How many dating sites do you have profiles on? I am on three. This one I participate most on. I am getting ready to drop one of them because I haven't had much luck with it. By far LF is the one that I have had the most luck on and the most fun on.
I got an email the other day that said in 1 in 8 marriages the couples had met online. I just looked through the success stories on this site and there are quite a few. I was completely against online dating for years and thought it was dangerous and you wouldn't be able to find a normal guy that wasn't in it to be deceptive. Last December I was bored and lonely and started looking at dating sites and ran into this one. I have to eat all my words from back then. lol I have met some great guys. I have run across some odd ones here and there but the normal guys far outweigh the weirdos. So far, I don't have a success story that I can post but I have made some great friends along the way. And more importantly learned about myself also. So how about everyone else, did you immediately embrace online dating or were you negative like me at the start?
How do you develop self-esteem and self-confidence? I do not have much of either. I have noticed as I have gotten older I have more self-confidence with my work capabilities or just generally my place in this world. But what I am lacking is that inner voice that tells me that I am worth something and that I am ok. I would also like confidence is how I look or at least be comfortable with my looks. Does anyone know how to gain more self-confidence or self-esteem? Am I the only one that deals with this?
I know this is nothing new to anyone but I have just had my heartbroke...bad. The first time from an online relationship and actually the first time in years. I forgot how bad it hurts. Any words of wisdom on how to move on? I know time will heal the wound but I really thought this guy might be the one.
I've just noticed that I can't view comments on people's profiles anymore. The membership page comes up so I guess that is only obtainable by members now. The comments posted by others was really beneficial in looking at profiles so I am sorry to see that it isn't a free function anymore. I guess I need to stop being cheap and join again. lol
