You know, I've always feared that by attempting to talk to women and see if I could ask them out, I'd only be seen as some stalker or a sex predator but if you're gonna advertise yourself on dating websites and you're looking for a partner of whatever gender, clearly there's no stalking there if all you're gonna do is try and talk to them.I've often felt the same thing, especially when there's no easy opening to spark up a conversation without sounding awkward or like a total creep. XD
That's been another problem of mine. I want to comment on what I like about them but it can feel like I'm overdoing it. I suppose sticking to the one thing or two that catches my attention about them helps. If they reply back, great! Try developing that conversation and then lead onto other things.
A recent strong statement to myself is if I don't ask, I simply don't get. I just gotta make these attempts and see if they would be willing to see me. Sure, despite finding them on DATING SITES, I'm not expecting to go on a date straight away but we have to get to know each other first.It's the quickest way to get yourself out there, and hey, at least you know everyone on there is looking for a date and doesn't already have a damn boyfriend. (Or at least you hope they don't.) :P
It would be shit of them to be doing it when they're already with someone, unless things weren't working out for them. The only thing is that I'm not the only one who's looking for a date out there so I do have competition... This is really sounding more and more like the job market.
What I'd like to do first is talk to them a bit and see how things progress. Generally I'd like to see that we can speak to each other on Facebook for general contacts and Skype to have a video chat somewhere down the line. Video chat is easily the best way to prove that they're legit.Yeah, strangely enough, I always thought talking online (even just using IM, or something) served as a good way to "break the ice" with people, albeit on a pretty superficial level. Though I suppose when you're talking about a potential date, some kind of video chat would be required, as you said.
Well with an IM contact you can pretend to be anyone so something like Facebook is far more genuine and video chat is the final thing to make yourself sure.
So yeah, online dating shouldn't be all that bad. I may not have much experience with it right now but it can't be all that bad. If I keep looking out, who knows what an amazing individual I can find!Good luck, and feel free to let us know how your endeavors turn out. :)
So far not so grand. They say one of things is to mention on your profile is hopes and aspiration but I'm such a talentless guy that I really can't say much about that. Maybe if I was in a job, I could easily say that and put that down but right now I have nothing. I know not every woman is going to care about that kind of thing but it seems most do and if I don't say much about that, it feels like I'm stuck in the mud. Fair enough, they would like to know that they are going out with a guy who has solid future plans but not everyone is fortunate enough to be in employment or studying.
I've not been doing this for so long so maybe I just need to give it time. Another potential problem is the distance. I can understand a local distance is preferrable but some just need to look beyond their region and go for someone who lives around 100 miles away or so. If my sister has done that to meet with her now fiance and if my friend's brother is going to marry someone in America, many others can too go for long distance relationships just to find THE one. I know not everyone will be up for it but if you don't have much luck with your local area, you should at least consider looking beyond the surroundings of your area. I will only go as far as within Great Britain, although I would much rather live elsewhere.
She seems to want to steal them and then go back home. D:Well, that's just shallow. :P
Eh, I think I'm used to women wanting to steal things from me. My ex had her fun with stealing my hair bobbles as she thought I looked a lot better with my hair down but at times I really needed to tie my hair back but then she'll just take them. Mind you, she still has some of my bobbles and claims I'll get them back at some point.
It's funny how the whole thing with my hair down started off at a party we were both at but she was too shy to say it to my face so she got a friend of hers to say it to me instead. I took the compliment for granted since anything people like about me I would like to keep up to make both ends happy. Because of that, whenever she is around I must have my hair down, otherwise I'm getting hell from her. However, since we're not together anymore, she doesn't quite have the full authority over my hair, even though this thing traits back to when she was in her previous relationship before going out with me.
Well, I may end up making my activity minimal but I'll have to check here every so often.It's always a good place to chat every once in a while, even if you aren't super active overall.
I agree with that. Like I said, even if I do make a lot of cutbacks on the site, I'm still going to be around for this thread, unless everyone I know here is gone.
I keep meaning to retire them at milestones but it's a matter of if I feel like keeping it going now.How many are you still depositing for these days? You could always just focus on depositing for the couple that are near and dear to you. ;)
I'm now only depositing for the one guy. All my alts have been put to a halt for at least two weeks now. I know I could try and put them on retirement counts but I don't even want to bother with that. With how I'm feeling about Newgrounds nowadays, I can see that one day I will give depositing on my main account a rest once and for all. This isn't something I can keep up with forever.
