I decided to start dating again a few months after my breakup hoping I'd meet someone better than my ex. So the 1st guy I met at a social event.. we dated for 7 weeks & he confessed he was still dating & sleeping w/other girls the whole time. When I said I wasn't comfortable w/that & wanted to be exclusive he got mad and said he didn't like me enough to make me his gf & demanded I accept an "open relationship". So yea.. I got the hell outta there
The 2nd guy (old acquaintance) just talked about himself the whole time on the first date & insisted we go to a wine bar/brewery even when I said i don't like drinking. He also wanted me to drive 30 mi to his hometown instead of meeting me halfway somewhere
The 3rd guy I met on OkC.. he seemed super nice but he lied about his age by like a decade! He used old pics on his profile but in reality he was kinda middle-aged and balding -_-.. it was a nightmare. It's weird I usually never have problems w/ppl I meet on OkC
Sorry for the rant, I'm just not sure if I'm doing something wrong to attract these kind of guys (they all happened one after another)? I think I'm a nice person who just wants to find a decent, honest, monogamous guy. I'm SO discouraged with dating right now & just wanna give up..

Well one thing I've gathered in the dating world is that there are a large number of liars and fakers in the world. Dating just lets you find out this a lot. People say that online dating is worse than real world dating. I disagree. Its really the same thing, personally I think that the biggest difference with online dating and in person dating is that sometimes it takes a while to cut through the lies and bs that people throw out. People can and do create personas that they play on line. But I've met people who do the same thing in real life.
I've had a bad string of relationships over the last 7 years. Its been an interesting experience. I dont think its you that is causing this, but it could be how you approach, or just bad luck. Id like a sweet honest lady who wants a real relationship, so far over the last few years its one degree or another of lies or fake stories. If it were me I would maybe spend sometime being single and get comfortable with your own company. The issue in doing this is that you have to get comfortable with you, but not so set in being alone that you have issues with going out with people.
As for OKC I can say that the site has lead me to a lot of dating shenanigans and just sheer WTFuckery that I gave up and have gone back to being a hermit and hanging out with friends and my Xbox.
Dont be discouraged, if anything its a good learning experience, and it gives you something to laugh at later. Its what keeps me sane.0
