Oh I agree.

Anyone I would hook up with would strictly be by reference from one of my friends on-line. I want frickin references from people I know, otherwise I'd probably end up with Cybil :eek:

I haven't, but I know a lovely girl [spitting image of Sandra Bullock] who's been married 15+ years to someone she met over telnet [yes that long ago], she had a boyfriend, then started chatting with this guy half a continent away, next thing you know she's dumped the BF and asking us [GF and I] to carpool with her to Penn State. Guess it was love at first type.

After a bad breakup from a 3 year relationship with my college sweetheart, I dated probably around 10 girls over a period of about 5 years, each for varying lengths of time. One of them I really liked and had hoped for a future with, but she turned out to have some psychological issues (not hyperbole) that gave her (in her mind) reason not to get too serious. After that I played it casual. None of the girls who followed were really seriously my type relationship wise but were within my "Would You" range so I did. One of them in particular became quite a nice booty call for several years until I met the woman who would be my wife. The girl I had been serious about at first actually turned out to be a pretty good booty call herself toward the end of my bachelorhood.

I would say It was a good way for someone who's not a bar fly to meet a lot of girls, but after a few relationships I realized that it's not a great way (at least for me) to find someone to spend my life with (if that's what you're after).

After my experience, I don't find it at all strange or coincident that I met my wife through a mutual friend who knew both of us personally, and not online.

And thus the OP requires better definition. The title "hooked up" can imply meeting someone this way, or meeting someone on a website specifically designed for dating, or meeting someone in a very obviously-superficial way (like on a porn site, LOL).

Here's the thing about the Intrawebz: chat rooms, or posting boards, are great ways to meet people because you can interact with them without physicality getting in the way. You will talk to and share things with people whom you have no idea what they look like, and you might get to know and like people without knowing if they're foxes or uglies or whatever. And there are more boundaries than just looks (such as ethnicity, income, or just general shyness and inability to interact with strangers).

As much as we all like to harp on the sexuality, when it comes to a LTR you do need to actually have things in common, like the person's personality, have the ability to talk to them, and all that other Oxygen Network crap. :) Just think about this board, even if you just want to talk about male-to-male (no homo): how many of you guys have met in person after getting to know each other, and thought, "Cool dude," and have never reflected on whether or not this is the type of person you would've interacted with in real life unless it was chasing each other with baseball bats at a traffic altercation?

Long story short, if you spend the time to get to know someone online, you can have an actual "real life" stable relationship with them. If you don't spend the time, or are looking for shallow or one-and-done, you'll get just that. It is what you make of it. If you treat it like a singles bar, you'll get that result; if you treat it like a simple way to interact with people (replacing real-world sites like work, gym, whatever) then you'll get more stable long-term results.

Just wondering who here has meet someone on-line or has friends/family that have. I'm not talking about the one night stand shit, but serious relationship stuff.


Anyway just was kind of curious about it, so lets hear the horror stories. :eek:

ROFL


I married the last woman I met online 5 years ago. We met after my accident while I was re-cuping in the hospital surfing the web on a lap top.
we chatted from Sept-May, spoke on the ph from then to Nov when we finally met face to face after a year of growing a relationship through words and conversations.
I can honestly say,not only is she my wife, she's also my best friend.



As a long haul trucker, oh yeah, few good ones, and a few ahhh. NASTY!!
2 that come to mind

The one in Hartford CT:
She was a "singer", always had "gig's" on the weekend. Played herself off to be either Darby Mills of the Head Pins, or Litta Ford in leather.
Oh she was a singer alright, a ****en OPRA sing in NYC.
As a trucker I was a bit heaver than I am now, from lack of physical working conditions. I was 6'1, 265....She had a good 6 inches and 200lbs on me.
The supper was great, even though I told her I would stab her with my fork if she stuck her foot in my cerotch while I was eating again.
Explaning that I had just run NON-STOP from L.A over thre last 2 days, hiow about I go take a quick shower while she got "ready"
Thank god she didn't suggest joining me.
I literally dove into a dumpster out her bathroom window with the shower running ( first floor), no hollywood BS, it ****en hurt....


SoCali was 25yrs old, 5'5, 125lbs, Blond, blue eyes.
When I pulled up to her trailer 5000 miles later she was 52, 152, about the right hight, blond from a bottle, and the bluest eyes I had ever seen on a cougar :D

**A funny side note...This cougar sent me an e-post card. I looked at it, thinking it was her, which is why I took that run to Cali. ( she forgot to photoshop out the web address.)
It wasn't till a bit later I saw the half hidden web address, checked out the site, found a chat room, and met the woman I would marry 4 years later.

** second side note, the dumpster story is another one I met on that site prior to me getting to know the Mrs.

2) Doctor in Canada who came from very wealthy family and expected to live a certain $$$ lifestyle. She was clearly looking for sugar daddy.

3) California Blond who moved to Montana..... and dumped me for a fire fighter

So.... 100s of women, of which 98% aren't worth the time. Figuratively, out of 200 women across your screen, only 4 would be worth the time?

I'm pretty sure I'd have just as good of odds at the bars... with less hassle...

Not into the casual thing, as working in the Hotel/tourism biz I get all of that I want or need. :D

I have a couple that I'm talking to, one who I have been talking to for over a year is in Kentucky & planning to come out the end of the month.

The other one, is actually someone I went to HS with, but never really knew then. Funny how we had so much in common then & now.

I wouldn't describe it as lazy, but I will say it's a great way to get to know each other. One of my ex's & I worked together but we sat on opposites sides of the office. We used to chat it up via AIM at work. Got to know each other, when I left for tour came back & asked her out only because I knew her & got to know her.

Shit, if there was no communication via the interwebs, I would have never had that chance. It's a useful tool & certainly better then the 80s & 90s call chat lines lol.

Again, herein lies the difference between using dating sites--or using the Internet as a dating site--and just trying to meet people and be social. In my experience, if you go "looking" it's hard to find. If you're not "looking" and just being social, you tend to find it. Relationships are weird. When you're in one, you can never imagine not being in one, and when you're not in one you can never imagine being in one again. But every time I've "given up looking" and just decided to enjoy life, I immediately met someone. I've had three long-term relationships and in none of them was I actually "looking", I just talked to them and it happened.

And I'm no male model. So, the moral of the story is: if you hook them with conversation, you can sneak the fastball of ugliness by them. :D

I met this one awhile back, she came to visit for a week then went home.
But if all goes to plan she is moving up here in about 2-3 weeks.:thumb:

I was on OK Cupid for a short time. It was there that I found one girl that I pretty much figured was out of my league. We started talking music-- old blues and reggae, mostly-- and she was hooked. We went on a couple dates over three months. She blew me off three times. Near the end, I did something I've never done before: I told her she's going to meet with me, or I wasn't giving her the time of day. Apparently that did something, as we ended up hooking up that night, and we haven't been apart since. Getting married in May 2012, three and a half years into our relationship.

Internet dating is a false stigma. Those who would deny it to force themselves to luck into some ideal partnership found at a bar are only cheating themselves. I have no idea why there is ANY reluctance. The fiance and I basically got to screen each other for two months before meeting for a date. We quickly realized compatibility (she was probably the third person I'd dated since being online), and really hashed out philosophies and approaches in life, and realized our compatibility. I wouldn't trade her for anyone. Except maybe Scarlett Johannsenn. But she's got Ryan Reynolds. Fuck that guy :D

Normally, I'd tell you to shut the f*** up and stop being such a goddamn chauvinist. But in this case, you're right. She's told me numerous times over our relationship how my ultimatum had been incredibly sexy, and sealed the deal for her.

But, I will tell you, there's a gigantic difference between telling a girl you suspect likes you to buck up... and telling some random girl that "I'm going to **** you, and that's that". Just a little wisdom.

If I ever did start dating again, that's how I'd do it.

I've come to this conclusion as well. Although, my opinion is based on experience with it.

I am not there looking for sex, and most guys are. If a guys actually is serious, then he:

1. Should wear a shirt in his profile picture.
2. Not make his "icebreaker" questions to be about sex.
3. Learn the English language, or at least how to spell and use punctuation.

When I see any of these, I pass right over him. We're obviously looking for different types of relationships, and I want someone who I think at least made it out of grammar school.

Yes, but the people on dating sites are trying to impress people. A few typos or commonly misspelled words is one thing, but a lack of basic punctuation and very basic spelling is quite another.

Why not?

1) Internet dating is for people who are or have been unable to form lasting relationships in real life.

More flawed than myself is not something I'd be looking for in my next relationship.

2) Most people lie.
In a date setting people lie even more than normal.
Most people lie even more than normal on teh innerwhebs.
When sex is involved EVERYONE lies.

Still not seeing teh upside here.

3) If I'm going to pay for sex (most sites charge) I'll go to Vegas and get it done right and proper...

.Could not disagree more. This is a ridiculous comment. I fail to see how that has anything to do with finding someone online. Makes absolutely no sense. I'm not looking for a 'hook up', either. I dont 'date' people online. I chat with them, and try to get a feel for them. Yes, a lot of people are dishonest. Set up a meeting and go from there.

I dont drink or go to bars, so that medium is out of the question.

I dont care to date someone I work with.

Based on quite a bit of research, actually. It's being seen that those who participate in online dating sites are, by and large, very sociable people, who are discerning and methodical when determining who would be a good partner.

Further, those who meet online generally have a much greater chance of maintaining the relationship beyond a first, or even second, date:

The women on those dating sites are crafty. They will go over a 1,000 photos with a jeweler's loop to find the 2 that don't show their double chin and post those. Then you show up and it's the worst feeling knowing you now have to hang out with someone you have no attraction to and fake your way through it and then bail at the first opportunity. Not a fun Friday night.
