The dating sites are full of surprises. You can find, if you’re lucky, your soul mate, but you can also find many people who subscribe to those sites just because they want to get laid.
Around me, I know a few examples of couples who started dating after chatting on these sites. I’m among them. All of them told me they weren’t looking for a serious relationship while subscribing, they were just there for curiosity, for meeting other people and see where it can go. “I suscribe to one of those sites with many of my single friends, and I started chatting with a guy who has many common points with me. We only met three months after our virtual meeting and we decided to give it a go” I.,32, explained. She’s getting married with the man she met virtually in four months, BTW.
Some women told me that they haven’t met the man of their dreams on those dating sites, but they had the occasion to meet and date great guys. “I dated three guys thanks to those sites. Each time, our relationship lasted over a year. I had a great time with them, but I knew they weren’t the one, and they felt the same way about me. I stayed friend with them, though”S., 34, told me.
And then, there are the ones who chat on the net just to get laid. A friend of mine told me about the story of her cousin. “He’s got a real problem with sex. For him, women are just a mean to appease his needs. When he discovered those dating sites, he was so happy. He has found a lot of women who accepted to sleep with him. Oh, and he’s not difficult, he chooses every woman who accepts to get laid” she explained.
Of course, if you’re really looking for the true love on these sites, chances are you could be really disappointed by who you find. That’s why people go more and more consulting again those good old matrimonial agencies.
By disappointment, this reminds me of an episode with the sperm donor of my company (yes, Vanessa, you know who I’m talking about). When he was single, and still living with his mommy, he used to surf a lot on the dating sites during work (everyone knew about it) . He subscribed on many of them and created different profiles. I heard that one woman just ran away when she saw him approaching on her first date with him. How I understand her … But, curiously, he managed to score with several of his preys. Perhaps his dates were just looking for sex, or even worse, his sperm (Eewwwww)?
So, for the woman who really looks for love, and finds a guy like that (or my friend’s cousin) , she surely can be disgusted by the dating sites.
