I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.
I did meet my girlfriend online, but after a year of painful struggle, meaning hardly any dates despite being educated, employed, and reasonably attractive.
And if it hasn’t happened to you yet, you can say “What’s wrong with these terrible people on these awful sites?
They move on with their lives, while everyone else complains about the sites and the awful people on the sites.
I don’t deny ANYBODY the negative experiences that they’ve had.
So it is acceptable for you to initiate with a shy guy. The problem with male shyness is that it wears off in specific situations.
A shy man may never become courageous enough to approach women in general, but he can eventually grow comfortable with a girlfriend or wife.
Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.
My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing.If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female's ignorance of the male mindset.At most, it is a reliable source of advice for women who want to improve their chances with the opposite sex.Here is what I wrote back to her: First of all, I’ve had EVERY bad dating experience you can possibly imagine.I’ve had women write me nasty emails, insult me over the phone, ignore my phone calls, stand me up, refuse to thank me for dinner, refuse to reciprocate in bed… And yet I still run around as this super dating advocate, because I believe it is the best prospect to find someone special.I just urge people to find some healthier perspective on the whole thing.
