oh, love, i feel like i dont even need to get started on prostitutes...

people online date for a plethora of of different reasons, but i would attest that indeed, a lot of then just cant get dates in "real" life, then kids like me, smart enough, definitely not boring, and a just swell conversationalists just get left out in the cold, but then again, i am just super, super picky...

and then atleast online, it seems there are a fair amount of people in the same place for the same reason, they want a real relationship. whereas if you just skip down to the corner pub, you can shoot the shit, but for the most part, they're only good for a one night stand...

also, it seems that in this age of rapidly progressing technology, social skills seem to be on the slide, it's harder for people to just go up and be like, "well how do you do, i'm -" you know?

if someone did that to you, you'd probably be like.... umm, step off...
but that behaviour is acceptable online.

I suppose I resort to online dating because I am shy.. And I haven't met many guys that I am interested in.. And not many guys ask me out.. And I'm looking for the right guy.. I don't really meet guys face to face that often, because I don't really do much that often.

Well personally I have a really difficult time finding men I can connect with, so I imagine in the future when I'm older I'll date online (too young now).

My views on everything are pretty ecentric so it's just so tiring to deal with guys who just don't get me. It usually ends up where I just get used because my personality doesn't click with them. Plus I'm incredibly picky. I'd rather get to know a guy for once first instead of them just trying to get in my pants, to be perfectly honest. I'd like a guy to get to know ME before they see my face and body, because then I just become an object. :/

It's also very convenient, to join an online dating site. You can browse many profiles and pick & choose the ones you'd like to contact.

I met crims here on ttl, it was so nice to meet a man who understood my illness.

Online dating does work, I met my partner on love at lycos and we have been together now for 7 years, living together for 4. Ive never thought to ask why she put herself on the site, i put myself on simply because im not very sociable, i dont drink so dont go to nightclubs or pubs and thought that online you might get to know someone better when they can really be themselves

I think that women result to online dating because it's like shopping, you can scroll and find what exactly you are looking for. As opposed to taking chances in a real life scenerio where it takes time to meet someone and get close. I dispise online dating because I am an adventurous person, and I make the first move 7 out of 10 times. I like keeping things interesting and I think that it is sexest for men to be required to make the first move. Like you said, there is such thing as shy men and just because they are too nervous to approach you doesn't mean they should be ignored.

Thank you ladies. You've given me a lot of good information regarding the reasons women chose to date online instead of the old fashioned way.

Also, I should have said make men have to make the first move most of the time. If you're a man however, I think relying on the women to come to you is not a winning strategy by any means.

Regarding online dating, I think I would feel a lot better if I was actually capable of approaching a woman any time, anywhere instead of finding women online, but that's me.

with guys making the first move, i think you havce to remember that if you get shot down. it's not the end of the world. my and my friends were nearly crying with laughter the other day. i'll type the conversation i had with a really pretty girl at a coffee bar.

"hey, i'm phil"
"no" - walks away

this was to be followed by histerical laughing by both me and my friends who were watching from not that far away. But hey, win some lose some. either way try to enjoy it.

I think that most of modern times people are shy and have problems with relationship or making connections with other genre mean human
so nowadays internet is the only way for them to communicate and date I think so.

Hmmm this is really wierd, because I thought online dating was done mostly by MEN. I've been trying a couple online dating sites and havn't had a SHRED of good luck with either of them.

So, I did a little research! And I read some stories on the internet that stated most online dating populations are off-centered, weighted towards a male majority... which gives women the flexibility to cherry-pick at their own leisure. I wonder why, then, a lot of women seem to be saying they do online dating?

What's THAT all about?! =O

So confused.
