Question Why do so many women resort to online dating these days?

Is it partly because there's so many guys like me, shy and messed up in the head?

It's just that as a guy who is required to make the first move all the time(which I haven't done yet) I feel women should have a relatively easy time getting dates. Remember, I said relatively. Don't bitch to me about how hard it is if you think it's hard.

the dont bitch out part made me laugh...

women are a bizzarre, bizzarre gender.

i'm a chick and i dont even understand girls.

but i'd say internet dating is kinda easier because you have the anonymity of the internet, so that your first encounter with a guy ur not like, omg, he's looking at my fat, is my hair a mess, all that shallow shit, and, ideally, you'll get to know someone before you decide to meet.

personally, i dont really dig internet dating, i'm just a little old-fashioned, and i really need to know someone before i start dating the just cuz, i dont want to waste my time with meaningless hook-up and dates that go no where.

i'm also just really, really picky about who i date... but that is just me.



it's just, we all know women are insecure, and a lot of times the idea that guys are insecure too, fucks with them...

personally, i like shy guys, it balances out my crazy outgoing....
and i also like scars, cuz it just shows they've been through something, like me.

a lot of girls just have too much baggage to deal with someone else's as well.

I'm a definite feminist amazon type who feels like if a woman wants something she should step up and have the balls to take it. A lot of guys don't respond to that very well though. I think a lot of people are resorting to online dating though, especially people who are unhappy in the relationships they are already in. That's why so many online dating commercials say that it's okay to look. Individuals feel like if they just see what's out there it's not cheating.

Well, I think women should take a step and risk rejection if men have to, especially with all the talk of equality of the sexes these days. However, I think a lot of women have reasons for not approaching men. It's probably usually fear.

Your definitely right about that. I think that so many women also are stuck in the past of thinking that some man should come and rescue them from loneliness. You know. The classic knight on a white horse that will see them from afar and instantly see past the external appearance. Haha. What a joke!

All my better relationships have come from online dating, they seem to last longer, think its cos you talk for weeks or months before you meet, have not done it for years though and my last couple of relationships with girls i met in pubs etc have been train wrecks.

On line or real world, two things are generally true.....

The Guys are looking for younger, prettier, thinner....

The Ladies are looking for status, money, power....

It's how we all were programed.


I wouldn't hesitate to approach a woman I was attracted too...and I welcome a woman that approaches me...Always have liked women who are aggressive...

I'll be honest. I have this assumption, that may be incorrect, that people who date online can't get dates in normal life. If I dated some chick online it would be because I can't approach one in real life, except for maybe a prostitute(not enough of those around here, though).
