Internet dating is for weirdos


This is not a takedown of online dating or people using online dating, since I am one such person.This is an attempt to explain why otherwise successful men have difficulty meeting women online.

and the incessant TV commercials for, it feels like the Internet is the place tons of people are meeting potential dates.

Why am I telling you this sweet but unremarkable anecdote?

Because my girlfriend and I first met through an internet dating agency.

For those of us old enough to remember, Myspace was the original online dating site, back in the day when Myspace was still a thing.

Well, okay, it wasn’t a dating site – it was a social media site, but a lot of people used it as a way to meet potential boyfriends or girlfriends.

To me, this result is truly bizarre and unexpected.

Indeed, if you had told me a few years ago that I would one day be internet dating, actually meeting women online, I would have spluttered with outrage.

Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. Well, I think it's rather strange when a man thinks "alot" is one word. I do not know what they wanted with me, but whatever it was, it's gonna be freaky!

Seems like a common occurrence that alot of females on POF feel some guys are freaky/weird/strange ... On top of that, they all lived 300 to 600 miles away.

Luckily, the ones most affected by this are the women you’d likely avoid anyways. Confidence is very difficult to express with a photo or a description.

The best profiles show humour and cockiness; true confidence is elusive.
