A look back on dating (Or my how bad my past could have been...)

For those of you who do not know, Michael & I met on line... (I even had other long-term relationships that were also founded online & quite a few 1 date here, 2 dates there situations - some good, some bad, & some indifferent.)

Thakfully this never happened to me. Dating story. But I did have a guy who I had 1 horrible date with try again later - I guess he forgot we already tried once...

I just had to share it!

Unbelievable. I thought it was a joke, but I guess this guy was really serious. Another reminder why I am happily single!

Oh dear oh dear!
This evening I have had a visit from one of my dearest friends and her DH. They met online, and they are celebrating their first anniversary this August :-) I was her maid of honor. I think I have to make her a little something to celebrate the day.

That is just too much! What a dweeb.

I have a friend in the LA area, in fact the one I'm going to visit next week, who is on J-date. She's had some doozies, and some nice guys out of it, and also the worst relationship in her entire life. I think it's hard to meet people with whom one is compatible, on or off line!

My husband and I met online as well. We really hit it off, have been living together since February when we bought a house and then got married in June after getting engaged in December. Yes, we did it fast but I wouldn't have had it any other way. I agree about having some doozies but it was worth it to get what I got in the end.

Oh my that does sound scary. Hopefully guys like that will learn that through the magic of the internet their antics are very very public.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog.

Had a quick look through your blog and i can't believe you travelled on the Great Ocean Road. I live only 1-2 hours away from there.

By the way, did you like Cairns when you were there. We went there 2 years ago on a family holiday and we loved it. We're hoping to go again one day.

I recently published an article on the complexities of dating in general and blind dating and online dating in particular – here is a quote from it, in case you are interested:

How to create your profile?
1. Make a realistic profile. Try to show your best qualities without lying about something you are not. Try to find out what exactly appreciate the other at you;
2. List the most important features you expect your partner to have, but don’t exaggerate, just stick to the real life;
3. Learn to recognize a cheater from a sincere person by reading that person’s profile or by asking a set of questions that would reveal that person’s ego;
4. Start by chatting with more than one person;
5. Try to communicate with that person in an open manner;
6. Study the other’s profiles to help your create a more attractive profile for yourself;
7. Save yourself if necessary and don’t let these kind of virtual reality seize you completely. Give yourself more options in your life and consider virtual reality as one of the many, and not the only way.
