A+ R A-


In my 20's, I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride that I will never forget. It all began really, when I was 19 years of age; I had ventured out on my own and decided it would be a grand idea to live in a cramped and dingy cardboard box sized apartment. I was eager and full of hope for whatever was to come my way. By the time I was age 29, the hopes I had were dissipated and much like the aforementioned apartment that I called hope, I was looking to settle down but I knew it would be easier said than done. The prosaic dating scene I had experienced had grown stale, and although I had never considered myself the marrying type, the idea of marriage began to suddenly consume my every thought and daily life.

For months, my best friend of 11 years had begun to bug - or as she would say, "encourage" me -- into joining an online dating service; to say the least, it was the last form of the dating scene I ever wanted to try. Being trapped by the traditions of my family and of course having my own ego be as it was, meeting men face-to-face seemed the much more acceptable form of the dating scene that I was much more adapted to; besides, with online dating, I could only imagine the rejected, weirdos or hermits sitting at their computer in a smoke-filled room, quite possibly the basement of their Mother's homes on the fringe of society who could not get a date otherwise and this idea scared me so much, I vowed I would avoid it at all costs. Yet, here I am with my best friend's relentless attempts to play matchmaker, caving into her pleas and joining an online dating site.

After pouring over the first couple of profiles and sending some e-mails back and forth with a few of what I could consider the dull-less men, I begin to feel dejected; either the online conversation I was engaged with them in was not stimulating enough to hold my attention or they just were not clever enough to be funny. These hand full of men, who I did found slightly interesting began to pressure me right away for an in-person meeting, to which I politely declined; left me feeling a bit unnerved.

Online dating can be very competitive.

So here are a few sample ways for any guy who desires to be a success in meeting women online.

One woman in her profile had written about having a tree fort and about being a tomboy. Along with the basic email I described to you, I wrote her this email:

Subject Line: "I See that you... "

Email Body: "... stopped by my tree fort and didn't even say hi. Since you are an expert tree climber, I expected you to bolt right up. Next time, I'll make it easier for you. I'll wait for you by the front door and help you off with your heels, so we can scurry up that tree and hang out in my fort. David"

What I did in that email was use what she wrote about in her profile and incorporate it into my message to her. That's all I did... I used information from her profile to contact her, but did so using my own edgy and comical style.

See, you've got to flirt with them the entire time to get the ball rolling. Here was that woman's response to the email message above: "Hey sorry about that. I enjoyed your profile. That's a big plus too if you have a tree fort."

So what did I write back to her the next time? I wrote: "With the price of real estate in LA... the tree fort was the best deal in the market. I had a top designer do the interior, but I still had the 'No Girls Allowed!' sign put on the door.:) Do you want to be the first girl to see my newly designed tree fort? David."

What I did with that was to continue the witty, flirtatious banter we had going on. What I also did was give her an action by asking if she wanted to be the first girl to see my newly designed tree fort. This is getting the phone number out of her. 99% of the time they'll say "Absolutely. My number is 310-XXX-XXXX."

So you have this witty banter back and forth. This is how you close a woman who has viewed your profile. You were responsive, but you also called her out on her shit by posing the 'you looked at me but didn't say hi?' question. That is calling her out... it is challenging her.

- Place where you work (you don't want them calling or showing up unannounced)

DON'T wear a complicated outfit. Like with hair, and most other things, men are highly visual creatures. Just as they enjoy imagining what it would be like to run their hands through your hair, they likewise imagine - you guessed it - undressing you. Don't take it the wrong way, it doesn't necessarily mean it's their immediate and only goal, it's just how it works. So if you are wearing a complicated outfit it makes it more difficult for them to imagine what it would be like to undress you. We've all seen how clumsily men handle a simple bra clasp...a complicated, multi-piece outfit is almost more than their imaginations can handle. Keep it simple, DON'T wear an intricate outfit.

Being single and living with genital herpes is not easy. It is tough enough to find the right mate without adding genital herpes to the mix. Because herpes of the genitals infects one in five adults in the United States, it is very common. Herpes is more common than most people think.

There are many herpes relationships where only one person is infected. As long as precautions are taken you have a much slimmer chance of becoming infected if you do not already have it or infecting another person if you are a carrier. Many people that are infected with genital herpes do not even know it. Since they have never had an outbreak or episode they do not think they are infected. That is why genital herpes is infecting so many people. It just jumps from person to person through sexual intercourse infecting millions of unsuspecting people each year worldwide.

Disability dating is very common these days unlike before when the disabled person has a tough time looking for a potential love interest. It was not just the lack of communication and the problem of finding other individuals; the disabled themselves used to feel ashamed of their disability and remained aloof from society at that point of time.

However, times have changed and they have definitely changed for the better. People no longer care what kind of disability one has because what is more important to them is that they find someone compatible. The first step you need to take in order to have a love life is to be comfortable about your disability. Accept yourself with your flaws and disabilities. After all, each and every one of us has flaws. No one is perfect.

Can Dating a Coworker Ever Be Successful?

Over the years, through traveling and interaction with foreign women I've realized that there are many differences in the way they act, think, and carry themselves. Foreign women aren't as guarded, they're more friendly for the most part, are more prone to be family oriented. In this article and video I list some of the differences I've noticed about foreign women.


Bigger is not necessarily better.

Remember, quality online dating sites are not necessarily gigantic. Yes, sites like Match, eHarmony, True, etc, have a lot of users and therefore a lot of people to meet, but that doesn't mean that they are necessarily good. It varies site-to-site, but in my experience I have found that mid-sized sites generally are better.

Smaller is not necessarily better, either!

This goes both ways. You don't want to join a dating site that has about 100 people, do you? What would be the point of that?

Local dating sites are rarely good.

Despite what many people think, large nation-wide dating services are almost always better than small local sites. Plus, the big sites have options to localize anyways, so why bother with the small ones?

Any site that makes you pay upfront is not worth it.
