We have to want to do it for ourselves!
Yah... I know... it's just one of those things where I'm not happy unless I'm in a relationship. I dunno... it's one of those things where it's weird to talk about in a public forum like this...

I hate online dating sites. People are always so fake and "perfect" on there, but in real life they are the opposite of what they say. Is it bad that I've given up finding someone at the ripe old age of 27?

I just don't understand how over 95% of guys on there (at least, the ones the system tries to match me with) have self-identified their body-type as "athletic"...

I don't think I've given up yet, myself... I mean, I do believe that there is someone, somewhere, for me...

I can't stand "athletic" guys anyhow so I guess there would be nobody on the site worth checking into for me.

Hmmm, it was probably around 27 when I gave up, so it's not all that bad! LoL

yes it's true you forget about it for a week but then the depressing reality hits you like a brick once you return.

Well, I gave up at 20...so no. In fact, I give you props for lasting that long!!

I know what you mean. I've been looking out my window at the rain and I think about how nice it'd be to have someone to cuddle with...then I think about how everyone on the internet is usually hyping themselves up to be so much more than they are. Think about it: without face to face contact you can completely reinvent yourself inside and out. Then when it comes time to meet, they realize, "Oh, ****, I'm totally not like this superhunkymancandy that I described myself to be" and they flake. Don't worry about it, WDW cures all...for a while.

This is one of the greatest jokes about a gay hookup site I've heard in a while.

What bothers me so much about the online sites I've been on is the inability to just talk and make friends. They have it in their profile that they're looking for friends but it's BS. Everyone's looking for something. I miss the days back when I chatted on IRC and we'd have channel meets where we'd all just get together and hang out.

YUP. It's pretty disappointing. I still hang out on IRC... but there's really no one for me to hang out with since it's our private irc server and no one's local. And we don't have any gay channels or anything.

IRC is such a throwback! I don't exactly remember when I used it, but I never remembered being unhappy with it because everyone was so nice there. What happened to the internet?
