Re: Online dating experiences?

I don't know casually getting a drink with a girl you met online and casually talking to a girl at a bar or the mall or wherever seem to be no different to me. I mean even if you don't use an online dating site and say you meet a girl at the supermarket and decide to go out for a drink you know you're going to Google her. I've done that for most of the girls I use to date including my current girlfriend just so you kind of know what you're getting into. Then you casually bring one of her interests up like "So I saw the new Wes Anderson movie..." and then she's like "I love Wes Anderson how was it?" etc.

In reality I think there may be just as many people that meet in real life that get into fucked up relationships as online it's just more sensational when they meet online. I mean Jodi Arias met her boyfriend who she murdered on a business trip. I'm sure OJ didn't meet Nicole over Okcupid and Andrew Luster Max Factor's heir met women at social events then raped him and that dude was a multimillionaire he could've just got prostitutes.

It's people like you who give dating a terrible reputation.

I'm not cynical enough to believe that every woman is terrible, but I'm also cautious. The last woman I truly loved didn't understand I was trying to protect her, and we messed each other up really bad. It's been 7 years, and I don't want to go through that again.

I have a mutual agreement with Pain: we stay away from each other. I don't get the Oklahoma comment, since I'm from Texas.

Treating women like property is despicable, and all who do so should be ashamed of themselves.

You drew a map? Why? Couldn't use Mapquest with your piece of shit Lexmark printer?

I think there's a fine line between casually starting a conversation and looking like a weirdo. Bars are socially acceptable to hit on women at, a mall is not (unless you're a teenager --- pump the brakes there pedophiles).

Online dating is far easier than casually walking up to someone and start playing twenty questions. You have a grasp for what the other's hobbies, interests, and favorite things are before making an approach rather than wasting your time with someone who might be the exact opposite. I've only used specific online dating (OKC) during a brief stint I was single and just graduated from college. I got laid, but nothing serious ever came from any of the encounters.

Obviously during my college years when I wasn't in a relationship, both Facebook (which was exclusive to college students only for my freshman and sophomore years) and MySpace were in their prime thus making it far easier to pick up women.

The women I dated after my brief stint on OKC were people I already knew (high school, college, etc) or friend of a friend.

Re: Online dating experiences?

From my experience in a lot of places if you go to the mall during the day you will mostly see 3 kinds of people (Senior citizens,strippers and teenagers) The strippers usually have some miles on them so you would have to be a bit of a dunce to ever mix one up with a teenager and get yourself into Chris Hansons hot seat. If you ever want to date a stripper hitting a mall during the day is probably the best time cause their guard is down and that is when they are at their most friendly and approachable.

You're obviously not from California where our malls are basically all outside and women seem to want to be looked at and talked to. In fact just last week I was at the Apple Store Pasadena and a cute girl started talking to me (no she didn't work there). I was asking about something at the genius bar and she was right next to me with her lap top and chimed in and said "if you need that upgrade I have it, we can exchange numbers and I can let you use it". The weirdest request was a girl asking me to help her put a headband on straight at Urban Outfitters then asking me what I thought of it. But its Cali, girls are a different breed here.

This is like something out of the Twilight Zone and would make a killer scene.

Yeah, that Apple Store is popping there. Granted, that's technically not at the mall, but that Old Town area is ripe with womens.

Dammit. I'm so jealous of attractive guys. This just doesn't happen to guys that look like me.

It would take being attractive, with a large dong. If you have that, you can be the biggest piece of shit in the world and score women (or that special woman who doesn't mind that she's with an asshole, because that asshole is nice to have sex with).

I think you might have confidence issues or maybe just live in a bad area. I see not super attractive dudes with cute girls in LA all the time.

When you click on a thread expecting to talk about online dating experiences, and instead get shit about religion (which wasn't even provoked), it gets tiresome.

How old are you? Are you in your 40's and hitting on hot 20 year olds? Of course you're not going to get any action.

Louie's point in that bit was that once you're middle age you (probably) are mature and financially stable and women your age will only care about that.

"Nobody likes me..."

Getting women is about confidence. That's basically it. Having a sense of humor doesn't hurt.

29. I don't think it's a confidence thing. If I really wanted someone, I'm sure I could get someone.

Anyways, my original point was that I've never been in a position where a girl just hits on me at a mall (like Penguin Joe wrote). That's a thing that happens to skinny dudes. If you're attractive, you can be a broke, aimless 20-something crackhead and beautiful women will hit on you.

So I joked about it by posting the Louis CK video. It applies to my exact situation and exactly what I was thinking.

Re: Online dating experiences?

In high school and college, money is not a big factor for obvious reasons. But after that, things change. If you don't have a job, your prospects are mediocre at best, even if you're a good-looking guy.

My guess is that the average working guy's prospects are best when he's in his 30s or early 40s. Women who aren't married begin to get desperate because their reproductive window is closing.

Also you live in Phoenix, AZ which is like the meth capitol of America so I'm sure there are all those skinny meth head dudes you have to compete with for pussy.

Yeah I miss this. It used to be so easy to find hookups.

As far as dating, an online match never worked out for me, but they always put out.
