The Official Online Dating Diaries Thread

I thought Catfish was a movie based on a young man's experience with a woman on Facebook. Turned out she lied about who she was. The movie came out about 4 years ago. It was a true story.

I tend to lose interest with online guys who don't want to meet after emailing for two to three weeks.

I knew someone that had a 'relationship' with someone over the phone, online, etc for over 2 years. I don't understand why someone would continue talking to and more so be faithful and committed to someone who doesn't even want to see her. I guess we were young and she believed the excuses. I have a friend who's going through the same thing..how do you tell someone?

Aside from delicately, you can't really tell someone what to do. I understand your POV, and frankly if it was my friend, I don't thinking could tolerate hearing it. But ultimately it's up to her I guess

He was supposed to come for her bday, halloween, and probably other times and every single time something comes up...so next time is supposed to be thanksgiving. I just know she deserves better.
This really cracked me up.....In one man's profile he wrote this....

I am loyal, so I don't cheat, but if I did cheat, you would be the 1st person to know, because I am honest.

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
Lol....that's funny!

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.

We went on a short break. Things were moving too fast for both of us. We didn't see each other for a couple of weeks, but met at Mass yesterday and spent the day together. We are better than ever now and are moving forward, but a little slower. I just looked into a couple of dating sites to see what was out there. Slim pickings for my age group.

I keep meeting guys unattractive guys w/ decent personalities and nicer looking guys w/ mental problems (like real, diagnosed mental disorders). Ugh!

And what is worse, the unattractive guys all seem to photograph well so I think they are better looking and agree to go out w them...and then sit there pissed off during the entire date! LOL

This has become comical! A cruel joke! LOL

3b (with 3c tendencies) on modified CG

Oh yeah, I went out on a first date this past Saturday. He told me he got divorced 8 years ago bc his wife cheated on him w/ one of her coworkers. And wghile we were eating dinner, who should walk into the restaurant but the guy she cheated with.

So we get into a long (and whiny) conversation about that. And then he directs me to a video of him on Youtube in which he is reciting a poem he wrote to help him deal with affrair. But in the poem, he takes on the persona of the guy she cheated with (presumably bc he believes he knows the thoughts and motivation of the guy and the details oft heir affair). And he told a friend at work about the video and soon the whole huge company knew about and it caused so much controversy and ill will, he got demoted.

And he actually shot the video in the parking lot of the church I attend.

so freakin weird!

But the fine-as-hell ones, want to kill themselves, don't speak to their mama, tell me I need to be popped in the mouth, need to borrow money, have more than one personality, etc.

gahhhhhhhhh

He thinks he is impressing me w/ his poetry-writing skills.

(I'm a writer but not really into poetry. And he's not that good.)

And I guess he thinks he "understands" the affair is now equipped to be a great boyfriend and is somehow more self-evolved.

(He just seems bitter.)

It wasn't on a first date or anything. We were in a relationship. We would say the most awful things to each other. I actually thought it was funny but apparently, it would make him really mad.

The more I told people about our little spats, the more concerned they got.

And eventually, I got concerned, too. Not sure why. I never thought he would actually do anything to me. IDK...I guess just bc he was nutty in general.
