Online dating should women ask men out thoughts on online dating

"I was constantly overthinking what I had typed in my profile or what I was sending in a message to a guy. Over time, I began to feel like I was losing my true self in the quest to be the girl with the perfect profile, and I decided it wasn't worth the stress and sacrifice of losing and/or hiding who I am.""I was sick of constant disappointment or men that wanted to text forever. But that's the thing -- you can't really be yourself online." "Online dating gave me exactly what I wanted: practice going on dates with strangers and trusting my instincts about the men I met.When I would see something in a guy's profile that he liked in a woman, I would think ‘Hey! What I did not like was that it felt extremely contrived, as if I was online shopping.

They are able to hide behind gadgets and feel that they can be completely disrespectful.

Also, when you tell men you aren't interested, they respond with, 'Whatever, bitch, you're ugly anyway.' to which I responded, 'I was ugly when you initially sent me a message, prick.'""You have to be a complete drop-dead gorgeous show-stopper to get anything out of it.

There was nothing romantic or spontaneous about it, and it required a lot more time and energy than I expected.

I recommend online dating for practice if you haven't dated in a while, but ultimately, I think the chances of meeting someone great are small and require a whole lot of effort.""I'm a Baby Boomer who never thought she’d be single at 60. I met one guy from California that I flew out to spend time with only to learn he was looking for a woman to support his lazy behind. Or they are sick and want a woman to be their nurse.

I never worried about that though, and am just happy that he has a stable job that he loves.
