At first I was like no , but then yes. I was always working , school and I didn't have time for friends , or even hanging out. I made this app "badoo" i would get tons of Messages but all of them seemed sexual and just trying to have a one night stand. But then this guy caught my eye. We talked and we hit it off real quick. After 3 months of texting we finally met. He asked me out and now we're one year together. ❤️😍 Never thought I'd find love lol. Always thought it was lame.
I picked no because overall I don't think people take online dating seriously. Fake profiles or lie about some info. I have met and been on a date with 2 people through online dating but neither worked out. The first one we never got passed the 1st date, the other we had 3 dates but with both I never felt like either woman was really interested in me right from the start. As a guy it's awful, girls get messaged all the time from guys so most of the time you never get a response from them.
I would never go to a dating website, I loath those places but if I just simply met someone at random online, I'd be open to it, really depends on the person I am dealing with and whether or not I felt I could trust them.
i dont seriously date online. i talk to girls on facebook primarily. its how i meet new people and take it from there. forced dating via an app always end up weird. i used to do it but for me it never really went well. I have a feeling it works better for older peopple who haven't been able to settle down
Well here goes. Girls are on there with a big check list, which very few guys meet. They have Zero communication skills, they are bombarded with hundreds of messages, their is no trust online, it rarely materializes into a date, a lot of girls are racist especially on POF in australia. So end of the day, it's a massive waste of time, at least for me. I've probably messaged like 20000 girls over 4 years and never had anything more than a few lame dates.
Online dating is pretty lame... Girls get a ton of attention without putting much effort. They are terrible at keeping up convos, they have these checklists (like wtf, seriously?). Most of the time I just read their profile and laugh my ass off because, most of them clearly live in their own fantasy worlds. " He has to be tall, dark, handsome, ambitious, like cats, studying or working, NO BLACK MEN, "... oh I almost forgot, can't forget those cheesy marilyn monroe lines. Fuck outta here with that shit loool
I would say no for me. I prefer meeting a person face to face and slowly getting to know each other that way instead of texting each other. Also, there's so many cases where people put fake information and profiles that I don't know if I could trust it or take it seriously.
On the other hand, it's a really good way to meet different people for people who don't have the time to date. You can skip all the formalities (?) you do on dates and really focus on your interests.
