Online Dating and Finding Love

It's been almost three years since I've been in a relationship. In that whole time, I've gone out on about 3 dates until recently. I took the time to get my bearings and to adjust to life as a single mom. Even in this time, I've wanted to find love, but I haven't been aggressively pursuing it until recently.

I joined an online dating site in hopes of finding love, a partner, and my soul mate. For the first few months, every time I would email someone, I wouldn't get a reply, and in the guys who emailed me, I wasn't interested. I was really thrilled when recently I received an email from someone who sparked my interest.

After a few emails back and forth, we went out on a first date. I felt the excitement and anticipation for it, especially when he asked me on the second date. On this second date, he had worked all day, so he wanted to watch a movie at his house, which I agreed to. Little did I know this was code for having sex.

We kissed for the first time on the couch, but when he tried to go further and I stopped it, he was offended. I said I wasn't like that, which apparently I wasn't clear in meaning I wasn't going to have sex on the second date.

Later that night, he called me a tease. I explained to him that I'm not but I need to "feel comfortable" (not my best choice of words) with a guy first. We agreed to see each other again, after all we each met the requirements we were both looking for in a mate, at least on paper. When he said the next time we saw each other, there would be no physical touching, I thought he was kidding…at least a little.

But he wasn't. On our third date, he kept to himself as I did. It was as though we were complete strangers, which definitely wasn't allowing me to feel more comfortable with him.

After this date, he said we wouldn't see each other again until I felt comfortable with him…in other words comfortable to have sex with him. Red flag, red flag, red flag!

So let me be clear, in my online dating profile, I specifically say I'm looking for a relationship and to find love. I'm not sure what about that suggests to a guy I just want to have sex. And just because someone meets your requirements on paper doesn't mean he will have manners or know how to treat you. It also doesn't mean there will be any connection whatsoever with him.

A guy I was interested in was finally interested in me just to find out all he wanted was sex. I felt like I was in high school again (not that that happened to me in high school--it didn't, but it sounds like something that does). I was disappointed not that this didn't work out with this jerk, but that I allowed myself to hope that it could…that I allowed myself to hope this guy was it. I was let down but allowing myself to get so excited about the possibility.

On the other hand, I know this brings me one step closer to the guy I'm meant to be with. I still have hope that the guy for me is out there. I have no idea where he is or when I'll find him, but he's out there. Until then, I'll have to go out with a lot of jerks in the meantime, but finding love with be worth it all.

5 Key Ingredients To Successful Online Dating – A Beginner’s Guide

Did you know that online dating is now so popular that as many as 50% of singles in the US use some form of internet dating service. The reasons for people turning to online dating are many and varied. In today's busy world, many simply do not have the time to socialize and meet potential partners in the traditional way. Others suffer from social anxiety disorder or are too shy and find it difficult to meet people in a social setting. And then there are those that have had a bad experience whilst dating and have therefore given up on finding someone socially.

How Internet Dating Sites Work

Now, online dating is not in itself a new concept. Internet dating sites have been around for a number of years, but the upsurge in popularity of online dating has led to a massive growth in the number of these sites on the internet, some of which yield great results whilst others do not work so well.

The way these dating sites work is that when you join one, you complete in a personal information profile. The site then compares your information with that of others and comes up with a match that it considers best suits your lifestyle. The aim is to match you with people that fit you so that you are much more likely to have a meaningful date. This eliminates having to go on many different dates and finding that you have nothing in common with the people you are dating.

The 5 Key Ingredients

The key to achieving success with online dating lies in how you use the site when you actually sign-up, and, although what I am about to reveal to you may seem obvious, when done correctly they can be the difference between success and failure when it comes to internet dating. I refer to them as the five key ingrediates of successful internet dating.

  1. Create A Great Profile.

This is without doubt the most important aspect of your dating site experience. A bland statement such as 'Nice girl seeks nice guy for an evening out' will not win any prizes here. You should take the time to say something interesting about yourself and the type of person you are hoping to meet. It also helps to sound jolly and confident. A little humour can also be an ice-breaker - if you can make someone laugh, they are more likely to want to contact you.

  1. Always Upload A Photo.

Remember 95% of people on dating sites only search for those that have provided a photograph of themselves. No doubt you want to see what other potential partners look like, therefore it seems reasonable that they will want to know what you look like. If you do not have a recent photo to hand or the one you have is not a great likeness of you, then you should say so in your profile.

  1. Be Proactive.

Don't just join a site and expect other people to contact you. Make sure you regularly search the database for people with whom you might be compatible and when you find someone you like, write to them immediately and tell them why you think you might be a good fit.

  1. Write Great Emails.

Once you have joined a site and you are presented with other members who are your match, then it is time to get down to the business of writing your first emails to send to them. The same rule applies here as the one mentioned in the piece above about creating a great profile. If it appears as though you cannot be bothered to say much about yourself, then the others will also not be bothered to reply. Not only should you tell the other person about yourself but you should also say why you think you might be compatible. Always make a point of responding to their profile. It goes without saying that if your email sounds interesting you are more likely to get a reply.

  1. Check Back With The Site Often.

There are two reasons why you should check back with the sight as often as possible. The most obvious reason is to keep up to speed with who has joined since you last logged-on - that special someone might have signed-up since you last visited the site so you would not want to miss out. More importantly, what most people do not know is that when you log into a dating site, your profile moves up the listings on the internal search engine which means that you are more likely to be spotted and subsequently contacted by other people. A visit at least once a day during the lifetime of your membership should ensure that you do not become a stranger to the site that you joined.

So there you have it. Five ingredients that should ensure that you have a positive, fun experience whilst you look for your ideal date online. However, one should always remember that there are some potential risks associated with online dating. Some people may appear wonderful on the internet but only for you to find them to be completely the opposite when you meet them in the flesh. Therefore there are issues of safety to consider. That being said, internet dating is, in the main, a very positive thing. There are many people looking to find love and companionship and for such people, the internet is the gateway to new found love and happiness.
