  • Mostly negative experiences if you are a woman. Only men tend to think of online dating as positive. Many guys you meet online are socially inept. Either they will send you dick pics right off the bat in hopes that you will reciprocate the favor or they will ghost you out of nowhere at the first sign that a relationship may be gaining traction. There are also the lurking psychos online who will snap at the slightest hint that you have lost interest in them. Some have been beyond difficult to shake off, and even when I directly state I want nothing more to do with a guy, he will continually try to win me over or will virtually stalk me all over social media (I don’t know if that is so I can see his level of commitment to me, or for me to realize that this guy should be committed to a mental facility). In my experience online dating is just setting yourself up for disappointment.

    • It's negative all around. It's bad for men because only the top 85% get the women and bad for women because of the men who get a thrill out of sending dick pics. Women get all the attention on dating sites, good or bad. As a guy you're lucky to get a match every month unless you look like a hot celebrity.

    • I didn't realize that, but I guess you’re right.

  • Not good at all. I have tried online dating sites and just from chatting with people until i find someone clicks. Both no good.
    Online dating site-80% of them I would say are looking for hookups and probably 19% are there because they are not good looking (like below 4 out of 10), or awkward in real life, or too shy. Only probably 1% who are good guys just looking for love genuinely (but unfortunately I never met those)
    Ok, people you meet in chat rooms are trying to turn that into a relationship...99% people on there are looking for nude pics to jerk off, only 1% that can carry a decent chat. I have came across 3 that I liked from probably 100s I have talked to. But none of those ended well. You hit off well, they message you daily, until they started to message between 2-3 days and the gaps gets longer and longer, till you loose feelings for each other.
    Advice-DON'T do it, most likely not gonna work. Try a coffee shop or a random stranger is better than online.

  • I actually haven't met someone on tinder yet.. But so far, its been negative for me. I've been ghosted in the middle of a conversation, and I've done that a few times myself.

    Respect goes out the door with online dating, and you really don't have a good idea of how that person is despite glimpsing a profile blurb and looking at pictures.

  • Just watch out for the bitches who will email guys but never actually meet up with them. They just want their egos stroked. Half of all responses are from females who just want to have fun online but will never meet up. Always ask em out right away for coffee. If they say want to exchange a few more emails, fuck em and search for others.

    • You ask for their email?

    • When I say "email" here, what I really mean to say is "electronically communicate" .. you don't need their email address for that.

  • I've never had a terrible first date or anything from it and most of the time, it's resulted in something kind of long term, whether it's friends, friends with benefits, or a f**k buddy. Most of them have also turned out to be total jerks. Never had a relationship from online dating though I almost dated a couple of the guys I've met. It depends what your intentions are and such, at least to me.

  • A mix of both. I had a guy taking me to a McDonald’s and eat 5 big Macs in half an hour and calling me babe after 5 minutes and asking what cup size I was. Then he had the guts to ask for a second date. I told him he should date his mother. I have had good experiences as well though. I met a wonderful guy two years ago and even though he isn’t my type, he was a real gentleman during the date. He is younger than me though and I’m attracted to older. So a mixed bag of experiences, really.

  • I’ve never dated online.
    I’ve heard a lot of my friends and some of their family members date online and it’s worked out for them. So I wouldn’t not date online. Just depends.

    • I said so-so but it could be better. My main problem is I'm not hot

    • Show All
    • Well I dont have self esteem issues but I probably could use some better pics. I'm not very photogenic like some people.

    • Everyone is photogenic if the photos are taken by a professional. Check out my site and see for yourself.

  • Pretty much Negative- nobody ever wants to talk - makes me wonder if they are still married cheating or spammers seeking to cause trouble. Or you take time to write even on paid sites an most seem to delete an never answer. Might be site owners just scamming people.

  • Although I’m with my current girlfriend for almost two years, that I met through online dating... I overall say my experience was so-so.

    Lots and LOTS of rejection (as in no reply, or an outright rejection)... but I finally struck gold.

    I *COMPLETELY* understand why some guys quit online dating. Not all have the persistent personality that I have to endure constant ghosting, rejection, and lack of replies that I did on OKCupid & Tinder.

  • A lot of time and messaging has gotten me laid only a few times. When it comes the time to swap pics, more often than not, thats the time I end communication. Some I see that pic and think "absolutely not"

    Also, I never send a dick pic unless its asked for. When they want a dic pic right away, usually its a guy posing as a female

  • So far my experience has been so-so to bad. Especially, if it is a long distant relationship. Things get complicated if the person lives on a different continent. I'm still open to dating online. I'm just not one to rush anymore. If it happens it happens. If it don't, it don't. Totally not going to worry about it. It will only take years off my life.

  • Negative. People lie all the time l, are never who they say they are and are never what they make themselves look like.

    I dont want a barbie doll or someone in an inch of powder or made of plastic, all I wanted was someone honest at the very least.
