've had some success with online dating... meaning that I went on dates with people and I even seriously dated one girl for about three months. What 've had more success with is, um, online sex-partnering?. I've met girls (and guys ahem) on the internet with whom I had a purely sexual relationship (obligatory friendship, of course) with and never had any problems. That kinda sucks, though, that I have had more success getting laid using the internet than I have in finding a partner. (the folks I had this amount of success with would not have worked out dating-wise by the way... most were theists and had little in common with me other than wanting to have a great time) :/

I hate online dating. It feels too much like a job interview and I have found that there are many guys that are not exactly truthful about themselves. Still, its difficult to find someone. Maybe we are all just too busy, at least in LA.

I had a somewhat positive experience with on-line dating a few years ago. I say "somewhat" because we didn't wind up staying together, although that had more to do with where we were in our lives at the time.

Anyway, we met on the Scientific American singles site, so we already had that in common. We emailed for a few weeks and then started talking on the phone. There was an instant spark so, at some point, I decided to take a trip to NYC (I lived in Houston and she lived in Manhattan) so we could meet in person.

Well, we hit it off immediately and had a pretty nice long distance relationship for 6 or 8 months. I traveled there about every 2-3 weeks during that time and I think if I hadn't been recently divorced and going through some things with my (now grown) kids, things may have worked out better.

She was actually a lot better match for me than most everyone I've met in person before or since.

Shit. You're probably right. Hm. All you can do is... Wait. But... I guess you could initiate?

Have you tried speed dating? It seems much more... efficient. Its only grilling for 5 - 10 minutes. Personally, I like the interview process of first dates. You get find out the deal breakers early. I'd hate to find out you're a convicted felon after I've become emotionally attached to you. Now the break up has to be painful! Ugh!

Yeah Jacqueline, that's the thought I cringe at: The 9 out of 10 rejections. No one likes being the rejected and I really, really don't want to be the one doing the rejecting. And while some things like Atheist/non-religious seem non-negotiable, I can see myself saying, "Oh I could never date someone who does X for a living..." then wind up falling madly for the person who does X. ;-)

I know what you mean sigrid. I'm pretty leery about the whole online dating thing myself. A group like this is a little different for me since I'm on A/N for other primary reasons ... the singles group is a side thing. But I don't see myself getting on an actual dating site anytime soon.
Comment by sigrid on October 13, 2009 at 8:38am
I have always found online dating to be incredibly superficial, have read about it at different blogs I found as a rule by rapidshare search engine or heard the experience of my friends. but I have rarely actually got to know someone online -by know someone, I mean know if I can trust them or not, know if I would like to spend several hours in their company, even just have a relatively clear idea about the facts of their life (age, profession, marital status). And then, the whole first date thing - you've been flirting with this person for two weeks, and you finally meet in a bar, and you realise that physically there is nothing there... It's a very awkward situation. still, if you never try you'll never know;)

Movies, museums, zoo, anything nature-y. Still don't know if I'm doing the long trip or the short one, but if it's the long version, I'd have time for a movie with a fellow atheist. ;-)
