Dating sites

Do dating sites actually work? Are the majority of the people on there lying about everything or are there some honest ones on there? I've read that pretty much everyone lies about something on dating sites and just wondering if it's true.

Re: Dating sites

i think they should be checked out because everyone's online - i haven't done it...don't know if i ever will....i'd rather go out and take a night class on cooking...or some drawing at the art league on mondays'
when i get to the point of having the motivation and all the 'work' is finally over ie; kids dr appts, mine, etc etc for new diagnoses, his school etc etc

Re: Dating sites

Pretty much everyone lies about something in person, too; why would an online dating site be any different? It's just easier to obscure certain facts online at first because you do lack the immediate person-to-person connection. But those falsities, like the ones people tell in person, can only last for so long.

I personally have never used a dating site, but I know many people who have, and they've met some great people that way. It's not "weird" to meet people online anymore, it's pretty common nowadays. I think only very old or very judgmental people would look at you funny if you said you met a dating partner online. And who really cares what they think anyway?

You will for sure find some crazy people on online dating sites, but you might also meet someone perfect for you, too. So if you're looking to date, might as well give it a shot, right?

Re: Dating sites

Typical - I'm doubting myself again about whether I'll ever find anyone or whether I'm a disgusting expletive who'll die alone

Re: Dating sites

I dont think an ordinary dating site would work well for me. Too many people would be incompatible for me and I would need the option to selects on MBTI profiles.

Re: Dating sites

I've been doing some online dating for the past little while. I don't think it's great for ADHD. But there aren't many better ways to meet people.

Re: Dating sites

OKC has a pretty great range of different people.
I haven't talked to many people on there, but those I have, all seemed rather friendly.
I think the matching system is to thank for the majority of that. You can easily sift through to the intelligent ones.

Re: Dating sites

I know a few people who use Ok Cupid and I haven't heard too many complaints about the site or even the people who use it..

I guess everyone lies or withholds information to impress or make themselves look more attractive.

I mean I once saw a guy's profile where he states he's tan with an athletic body when you can clearly see in his pics that he's not tanned and he's just slim not athletic...this is pretty much an example of someone trying to impress but it's a stupid way to do it I think..

Re: Dating sites

There was a time in the years before I came to ADDF and met my gf that I was toying with the idea of actually going on one of those sites and just for the heck of it and out of sheer spite and frustration describe myself in the worst possible terms.
I guess just to be able to say 'I told you so' in case someone had been stupid enough to respond.

Of course, now that I know the real reason for my incompatibility I realise just how dumb that idea would have been. I had just been looking in all the wrong places.

Re: Dating sites

I was on Match.com and eHarmony several years ago and had good experiences- especially eHarmony. I know several couples who met online and married. I went to one of the weddings. The two men I met on eHarmony who I really hit off with went on to meet their wives online after we stopped dating!

There are jerks everywhere and people lie in person all the time so don't let that stop you. Once I get myself put back together, I would like to try it again.

Re: Dating sites

My confidence took a nasty knock today because I had to go out on the bus and someone was making nasty comments about me the whole way back and was kicking the back of the chair to the music he was playing loudly on his headphones or whatever

Apparently the best thing that can be said about me is that I've got 2 legs and 2 arms - everything bad about me I've got to censor because what the person said on the bus wouldn't be allowed to be posted The only postable thing is that I was contaminating the bus
