whats your opinion of it?
Everybody ought to try it once.
its for people who cant meet people in real life.... general UGMOs and psychos.
You DO realize that a lot of decent looking girls use the internet for random hook ups, right?
I've seen it work great for some people, fine for others, and I have at least one friend that swore of dating for a month b/c of it.
it's just another way/venue to find/meet women.
Nothing really good or bad about it...just don't rely on it as your sole avenue for interaction.
One WHOLE month?
Yes, for him, this was a long time to lay off.
I think it tends to attract people who aren't happy with themselves, or are in general guarded. Mostly used by people who fear face to face contact with the opposite sex IRL.
I think if you go into it knowing that its just a catalyst for and IRL interaction and not a replacement for it, you'll do much better. If you suck at IRL dating, you're probably not going to do well at online dating because the whole point of using online dating sites is to eventually meet someone in person, right?
Only thing it really helps is that first step of walking up to a stranger, not knowing if she is married/taken/single/not looking, is she pissed, is she not wanting to be bothered, etc..... Problem is of course a shy person can come up with a great profile/email because they have time to think about it.
Throw them on a date and stumbling around for 15mins is the end of it. (thinking back, I missed out on at least one chick that wanted to fuck and 2 very cool girls that we might have hit it off)
it's convenient and people feel irrationally self-conscious about it because they are afraid of criticism from the Yuppy's of the world, and i don't see the big deal.
if you're not up for going out and doing it the traditional way, i.e., starting conversations with strangers, making passes at your friends, and going to clubs/bars, for time constraints or social anxiety or whatever reason, then this is the only option. so do it and stop stressing.
even if you ARE doing the traditional methods, you might as well do it for those extra opportunities that you could otherwise miss.
I joined one last night solely for the reason to smash someone
less than 6 hours later I was pounding some girl in her garage
got seconds today when I woke up
its like crabs in a bucket yo
like crabs at a buffet
i met my current girlfriend through OK Cupid. here's why it works for some people
if you're fairly introverted OK Cupid is a good place to meet girls who share your interests. i have a sprinkling of extrovert-type interests, but im also content to stay inside and read a book, watch a documentary or some cartoons. where do i go *out* to meet someone who likes to stay *in* was a problem i had. i would used to meet girls i couldnt keep up with, they wanted to go to shows all the time, and i just wasnt THAT into it.
so, go on the internet, talk a lot, make sure they arent bitches, and try your luck in person
the internet exists. you use it to your advantage in a lot of aspects of your life already. so use it to your advantage when it comes to dating. whats the big deal
no big deal at all
you can buy products off of the internet, people even, what's wrong with dating?
And this was worthy of a bump because...?
Jesus...could've at least just posted your bragging in the current online dating thread.
this place is huge, I was looking everywhere for a current online dating thread
my EDU, lol:
after months of helping hundreds of guys on here get laid and/or start relationships off of it i'm burn out on giving advice though. It should just get archived
Met my current gf on pof
Shirtless pics DO get more messages, regardless of what that dude said. It was proven by statistics. The closer you are to 30, the less difference it makes
As for online dating .. Waste of time unless you're male model.
Shut the fuck up.
