Internet dating is for weirdos

Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.

Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... what I think is freaky is being hit on by boys of 18-22 when I am in my mid-50s.

When I got bored, I searched for hot guys based on my zip code to see who was out there.

First, I found Hunter*, a model-hot guy with shaggy hair and washboard abs.

We can all live our own version of Sex and the City! Profile attempt #1 You will write at least one of the following on your profile: ‘I’m new to this, so here goes…’; ‘I like cuddling up on the sofa and watching a DVD’; ‘My friends say I’m…’ or ‘My friends and family are important to me.’ Then you’ll delete those and stick with: ‘Will fill this bit in later…’ before skipping to ‘Upload your photos’. We can only guess they’re hoping that you’re as creepy as them. Now to write back (with something witty, clever but nonchalant, obvs) and secure number four… The first date So you’ve actually done what you set out to do – you’re going on a real-life date!

and the incessant TV commercials for Match.com, it feels like the Internet is the place tons of people are meeting potential dates.

to me she has just acted rather strangely..i were going to pretend to be someone else...i'd have chosen a better looking face!

so yes, in answer to your OP...people on here can indeed be many things, not least of which is crazy!

But you’re a sensible, street-wise, adult human being with common sense.

And sometimes the reject-ee will get mad, whether you’ve met them or not.
