I met someone from here and he lives across town from me. We dated for about three weeks. Then we broke it off. I have no hard feelings. He's a great guy just said he wasn't feeling it and I didn't want to be the only one falling for someone. I really miss him. I keep hoping that maybe he'll come around so we can talk.
As I've said before, the abbility to deceive oneself about people over the internet is simply staggering so any talk beforehand of people being gorgeous and lovely should ALWAYS be taken with a sizeable pinch of salt.
All we're going off are photos and as lovely as some of us are we could have terrible BO, not have any arms or any kind of unattractive characteristics.
So you should see all pre-meeting conversations as little more than chit-chat with a work-collegue you end up asking out or a few minutes spent together at a party.
You are absolutely right Gordy. It is their loss. I truly wish that you were in the US or I was in the UK because I would snatch you up in a minute. And I know many others that feel the same way. You are a great guy and if someone can't see that then they aren't good enough for you. Remember that.

That's awesome! I did the SAME thing. Joined just for this one guy, emailed him, we'd communicated via email/phone for a month..had our first date lastnight and...WOW is all I have to say! We'll be seeing eachother again! Congrats on "your find"!
Hey u all, yes i have met someone on this site, (no names), he was a nice guy, and i saw him a couple of times,but he was just not the guy 4 me,it was a shme, but thats how the cookie crumbles, better luck for me next time !!!

YES! I have met a couple of wonderful women from here. The first didn't work out. Now, I am seeing the most incredible woman, and we are crazy about each other. Things are going so well, in fact, I have cancelled my membership here and it will expire on 10/5.
So, yes, this sight does work. Just be patient and be yourself, and you will find them too.
I have met several from here. I met one guy who ended up living right around the corner from me.... go figure! I guess I am one of the lucky ones because I really haven't had the hastles a lot of women talk about on here. I have received over 500 views, over 200 winks and almost 100 emails.... and I think I only had maybe 2 or 3 unfavorables. I do not get upset if much older men or much younger men wink at me or email me. If someone winks or emails me, I look at their profile.... if I'm interested, I email them and give them a way to contact me.... If I'm not interested, then I send them a very polite email thanking them for the interest but that I am not interested for whatever reason.
But yes, this site does work if you work the site! Just my two cents worth.
I've met one guy from this site. It was my first date ever (and his too he said) but it didn't go so well. Nothing horrible happened. We just didn't click. Or rather he didn't click for me but I think he reeeally liked me because he was very touchy-feely. Not in a bad/por'no way, just awkward and way too fast for me. The fact that I wasn't attracted to him in that way probably had something to do with it too. And then I had to tell him that I didn't feel the same about him and I just felt awful. I never heard from him again. I think to me that's the worst. Not when the guy's a jerk but when he's a really decent, sweet, good person but you just don't have anything in common and the spark just isn't there. I hate that.
Well, I haven't "physically" met anyone from here...perhaps b/c I get a ton of winks and such and nobody lives near me! They're all from Germany, Sweden, London and all over the US...no where near Chicago!
Well.....Tis early days, but I had a lovely telephone chat with a guy I have been talking to that I met here, we are looking at lunch soon...so I will get ya all know if n when it happens.
I certainly have met some great people via this site, and had some great laughs, and long may it continue
I AGREE!! This is my first time on this site but I am not new to online dating. With this, just like meeting on the street, you win some, you lose some. I have met some great people, dated, and still have managed to remain friends with some. I find something in this site that I haven't experienced on others---SUPPORT. Stick around. You may find this exciting!!
You know Sunshine that is a good question, and in answer I have met my first gent just last week. It didn't work out to well cause I think he wanted something on the first meeting that good girls don't do, if you get my drift.. You can find some true honest men on here but as you'v read you must state what you want and not let them lead you down the path to what they want.. Go for it girl.
