Online Dating – My First Time

Okay, my first online dating. I’ll take a look, but I’m not saying that I’m going to participate in online dating just yet. I’ve heard the success stories and the horror stories about online dating, but I do not have any first hand experience to share with you on the topic.

What I plan to explore the different online dating services available on the web. Brace yourself and buckle your seatbelt, I’m going to try something I saw in a cartoon.

Just kidding. That’s something I like to say to the passengers in my car just before I start to drive. Maybe that’s part of the reason I’m having online dating problems in the first place.

Okay, the first website I discovered says it’s a “free” online dating service. Online, red flags always go up for me when someone says that magic word, “free”. But, let’s take a closer look.

Well, it sounds good. It says it is, “an online dating service that provides a comfortable and intimate environment where you can safely and conveniently search and find your perfect soul mate, while having lots of fun. Thousands of dating ads of singles that are looking for dating romance, intimacy and friendship is available for you to browse through. Your ideal companion might be among them. (site name deleted) brings dating to new frontiers, making impossible, possible!”

I’m having a little trouble with the comfortable and intimate environment thing. They haven’t seen the room my computer sits in. Safe and convenient sounds nice though. But if the website is just a lot of personal ads, can’t I just get something like that at my local news stand or in my local newspaper?

I think I’ll move on and take a look to see if there are online dating services that provide more than dating advice and personal ads.

Hmm, now I find myself on an online dating website that claims to be the biggest online dating service on the web. It has a big picture of Dr. Phil on the front. Almost scared me away, but I’ll tough it out and stay to see what they offer.

Here is what they say, “Looking for more in a relationship and an online dating site? With over 10 years of experience in online dating and relationships, (site name deleted) is the worldwide leader in online dating and relationships. Where else can you find millions of singles looking for love, just like you? We don’t offer just online personals, we are personal in our offerings – to help you find a date, a relationship, a marriage.

Whoa! Marriage? I said I might try online dating. I never said anything about marriage! And now I have the mental image of “millions of singles looking for love”. Wow! Millions. Okay, so they sound big, but what do they actually offer?

Well, first off, they don’t really tell you much about the services they provide. Just a lot of information about the millions who have gotten married through their online dating service. So I bit the bullet and went to the sign up form to learn more.

Now comes the money question. .95 for a month or I can get discounts for longer online dating memberships. Then there is the Dr. Phil MindFindBind program that costs more. Now I’m laughing because since I am checking the online dating service out while typing this article, I evidently have waited too long to make my decision because a popup just came up to offer me assistance with making up my mind.

They do have some free services, but those are basically, create a profile, look at profiles, etc. That’s just like the free services on the first online dating website. You have to pay for the ability to actually respond to any emails sent to you by other members or block members or to see which members have taken a peek at your profile. That all sounds okay, but if you go for the whole Dr. Phil package you get an online dating tutorial, a video about online dating, online dating workshops, and online dating advice. Wow!

Well, as I said, I haven’t decided just yet, so we are going to check out one more online dating website together. Okay, this one is free. They have a patent pending on their matchmaking idea. They calculate your matchability in percentages.

The online dating method they use goes like this, “When you answer a question in our improve matches area we learn: (1) your answer, (2) how you’d like someone else to answer, and (3) how important the question is to you. We collect these three values for all users.

Your match percentage with a given person on (site name deleted), let’s call him b, is based on the values of (1), (2),and (3) for questions you’ve both answered. We’ll call that set S later in this explanation:” Wow! I thought that just regular dating was complicated.

I think I’m going to keep checking out more online dating websites until I find the one that is right for me. So far, the ones we just toured have been too much like personal ads, too expensive, too Dr. Phillish for my tastes, or too complicated. I’m sure though, just like finding the right date, there is an online dating website out there for me and one for you too!

I encourage you to at least try online dating. But don’t stop at the first online dating service you find, just like hopefully you wouldn’t stop at the first singles bar you saw. Check out as many as you need to in order to find the online dating service that is right for you.

Christine Hancock runs “The Personals Network!” There are hundreds of online dating sites out there today, so how do you know which one to choose? That’s why we decided to build Online Dating, your #1 resource for info on the top Dating Sites on the web!

Blind Dating 101 – Advice for Gay Singles Meeting for the First Time

Category: Dating Questionsadmin @ 1:05 pm

by Ed Yourdon

Whether you met through a friend, online or a same-sex dating service like the Nuera Network, meeting someone for the first time on a date can be stressful. What if you aren’t attracted? How should you dress? Where should you go? Staying cool and being yourself (regardless of whether there’s a romantic connection or not) is an absolute must.

Here are a couple additional tips to make your next blind date successful.

Go somewhere you can talk and get to know each other

Choosing an appropriate meeting place can make or break a blind date. Going to a movie or a noisy pub on a blind first date are not optimal because you won’t have much opportunity have start a good conversation and get to know your date. An informal meeting at a quiet coffee shop may be a better option. Then if things go well, turn it up a notch and for your second date and go out for dinner.

Ask questions and listen attentively

When you see your date, you’ll know whether you’re physically attracted or not, but there’s more to it than that. Evaluating whether or not you connect on emotional and intellectual levels and whether or not you share similar interests should be one of the goals of your blind date. Be prepared to ask your date questions about him/herself and show a genuine interest in his/her responses. Also feel free to talk about yourself because your date is trying to find out if you’re a good match for him/her as well. Steer clear of negative topics or mentioning past relationships.

Don’t feel bad if the feelings just aren’t there

Just because you had a good connection online, or someone thinks you and your date are a good match, doesn’t mean that you’re guaranteed to hit it off. You’re the only one who can truly judge whether you and your date are truly compatible. So if you’re not feeling it, don’t feel bad. Just be mature and respectful about it. Besides, gay dating is about meeting new people.

Know what you want and don’t be afraid to express it

When it comes to first dates, not being on the same page as your date can make things very difficult down the road. If you’re looking for something meaningful and long-term, abstaining from sex on the first date and likely the second and third at least is a smart choice. If you find that you and your date are both just looking for some fun, just be sure to play it safe. If you find that you’re not looking for the same things, say thank you for the date and go your separate ways.

Been on many blind dates and still searching for the right person? Try the Nuera Network Palm Springs. It’s a gay matchmaking service for singles in Palm Springs that can help you find “the one.” They interview and assess each and every member thoroughly in person so you can trust that anyone you’re matched with is genuine and your next blind date will likely be more successful.

Online Dating: Meeting for the First Time

It’s fun to date online- you get to imagine what the person you are talking to is like. There may be web cameras and headsets that would lead you to knowing the other person closer but of course, meeting in person is far different from online dating.

Just like the typical setting in our mind, it is really stressful to know that one day, you are going to meet and go out on a date with the person you used to chat with only. How would you be impressive? What would you do so that it will not be your first and last date? Confidence says it all. When that day comes, all you need to have is the reliance in your self and the thought that things will be dealt with naturally. Pretensions are never helpful.

Do not put much pressure on your self and on your date. Treat it as a night of fun no matter what your purpose is- whether you are looking for a night of excitement or hoping to meet your partner for good, you just have to deal with the date with enthusiasm and not many expectations from your date. You just have to enjoy the company of the person with you. It is only the first- so, whatever happens next depends on both of you. 

Confidence could be derived from mind conditioning. When you think that you are a person of confidence, it is surely to exude. Could you imagine these people who arrive in a party with all people turning their head just to have a look at that man or woman? You do not have to be very beautiful or be very sexy just to achieve confidence. When you are confident, everything beautiful and sexy follows. 

Being insecure is never good. When you feel this way, try to divert your attention. Ask your date questions about her. With that, you can somehow evade the situation where you have to answer questions.

 To make a more exciting date and keep your self away from the questions you are not comfortable with, it would be wonderful if you find a similar interest between the two of you and go out. Trying the things or activities together would be very interesting. You could talk about your past experiences about those happenings. 

The top most point to remember is that you are a special person who deserves to be happy. You must never be insecure because we are created with individual strengths, we must flaunt them and be gutsy. With that, we could meet people with self-esteem. 

Who knows? With this confidence, you will finally meet the lifetime partner you have been waiting for.
