Consider, is dating online weird apologise, but, opinion
Posted in Online dating
Remember years ago when the only way to meet someone was by wandering up to a stranger in a bar or depending on your awful friends to set you up with their random coworker? Those days are long gone as the internet has become flooded with dating sites. After digging through depths of the web that I wish could be forever purged from my search history, here are the most bizarre dating sites out there. How sweet! Darwin Dating
You just don't know who you will meet. But online dating sites are likely going to attract some members who have issues within 'real life' society. Thanks so much! Online dating can be an adventure, but it is possible to meet a perfectly nice person while using the sites, too. It helps to have a sense of humor until meeting that perfectly nice person. I will of course bear all this in mind if I ever succumb to internet dating. Voted up and funny. I am happy you enjoyed it. Online dating definitely has its ups and downs.
Seriously funny. I haven't laughed so much in a while. Enough to put anyone off online dating. I just try to look at it as an adventure and that works best. I am currently dating someone that does not fall into any of the categories above and I am pleased about that. I never partook in online dating so I had no idea Best wishes in your continued search. I've had that happen too. Thanks for checking out my hub!
Ardot - I've found the most successful online dating stories often begin with two people meeting without really looking for each other. There is less pressure and people act more like themselves. However, I do know two married couples that met on POF, so it can work on dating sites, too. I am not too sure foot fetish gal exists either, but then again, I am not looking for her. Jmillis - I am happy you enjoyed my hub. Maybe you will give online dating a shot sometimes. I can be Thanks for the vote up!
I have never really tried online datingbut this was a very entertaining hub. In those days it was easy to be "the guy who says he is a girl and chats with guys as a girl" guy.
In those days the online dating scene was for prison inmates and weirdo's posing as people they were not. But seriously, I met her in the chat room but was not looking to meet anyone, I was just hanging out as a guy and happened to find a normal person who lived nearby.
By not looking for love online, I have avoided all of the above profiles you have mentioned. I love the way you used humor to get across a real point. It can be very dangerous to meet face to face with anyone online. BTW, guys, stop looking for the elusive "foot fetish gal". She does not exist as you imagine her. Thank you for your post. Nice to understand the online dating scene from a women's perspective. Only success story I have is running into a chick I dated and became friends after meeting again.
And ohhh, a MySpace success story! I don't hear about too many of those, but I remember dating a guy or two from MySpace. Those dates actually went better than many of my POF dates.
Good point about not knowing until you're at mom's house haha. Reminds me of the movie Hangover. Oh yes, the Mama's Boy. There are plenty of them on dating sites. You just can't tell at first. It takes a date or two sometimes at Mom's house before you realize it.
Really fun article to read. Just wanted to add Mama's boy. Your welcome.
I do understand that, they can be hard to date when that's all they want to talk about. Even if you, yourself, play games it gets old. I have also dated the gamer guy in the past. He is not a horrible person, but typically gamer guy is not a fun date I prefer the gamer guy more then any of those guys. I like games and find that if you run out of things to talk about then just ask them what game they are playing and within hours you are able to figure out all the cheats to your new game.
I think I've dated just about all the guys on this list, too. There are some real weirdos out there! So awesome, I am 19 years old and have dated all these guys before or at least meet them online or in person. Everything you said is basically true. Thanks so much for your comment! You are so right As a matter of fact, I think many guys still believe they are in high school and haven't matured much beyond it. This was funny! It looks like there is not much difference out there from the guys that were in high school, well except there is the scary factor now.
Love this hub! Thank you and I agree that our "gut" instinct really is the tell-tale sign of fear telling you to run like hell or maybe some fluttery butterfly saying "hey this could work! Thanks for the great advice! I totally believe in background checks too. There are some really shady characters out there. I can't believe what a crazy guy you ending up meeting. I am glad you had him figured out. I think plenty of guys are OK online, just a lot are socially awkward or shy.
It is a crazy world out there! I think most men online are are weirdo's not all but most. A quick real life scenario that happened to me recently. I am a filmmaker who was hiring actors for a short film I was doing. One particular actor and I hit it off as friends and started talking.
He is currently on his second wife and from the UK Wales. He claims he fell in-love with me and only married twice for his citizenship.
Potential Serial Killer
I started to smell a rat and felt everything he was saying to me was a lie so I investigated him found his first wife and she told me everything pertaining to who this guy really is. He has a rape charge against him from when he was 16 cheated on her with transsexuals and a cocktail waitress and was also physically abusive.
She and I recently got in-touch with his current wife who is pregnant and sent her some evidence and info. All I have to say is this experience rocked my world and really makes me look at men in a different way. My advice to everyone is to really do their homework on individuals. I find most people just get caught up in fake charm etc. Really ask questions one thing he always said was "I'm very very smart".
I'm glad I didn't date him or marry him not that I would. Pay attention to red flags and listen to your gut. Background checks and interviews with the exes nowadays you can't be too careful or too trusting. I really appreciate your feedback and thanks for sharing my hub. It has been a weird and rocky road with online dating.
The Ugly Truth About Online Dating | - cbeebies-games.com. No. The fact that online dating apps/websites have millions of user base means online dating has become a common way for people to get to know new people. In big cities like New York, where people need to work a lot or at odd hours, online dating. Sep 22, It is not weird good relationships start from online dating and you get 2 know the person betta 1st. it is also viewed as the future in teen lifestyles and adults alike i use online dating and i hav found 1 really good boyfriend the only unfortunate thing is when u break up it seems much worse than it is because you don't really know.
The online dating and meeting is bitter and sweet experience both at the time or at the different time. Thanks for sharing this awesome information. Really impressed with your touch to online meeting.
Liked and shared. This is supposed to be a sarcastic hub based on my actual experiences. There really are some guys like this on the dating sites Lighten up, dude. I don't think it is appropriate to judge people and put them in categories like this.
Anyway, seems like you are being really negative and stereotyping people based on vague impressions. I do know what you mean However, there is a time to let go. I've approached guys that have totally ignored me, too.
It happens. Thanks for the comment! I think we have typecast just a bit. Probably guilty of getting upset when not replied to- but I admit it, at least. You stay on a site for 4 years and meet a profile that is a perfect match I don't think too many men would find this FUN.
Of course, you just move on, etc. Great Article, I actually do online dating as well, and yes there are some creapers out there, and there are some good guys too.
The 24 Most Bizarre Dating Sites On The Internet | Thought - Probably the grossest dating site on the list, this one promises no uglies or fatties. How sweet! Nov 01, And guys, yes, I know there are some weird women approaching you on online dating sites, too. By all means, please write your own hub about it. I really do want to hear all about it from a male's perspective. For now, let's discuss guys using online dating sites from the female perspective. Oct 02, Online dating is weird. Dating is weird. You kind of have to force yourself to be yourself. Sounds really weird, but if you love stupid puns and craft beer, put it in your profile. (An example) If they hate what you like, it'll either be a great conversation that leads to more or a deal breaker. Online, with so many options and bland profiles.
It's a lot of work filtering through and finding good dates. Thank you for sharing. Oh yes, both show a lot of style and class. When I see those photos, I think "winner! Or sunglasses in a dark room! Yes, it is an added bonus if the room is dark and the photo is a little grainy.
That serial killer look is so hot. Thanks for the comment. Nothing attracts me more than a profile picture of a stern man glaring at the lenses, unshavenhair a mess, and half naked.
Jessie Whitmere - We just might have dated the same guy! I think some guys need to come to terms with what they really want. It is sad to live a lie. Even weirder, the guy I went out with had even managed to find a wife at some point, but it ended quickly.
Bet I know why! Grant N. There are plenty of people out there that are also shy, but would be happy if someone sent them a message. The worst thing that can happen is someone turns you down or never responds. It is nothing personal. As long as you don't come across as being too forward, people are usually nice to you. Give it a try! Some people just weren't taught manners and that is a shame. Thanks for dropping by!
Great hub advising the perils of online dating. There are so many socially challenged people trying to find love online. They don't get that their demeanor online is just as important as offline.
Creepy and aggressive doesn't work in any format.
Very Good. Made me laugh. I am single and a male. I have always had a partner all my life until the last couple of years. So i joined a dating site. And one thing you have said is percent correct for me. I have been on the site for 2 years. I never send smiles, messages etc etc. Because as you sai i don't know how to react. And rather than get it wrong i just look and never interact.
That is sillyas i am a nice guy, i am resonabley clever ,[except when it comes to spelling]. But am just not good at talking by typingparticularly when i think the lady is prettyand i don't want to stuff anything up.
So i just convinse myself i am busy and tell myself i will do something about dating later. I suppose its because i have always meet any partners in person. And we have ended up together just because we meet by chance and got on so well. Dating sites seem so planne serial killers must like that part. I live in New Zealand and am not sure if we have ever had a serial killer. In fack i have just asked some of my workmates, some being fairly older and they have all sia NONZ has never had a serial killer.
Mind you we didn't realey get into online dating sites until it had been in the USA for quite some time. Perhaps we are just a bit slower at starting new things. Perhaps i could be our first serial killer.
21 Amazing Online Dating Statistics - The Good, Bad & Weird ()
And maybe because i make jokes like that it proves i will never do any good at dating. Anyway i enjoyed your hub and i made me laugh. You are funny. Cheers Grant. My only date from an online dating site was with someone who I think might be gay. He made negative comments about my appearance. He also noticed my shoes and makeup and took me to a gay bar. He was also a jerk. We seem to be attracting the same people. So many people tell me success stories, yet I can't seem to find that myself.
I don't know what is going on out there, but there are a lot of weirdos on those sites. Thanks for reading and thanks for the comment! You hit it right on the money! I have the power of pulling gay men from the woodwork and have been in the awkward situation of trying to date gay guys many times.
I'm sure for many people, online dating is perfect. For me, it was just another way to settle. I met my SO through a friend and am very appreciative of how everything fell into place naturally. Ya there are some good guys out there.
I'm very happy with one of them now. Just be careful out there everyone! It sure can be a scary thing sometimes. So far, I've met a couple of decent guys even if it hasn't worked out. I am usually able to weed out the weirdos before dating them, but every now and then one sneaks through.
Thanks for the comment and the concern! Dating online can be a very scary thing. There are all kinds of weirdos out there. Luckily I didn't meet a weirdo and it actually worked out great.
I'm still with him and still happy. Be careful out there everyone though cuz there are a few "special" people who have nothing better to do than mess with people. Oh, Hunter Guy. I guess that is a regional thing. If I find a guy with guns in his photos, he is killing people not animals. I live in Baltimore, so things might be a little different here. I think I might search in a different region so I can see Hunter Guy.
He sounds Thanks for sharing this with me! You forgot one. Hunter Guy. Is that to prove they can bring home the "bacon"?! Are they going to expect me to butcher it?! Turtlewoman, yes, every now and then, there are totally normal guys on these sites. Sometimes they are just shy or they are tired of dating women at bars.
Thanks for the votes! I can't stand the bar photos, but even more than that, what type of message does that send? I hate the Mama's Boys, but I have a harder time sorting through those online. I basically just state in my profile not to approach me if a guy lives with his mom. I guess that weeds them out. Thanks for the vote and for sharing! What a great idea for a hub! Don't know how I never thought of it.
This is all so true. I once got messages by a guy whose main picture was him at bar with his arms around scantily clad women who obviously worked there. Not sure why he thought that would be a good idea for a profile pic!
There's one othe type that I came across that ive got to add: the mamas boy! Hey I recognize the guy with the beard that you posted! We dated for He does look pretty creepy. I'm sure there are a lot of weirdos out there on dating sites. Then there are the shy ones and the really busy professionals Voted up and interesting! Online dating can be fun.
It can also be creepy. I agree there are totally normal people using dating sites or I wouldn't use them. However, there are certain "types" on each site and I find that funny. Sometimes I think it is just the same guy on each site.
Lets not give "online" too bad of a wrap. Online dating won't cure your dating problems, it's just another options to meet people. If all you do is attract "crazy" people "real life" or online That being said, I love online dating and have met some wonderful women and some crazies, just like real life. Yeah, some dudes need to calm down. I am not going out on a date with some random dude too quickly.
Thanks for reading and for the comment! I guess there are some creepy women online, too. I think the chance of meeting a serial killer is close to scoring on the lottery, these guys are very rare although it's probably not very pleasant to actually "score" and meet them as opposed to winning the lottery. I once dated an "overly aggressive lady" I met online drawing a parallel line hereit somewhat shocked me to know she dated over 15 guys in a very short period of time.
No doubt, relationship was discontinued quickly it actually came from her, but I was relieved!
You are very lucky. There are some real creeps out there. Not every guy is creepy though. I am dating someone normal right now. Thanks for reading and posting a comment! I got SO lucky after I started dating again after my divorce. Makes me all the more grateful after reading what I could have met. There are some really crazy dudes using online dating sites. Thanks for reading and posting a comment. I've had some interesting experiences! One of my hubs, about blended families, talks a lot about online dating.

Is dating online weird
Potential Serial Killer On every dating site, there is a super creepy guy lurking about. Huggy Mr.
WORST DATING SITES EVER MADE! - Weird Wide Web
Gamer Guy Gamer Guy has been sitting in the basement and playing video games for too long. Overly Aggressive Guy Unfortunately, many guys that use online dating sites can fall into the Overly Aggressive Guy category. Online Dating Poll Have you ever dated someone you met online? Yes, it went OK. Yes, and I will never do it again! Yes, a lot. Sometimes it is OK Yes, I met my spouse online. No, nothing but creeps online! No, but I might try. See results. These guys are a perfect match for the women you meet online.
In fact from the photos I believe some of them are the woman I've met online. I wanted to see what kind I was. Disappointed really. You need to add one. Clueless, Fairly attractive, keeps in shape, decent job, nice home asks one women out two years ago he met online, she was nice we had a nice dinner at a ridiculously expensive restaurant and seemed to get along ok.
She deleted her online account. I deleted her number then deleted my online account. That is so true. Those instant lover guys are so pathetic What about the "Instant Lovers"? Your hub is quite funny. I like your hub. Thanks for this advice :. Good luck with your online dating. At least they are not all total creeps. But hey, it's about what you're comfortable with.
It may be easier since you can get all the core details onto a profile and see who fits the bill, but then again everyone wants to portray themselves favorably, not always honestly. And there's a lot more wiggle room for creeps lol. I guess it's normal if you don't mind being cautious and weeding through the catfishers. I met my current bf on bookofmatches. I find it weird. Because the connection is based on what you see or read The other person could be joking It seems like a game.
But if both people are serious and having trouble finding love in real life Differnt things work for differnt people. I'm just not into the whole thing. You take the risk of internet dating as you call it, for someone to be not what they really are in real time.
Im guessing you never met this girl and its just been back and forth with email or Im. She could be married or with someone and is sitting behind the computer playing with your emotions.
People do this thinking they have power behind a machine not realizing those they are talking to are actually looking for a relationship. Its called a power trip. I would move on and find someone thats truly interested in you and not into the internet games. Just my opinion.
I don't see what's wrong with it. You see, most guys just are not smooth at all. But we don't like to admit that. The pressure of not having a girl throw a drink in your face for saying something stupid really boosts up confidence Knowing that you won't have to actually chat face to face at 1st is a good feeling and can actually help you get to know them better. Of course there are some strategies that you must acquire, but once you do, it should be cake. I know 3 different couples that found each other online.
There is nothing wrong with it as long as you are safe.
