Well let's just say he was handsome as hell. He told me he didn't have a profile pic because he wanted to weed out the people that only cared about looks.

Not very good odds. The real odds are probably lower. On-line Dating Doesn't Work Test it and found no one really wants to date just browse. John Kanyon 14 months ago I have a slight feeling I should probably break up with my current girlfriend online. None of my past relationships online have worked and I broke a vow that I will never get into another long-term relationship because I know the results will not only break their heart, but it will break mine too and depress me.
I've possibly just shoved a lot of "love" into her face saying how much she means to me and other things, so it might break her heart badly. She is going through a lot, and dumping her now would be bad.
But I still don't wish to hurt her emotions in the future. Because that'll leave a mark on me. And I have a few friends online that know how much I've said I care about her and how much she has told them how much I matter to her. So I will be hated by around 7 friends. And lose at least 3 because of it. Any suggestions on what to do? I need actual advice for once.

What do you think about online dating? - Off-Topic Discussion - GameSpot
It's missing all the intangibles of sexual attraction and chemistry. I wasted so much time messaging hundreds of women only to scrape together the occasional date which almost immediately I knew was a mistake. Had I met these women in person I would have known instantly that I wasn't interested. People have been getting together for thousands of years by meeting face to face. Remember that a simple message can go a long way.
How did you eventually end up meeting the guy you ended up marrying? We lived across the hall from each other our first year of university. We became good friends first and we only started dating 2 years later. That was mostly because I transferred schools, but because we became friends first, we had a connection that drew us back together for a chance at something more. What we found out was that we had much, much more than friendship in store for us.
Online Dating Is Frustrating for Men Being a nice guy is probably the worst thing to be when it comes to online dating. You are a little more than collateral damage, as the large majority of guys slather, drool and stomp their way through the crowds, scaring off most of the nice girls that arrive on these sites, as evidenced by the interview above.
This experience is best exemplified by my close friend who I will call Eric. Eric has been using a couple of online dating websites off and on for the past year, with very little success. Despite his efforts, few girls ever answer his carefully crafted, very kind messages. How long have you been using online dating websites?
I started out using Match. Most importantly is that she likes doing similar things that I do. Secondly of course is that the profile gives me some feeling that there could be chemistry. Do you think the algorithm and the other tools the dating sites offer help at all?
Some of them I guess. Like, OKCupid gives you a percentage of match or non-match you are with certain people. Do you have any advice for women out there who use online dating sites and might be reading this? Stop ignoring all of us. Instead, you know, I think a lot of them are still hung up on hunting for the bad boys, the smooth-talkers. A few years ago, OKCupid calculated that Match was only marginally better, coming in at OKCupid was acquired by Match inand that article has since been taken down for obvious reasons.
Of course, putting something on the internet is kind of like catching herpes: And that would be wise… if not for the scads of other evidence that online dating sites do in fact juice up their numbers. To date, Match has been involved in a spate of lawsuits by disgruntled daters, alleging that the vast majority of their member profiles are inactive or outright fake.
One suit went as far as to accuse Match of employing shills to entice members to renew their subscriptions. These cases were all dismissed or droppedbut the most recent one in did produce disheartening results well, disheartening for online daters — the results were great for Match.
This time, a federal judge threw out the case, on the grounds that Match makes perfectly clear in their terms of service that they do not screen member profiles, nor will they take any responsibility for doing so. In other words, even if the allegations are absolutely correct that most of their profiles are inactive or fake, Match is not obligated in any way to remove them. And hey, mad props to you for being such an exemplary case of human savvy.
Still, you might want to pay attention to this storyof the woman who went on a few dates with a man she met on Match, only to end up getting stabbed multiple times by him when she tried to break it off. Once again, Match got slapped with a lawsuit.
And this time… whoa, they actually did something about it. InMatch finally announced that they would start implementing background checks. Woo hoo, score one victory for the online dater, right?
Hailing down on their own parade, Match admitted that the background checks may do little good. Were you actually trying to help? So, go ahead and enjoy online dating if you dare.
