I'm trying to find some better avenues for meeting girls. I'm getting tired of the bar scene, and I'm not to sure about any of the online dating sites. I recently set up a Myspace site to keep in touch with friends in other states....and I've noticed there there are plenty of very cute single girls in my area.

I've never really messed with meeting people "online". I usually just walk up to them in person and strike up a conversation...and go from there.  What is the best way to get something going with someone from Myspace? Where do you start?

If I see someone on Myspace that looks like they may be fun to go out with....what would be a good message to send to them?  

I'm pretty lost here....I don't even know where to start. I have no problem meeting girls....but trying to find girls that are my age (30), don't have kids, have never been married, and don't have any kids or any kind of baggage, and are actually "professional".....is hard to do at a bar.

What's a good message to send to someone that I don't even know...but I would like to meet ?

Thanks

Myspace is the debil. It will destroy your life.  Look at these poor souls


Use Craigslist. More anonymity and control.

"You seem pretty interesting."

Then add some sort of question, like "I see that you [fish/hike/make tiny spanish galleons in bottles], that's pretty cool, what got you started with that?"

It's just like talking to them in person...but slower.

I don't "meet up" with or hit on wimminz online. Consequently, I can't be much help.

If I wanted to though. I'd just try to find similar nerdy geeks like me who have similar interests and tastes.

+1 I hope Roo is around here somewhere.  If not, let me know and I will send you a link to his myspace page.  He is the master at picking up chicks online.

Roo's myspace.

He actually finally got hooked by someone last I talked to him, and has cleaned up his act a lot.  He had an, as he called it, "myspace genocide" of all the women who where friends with him. I'm sure you can find some interesting stories, and I'm willing to bet he would be happy to add any of the Arfcrew as a friend.

I've met 2 or 3 women off myspace.  I found that getting right to the point works best.

"Hi, I'm freerider04.  I was looking around for people to meet in the xxxxxx area.  You sound like a pretty interesting person.  (ask some question pertaining to that persons interest)"

Wait for reply.

Lather, rinse, repeat.  The more women you ask, the better your chances.

It helps to have a good profile.  Include some good pictures, a descriptive "about me" section, and things like that.  Sell yourself.

I've gotten away from the online thing since I've found I am absolutely fearless approaching one particular woman in a group.  I can pick one out, move in, and end up befriending the whole group, while still showing my interest in the original woman.  I'm still too chicken to go after the lone girls

He's 30?
Yea, I'd avoid myspace.
The majority of single women your age on myspace are either crazies or uglies.

A friend of mine keeps in touch with a girl we went to high school with. She was a ho back then and still is. She is 38. I hear stories all the time about her meeting dudes off of MySpace. She has a stable of guys all the time, like 4 or 5 in rotation and the names always change that she has met on that site. She fucks them all. My point is that you are more than likely going to meet someone just like this if you are looking to get laid from MySpace. Don't say I didnt warn you.

You guys can laugh and flame away, but here is my lstory and suggestion.  I was in the military, and didn't wana meet girls from NC, i wanted to line up some possible women back in NY. So i tried match.com (sucked, ugly fatties) yahoolove (sucked, no turnover, same uglie fatties) and then while goofing on hotornot.com, i saw that you could pay 5 bucks and e-mail the girls, When i was deployed, i had 2 girls back home that were my MWR program on leave. Then when i got home for good i met a really sweet girl on there, have been dating for 2, and are getting married in a year. Now it might sound geeky, but we as men have certian look that we go for.  When your in a bar, you look for chicks with that look.  Why not skip the drinks and other BS and just get there number and talk to em. Also, "professional" women don't hang out in bars too much. They spend time alone at home, and on a lonley friday night they jump on these sites, be it myspace, yahoo, match............ and see if they can get a man. You go be that man. :)

Ps look out for outdated pictures, and look at there arms, fat arms increast the online FP (Fattie potential) and are a clue in that that chick likes the entire pizza and chicken wings.

Thanks for catching that.  I dunno how that happened, I guess that http://www.myspace.com/kangaro shows up at the top of the internet browser when on Roo's page, but his addy is actually http://www.myspace.com/kangaroo12001...I just typed it out before.  Sorry for that.
