l joined Cupid with gentle persuasion from my lovely niece, l had no real expectation of finding love, just thought it might be fun. after a few short weeks on site up pops a chap who called me MATE !!!...This guy needs help l thought !!! we chatted and chatted, messaged, giggled and laughed together and well there s enough stuff on here to write a book or two !!! Might even do just that one day !!!
I searched for him on FB. I didn t send him a friend request or anything like that. But now I feel I shouldn t have done that either. Because sometimes FB suggests friends you may know and I don t want to appear on this list for him! I shouldn t have done that.
I joined this site recently, because with work and family committment I struggle to have the free social lifestyle, to find a new partner. So I decided to join this site after no luck on other online dating site. And after a couple of weeks I had my first date, which went great! And we are going to our second date this weekend.
Goodmorning, I sent him the text like you recommended this morning, he sent one right back asking who I was, I sent one back with just my name, he sent another with a smiley face saying Goodmorning, what is that?is it some childish game??
" I was not expecting to meet anyone, my friends persuaded me to give it a go and it all feels very surreal because I have found an amazing man I now call my boyfriend! "
Love, love, love this article! Every do & don t is spot on. As a veteran online dater, I ve tried I practice all of these and find that when I do, it certainly weeds out the players.
The only thing I would add is this:
If a person deletes their ad immediately after the first or second date, be very wary and proceed with caution. This could have been done to give the illusion that you re so special, they have no interest in anyone but you. One can t possibly know this after one or two dates.
The other reason the ad was deleted so fast, is they have several on a string already, and have plenty of options to keep them busy for a while. If there s one- there could be ten.
I learned this from very recent personal experience, unfortunately.
Dear Mirror of Aphrodite,
I am a 88 year old man and would just like to say that I enjoyed reading your commentary with regards to online dating. I hope every woman is heeding advice of this nature. To be honest, I have made some of the classic blunders you describe. I subscribe more so to the old world and are struggling with many aspects of online dating ettiquette. I concur with many of the responses you suggest that come from men. It makes the prospect of having a meaningful conversation very difficult. I can appreciate that many of the ladies have become suspicious or a simply worn down from the rubbish they encounter. Thank you for creating a document, which gives me this insight and more of an opportunity to find a genuine lady.
I should mention that he said he wanted to meet me the week he was going to be in town so I don t understand why all of a sudden he isn t trying to get together. I told him we could try to meet next week and he just came back with an I m sorry it looks like we will have to wait before we can meet.. What is that all about? I m confused!
