I came back from travels keen to meet a lady, i dont have a probem approaching a girl in the streets or work or what ever but, i figured it would be
fun to look at this dating site stuff.
normal meet and greet dating right, you walk up to a pretty girl on the street have a few dates, see where it goes.
But in that initial time, your willing to accept or look past things, because you think you like them. Example, interests and hobbies.
2yrs down the track you find all the fun stuff you want to do, they dont. They dont mind you doing it, but you want to do it together. it kinda
backfires and your not feeling it right...
Internet dating is like window shopping, find someone with the same interests and see what happens. I had a look, find a girl who likes scuba diving,
hiking, photography, travel, movies and wine in a Forrest cabin.. you know, things you can both enjoy together. I found a few girls and went on a
couple of 'first round drinks'... but i couldn't get over the fact, we met on a dating site.
Not the desperation side of it, but ,... how do the dynamics work? it seems like a job interview, how many dates until you remove your internet
profile? when do you start moving away from x amount of meetings into a blossoming friendship?
In the end it wasn't for me.
as cliche as it is, I say, if you want to meet a girl sign up to things you enjoy.
I signed up to an astronomy group, take our telescopes ot the mountains for a weekend camping trip 3-4 times a year. I joined a mixed basketball team
and a mixed netball team.
I go to my work functions, i chat i laugh i move between groups talking to people.
I'm thinking of signing up to a language class, maybe mandarin or japanese, meet someone there.
There's so many single women around who just want a guy with a good heart.
When it comes to women?
If you wear to much makeup and are a slave to fashion and clothe shops... your as fake as Paris Hilton.
If you wear short skirts and revealing clothes... your as boring as a white wall
If you talk about money and cars and tall sexy strong men, your likely to cheat for the next 'best' thing
But if you have flaws, smile and laugh, have hobbies passions and goals.. then hey, id love to buy you a drink!
