Internet Dating.

edited March 2012 in Not Sports Related
Was just speaking to a bloke in work who's going out on a date tonight with a bird he met on the net.
Now apart from the obvious, i hope it's not a guy or the picture isn't 15 years old. What's your views on it?

Is it a bit strange meeting a stranger from the internet to take out or is it just another reasonable option to the single?

    did it over a long period with some success, geting the right site is the key

    I once did a runner from some scary scottish nurse who's picture must have been taken ten or fifteen years prior, she weren't too chuffed, but as I am a gentleman (of course) you can imagine just how bad she was to make me do that, personality mainly.. it was involuntary, my legs just took me when she was in the lav, and suddenly i was pegging it down the road at high speed. I did text her sorry I had to go but not before she had left a very abusive VM.
  • I know lots of people who've tried it, with mixed results. On balance I think it's a reasonable option these days.

    What do all the single men on dating sites have in common? They're all married! Boom boom.
  • when on plentyoffish as a dare and ended up going through 9 birds in 3 months.

    and its free.
  • If I was single and not eleven years into a life sentence I'd be straight into it. Working funny hours would make it hard for me to meet anyone so rather than stay lonely I'd utilise what was available.

    Plus I have a couple mates who internet date and they've got up to all sorts of shenanigans!

    That made me laugh !
  • A couple of my mates do it.
    One of them got a nice Brazilian girl.
    The other got a big fat Welsh lesbian.
  • Was 110% into it. Till I met my missus. Stick to the bigger sites though....

    I was on various sites over a 2 yr period, went on a few dates, a couple of brief relationships until I met my current partner of 6 months online. Great for those who simply don't have the time to be constantly going out on the prowl, or if like me, in my mid-forties. The stigma attached to it has gone.

    Just be aware, there's some strange people out there. Women tend to lie over exaggerate when filling out their profile, normally describing themselves as very attractive, a social butterfly who loves going to parties etc. If they're such a catch, what are they doing on dating sites?

    Also, watch out for all the scammers on the free sites (mainly in russia). You can normally spot them easily enough.

    Like Razil, I also had one who used a pre-war photo and was naturally disappointed when we met, but going by the conversations we'd had previously, a bunk up was on the cards so who was I to turn it down??
  • Sporty = no tits
    Curvy = fat
    Bubbly = dont stop talking
    likes romantic night in = boring
  • I once signed up to one of those online dating websites but after a while I gave up.

    They matched me up with my missus!

  • It doesn't have the same stigmatism that it had some years ago. I have tried it and went on a few dates with some reasonable people. The only thing was wading through bunches of really strange poeple to get to the few normal ones, but they are fairly easy to weed out just from the first replies you get. I nver ended up on dates with anyone that I wouldn't have got talking to in a club, if that makes sense.
  • Hahaha, some of these stories have made my day.

    The only one i really know is Plenty of fish, but that seems really seedy and unlikely to meet a decent bird on there?
  • the most embarressing thing about these websites is seeing some one you know on them as well.

    Been on plenty of fish and its rubbish, loads of fat birds and scammers on there. If you're serious i hear match.com is one of the best. You have to pay for it, but it also means they'll be less scammers or time wasters on there.
  • GSOH = Annoying

  • been on plenty of fish for a few years, varied results, been cyber stalked by a few nutters who by just sending a message saying hello im ad nice to meet you, took it as lets get married and have 15 kids.. scary, also met some diamonds tho.
  • Bloke I work with met a bird on t'interweb, again an old picture, or as he suspects not even the same girl, anyway she lived near him so he picked her up in his car and they went to a restaurant in Lakeside, they ordered the grub and got the starters, he was getting more pissed off cos she had obviously fibbed, she was at least 2 stone heavier than the pic, so he said he was going to the kharzi and just went home! She might still be there for all he knows......

  • Tell your "friend" that I made a few mistakes when selecting a site to join. For instance, Screwfix.com in NOT an internet dating site!

    Er...Lol...I'll tell him ;o)
  • I think it's brilliant. Never tried it but if I was single in this day and age I know I'd be at it 24/7. FFS! The more I think about the concept of meeting women on line the more jealous I am of all you young single chaps out there, and also how sorry I feel for you lasses who won't find me......
  • Never did internet dating as such but have met quite a few women over the years through internet message boards etc and have made lots of friends and had a couple of romances. In this day and age I don't think there's any real stigma attached to it and for people who might look a bit out of place in a nightclub full of teens/20-somethings it's a good way to meet people.

  • tbh most of the people my age (18-21) are too fat, boring or emotionally unstable to find and meet some one. You can spend 20 minutes browsing plenty of fish and forget that all women arent overweight.
