What are your experiences of dating people you've met online?

Did it go well?
I'm going on a couple of dates soon.
I'm going out for a drink with a gorgeous future doctor next week which should be nice. The date I'm really looking forward to though is with this guy I really like, we'll be great friends whatever happens but I really want it to be more because we just get on so well. I'm more apprehensive about that one though because obviously I like him so much that I've put a lot of pressure on the date to go well.

  • I've generally had great experiences dating people online but I talk to them a LOT before we meet so I have a very good idea of where they're cumming (sic) from. The gorgeous future doctor sounds like it could be interesting. What are you expecting to happen?

    • Yeah it does. He said he'd let me drive his car too (I want to learn how to drive haha)! He honestly seems lovely but the other guy is who I'm really looking forward to meeting. The other guy seems boyfriend material.

    • He was so rude lol

What Guys Said 31

  • Hm, interesting. I've only done it once. All the right connections were there online, full of laughs. She wasn't exactly like me, but enough common interest for a relationship to bloom. Sadly, once we met in person, you see a lot more of EVERYTHING. Like how they treat others, walk, mannerisms, stuff like that.

    Basically it was a bit like getting to know her again kinda lol. It went ok, but I left, no longer wanting to pursue her. She treated server at our restaurant a bit cruel. She dug in her ear which annoyed me cause I once saw a bit o wax mate lol. Hope it goes well, the one where you're looking forward to sounds romantic like. Hopefully the attraction comes with his great similarity and personality that you like :)

    • Sorry yours didn't go so well :/
      Thank you though :) I can't wait!

    • Haha yeah, it was a drag. thanks tho. And I can tell, either way you walk away with a potential soulmate or one crazy story and a new set of driving skills lol.

    • Haha true!

  • Good, just as long as the distance is closed quickly. For me, it was one of the best relationships I've ever been in. I met an amazing girl online but, unfortunately, she later broke up with me because the distance was too hard for her. As long as you can quickly close the distance, it can be worth it.
    I'm also talking to another girl I met online. This time, I've decided not to get into a relationship with them until I meet them in person, but I still would like to build our friendship in the meantime until we get to meet.

  • They stole some of my organs and sold it to the black market the one girl sold my kidney by slipping a pill in my drink knocking me out and she made an incision on my belly and pulled my kidney out and I had to get a bus ride back to my town.

    • Why wouldn't you want to have a relationship with someone you met online?

    • that just wasn't something either of us were interested in, i guess. I wouldn't oppose if it was the right time, but it wasn't.

  • I've actually never dated online, I mean I've been in long distance relationships that I've had to use online stuff with, but I knew those ladies in person for many years. Never been one for the whole dating website stuff though.

  • First that you met online , or bump into each other at walmart or were setup by someone else in a blind date. The part where you meet is the same as it always was. Dating in person.

    Meeting online and discovering its long distance and choosing to meet , my experience , maybe others can corroborate , is the moment you make plans to meet , you are yearning for each other and its 2-3 days or more that is like a honeymoon or a disaster , if its a disaster, well yikes, if its like a honeymoon , its becomes more or less sexual and all is beautiful and rarely can it be sustain, unless someone moves and as we get older we don't want to uproot ourselves so more or less it dies out.

  • Well It's always better to meet people personally, if you're in college that wouldn't be tough, avoid online dating... it should be like the last resort...

  • I've done online dating before I'll say this. Usually it doesn't work because that person has just been through a break up or has some type of understanding lying issue her won't tell you. And most of the time they are just looking for a rebound.

  • Online dating is terrible for men, pules American dating is terrible period so online dating in America is a nightmare. Women who date online are all too often looking for something that either doesn't exist or is way out of their league. No matter how unattractive the girl is, she still thinks she is entitled to date model status man. She hold out for some guy who has the perfect script written for every word he says, a fantasy. Like moat American women they dont feel they should have to put effort into anything, so the man end up writting 10-100 letters and getting 1-10 responces, that simply run dry once the over entitle fatty get bored. There is nothing to work for, no reward, and little chance of success. Online dating is shit, and it will soon see a push back just like American women in general are being boycotted because they are simply worthess.

    • What a load of bull, you're a very bitter man. Trust me you won't find love unless you lighten up and drop this hatred towards women which is obviously you projecting your own self hatred. This attitude isn't healthy to you or anybody else, I hope you realise that there are great people, out there and you can't just generalise a whole gender.

  • Rule no. 1: never date any person you've met online...

    Rule no. 2: never date a guy with short cut hairs

    Rule no. 3: wait at least one lunar month until you'll sleep with him. And you're relationship will last much longer

    Rule no. 4: stay present

    Rule no. 5: smile. Always. Than nothing can go wrong...

    Enjoy!

  • i just had my heart broken by someone i met online, but he was the nicest guy I've ever dated. we dated for 3 months. when we first met, i let him pick me up. no friends were around. just us 2. i fell in love with him quickly. im heartbroken not bc i fell in love with a guy i met online, im heartbroken bc it may not have been meant to be. its safe. just please guard ur heart and let the guy show more emotion than u. still play a little bit hard to get/hard to reach on occasion.

    • I'm sorry it ended that way for you :/ I hope you will find someone soon who deserves you :)

    • Thank you girl😊 yeah I'm getting over it real quick with the help of God. Once we realize we deserve only the best, then we act as such. We don't take crap from these boys. We're made to be Queens. If a guy can't treat you like a queen, then he ain't worth your energy, time or tears.

    • TRUE THAT

  • I wish you well! I met my guy on OKCupid. In two days, it'll be our one year anniversary, so yeah I think it went pretty well. :D I couldn't be any happier than I am with him. Good luck with your dates! One crucial thing I would point out is you have to be willing to compromise. Early on when they don't really owe you any commitment, they may be busy with shit in their lives. But once they see how great you are, they'll make plenty of time (and so should you!).

    • Aw thank you! Great advice :D I wish your relationship well to! :)

  • I have actually never dated offline before, as soon as I turned 18, I used dating sites. I've met people online that I will be friends with for life and some assholes.
    With my experience, most only wanted sex and but, there were 4 that actually asked me on dates. Two of them asked me out, then dropped contact before a time and place even set in stone. As for the other two they actually planned dates with me, one stood me up and cut off contact and the other stood me up three times and cut off contact.
    So, not great. It's been 3 years and I am still single.

  • It always seems to go well at first, but I dropped my entire life to move to a new state and be with someone I met online, I am expecting in December and regret what I did, aside from the baby, I am so excited to be a mom. I really wish I wouldn't have ventured to the internet to find "love". Everyone has a different experience though and mine hasn't been the greatest.

    Best of luck to you.

  • A guy I met online was One of the best boyfriends I ever had. He was exciting, sexy and always knew how to show me a good time! We actually dated for a few days and decided to have a serious relationship. It lasted for a year unfortunately he was a great player too haha. Not great enough since I investigated and found it so easily.
    Amazing hot sex! Cute dates, intense passion, pure fun only to be shitted on your face in the end and taken away so brutally! What a shitty as ex boyfriend lol.
