I must be a masochist because I keep on using online dating and just experiencing rejection after rejection. Four years I've been using it on and off. In that time I've grown close to perhaps 20 girls, but every single one of them has stood me up when it finally came to meeting.
The last girl I was talking to, we exchanged perhaps 50 emails, 200+ texts, spoke on the phone for hours on several occasions. We had loads in common and got on really well. She invited me to go for a drink with her after work and I agreed. Earlier in the day that we were supposed to meet I got a text message from her asking for a picture so she would know how to spot me. We'd exchanged lots of pictures up to that point already, but it made sense that she wanted to know what I would be wearing so I was easy to spot. I got myself cleaned up, had a shave, picked out what I would be wearing and sent her a pic. I got a message back a few minuets later commenting on how I looked different after shaving (I usually have a few days growth). The tone of the message was a bit different from normal. Usually she said how good I looked. I asked if she was disappointed? She said no, but that she liked guys with stubble. 10 minuets after that I got another message saying that she wasn't in the right head space to be meeting and she didn't want to talk to me anymore. I asked why? She said it was because she just found out she was pregnant with her abusive crack-head ex's baby. It was a lie and a very transparent one given conversations we'd had in the past. Fact was, she didn't want to meet because I'd had a shave and that ruined her perceived image of me, but rather than admit to being shallow, she invented some story to make her self out to be some tragic victim.
This is pretty much how every girl I've met online has acted.
