I’ve tried it for many years, and I’ve been on just about every site. But for some reason, I keep getting stuck with the same results . No one will really stalk him, and even if they do, who cares? When a man joins a dating website, it’s not really a huge risk.The way the current trend is heading, what will dating be like in 2030, and will that be a better or worse time to be on the dating market than 1995? I think the term “online dating” is part of the problem and makes people who don’t know much about it think it refers to people forming entire relationships online and only meeting in person much later.
I’ve already expressed my argument for why in two posts: one on how critical it is to find the right life partner and how seriously we should take that quest, and another on why going to bars is a terrible life experience.
The first step in ending up with the right person is meeting the right person, and for something so important in our lives, we’ve had for doing it efficiently and intelligently.
I’d say about 90% of the women on the dating websites I visit have kids. But dealing with the ex-husband who might be really possessive can be scary. I spent more time with the kid than I ever did with her. I didn’t have the time to learn about her, because I was too busy taking care of the kid. But when 90% of the girls online have kids, you’re basically relegating yourself to ONLY girls with kids.
Now, I know that it seems cruel to favor girls without kids, but – I’ve dated single mothers before. Also, when a woman has a kid, it’s harder to find any time to learn who the woman is. I played with him, disciplined him, tucked him in at night, and read him stories – the whole thing. So when we finally hit a small bump in the road, the relationship crumbled. And with Christmas around the corner, I’m simply not ready to be a father figure AND Santa Claus.
In fact, he probably won’t get any messages at all.
In my five years of being on dating websites, I’ve only gotten three messages that were initiated by women. When a girl joins a dating website, it’s a HUGE risk.
from Brooklyn, NY for suggesting this week’s topic: Online dating, once a fringe and stigmatized activity, is now over a billion industry.
Over 40 million Americans have given online dating a try, and over a of the American couples married between 20 met online.
The girls online who don’t have kids usually have other baggage.
