Online Dating

Online dating has 2 different types of people, whether it's male or female; those looking for love, those looking for their hole.

 

You will save yourself a lot of trouble by simply stating you are not looking for anything serious from the very beginning.

 

That way, you have an excellent 'out' if things end up like this and you get to avoid the ones that will take at least 10 dates and about ?1k spent on nights out before you even get to find out her bra size.

 

Granted, if you rely more on charm and wit to get girls into bed rather than looks, it may be a struggle to use this method, but it will work eventually and will guarantee you avoid situations like this.

 

Geeze Oh -Dating has changed a lot since I was young. Thank feck for the palais of yesteryear.

I did the online dating thing for a while and failed miserably at it.

 

In my experience, most of the bursds on these sites are there for an ego boost more than anything else - not cos they actually want to date anyone, but more cos they want to tel their mates how many folk messaged them. A fair number of them don't even fill out a profile 'will fill in later' - but will still have an inbox full of thirsty guys based purely on a couple of pics.

 

I was on POF waaaaaaaay waaaaaaay back before it was popular / cool and back then you could just about count on a reply to every message you sent. These days? In my experience probably about 1% of the messages I sent got a reply in return.

 

Of course, that could be as a result of the fact i'm not exactly an image of what the perfect man would look like, or perhaps my patter is just rubbish - maybe both. Who knows.

 

Wouldn't waste my time with it these days.

What's so bad about it?

I must admit, even although I'm 22 I don't think I could do it.

 

For me it would be the fear of people I know seeing me desperate enough to go online for a s#@g is just terrifying..!

It's surely not like that anymore? Has it not become the norm with no stigma? I'd be all over it if I want married.

I think of "on line dating" as the new "lonely hearts" pages in the paper, not sure it'd be my thing, rather chat up a fat bird in a pup!!

Haha. Can't edit this now. That should read "if I want married".

 

I missed out on the online thing and my Mrs won't let me do it now.

It's POF I'm using and I'm beginning to think I'm wasting my time on it.  I might actually need to upgrade to something like Match.com or whatever.  My mate is on that and has quite a high success rate and he happily admits he isn't the best looking.  The only thing is the price of them is ridiculous.  

 

In the perfect world I wouldn't need it but between getting the kids every Friday and second Friday/Saturday I don't get the chance to get out much so I thought, I'll have myself a bit of that.  Probably fine if your a muscly, tattooed, top knotted, BMW driving, non-sock/espadrille wearing stock-broker but for the average guy like me, man it's testing.  Doesn't do much for the self-esteem :rofl:

 

I should either lower my standards (which admittedly are lowering as the years go on) or just pack it in and hang up the baws.  Spend my life drinking tea, watching homes under the hammer, take up bowls and go for a quiet pint of heavy on a Saturday night.

I'm just talking about tinder here.

 

Just an extra avenue for a ride. Nothing wrong with having too many opportunities. I have no idea about the serious dating ones like POF etc

The lassie sounds like she's playing hard to get.

 

Don't give up....what if her steak pie is delicious? You'll never forgive yourself.

 

Write her a poem or some shit like that.

I've summarised the sites below based on my own and friend's experiences of online dating previously.

 

match.com - ridiculously expensive and doesn't specify between paid members and free ones.  Therefore, you could message a girl and she would not be able to see who sent it unless she subscribed. Because it's a pay one. less nut jobs, but also found them to be a bit dull.  

 

Tinder - free and works well in that you match with girls, so at least you know there's mutual interest rather than firing of messages in the hope of a reply. Pretty high conversion rate on this, plus it's easy to find them on Facebook due to it's connection. That way you can get an idea of what they might look like in the flesh.

 

POF - free and lots of girls on this.  Some weirdos, but on the whole pretty good.  Lots of competition from strange men.  Even the ugliest girl gets loads of messages a day,

 

OKCupid - Like POF, but a more leftfield.  Hippy vegetarian types.  

 

At the end of the day though it's like real life in that the most attractive people will have the most success.  Most people will be somewhere in the middle.

Any updates on this? Did you reply to her message or did you just pie her

Kind of update. 

 

Appears she has noticed that my POF profile is active.  I'm not sure entirely what she expected but at no point did I say I was only chatting to her.  Now the texts have calmed and maybe she is getting the hint.  Feel shit for it because she was a nice lass but I just don't fancy her.

A JBK Dating advice thread is what the world needs.

Women trawling the internet for vulnerable men to have their wicked way with are not the way forward CC my good man. Here's audioslave's top tips for being single AND successful;

 

1) See those standards you currently have - get them chucked right out the window

2) Replace those standards with those of a 15 year old boy. Confused? I'll simplify - just have the mindset of "I'll literally ride anyone"

3) Always make sure you're smashed - everyone's patter is infinitely better with a skinful in them

4) No matter what a dame tells you, you pretend to be interested - you've got 2 arseholes? Fascinating. You're a bed wetter? Tell me more.

5) Obey the 3 pump rule - no matter how great a girl is in terms of look/chat/potential wife material - once you've bagged her 3 times, cease all communication

6) Find another single chum who's a lot less attractive than you. Chances are when he's got a skinful in him and tries to chat up a Betty she'll be horrified, then you swoop in and seem like this years model.

7) Always have at least 3 dafties on the go at once

8) If all else fails - get a hooker

 

Thank you and good night.
