Online dating is embarrassing and risky, I've always thought it's shameful and strongly implies you can't get a date offline.

A date online on Tinder? That sounds pathetic. Originally Posted by ThisTown Agreed too, that the organic way of doing it is preferred, whereas online dating it's forced, lazy, and contrived. My experience, most women just flake or disappear, assuming you can even get them to reply to your first email. Unfortunately, I live in a smaller area where most people my age bracket are married or have live-in boyfriends or my parents' ages.
So I have to rely on newcomers to the area that trickle from time to time, most moving here to be near their elderly parents or just for a change of pace. I've resorted to contacting women via some of the local community Facebook groups and such.
In my opinion, you have to have very thick skin to online date. I do believe most people want to meet someone and build a future with a significant other. I had some success stories with online dating Match but none of the relationships ever panned out in the long term. This doesn't have anything to do with the women I dated for a while. At the end of the day, it didn't work out for various reasons that was neither just mine or their fault.
From my personal experiences, I tend to avoid it for these reasons: 1 Its a very shallow way of meeting people. Its really just truly window shopping. If someone's pics look great, then you'll read their bio to see if you might want to get to know them. Its different in the real world where you can see if you have actual chemistry. On a few occasions, I had women walk into meet me and then turn around and not even get a drink to get to know me.
I wasn't aware I was some hideous creature as I've had my very fair share of beautiful women but this stings and left a very negative impression of meeting women online. If I were in my 20's or early 30's I think I could be more successful with online dating.
Being in my early 40's, most women who contact me are around my age and have never been married and have no kids. This is a huge red flag usually. These women are so set in their ways its not even funny. Also, women tend to get pickier as they age, not less picky. I prefer dating women in their late 20's or early 30's just because they're not a complete mess mentally yet. The women my age love to work out, complain about why they're single and that they never met anyone worthy of them, etc.
They're really just set in their ways and don't want to even bother with a man. I think they date just to tell their mother and friends they're out there trying when they really aren't. And this goes for women too. Some women just want to get out and get laid. Online dating provides a never ending way of getting free meals and drinks and sex. Lots of women are sleeping with countless men. They say they want something serious but their actions don't reflect it.
The Internet is full of people with baggage. I've had most of my success just getting out of the house. I'm not into the bar scene anymore but I do love wine bars, breweries, happy hours, etc. You can strike up conversations in these venues. You can also attend events, join Meetup groups, etc.
It beats sitting in your drawers taking a way out that seems easy when its really more difficult than actually just getting out. You do realize that someone can stay inside his house and still manage to interact romantically or sexually with the opposite sex, right?
Step 1. Turn tinder on. Step 2. Get matched with someone you find to be attractive. Step 3. Flirt with them, or wait for them to flirt with you first. Step 4. The two of them become interested in some fun times.

Originally Posted by geminigirl7. I've nothing against OLD or those who wish to use it. Personally, I don't embarrass easily but I'd embarrass myself if I thought I had to resort to OLD to find a partner. The old fashioned way has worked for me just fine even if the first marriage turned out to be a mistake on both our parts.
But then again and speaking of OLD, I am! For the last few weeks I've been looking at profiles of men on POF and I've seen a few men that look interesting so this evening I worked up the nerve to create my own profile but for some reason I can't seem to bring myself to complete it. I'm especially nervous about putting a picture of myself out there for the world to see. I keep thinking that someone I know is going to come across it and think I'm desperate and pathetic for looking for dates on the internet.
I feel embarrassed by the whole thing really. I know logically a lot of people date this way now and it's pretty normal but part of me feels like a loser for not being able to meet someone the old-fashioned way. It's hard though, I'm a busy single mom and I don't have a lot of time to go out.
I'm also worried that I'm not going to get very many replies or that once they see me in person they will be disappointed. If you meet someone at a bar or a grocery store you know up front what the other person really looks like. I'm not bad looking but we all look different in person. Anyone else feel this way about online dating and did you go through with it anyway? Did anyone you know ever see your profile somewhere and call you out on it?
Did you care? Did most dates go pleasantly enough? Help I'm new to dating!! Originally Posted by Curmudgeon. Originally Posted by mishigas I find it sad that this attitude is still around about OLD.
That, in essence, it's something that people need to " resort to " if they can't hack finding a partner in a " traditional way". It's just another tool to meet people that one might not encounter in their daily life. What's embarrassing about spreading a net as wide as possible when it comes to meeting people? Originally Posted by oh-eve. I only hear that from older people.
It is and has become a normality around younger folks. Even in huge cities with tons of people you could potentially meet naturally, OLD is popular. If you meet a group of people, chances are at least one of them used OLD.
Nothing to be ashamed of anymore. It doesn't mean your are a loser or ugly. I wasn't embarrassed when I did OLD, but people did always have a comment to make when I told them I met someone online, that was until they got divorced and realized how difficult it was to just meet people like it was when they were 19 and 20 years old. The world has changed, and as we get older for many of us, dating has changed. So going to the singles dances or bumping into someone in the mall and asking for their number doesn't really happen that much anymore.
So don't be embarrassed about it, literally tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions of people around the world are using it, and finding relationships, and marriages.

Sorry, but you should probably feel bad about the dick pics. It seems to cheapen the relationship. They immediately seize up into a state of guilt, shame, and PTSD.
