I congratulate all those that have met people and had a good time. I am one of those poor souls that have been unlucky for a number of years now and am hoping that this site works well for me. British men are just not as accepting.
I agree with the others. If your just looking for a good time(s*x) then maybe you should advertise in the free chat rooms. When I start talking to a guy and he starts talking about s*x in the first 5 minutes he is gone. I'm not here looking for s*x or one night incounters, you can go to any bar and find that. From what I have been reading just about 95% of the other women or even more are here to meet someone that they can be friends with and share life with.
I have also met some nice guys on this site...you just have to take the time and talk to them before you meet them...even then though its all about chemistry and if its not there then you still make a friend....
I beg to differ, but I think you are either not reading all the threads on this forum, or you have simply missed the numourous posts that have stated how many people have actually "met" from this site.
I am one of those people. I have met several guys from this site and have had a wonderful time making new friends. I enjoy meeting new people. Naturally, I have to feel "safe" before agreeing to meet. Thats basically common sense though.
If your really THAT skeptical, get out there and MEET someone. *smile* It really isn't that hard.
Probubly the biggest mistake that many make on here, is meeting with "expectations" of one kind or another. It's best to just meet with "makeing a new friend" in mind. That way, how can you lose? Unless your meeting some psycho-nut or something. *smile*
I also agree with April...
If all your looking for is a "piece of meat", your success rate isn't going to be very high. You might want to re-think your motive for being here in the first place.
JIGGL - - you go for it girl! I'm so happy for you - - I feel like I hit the lotto or something!! LMAO
Don't think a minute about only knowing him for a month - - you probably know him better than some people know each other after "dating" six months. And although I am divorcing - - I was with my ex for 17 years - - and we only knew each other for two weeks before we spent every friggin night together for nearly two decades.
I will say I am a bit envious! I was just searching locally, but a coworker told me to "broaden my horizons" and I connected with a great guy who is far away from me - - but hey, guess whose moving to FL soon? Coincidence? He'll get not argument from me!
On Good Friday, I had a face to face with a man that I chatted with on this site. We hit it off extremely well over the 'net and on the phone. We got along so well, that I was afraid that when we met in person, there might not be any chemistry, and that we would only be friends. When we finally met, my fears were laid to rest because we were instantly attracted to one another.
Because he was "just passing" through to visit his family in Michigan, our date only lasted 7 hours. I invited him to come by and have Easter dinner on his way back to Kentucky. He came for dinner and met my family and they all loved him. My 17-year old son even gave me a pat on the back for finally hooking up with someone that he thought was good enough for me. LOL!!
So since then, I have been in a state of sheer "Twitterpation" and cannot stop thinking about him. After work on Friday, he drove from Kentucky to pick me up here in Ohio and took me to his home where I was treated like a queen all weekend long. This Friday, I will be traveling to his home where we will celebrate my birthday and just "chill".
It has not been quite a month since we first met on line, but I feel as if I have known him all of my life. It is true that things are going fast, but what's the difference if it all leads to a lasting love?
I have met more than a few men from this site and had wonderful times. I'm not at all disappointed in who've I've chosen to meet face to face. I do take my time and talk by phone before agreeing to meet to be on the safe side. You can never be to careful.
Since I am not ready for a 'commited' relationship... I would say that thus far, my experience has been a positive one.
