I find my self single again and although certainly not ready for another relationship I need to put the past behind me and move forwards in life and
not dwell on the past.
I met the MrsNonspecfic on an online dating site a little over five years ago and now that we have gone our seperate ways I decided to cheer myself up
by rejoining for a bit of fun.
I found that not many ladies will look for men and that it is down to us males to do the hard graft whilst they sit around awaiting to be woo'd as it
From what I gather most men on online dating sites fall into two catagories whilst sending opening messages to prospective partners.
The first group basically says "Do you want to have sex with me?" I think that they must send the message to every single member in a 30 mile radius
and hope one says yes but most ladies are annoyed by this.
The second group are generally good guys, a bit lonely and maybe a tad shy, they see someone they might like but lack the courage to go for it so
simply send a message that says "Hi!" this I understand is also annoying to the fairer sex as it says nothing about the person and they have to then
click on their profile and figuire this out for themselves.
Then there is me.
I treat online dating like I treat Ats, I speak my mind but usually with respect but try to throw in as much humour as possible as I know that
laughter is a great way of removing anxiety and breaks the ice as it were. The other thing that I find helps is that I do not really care and just
like having a laugh even if I go down like a lead balloon
A lady said very little about herself but did say ask me anything.
I asked her what her favorite power ranger was and that I liked the red one best, she could not help but respond to that.
Another asked if I could make them laugh and I asked if I had any chance with the profile pic I had chosen to offer myself up with, the one I put as
my avatar but was deemed innapropriate and it did indeed make her laugh and we are now getting on quite well.
As I said in the OP online dating can be quite fun if you make it that way
