Default OMG! Dating Websites.

So I manage to join 2 dating websites over the last week. I'm feeling lonely and wanted to chat. Some of the guys have been gentlemen like and I appreciate that. I seem to have met a few nice guys. Some of the other guys are alittle too much.

I have one guy who basically told me "I'm the one and he's waiting for me'. This is way to intense for me. Nice looking guy in all and seems genuine. But my Gawd!

Another guy, wants to come to my place. NOW? That's fast. NO WAY! Very sexual guy. I mean seriously. I don't even know you.... your basically a stranger. He doesn't even know me.

Then I have another guy who wanted me to go to his hotel room!!! Are you friggin crazy??? IDK you. He practically begged me. I'm a single woman alone. You want me to drive half an hour to see you and go to your hotel room to watch movies???

I have mention I've only been on this site 5 days.

Then there was a guy who sent me a picture of his dick!

I have another guy who just wants to talk sex all night. I had a little fun with him in the beginning, but I don't want to be like that all the time. BORING.

He wants me to Skype and I can just imagine what he wants to see. I cut it off short with him tonight. I don't think he got it.

I mean seriously. There are some good guys on there. But I just meet you over the internet in the morning and you want to come over later today? WTF?

It's dangerous for a woman to do that.

I think this is more of a sex site or something. I don't like what some of these guys are asking.

What happen to dating and getting to know someone. I'm being turned off by some of these men. Not all but some.

Infact part of me wishes I would've joined sooner but I am shocked by some of the behaviour.

What happen to dating? Taking your time to get to know someone? Maybe I'm old fashion.

One guy wanted me to send him a picture of my 'tits'. yeah, you heard me and no I did not send him a picture.

Seriously!!! never thought it would be like this on a dating site. IDK

I suppose I'm shocked. Some guys are decent but others are over the top for me.

I have a friend who is on a bunch of dating sites and has had similar issues with the people there. She's been sent more unsolicited pictures of units than I think she ever thought possible. I don't know which sites you've joined, but I think you might unfortunately have the best luck avoiding creeps on a site like eharmony or match.com. Okaycupid seems like it's not too bad either, I've been messaged by some shady guys, but haven't been sent any photos. Though I can't guarantee anything.

Thanks. I'm shocked by some of the behaviour, I mean I'm 44 years old. I'm not flashing my tits to you via Skype or taking a picture. I'm not driving to meet you at a motel room and no you can't come over, I just met you today. I don't know if that's your real picture, your real name or your real age.

Wow!

I have one site that is pretty good like you said the other one is over the top. I just can't believe it's okay to talk or treat a woman that way. I don't think it's okay. I wonder if they actually get women this way. Just really surprised.

Those type of guys want a porn chic. Hell, I doubt a porn chic would want that type of guy, after all they are getting paid. Sorry you are encountering such lewd behavior. I am ashamed of my gender, I hope you encounter more nice guys than these porn guys.

I've had mixed experiences too. Some seem really sweet others not so much. A few swingers! Strange world out there.

Heh. I got a good chuckle reading your post, TooMuch.

I feel like dating sites are there for comic relief. I joined one a while back and half the gals couldn't even utilize correct spelling and grammar. Even if you're being sincere and giving them a compliment, they think you're up to something. So much of that essential emotional context is lost when trying to impress over the internet.

Well, it has been an experience! A learning experience. I actually have about 4 guys that are really decent to talk to. Very sweet, likeable and gentlemen like. I think there worthwhile. It has been a shock to the system. Wow! But there is such an undertone of sex in there. So not all guys are bad but there is quite a spectrum. From OMFG! to nice guy. So there are 4 guys I like talking with a lot. I'm being bombarded by requests from men it's been overwhelming for me. I don't know if I want to take on anymore. I like the 4 I have now.

What an experience. I'm stepping back alittle yesterday and today and thinking more about my boundaries because some of these guys don't have any, I think. LOL! But wow.

It's interesting because I have 3 pics up now and the pictures aren't OVER THE TOP or highly sexual, raunchy or anything. Just me in a dress. One full length.

The sex talk. Omfg.

Anyway, I'm learning.

That's funny! If they can't spell and their grammar???? Omg.

I don't mind giving and receiving compliments to some of the guys. I'm cool with that.

Wow!

Are you still on the dating website? How is it going? Have you met anyone? or are you still laughing. I'm glad you have a sense of humour about it.
