I haven't yet.¿ Most want to flirt and when I suggest they call me or chat, nothing happens.¿ Not sure online dating is for me.¿

PS.¿ I'm in my 50's and have found that men on this site (at least in my case) are mostly talk.¿ Haven't been in the dating scene for many years but I feel like I did in high school.¿ They haven't changed much.¿ Just got older.

well this site was recommended to me and so far i cant figure it out. there seems to be men here but they are looking for something other then BBW. I was hoping to find the one honest man here, where as i could not find him elsewhere. there seems to be alot of wonderful woman here. If men only knew what was hiding here.

I haven't met anyone yet, although there is someone that I would like to meet but I will probably never get the chance sine I don't have the money for the stinking membership. Yep I'm broke! Bills, Bills, Bills. I think I have a relationship with my bills its life committed! UGHHH!

I am new to this site, can't quite figure out how to meet people who are interested in really getting to know me. I hope this turns into a fun and eventful place to be.

I have met a lovely man from another BBW site who is willing to look past the skin to the real me. Most have wanted to ...um....but have used my intuition wisely and have met some great people.

Thanks! I called the First one...he blew me off by telling me: "I'm not okay with dating right now. My kids are going to have a problem with it."

OOOOO-kay..fine.


Second guy, JUST FINISHED A PRISON SENTENCE 8 years ago! So that's number 3! Meaning: 3rd person I met who told me AFTER we met he did time. Sigh...I feel like I have the word: SAVIOR on my forehead!

But like I mentioned before, just a part of the dating process.

I just wish these guys LEARN HOW TO READ! When a person mentions key words like: "Family Man" or "Manogomous" or "Not interested in just casual Nookie", it usually means don't bother if you're in it for "fun and games".

So we part ways after an hour. About 20 minutes later he calls me on my cell phone and says: "It was nice to finally meet you and you seem very nice", maybe we can keep in touch."

WELL HIT ME WITH A BRICK! WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS EH?

Because the second guy called you, it seems that he was interested, but just shy. I would think that he would not call at all if he were not interested. In my experiences, when a man was not interested or when he was disappointed in what I looked like, my calls were either avoided and I never got return calls when I left voice mail messages. If you like him, then perhaps you should take him up on his offer and call him. If you get his voice mail, then leave a message and if he does not call back, then don't call him again. Then you will know for a fact that he is not interested.

While you may find the second guy attractive, it seems that he has too much on his plate right now to offer you a stable, "non-dramatic" relationship. Besides the emotional distress that may come upon him while dealing with the legalities with his ex, he also has let you know that he has financial problems. When a man talks about being broke, that usually means that he may be looking for a woman who is willing to help him out financially. Or that he is letting you know that you should not expect him to pay every time that you and he go out.

Regardless of anyone else's intentions, it is always best to go with what your gut tells you. If your gut tells you not to pursue either of them, then by all means follow that feeling.

Good luck to you.

bbandit,
Congratulations and good luck with your online encounter!

1) Have realistic expectations
2) Be yourself

Thanks Promises. By the way has anyone ever told you that you look similar to that Judge Mablene Ephram (or whatever her name is) from Divorce Court that airs (or used to air) here in the USA ... hahahaha.

Well as most people on this site who've met people before can contest to meeting someone offline doesn't necessarily mean anything else will ever come about. First meetings can be rather akward in general, especially if both or at least one of the persons involved doesn't have a rather outgoing personality type.

At any rate though I can now say that I have at least met someone in person whom I met online. She was pretty much what I expected and that was cool. It doesn't appear that anything else will come about, but that's ok too. Thus, my search continues .....

I'm totally new at this too, but am optimistic about making new friends both male and female. I'm not a paying member yet, but am considering it. Looking forward to new friendships.

It seems hard to meet people in Sydney - which is much smaller than California.

I did it. I met TWO guys. Sounds bad I know.

Breakdown: Saturday morning 10am, met at Starbucks. Seemed nice and easy to talk to, but no eye contact. I asked him about his job, what kind of fun things he likes to do with his kids...he just kept looking down at his coffee cake and mumbled/talked.

So we part ways after an hour. About 20 minutes later he calls me on my cell phone and says: "It was nice to finally meet you and you seem very nice", maybe we can keep in touch."

WELL HIT ME WITH A BRICK! WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS EH?

5 hours later, I met my other chat buddy at the park near where I live.
Again, NO EYE CONTACT!!!! Despite my asking what he does for fun and relaxation, he talks about winning custody of his kids cause his ex is a drug user, and his bills are piling up. I made light of the situation and told him we all have financial problems.

I found myself sounding like his THERAPIST! So after pulling teeth yet again...we parted ways in 40 minutes! Too bad, i liked him and made me melt when I saw he wore his leather chaps. But he did have beautiful eyes! Bummer!

Sigh.....losing my nerve to meet someone again now. I make it UNBELIEVABLY CLEAR...I am not built like a Barbie Doll. I send them RECENT pictures, and yet....THEY EXPECT PAMELA ANDERSON?

Geez, very frustrating. Don't know if I want to try again, but then on the other hand, I need to get out there and meet people ya know?

I have been dabbling in this whole online thing for a while, but usually wind up being nothing more than "chat buddies" with those I corresponded with. Although I will admit that in the past I've been less focused and allowed myself to devote time to things that had no realistic expectations of moving to the "real world." I've since abandoned that mode of thinking and try to only deal with people whom I stand a chance of meeting offline in real time.

Even with this new mode of thinking not much has come about yet. Today, October 29, proved to finally result in me meeting someone offline whom I originally met through this very site. I won't say that anything will come about from it, but this was the first person ever whom I met offline whom I came to know because of a so-called "online dating site." I guess only time will tell if anything comes about from this.....

Tee-hee. You actually made me blush! I really kinda like this guy I've been IM'ing. Just wish he didn't tell me that he slept on her couch! See now I am starting to think the worst. And I don't think it's my fault I am thinking that.

Anyway, I am still IM'ing him. He's nice enough and he works near where I work!

Other than that, I am meeting this man from Ya-hoo Personals (I have since took my ad out) on Saturday at Starbcks! Hope he brings his Harley!!!! ****WARNING*** I will not be held responsible for my actions if he wears LEATHER! Hee hee!

I'm sure you're a wonderful woman, but you might try putting up a pic where you are smiling. I think it might catch more attention. Not a judgement... just a suggestion.

Not a thing you want to tell someone
you WANT TO MEET!

I have a profile on Yehoo Personals, made 2 good friends out of it but geez...more superficial people on there!

sigh....not sure whether I want to give up and just LET it happen on it's own.

Lucky for you I don't live next door, I'd be washin' your car, cuttin' your grass, goin' through your garbage...Did I say that? Doh!
