Internet dating time wasters

opinion

Im just a bit disappointed at my weekend dip of my toe back into online dating. I got a message from a guy online, he messaged me because he liked my profile, HE gave me his mobile no, HE asked me to call him, I did and we had a nice light hearted chat, HE suggested coffee today and then said HE would call me last night.

So all Internet dating time wasters initiating. So he was to call me backat 9pm to arrange a place for the coffee today. Again HIS idea and I never heard back, nothing. I just Internet dating time wasters understand what goes on Internet dating time wasters the brain of these guys. Honestly if I had a dollar for every time something like this happened I would be loaded. Its like brain damage. Why say stuff if you have no intention.

Want to avoid the disappointments...

Thankfully I dont get bothered by this Internet dating time wasters stuff anymore and I certainly will not be investing in any dude I dont know but seriously its such a waste of both our time. Can anyone shed any light on this interesting phenomenon of the guys with no intentions LOL. You do definitely get some bizarre behavior.

I remember chatting to a guy on POF last year. Right in the middle of us Internet dating time wasters this, he just stopped responding. We had agreed on the day 2 days from thenwe agreed a time and then were sorting venue, and nothing. Internet dating time wasters logged back on later in the evening, he was online, but still no further response.

Honestly I had stuff like this so many times. I been on and off the online dating for a few years and its just such a lot of nonsense. What gets me is its always their idea and them initiating contact so why even bother. And they speak to you about the women not being serious too. And then pull this crap.

Women responding with one word, or Internet dating time wasters wanting to meet after a 5 minute conversation, women sending provocative messages, women sending insulting messages, women never wanting to meet or waiting months before Internet dating time wasters. These are just a few.

Many guys have told me they are turned off with the online dating because there are a lot of scam artists on there as well, women with fake profiles.

Many times I have been in a conversation with someone and all of a sudden I realize I am Internet dating time wasters that interested in the guy anymore. Feelings change and sometimes you meet someone else with whom you just had a better spark with. Oh yes L I agree that some girls pull the funny stuff too absolutely. But I can hand on heart say If I have no intentions of going on a date with someone i am in no way going to lead him on and certainly wouldnt be hanging around a dating Internet dating time wasters if i wasnt intending on going on a date.

Im just trying to understand what they are getting out of it? I would never insult anyone or be rude or disrespectful. If I dont fancy a guy that messages me I just dont reply to them and thats easier.

It seems like such a waste of time and effort you know to message, initiate the converstions, have a conversation and make plans to meet but without the intention to do so. I guess its just for their ego but come on they must know themselves on some level how pointless all this stuff is.

I Internet dating time wasters the point is like I Internet dating time wasters sometimes I am talking to someone but just sort of lose interest and instead of coming straight out and telling him I pretty much just fade out.

I met a guy online. He was very good looking, intelligent, divorced, no kids. We were talking online messaging for about a week. He gave me his number and said lets talk on the phone. The only thing I did not really take into consideration was the distance. He was 2 hours away from me.

We meet someone new and...

Then I felt bad and I was like should I call him but for what? The guy lives 2 hours away is this really going to turn into something? I am not looking for a long distance relationship. SO my point is that sometimes we go in with one mindset then something clicks and we change our minds. However, there are success stories. I have met many nice guys online. Do not stereo type every guy because of one bad nut. I know you are right L.

Its just this has happened or variations of this has happened so Internet dating time wasters times to me. Im fed up with it. I guess I just need to keep on hoping there will be a normal guy out there but it Internet dating time wasters does make you question everything and I dont want to be like that I just want to relax and have fun with Internet dating time wasters all.

I had some weird experiences last week on OKC but had an outstanding date with a terrific gentleman and have weeded it down Internet dating time wasters 6 now who seem genuine. I spent a lot of time determining my criteria.

As you get older you realize what is really important. Who knows and who cares why they do what they do. I think men and women online are generally talking to quite a few people. Gina I know its been so many instances like that and thats why I came off it before and ladies thankyou Im very glad to hear that Im not alone with these issues then.

I definitely dont take it personally and Im happy to keep on keeping on for now. Its just hard when u have kids and dont get out too much and online is your only viable option to date and then you see all these guys on Internet dating time wasters dating website yet u never seem to quite make it to the date part lol. It is frustrating but it can work with patience and a Internet dating time wasters skin! Surely it is easier but is it nice? If a guy normally does not fade, but then someone fades on him, he is likely to do it to the next woman.

Anyone who's been to the...

Internet dating time wasters Yup Maria i agree its a cowardly and lame thing to do. I would never fade on a guy ever. If im not interested I like it to be a clean break and final as men dont always take the hint. I very much beleive that what u put out you get back so I want to keep my karma clean lol.

Thats why this kind of nonsense baffles me I just dont understand the mindset of the guys that initiate then back out. Its crazy Internet dating time wasters me. Gina Im pretty certain that men do it more.

All my pals are very honest with guys we all would never fade. I wouldnt dream of running after a dude especially a guy I never met and never will it seems lol. And you are right my Mr Right would be man enough to make plans and follow them through and let me know if he does lose interest as he will be honest and have integrity.
