The Official Online Dating Diaries Thread

Oh gosh, I posted this in the other thread but lazy and continuing it here, I have a date with my guy again and I'm so nervous. Mainly because he's staying over which I've never preplanned nor have pple stay unless they are bfs and it's been a while, but his place is an hour outside the city. It's going to be so weird having a guy at my place(although I'm super excited)! Oh yea we're going to local historic dive bar tonight.

Hey it was pretty good, I don't know if it was great but maybe my expectations are too high. The bar we went to first was kind of empty so we just stayed for a drink and then went across the street. We drank, talked for a while and then went back to my place, had fun , then had a beer on my balcony (it was nice outside and i have a nice view) and talked for another hour or so. Didn't get to bed til almost 3am and he had to get up at 530am. I went back to sleep and went into work later around noon, it was still a rough day.

Overall, I still like him, but I prefer someone a bit more manly and flirty, but it doesn't really matter since he's leaving soon and he's really just a 'friend' now, lol. I won't see him this weekend, he's going to Nashville and Memphis for a weekend trip. I think we're going to the Falcons preseason game next Friday.

This topic is so intriguing. I met my boyfriend online on a minecraft server of all places. He lives an hours train journey away and we have been seeing each other several times a month now since November (were friends on skype for a year before that).😌

I just can't imagine meeting someone on a dating site. I've never actually been on any kind of date, I think I'd bomb and just start stuttering.

So I am still tired from wednesday night and my friend has a bday dinner tonite, which I am not looking forward to since it's earlier than I'd like(I have no time to relax when I get home before getting ready for this thing).

My guy's nashville plans cancelled and he's going to be in town with his friends tonight(they share a car) and wants to meet up. I kind of just wanna stay home and sleep. Or sleep and then meet up later. I'm feeling cranky. I need a nap and not sure how I'm gonna get one. I may have to leave work early but then I may have to work over the weekend.
Saw him on Saturday instead(Friday didn't work out) and it was nice. Went to a heavy metal karaoke bar(but it wasn't that heavy thankfully for me and some pop rock) and heard some of his music. It was interesting and very fun. He played my guitar that I ordered on a whim once that I haven't used yet. Really interesting as well to hear about cultural issues from a western European since it's so different from here.
i'm being a snob and i know i'm being a snob, but i can't help it; i want someone in my life that i can TALK to!

over the past couple of weeks, i've had messages from guys on PoF who obviously are NOT reading my profile - the stereotype NASCAR, hunting, fishing, he-man type. and their careers have been: long-haul trucker, superintendant, janitor, though most people make up something cute for that setting.

AND.... education levels have been high-school or "some high-school".

i've been deleting the messages without responding.

because i'm a snob...

and i shouldn't feel like i have to apologize for wanting someone with more of an education and a job and at least a couple of the same interests.

So me and the guy I started going on dates with early last month, are basically 'official' now. It's weird, it's been a month since our first date already! Time flies, I guess. Anyway things are going good

@rouquinne you're not being a snob. Honestly, you sound just like me (and if you're a snob, that means I am ).

POF is the worst for people not reading profiles. Some of the messages I used to receive were so clearly from people who had not read my profile and, quite honestly, were probably just messing me because they liked my pictures and not because we had anything in common.

Bad spelling, horrid grammar, mundane 'hey sexy xx' type things as an introduction. It was all just pointless.

This doesn't make you a snob, it means you have a great head on your shoulders and know you're worth more to have someone at the same level as you

I hated POF with a passion... nobody read mine either. I can't even count how many booty call messages I got, or people wanting to put me down to make themselves feel better. It's so ridiculous that we have to subject ourselves to these people. I wish somehow dating sites could weed out all the junk.

I realized this Saturday is also a month since my first date with the guy I'm talking to. It's pretty light, and I'm probably only gonna see him a couple more times until he leaves. Ahh.. It's been fun but a bit frustrating since he confuses me.

Unfortunately at this point I'm playing the game of holding out and not contacting him on purpose until he does.

ETA - nm, I have issues lol. I heard from him yesterday to make plans for the weekend.

In other news, what do you guys do when you're not that interested in someone anymore and they keep contacting you? The tinder guy from months ago still calls or texts occassionally even when I told him I'm not interested in anything right now. He asked if we can still keep in touch and I said yea, but he attempted to try to meet up too soon and then he asked if i wanted to have drinks at his place, I mean really dude.

I'm back in the dating game again. I've been getting a lot of young guys contacting me. They all say the same thing..."age is just a number". My profile says I'm looking for a serious relationship. I don't respond to anyone who I don't like their profile or looks, so I guess I'm a snob too.

There are 3 who I'm interested in meeting.
From Michael Berg:

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."

So tomorrow is the last meeting with the German . Looking forward because I haven't seen him in 3 weeks. He's been on a 2 week west coast trip. Leaves for good Monday.

In other news I saw my ex finally since he dislocated his shoulder again and sounded like he was in really bad shape. He wants to get back together and supposedly will do whatever it takes and he was wrong and scared bla bla. Why?? For the first time in a year I am over him. This is messing with me since a tiny part is considering it. And I don't want to ruin the last night with my dude.

Tinder guy finally stopped texting and calling.

OMG!!!

remind me to NEVER respond to anyone who is too far away, even when he writes" I know I'm too far away and I'm fine with just online chatting" because the one who lives 2.5 hours away (which might as well be the other side of the world to someone who doesn't drive) started yapping at me today about things we might do together and when i pointed out that it wasn't exactly feasible given the distance wrote back "Yes, but you're still alone".

well, thank you - i really didn't know that!



delete and block!

then there was the one from The Biebs hometown (an hour away) who wrote that he finds me "very pretty" and would i like to chat. he obviously didn't read my profile since he's got full-face-fuzz going on (a look that *rarely* appeals to me) and when i read his profile it says he has a high school education, works in retail and his hobby is "going to the gym".

*sigh*

i get another message the next day and didn't respond to that one either.

got a torrent of abuse email this morning about how i'm old and fat and i shouldn't be so picky.

oooooh, yeah, like i haven't heard *that* one before!

At the urging of others and despite my better judgement, I went out on a date witha guy I met at the post office last week

No high school diploma
No GED, because he tried to take the test, but you know, math has changed since the 90s
He may or may not have a job. It may or may not be in landscaping
He may or may not have been in prison. Twice. It may or may not have been for drugs
He may or may not have warrants
He may or may not be able to leave the state

When the waitress came back, I just said (and yes, in front of him) " Can you just bring me the check so that I can pay and escape from him. Please save me"

sigh
