Internet Dating Service: Do they work

You're browsing: Online Dating Tips / Dating / Internet Dating Service: Do they work

I had always thought that the very idea of using a dating Internet service was pathetic. How desperate was I? How did it come to this? In college, I had been very popular with the ladies. Not a single semester would go by where I would not have at least three or four girlfriends. I dated recreationally, playing the field as it were. I could turn on the charm at will. I never had any trouble getting girls.

So far, I have pretty mixed feelings about the dating Internet service. More people contacted me that I would have thought. It really is very easy to get casual dates, but the problem is that people who use the dating Internet service are socially awkward. Many of them are uneasy about meeting in the first place, and when they do everything is pretty tense. Maybe it’s just me. I was never all that ease with the dating Internet services myself. Nonetheless, I think I will stick around for awhile. The dating Internet service is just about all I’ve got going on anyway. Still, I don’t think I’m going to hold my breath and wait for results. I’m skeptical to say the least.

With the sprung up of dating services on the Internet, there’s now simply too many choices, we are overwhelmn with too much choice. Now I was using a dating Internet service, and I felt pathetic about it. You see, it’d been a hard several months. I had just broken up with my girlfriend of three years. I had spent a good deal of time sitting around and moping, feeling bad for myself. Now, I thought I was ready to move on. The problem was, I just couldn’t seem to meet anyone. I’d go to bars and feel very awkward. All the social ease and old charm was gone. I decided to try an Internet dating service as a last resort.

Now I’m no yokel. I have high speed Internet connection, I check my e-mail several times a week, and in general I’m pretty well-connected. Just the same, however, I’ve never been able to get used to the idea of using the Internet as a primary means of communication. You see, I’m not even very comfortable over the phone. I certainly wasn’t comfortable with putting my picture up on the dating Internet services website, along with a whole host of personal profile information. It seemed like a bad idea to me, but I decided that I have nothing to lose. I made my dating Internet service post and waited for results.
