Online dating only works women
There was nothing romantic or spontaneous about it, and it required a lot more time and energy than I expected.
I recommend online dating for practice if you haven't dated in a while, but ultimately, I think the chances of meeting someone great are small and require a whole lot of effort.""I'm a Baby Boomer who never thought she’d be single at 60. I met one guy from California that I flew out to spend time with only to learn he was looking for a woman to support his lazy behind. Or they are sick and want a woman to be their nurse.
From childhood, men have been brought up to be fierce competitors, to opt for the most risky jobs, to put themselves on the line, to accept rejection “like a man” and to always make the first move.
This product of social conditioning rears its ugly head online even more so, as an average of seven men compete for the attention of one woman.
Every picture he ever used was from this site, and I immediately felt violated and betrayed.

They are able to hide behind gadgets and feel that they can be completely disrespectful.
I got the idea to try and figure out how to reverse image through Google, dropped his picture in and bam -- the pictures were linked to an Instagram account in England of a semi-famous personal trainer.
A few dates resulted in attempted rape, a 'stage-5 clinger,' and a bunch of insecure guys who ended up telling me I was a 'teasing whore' when I didn't feel a connection.""Men online are crass and crude.
It's worse than being at a bar with the unsolicited dick pictures and sexually charged introductions -- 'You look like you take it up the ass.' Men have become bolder and not in a good way.
Despite its popularity, not everyone's experience with online dating is positive. ’ I would try to edit my profile to be what I thought guys wanted. You really have no idea who they are and what they're about or if you have any chemistry.
Plenty of women are opting out of the "efficiency" of the swipping world, instead choosing to find a date the old-fashioned way. I would type, delete, type again, delete, etc., like I didn't know who I was in real life. You're just asking these basic questions wondering when it's cool to really be yourself.
