I could change my user name to IM_____ (AIM name here). Voila, instant free contacts. I figure they must have fixed that by now, but I also figure people are still getting around it SOMEHOW.

/waiting for Lordfortuna to get home from the airport right now, in fact

"I was shirtless in my profile photo, so what's the big deal?"
