Internet dating is for weirdos
With online dating, it’s so easy to project all the characteristics you’d like a guy to have onto someone you don’t know very well.I think that’s the problem with a lot of people on .Pete and I had a nice dinner-and-a-movie date, but it was obvious we weren’t a match and that was disappointing.I had spent a few weeks getting to know this guy and I had really thought that we would click in person.When I got bored, I searched for hot guys based on my zip code to see who was out there.
You’re so excited you met someone that you can convince yourself that they’re your dream match. Many of the guys I’ve crushed on in real life probably would not have appealed to me based on their online profiles. I would love to think that there’s someone out there who is a perfect match for me to find online, but after my experiences, I’d prefer to meet someone in person before spending too much time talking to them.
Sure, you can tell if a guy looks cute in a photo, but if there’s no actual connection, that doesn’t matter.
People act like who they want to be online, but then they can’t live up to that in person. When we were talking in person, it was almost like I wish I could retract anything I had ever said to him that might be interpreted as sexual because that just wasn’t how I felt after meeting him.
Of course, he said that everything else he had told me was true and pleaded me to “stay friends” with him, but I had zero interest in speaking to him again.
A lot of times on , it’s easy to write someone off as shallow when they’re not interested in continuing the relationship after discovering the person they’ve been talking to isn’t as attractive as their photos.
