What the heck kind of an icebreaker is, "So, do you have any tattoos?"

I'm considering joining Match.com.

I put-up a profile and keep getting all these messages which I cannot see because I haven't paid to join...

Hmmmmm.

I have several possible guys in my life right now. I'm waiting for them to make a move.


It's kind of frustrating for me - I'm the outgoing type for seeking friendship, don't hesitate to ask guys out, etc., but I have discovered that in romantic relationships, I HAVE to let the guy make the first move. If he doesn't he's either not interested enough in me or he's too intimidated by me. That doesn't mean he has to actually ask me out, but he has to go out of his way to spend time with me and be around me and show interest.

D - let us know if you do Match! I bet there are more decent guys on it in NYC than there are here.

Here's my idea...I'm going to wait until I have 100 messages waiting for me and then I'll pay to join. (I already have about 30 and it's only been a day.)

Because if there's 100 guys, odds are there's two or three nice ones...

Join now! All 30 could be nice. I've been on dating sites and met a number of guys from them in person. And honestly, there wasn't a single one (who made it to the in-person meeting stage) who wasn't nice. I still casually keep in touch w/ a few. It's not going to be a perfect "love connection" every time but you will have a lot of fun just going out and getting to know them. Don't psyche yourself out!

I'm going to go for it!

What's $100 in the long haul?

Besides, emails are deleted after 30 days, so I'd hate to let a really nice guy slip by because I took too long to join.

My therapist always used to encourage me to do online dating because she knew how shy I was.

I'm not sure how welcome I am on this thread since I'm not officially "dating" anymore, but I did meet my fiance online...so I'll give it a shot. It wasn't through a traditional dating site, but through a forum/chat where we had shared interests. (Kind of like how people meet on NC.com and sometimes have IRL get-togethers.) Have any of you guys tried visiting sites where its totally not a dating site and met someone that you might be romantically interested in? You can't really go in with the idea that you'll meet someone of course, but I always think it's easier to meet someone with something in common besides being single. Just my .02.

You mean the one that just casually mentioned his girlfriend to me? (Had no idea she existed )

i've been doing that since 1993 - it hasn't helped.

(eta: yes, 1993, no that is not a misprint.)

Charming!!!!



It would be nice if you did not weigh a ton. Curves are great, I love curves on a woman, but I do not have a huge figure, and you should not, either.

any good ones in there CIBC?

Oh, he didn't write it to ME, it's in his profile and he sent me a message...and that was quite a turn-off!!!!!

Seriously, if a girl who "weighs a ton" emails him, why not just respond?!?!?!??!

And he also writes that he looks crappy in photos and is much better looking in person...

Can i respond with, "Please do not message me if you don't look good in photos. I don't want to risk ruining vacation and wedding photos."

I kinda want to write him back and tell him what a turn-off that part of his profile is even for a thin woman to read.
