Anyway, I've been on it about a week and I have to say I've actually liked more matches than I thought I would. Here's the problem, they don't all like you back. I've started the initial step with quite a few matches and only one has gotten back to me. There's also one guy who initiated with me that I'm now at the e-mailing point with. And, irony of ironies, at least 10 of the men I've deleted or closed or whatever have all wanted to start communication. See, online dating isn't that far from the real world. It's very rare that the people you like like you back.
I'm going in this time with no expectations. Even at the e-mail point. I learned last time that just because they sound good in e-mail and you think you connect means nothing until you meet in person. Everything can change when you meet. Seriously, it's amazing. I still don't understand how people will allow matching across the U.S. and then fly to meet somebody! What if you have NO chemistry in person or they look nothing like their picture and you're not attracted to them! Too much risk!
I won't go on forever, but I will start writing about my online dating experiences, including tips, stories, and just observations I've made of what's out there. My friends are already enjoying the stories and hopefully you will too!
