Internet dating sites good or bad

Sometimes I’m excited for a date, and it goes really poorly.Other times, I’ve gone into the date thinking it was a waste of time and come away laughing at his jokes and excited to meet up again.

“I knew if she’d just give me a chance, we’d be fine,” he told me later.

“And, anyway, she was totally worth the wait.” My friends and I often get together to vent our frustrations with online dating.

I wasn’t interested in 90% of the guys who came my way, but I thought it’d be rude to ignore their messages. He asked why, and I pointed out that we had nothing in common. It’s an anonymous forum where some singles feel no shame about soliciting toe-sucking, anal, and other kinky behavior.

So, I started giving would-be suitors polite and brief answers before explaining that I wouldn’t be striding off into the sunset with them. He argued, flattered, and begged in a barrage of messages that barely paused for my responses. One single woman was on Ok Cupid when her online crush suggested cam sex.

I’ve heard so many stories about catfishing dates, no-shows, crazies, dull duds, blabbermouths, and a guy who pretty much only said “Right on” the entire night.

It’s kind of fun to hear these stories and try to top their bad dates with one of my own.

Their first date took place on New Year’s Eve, and they shared their first kiss as they rang in the new year. I think we were there for over six hours, talking the whole time, and at the end of the date he swooped in for a kiss.

The Californians maintained a long-distance relationship for the next year until Peter moved to Los Angeles in 2011. A theme park of conversation starters and tight security. While the dinner-and-movie dates blur together, the date who rode a rollercoaster with me is forever imprinted on my mind.

She made him wait through a month of messaging, rescheduled their date three times, and went into it with an openly cynical attitude. He treated her to coffee, which turned into getting ice cream, which led to grabbing dinner.

She now can’t believe she was so resistant to meeting the Ricky to her Lucy.

Whether those people found their confidence or their soul mate, such personal stories give singles everywhere renewed hope. We’ve collected some of our favorite online dating stories from around the web and in real life to bolster the spirits of daters feeling discouraged by ghosting, dick pics, and bad dates.
