Internet Dating Sucks.

So pathetic old me has been dreaming about finding a boyfriend for, what? 11+ years? But, seriously, who doesn't want to fall in love and live happily ever after. Right?

Well, here has been my luck with men: My heart was totally crushed in junior high school, when the cutest boy in school stopped me in the library and told me he didn't want anything to do with me. Ouch. Why not just scar me for life? Since then, I've had several crushes that have gone absolutely no where, either because I've been deemed "unapproachable" or just plain "unworthy." Needless to say, I've become a shy, self conscious, single woman.

Moved to a new state to go to college--tons of cute guys--all already in relationships. I see a hot guy in the movies and notice him holding hands with the guy beside him. Seriously, I'm sick of guessing at who is single, who is straight, who is sincerely interested. I gave up.

I have truly become a cynical person when it comes to dating; I'm angry with most of the male population, and I'm angry with myself for being so damn shy and untrusting. So, despite the fact I harassed my mother for trying a dating website, I found myself signing up for the same site.

So far, I've ironically found more fights than flirts on this. I've been deemed a racist, for not finding black men particularly attractive. I've been stalked by an old geezer, or two, who, for the record, could not spell to save their lives. The creeps sure know how to find me, and none of the "cute" guys find me attractive, or interesting enough to talk to--and the guys who ARE interested are upset because I refuse to give out my cell phone number, or send them more pictures of myself. So I give up!

Internet dating sucks, and I will proudly live out the rest of my days as a strong, single, woman... alone, on the top of a mountain, with my 7 cats.

The End.

  1. You and I have a lot in common. After 70 first dates, I can tell you - I'm disgusted and disappointed with the single male population.

    During the time that I was dating, I was also running around the country doing booksignings and lectures. Thanks to a successful book, I appeared on PBS History Detectives and A&E's Biography and many more.

    And yet NONE OF THAT MATTERED to the many men that I dated because I wasn't a petite blonde who giggled and acted foolish.

    It didn't matter that I was smart, articulate, capable, successful, etc. I did eventually find someone - a real treasure - but I've had it with single men. They have NO ONE but themselves to blame for their miserable lonely lives.

  3. I can relate also. I have had messages from quite a few men, before it has a chance to go anywhere, as in meeting for coffee, they just disappear. So what could be full of promise, is no longer and they don't even meet me first to be able to see if I'm 'worth' getting to know. I also live in New Zealand so there are fewer potential mates than would be found in bigger countries. This gig is not for the faint-hearted.
