Online Dating Experience 26
Internet Dating - Learn From Experience

26 year old female from California

Where should I begin? Well, to put it mildly, Internet dating is about the worse experience I have ever had. Getting to know a person through the computer is just very flawed because that person can "talk" himself or herself up in person, but in real life be a real disappointment.

I have dated quite a few online so you will see what I mean.

I live in an isolated town where it is hard to meet singles, so my friend suggested that online dating might be a good thing.

The first one I met when I just turned 25. He was a brilliant grad student, but a little bit obsessed about me after just meeting me. We had an interesting conversation, but no real connection. After meeting for coffee that night he called me at midnight to let me know he got home okay. This was a little strange because we had parted ways three hours before and did not know each other all that well. Let's just say that was a little freaky.

The second guy was a snob. He basically told me I was not competent enough to do my job.

The third guy lied about being married one time to many. In emails he admitted to only having been married once. However, when we met it came out he had been married twice. There are just some things people should not lie about.

The fourth one appeared to be a winner at first. Amazingly we dated for over nine months. It turns out he lied the entire time about ever wanting to have more children, even though I had let him know before we even became serious that I only could be in a serious relationship with a man who wanted children. The whole time we were together he admitted that he would want that one day. Then, boom, one day he said he wanted to break up with me. I asked why, and he said it was because he never wanted to have children. Like an idiot I begged him not to break up with me and that I loved him so much I would give that up. However, I failed to realize he was just using me all those months and never really cared about me. He kept talking about how he preferred blondes, but like an idiot I stayed around until things feel apart.

After I begged him not to break up with me we ended up having an argument about something hurtful he said to me. He fixed the problem by never calling again. I guess he must have really not liked me to do that.

I was on the rebound after this relationship so I went back on The fifth guy lied about his education.

The sixth guy alluded to the fact I did not appear attractive in person, even though I look the same in pictures as I do in person.

The seventh guy was okay, but it turns out we had nothing to talk about in person.

The eighth one was rude and put me down in public.

The ninth guy said he could not see me again because I was not into friends with benefits.

The tenth guy had lots of friends who are girls, and I just found that annoying.

So after all of these experiences I have come to the conclusion: I would rather be alone until I meet someone I click with in real life. Sadly, I think I was using online dating to fill some void of my isolated small town life. We must work on ourselves before we can share our lives with someone else!
