I'm probably one of the few who's still appreciating the internet experience up to now, even though there have been some who lied, some not over their ex-husband's, one who stood me up on a second date and then begged for a second opportunity (he got blocked), some with really lousy manners etc. I have learned a lot.

My experience of online dating has been for a couple of months and I have simply quit as it was getting tiring and taking up time with meeting up with folks simply to never see them again.

Beth- I feel your frustration here and expect that one can go past this and find a way of engaging with a wider array people. I am hoping I would not be considered a frumpy, cutesy,or low end woman as I have used online dating.

As For Me, I Have never seen anything good or a healthy relationship come out of internet dating. Yes, I've seen unions effect, but very, very awful ones. I'm not saying finding a healthy, mutally fulfilling relationship on the internet is impossible. But it's a bit like being the exception to the rule. It's a bit forced. It takes a great deal of the enjoyment out of dating. There is something to be said for meeting people whether it be friends or dates organically. Merely by being in areas you love, surrounded by people you love. I'm not entirely there. I however find myself in situations which aren't too great, and I believe, Why am I here with these people doing this? I can not bear it!" And I get out. Understand yourself.

Get happy with you. Should you wanna feel amazing and loved, seriously, look yourself straight in the mirror in the eyes, and say. I love and accept you just as you are. And..YOU ARE AMAZING."
I am constantly surprised by how frustrated, hurt and jaded folks feel after experiencing online dating. Its odd, because I've always viewed myself as quite a sensitive soul, with strong moral values, and so online dating looked like a harsh universe to voluntarily enter. Yet I've been dating online now for about 2 months and have been really enjoying it. I keep my expectations low, I consider anything I read online as pointless until I meet the man, and I do some serious reading between the lines". You must attempt to learn the language of online dating - looking for someone to hang out with" = not interested in serious relationship, I want someone fit and attractive" = I am shallow and I am probably about 80lb overweight, No profile picture = probably married.

The absolute key for me was that this time, I was not there to look for a relationship. I accepted from the start that my chances of finding someone dateable online were so skinny, they could be pretty much disregarded. Instead, I was there to do my homework. I comprehended that I sucked at talking to people I did not yet know, especially with the chance of it turning into a date. So I went online specifically to meet an entire bunch of folks and practice speaking to strangers.
