When online dating isnt working
When my father heard I was online dating he was deeply sceptical.
I’ve had women write me nasty emails, insult me over the phone, ignore my phone calls, stand me up, refuse to thank me for dinner, refuse to reciprocate in bed… And yet I still run around as this super dating advocate, because I believe it is the best prospect to find someone special.If you choose to wait for lightning to strike until you go on another date with the “right” guy, you might be waiting a long, long time. Listen, you might think I’m nuts to keep on preaching positivity. All I know is that it’s freakin’ HARD to meet someone.We have our small lives: our circle of married friends, our work buddies, a few single people, and that’s it.Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing. Maybe the dating sites you're going to are not known for their clientele.
i'm a good looking guy, know what i want out of life, just having a little trouble with this.
I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.
I did meet my girlfriend online, but after a year of painful struggle, meaning hardly any dates despite being educated, employed, and reasonably attractive.
And if it hasn’t happened to you yet, you can say “What’s wrong with these terrible people on these awful sites?
” Or you can ask, “How can I make this work for me, despite the obvious flaws? But I’ll tell you, all it takes is one person – and you’ll be standing right with me.
Has my dad’s attitude changed- of course not- in fact i doubt he even recognises a connection.
