The world of dating has gotten out of hand. They have allowed for women to give us guys seven minutes to win them over in what they call "speed dating". So much for foreplay. I mean seriously, whatever happened to the wine me, dine me days of dating.
You would be able to meet a nice girl on line at a grocery store, say something kind of witty then entice the girl to gladly exchange phone numbers. After a couple of phone calls and the getting to know you are not a psycho stage you could then work up to inviting this nice young lady to dinner.
All this has changed. Now instead of exchanging phone numbers it becomes "Are you on online?"
At first I was like how impersonal, you would rather stare at my hot pics online then see me in the flesh??? You would rather send me e-mail at 2 O'clock in the morning than be enjoying cocktails and conversation at the local bar??? What has the world of dating become?
It has become an online dating world. You are actually more likely to meet someone interested in dating on the computer than at the convenience store.
This does not mean that you have to go to an online dating service and pay tons of membership fees to pick up ladies but these services almost always guarantee a hook up. You can go the route of the free networking sites but there are no sure things.
Out of my own personal experience the first connection I made in the online dating world was with one of these paid services.
I made a profile, and let the women seek me out. This cute Latino girl e-mailed me. I messaged her back, we met, had dinner and some laughs.
It was a home run. Not bad to bat 1.000 as a rookie. I did find though, people solely looking to date through these paid online dating services were really looking for a "serious commitment.
Think about it, if a girl is going to throw down some money to meet someone, it is not because they want to select their next booty call, they want Prince Charming, The White Wedding and they want to live happily ever after. I personally did not want that kind of pressure or expectations, as I do not like to break hearts so I found a different route.
I signed up for an account at one of the major blog networks. They may as well be called "Dating Blogs". Not only do you have a great opportunity to meet nice lovely ladies of all races, shapes and sizes but you can do so without having to spend any money. You can browse through all the profiles of ladies meeting your specified search criteria in a radius close to home.
After narrowing down your search you can check out their page which allows the girls to create some pretty interesting sites with music, pictures and all different types of "spirit". Here the girls will make you earn their acquaintance but I find that they also are more down to earth.
While I haven't hooked- up with any of these girls, I have made some good friends that have potential.
While the initial introduction might have moved from meeting a nice girl on line at the supermarket to meeting the girl of your dreams online at the "Super Meat Market of Dating" at least the stores in cyber space never close and you can do your "shopping" from home. While there were several pros and con to each type of online service, remember the goal is for the actual date, or is it?.
