Online Dating Experience 12
Weed Them Out
30 year old male from Arizona

Basically when I do the online dating thing, I have a sequence called "weed them out" I go through.

When I send out a reply to a personal ad, I stick to women who don't have pictures on their profiles because there's a better shot at her responding back to me because she'll get less responses. Then it's pretty much a crap shoot as to what she'll look like -- and I've hit beauty queens down to Soupy Sales in Drag. I'm not picky and as long as I can walk down the street with her, she looks OK to me.

First of all, I weed out the ones who never want to go out on In Real Life dates. All they want to do is email or talk on the phone, and that gets boring. I don't chat with a girl for more than two weeks without an actual face to face date planned. Plus, in personal ads, you get a lot of "out of state" women sending responses. These women do this because they don't want to meet face to face; they just want something to do while they sit at home alone on a friday/saturday night. Weed those out.

Then weed out the workaholics who go to school full time, work full time and then on top of it have part time jobs. Nobody needs a girl who has one night off every 2 or 3 weeks.

After that, weed out the ones who need a man to rescue them from financial or family obligations. "I have $20,000 in credit card debt" or "I have to take care of my disabled father" are sure-fire fatal flaws.

From there, see where the road takes you.
