There is no right woman, its just a myth. There are women whom you find sexually attractive and there are others whom you dont. Rest is, you just harness them and they walk the way you want them to. Thats why women always want the man to make the first move.
have you ever actually kissed a girl ?

Wasted, the ultimate twoddler, may indeed be much nicer and friendlier in real life.
I was going to say, I doubt very much....

Nah, whats the fun in kissing??! Okay maybe before, if she insists.

But I like your way of thinking, you must be the sweetest guy around.

Re: Best Dating Websites

So how's it going lady?

Since I'm overly bored these days, I gave it a second try.
For two days I've been signed in, sent 4 guys message, only one has replied.
A side from that only one guy has sent me message to say that he thought my username was cool. I thanked him and he replied welcome and I've heard nothing more.

This is less % of approches than at the bars
I thought this would be ideal way to catch the guys that are perhaps a little bit on the shy side but super sweet when the shy part is over. But gosh, no!

I wouldn't trust a pretty girl sending me a message. Long story short, we hear a story too good to be true... it ain't.

How's your "marketing?" The photos and the profile text make ALL the difference in the initial find/attact stage. During my time on SF, I noticed quite a few women who were probably OK but did a very poor job of marketing themselves.

Only a suggestion; I'm not implying that you are one of them...

Conversely there are also quite a few who market themselves better than they actually are.

I checked it out... (1) Lots of pictures, few words, and (2) you can pay to show up higher in search results..

It's not a <cough> "dating" website

Re: Best Dating Websites

Swissfriends has free access this weekend. The offer ends at 10 pm tonight so if you'd like to take a peek, today would be a good day to do it.

And to all those heavy-hearts, sending you love for tomorrow.

Re: Best Dating Websites

The Swissfriends offer has been extended so if you're still unsure about investing money into a dating site, it might be worthwhile to take a stab at the trial offer.

This last week has been a very positive week for me on the site. I've had some quite lovely contacts.

Unless you're interested in leering teenage boys and old men's willies, I'd stay away from Chat Roulette... lets just say, i've seen enough to put me off most things on there, and i was only online for a short while.

On the internet dating side of things, I would recommend it - thats how my husband and I met. In the time before meeting him, I had a few interesting and funny dates with all sorts of men, only one was totally off-putting. The best thing about it is, you can be as choosy as you want and you can get to know a fair amount about them (if they're sincere and honest, which admittedly not all are) all before meeting them.

Good luck and have fun with it!
My BIL had similar experiences (except the boys and willies), met a lot of very nice women, had some very pleasant dinners, realized (from both sides) that it wasn't realistic to continue and went on to the next. If I weren't happily married,I can see that this is one of the few alternatives open to middle-aged people, and would use it without expectations.
