The Official Online Dating Diaries Thread

Like Tree548Likes

I have met all 3 of boyfriends online. I think it's easy to filter the genuine from the creeps.

2 I met on POF and the current I met on Jdate. Works for me! Pretty sure I'd be a 27 year old virgin without it.

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.
I love that the guys you dont like are the ones who work the hardest to pursue you and the ones you do like, take their sweet time. Dating is so annoying!

About the metro guy, I cant afford to shop the way he does and frankly I've had exactly 2 facials and 2 massages my entire life and Im in my 30's!

And we just went on date 3 and he still hasnt even tried to kiss me? WTH is that about?

Question:
How long do you ladies usually casually date someone before deciding whether to be exclusive or not? 3 months? 5 months?

Lol, no Im not sure he;s into chicks! He has a 20 yo daughter, thats all I've got.

Wow, 6 months, ok. I met all of my previous boyfriends the old fashioned way, without the internet and we were exclusive probably within 2 months, thats why I ask...
6 months is long to me too. I usually know if I want to be exclusive/get more serious by 2-3 months (sometimes wayyy sooner-- of my 3 long-term, live-in relationships, we got serious pretty fast, and I am still good friends with 2 of them), and if they guy still isn't sure or doesn't want to be after 5 or 6 months, I'm out. It's been about 1 month with a guy I met on OkCupid, by far my favorite of the sites I've tried, but I don't have a feeling yet how far I want this to go. I want to be open to meeting other people still, but I see this guy a few times a week so haven't had much time, lol. Also, I admit, it's hard for me to keep track of who's who when I'm seeing multiple guys.
Formerly Urbancurl.
Medium-high density, fine-medium, low-normal porosity, 3b/c, permanent color.
CG, no heat, combs, brushes, parabens.
Fall/Winter HG=Alba Botanica Soft Hold Style Cream.
Spring/Summer HG=MGA Sculpting Gel
Current fave LI=Madre Labs Made by Nature for Baby Conditioner.
Limit oils, butters, glycerin.
So I'm wondering if any of you understand this phenomenon: why do some men "favorite" you but don't actually write you? Are they married, just looking? Shy? Would you write them first if you were interested?

And I am kind of indecisive...and have to be really sure before I make a commitment cause im afraid I'll settle...and miss out on something better. So I have to be sure he's what I want. And that number is really abstract because I tend to not find guys I want more than a few dates with...

Well,after texting with the guy from class last night, he basically made it clear his life is too busy and complicated for any "drama" right now. In a long-winded description, he stated he's still bitter and hurt over his divorce, and is trying to rebuild himself and immersing himself in his job.

All of this is not a surprise, as he's always blowing me off and giving the same excuse that "he's got a lot on his plate right now", but it would have been nice if he'd made this clear a month ago when suggesting we hang out.... I'm angry because I feel like he led me on without saying much,and I guess was feeling good because I was giving him attention. Typical ******* move,let the chick puff your ego even though you know you're not planning to have any type of relationship with her. I'm pissed.

I just started online dating about 6 weeks ago. I am having a great time, and have met three really nice guys. But I really had to weed out the morons. It's a different world. I notice the men start to chat and then disapeer for about two weeks...then boom back again wanting to chat. I call them "serial daters". So far so good. Oh and I'm 56 so this is really strange to me! LOL
i am SO squicked right now by the testimony at the child murder trial where they are trotting out a bunch of ex-girlfriends of the accused and he met them all on PoF!

YUCK!

*very* glad my profile is hidden right now!!!!!

I reactivated OKCupid and Match last night. Almost ready to update the pic on POF. And so the weeding out begins. They say girls are needy?? Hah! This was my conversation this morning via Yahoo.
Him: how's it going
Me: things are really crazy here today
Him: where's here?
Me: I work in a hospital
Him: which one?
Me: (silence)
Him: so tell me about you
Me: (silence)
Him: how long have you been single? what are you looking for on this site? What do you want in a guy?
Me: that's way too much for me to IM right now from work. Told you it's crazy here today

In all fairness, I wasn't lying about the three ring circus that is my office today. I think I just lack the patience to attempt dating anymore.

If they take you out on a date and then you continue to remain active on the site (obviously you woudn't be talking to them on the site bc you would already know their phone number), it will be clear to them that you aren't especially interested in them.

Similarly, if they have you favorited, they will remember your username if they should ever want to block you in the future for reasonable or nefarious purposes.

When I join, I will spend the first few weeks, going out w/ a many guys I can, who meet my qualifications. Then I start whittling away like crazy bc I can't keep up that frantic, crazy schedule of dating a different guy every free night of the week and three on wknds. It's just exhausting.
