Hi all! I didn't see this thread before I posted a new one, don't know how I was that blind! I'm Jennifer, almost 27, and I live in Saint Cloud, FL. I'm looking for fellow WDW lover friends, or hey Prince Charming would be nice too! Anyone live in the area?

Yup. haha. Just type it into the search field at the top of the page and hit enter. If their profile doesn't come up they obviously gave you an email that isn't associated with their fb page or thy just plain don't have one,

Maybe I'm missing something in the profile settings. But why would someone do this? There were probably 7 or 8 pictures. Why bother if you're going to hide it?
If its hidden its because they don't want someone finding out they are on a dating site. I met two people through match.com. One was married still and not an honest person at all. The other I have been with for more than a year. He is awesome and wonderful. My rule of thumb was if the profile seems too good to be true, it probably is. Walk away from that one.

Just because I feel like beating a dead horse...I agree with everybody else...if he's hiding his profile run!! LOL

I really haven't had much luck with the online dating thing...other than the guy I mentioned previously. And even that is iffy. We talk on the phone and text but I've yet to meet him in person. He gave me some crap about how busy it's been at work (ummm...you don't work weekends so ?????) and dealing with getting ready to close on a house he's buying. I don't care if his Daddy does work for Disney...at some point we need to meet face-to-face or I'm done! LOL

I seem to only get replies from guys that are old enough to be my dad. I dont understand it. And i agree the amount of time it takes to weed through all the crazies is enough to make you crazy. Like i said to my best friend last night i hope my prince charming has a GPS so he can find me when im not in WDW. By the way prince if you are reading this ill be there starting Sept 29th lol

okay so....after at least a dozen emails back and forth and against the good advice of everyone here I decided to meet this guy for dinner. He is an orthodontic lab tech like me only he has his own business with 8 employees and I do the work in two orthodontist's offices just for them. He was a really sweet guy and we had alot of other things in common. He also paid for dinner. I had a really nice time and am planning to go see his lab next week. So could I still possibly be fooled? Possibly but no harm done so far and we'll see how it goes. Not rushing into anything.

Oh and it is a legit business. I checked. And he knows what he's talking about as far as the work goes. As far as hiding the profile, he says he has friends and his employees bugging him all the time about going on match and doesn't want them to see it. Sounded reasonable enough. I know even though I was separated for 4 years and the divorce papers have been filed and I certainly have every right to see anyone I want, I didn't want to have dinner close to home and wind up being seen by some gossipy neighbors.

Sounds good so far! Let us know how things progress!

I'm definitely nervous about going back online, but maybe I'll try something different next time. I did eHarmony before, but I'm thinking about Match. I wonder if the Crazy Quotient is higher on Match than it is on eHarmony? I've heard plenty of crazy Match stories! I should say that eHarmony wasn't bad, I think I just wasn't feeling it at the time.

I don't know if any one is better than the other. When I tried to sign up at eHarmony I filled out their questionnaire and was a little disappointed when at the end it said because I checked currently separated I couldn't join. Then I went back after signing the divorce papers and tried again and now they want the number from the final divorce which I have not gotten yet. So maybe they are a little more selective but we all know people just lie so who knows. Guess it's just up to us to weed out the crazies.
