Have any of you tried any of the 'dating' services on the internet? If so, how did it work out? Successful or not?
Link Posted: 5/19/2003 11:28:33 AM EDT
Tried it a couple years ago, it actually worked, in that I got a date with a reasonably attractive brunette (teacher, lived alone, could hold an intelligent conversation). She didn't like the fact that I was so busy, since at the time I worked nights and also went to school full time. I met my fiancee (a redhead)[naughty] shortly thereafter, but it was nice since it had been a while since I had even gone on a date. Have a decent picture of yourself ready to post since most womenz expect that.

I have a buddy that has seen more ass than a New York taxi cab, and it is all because of internet dating. I prefer to meet em in person, but you can do quite well.

Its very easy, so are the womenz. Its not hard to get in touch literally with the horny but no relationship types. Just were many condoms. But its amazing how many are out there and easy it is to meet people.

I did it once and met a nice girl. She was a hot 19 year old blonde; I was 24. We enjoyed each other's company for a few months, and the sex was great. We parted company as friends. We liked each other a lot (besides the sex [;)]), but we were at different places in life and had different goals.

Some places limit you to viewing only x number of ads per day if you're not registered. That way, you can get the full view before plunking down the cash?

I guess it depends on how you define 'successful'. I have a friend at work who does the online dating thing regularly, and we end up talking about it quite a bit. Overall, it's like the old saying.....you get out what you put in. He's met a number of women...one he dated for close to a year. Nothing too long term, but he doesn't have regrets over any of it, and I think he's still friends with two or three. Bottom line....a good pic is an absolute must. A good pic and a dull profile will go miles beyond a bad pic with a good profile. Chose honesty over fancy in describing yourself, and above all be up front and honest about what you are looking for. I lost count of the number of women he 'screened' (as in, chatted up but never asked out)....you take a little time, and invest a little conversation work, and you can go a long way weeding out the 'undesireables'. The only downside to it is cost. I think he pays something like 25.00 a month for Match.com. Why not go for it....so long as you use common sense, there's not a lot to lose, and it sure beats clubbing...

I met my current girlfriend online. Matchmaker I think was the one we used. It's been 2 years, she's great and we're moving to VA together. Just adding my success to the mix. GL and do LOTS of talking back and forth to get a feel for them before you even go for the phone.
Link Posted: 5/19/2003 6:54:33 PM EDT
I tried it but I wasn't happy with the results. Alot of the women (at Match.com) tend to misrepresent themsevles in their profiles. They'll say that their build is average but they'll include a picture which shows that their build is above and beyond average. That goes a long way in showing that they are not honest.
Link Posted: 5/19/2003 7:09:12 PM EDT
I met my wife as a result of an ad placed at the old love@aol site. Kind of weird, we had seen each other about a year prior. She had been my Mom's nurse when she had surgery on her thyroid. I went through a bunch of girls before finding a keeper. One weekend I went out with four different girls. Why not try it?

I am sure some of the men do the same thing. But I agree, if a person lies about their looks and then post a picture that proves they are lying, why believe anything they say.
Link Posted: 5/19/2003 7:32:21 PM EDT
I have been tempted to try myself here. I got some bad stories from dating already, may aswell add some more. Maybe I'll get lucks and she will chop me up and kill me.

I have never met anyone from a dating site, but I have from chat rooms and shit like that. Couple of thoughts: -Don't even bother with anyone that just posts a picture of their head, or even worse their head at a strange angle. These people are fat, ugly, or just plain fucked up looking. If you are too, then that might be ok. -Be honest. If you are fat, ugly, have kids, take care of a sick old grandpa, whatever the hell is wrong with you, be upfront about it. I'm a tall skinny asshole with tattoos, guns, and a Harley, and I tell women that right from the get-go. Nobody is going to tell me later that I lied about who I was. -Everyone on the internet is fucked up. If you're on there looking you're fucked up too though, so that's ok. When I was online before I was going through a tough time in my life and used it as a booster. I'm on again now mostly because my girlfriend gave me the boot a couple of months ago. It's a good place to meet a rebound chick or 10. Just be aware that most of the people are rebounding. If all that didn't scare ya off, I'll post some more later. haha. By the way, if you're a girl looking, most of the guys, I'd say 99%, are looking to get laid and that's it. The ones that say they aren't are too. I've had the most luck by convincing these women that I'm not looking for sex when in fact that's exactly what I'm looking for.

I guess what I should have said is that it will be more obvious. Women I've talked to online have had men send them messages and emails that are blatant and graphic. Just like on here, alot of people get brave behind a computer screen. I was just trying to prepare you for getting replies like "wanna fuck?".

Ogre 4070, you may be missing out on the best dating service going! If you indicate you are "looking" on this site you are likely to be deluged with offers. At least you have a couple things in common from the get-go; guns and AR15. I suspect most everyone on these dating sites are looking for sex. Most people in mature relationships are interested in that. The question is, is that ALL they want or do they want a more complete relationship? Hell, if sex is ALL you want, it is cheaper to buy it than "wine & dine" it. At my point in life I still enjoy sex but it is no longer a compulsion like when one is 16! Some person is going to get RICH by creating a site that caters to those who want to date people with an interest in guns. GB is missing a golden opportunity - AR15 dating. Charge a fee, allow a unique username and off we go!!

I dunno, I haven't been impressed with the quality I see at the range. The only hot chick (and she is damn hot) that shoots in my IDPA club is married, and to a really cool guy that also happens to be a Marine. Otherwise it's geezers and nasty hos. I don't think I'd be inclined to chase after most gun chicks. This is where ya'll will start posting pics of hot chicks you've seen with guns, but they are few and far between. Most chicks that are into guns are there because of a husband/boyfriend, which means that they aren't really in play. (although, there really isnt ANY woman who's not in play, some just take more work than others)

Yeah, I dunno about that, sounds like a sausage party to me. I know theres women on here and all, but the ratio has got to be about 100-1. Just get AOL. I used to get all kinds of ass off there before I got with my current girl friend a few years back. They have a dating service on there too, but just putting up a profile, and IMing women seems to be enough.

I dunno, do you shoot in my IDPA club, and are you married to a marine? If the answer to the first is yes, and the second is no, then I'd have to see a pic. If the answer to both is yes, then I'd say you're hot as hell. Since you're in VA, I doubt you fly all the way down to Ft. Lauderdale once a month for an IDPA shoot. By the way, lots of those geezers and nasty hos could drop me where I stand.

Well said grasshopper. You and I actually can agree on something. Sidebar about cheating: Cheating starts a long time before any two people start fucking. For the cheater, the marriage/relationship is already over, they just don't have the decency to leave. They want to still have the security of two paychecks, or they "do it for the kids" or whatever other bullshit. The bottom line is that anyone who cheats was already done with their marriage before they ever even met the person they cheat with. This is why the biggest fool in the world is someone who takes back a cheater. They don't love you, they never will again, it's only a matter of time before they cheat again. Most cheaters want to get caught so that they won't have to actually do the breaking up. The whole thing, on both sides, is fucking pathetic. Cheaters and those that take them back are weak, and I can't stand weakness. And the best part? If you've got kids you're raising them to be the same weak piece of shit that you are. Now, with all of that said, some of those weak women sure are good in bed...[;)]

Based solely on my biased opinion, which is derived from my experience. I sold guns for two years in college, so I've seen the gamut. Unfortunately the only women that were buying guns without hubby/boyfriend were either: 1) Going to the police academy. Most of these also washed out 2) Lesbians. I sold two lesbians matching Ruger wheelguns and magsafe ammo which they eventually used in a double suicide. From what I understad from the responding officer, this was not a pretty scene. 3) Transexuals. One of my best customers did not come into this world as a woman, but she'll leave it as one.
