Which is fine if that's what you're looking for. I would rather just get to know someone by talking, which is why the online dating thing seemed appealing to me. I met my ex online, but it wasn't online dating. She grew to like me through mutual interests and she pursued me. It ended up being the best relationship I ever had. I don't understand it. The loneliness is the worst part. Yes the loneliness is awful. It's what I cry over. I hate it. It's though I need the void to be filled but like johnny has said we should not need a replacement partner to fill the void and loneliness so it is clear we both need to do some more work on our confidence etc.
I am going to continue to try Internet dating. I have met 7 men by talking to them over many weeks on dating sites, have met with them and established that they lie to impress, have used old photos, have gained significant weight, or have talked about their exes non stop.
Although you may talk to women for weeks on a dating site, do not expect them to be as they portray As I have unfortunately found out. I only meet people for 2 hours on first date but the one I met last night required a bail out after 20 minutes. I went to use the toilet and phoned my friend to request that she phoned me in 5 mins to pretend her car had broken down and for me to come and get her. So she did and I promptly apologised and left.
Why did I do this Because I sat there listening to some 35 year old chav telling me all about being done for street racing, that his dad owned a 3. On and on.
I thought do you know what mate stuff this! I had been speaking to him daily for 4 weeks. Communication will not mean you will meet a genuine honest person. Where are the good ones gone!! I don't know about the loneliness stuff. I keep busy, work a regular 40 hour week, work out and walk my dog when I get home, and try to do stuff with friends when they aren't at a bar or with their families.
I drink, but right now I don't. Part of my process of healing has been to put all of my efforts in eating 'clean' and working out to get those emotions out, so I gave up alcohol. Not hard for me, but I'm doing it anyways. I just miss having a woman around, so is that loneliness?
You go from having that female touch whenever you want it to not at all. I don't need it -- I want it. Is that wrong? That said, it needs to be from someone I want to be with. I worked out my issues a long time ago, and while there's always room for personal growth, I'm at a place where I'm ready for the next relationship. I miss having a man around so I suppose its a void in my life that I want filled. You have a void you miss a womans touch. I go to bed on my own and I miss cuddling up with a man and having him to rely on.
I think your self esteem issues are better then mine and I need to improve myself to you level. I note you go to the gym and you say it gets your emotions out I plan to join a gym. Previously whenever I have been single I get into a rebound or relationship straight away hence the reason none of them worked. Like you I think its right that we don't just settle for anyone as it won't last and we will just end up hurting the person we got involved with when we didn't really want them.
I will stick to my standards as you should as like the guru's have said perseverance is the key. I certainly understand the loneliness all too well. After my lovely husband committed suicide, the loneliness was terrifying and wound up in a rebound relationship with a man who basically had no respect for women.
Thank goodness I got out of that disaster, but I suppose you might say I went from the frying pan into the fire because my next relationship was with someone I believed was my soul mate but who wound up totally undermining my self-esteem by being psychologically abusive. I sometimes felt like a character in FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, as this man got me to engage in unspeakable behaviors all in the name of love.
The problem is that he could never tell me he loved me, and, once I realized this, and once I found out how often he had cheated on me, I was done and, as the song title goes, "Alone Again, Naturally. I joined those dating sites where I met my husband. I look forward to his coming home every evening, and it's wonderful not to have to deal with the loneliness. As I've said many times before, I still sometimes think of my ex as my soul mate, but how could a man who never loved me be considered my soul mate?
It was just a figment of my imagination. I do believe, however, that women who have been psychologically, emotionally or physically abused by men have to do some serious work in order to find a man who isn't abusive.
Maybe because my late husband was a good, loving man, I later realized what I didn't want and I met my husband. Being good-looking can be a liability to some extent, but, on the other hand, a good-looking woman has more of a chance of meeting a variety of men than a more average-looking woman.
I had the misfortune of being called "sexy" and this caused a lot of men to come on to me for the wrong reasons. Having a sweet voice and disposition didn't help either, as I was seen as an easy mark. I really wasn't an easy mark at all, except for my ex, the one I thought was my soul mate. It took me about two years to meet my husband, but I never lost hope. If you keep the faith and if you try to project confidence, you will eventually meet someone who is suitable for you.
Remember that relationships are a compromise, but no one should have to settle for less than a loving one. The gym in my town just opened today, but I have a brand new rowing machine I use every morning, I do free weights after work, and then usually walk the dog every night. Winter is coming though, so the gym opening is a welcome thing. I have found that regular exercise keeps my mind fairly occupied, and when I'm thinking during it, it helps me fuel what I'm doing. It's all for me though, so that's the good thing.
I also just feel better and more energetic. Coupling it with a good diet and plenty of sleep and it puts me in a good place. Yep, the desire for a woman around is highly appealing. It can't just be anyone, so I will stay patient and as positive as I can. The online dating scene has gotten me a bit down, so I question if that's where I should be.
You'll be okay! Try out the gym. Do you know any other females who you could go along with as a guest to see if it's something that will give you that boost it gives me? Hi foxielady thanks for the response. Persevere I will. And you are right I have been abused in the past by physically and emotionally and I need to do a lot more work. I seem to get more attention off 20 - 30 year old though on these dating sites.
Hey ho shall I have me a toy boy I am going to join the gym as dm has and it has helped his emotions. Work on self esteem, confidence is on the agenda and I need to sit and think why I chose bad men.
I feel I have a history of picking any good looking man that flatters me and offers attention as I have always been vulnerable and low whenever I have started a new relationship. I have mates who can go to the gym with me but I am confident to go on my own. Put it this way me and my ex split up for 5 weeks and I cancelled his plane ticket and jetted to Dubai, Taiwan, phillipeans on my own with the children for one month.
My other choice was to cancel No way! I am strong career wise, etc so will hit the gym readily on my own. I knew I should have joined one as people said it helps self esteem etc. I need to kick my butt for not doing it sooner. Foxie -- I'm glad things worked out for you! So do you think loneliness is okay or am I even using the right word based on what I'm looking for? I mean, I'm not depressed or anything at all. I accept what happened to me.
I get sad sometimes and I also get angry about it, but none the less, it happened, I can't control it, and I am moving on. What I want and what I have to offer has not changed with my ex gone. I certainly don't want to end up alone, a small fear at the moment , but I am okay not having what I desire for now.
I just want to position myself to meet eligible women. I wouldn't call myself a homebody, but I don't find much interest in being out in bars. I live in a small town 30 minutes from a major city. My responsibilities limit some of my free time.
haha, it didn't mean you couldn't go on your own! I don't know how it works across the pond, but here we have to sign year contracts to join a gym. So that's a big commitment if you're not sure you're going to like it, you know? If one of your friends has a membership they can usually bring a guest so you can see if you like it and if it's the right gym for you. Mine has free weights, machines, bikes, stair climbers, ellipticals, and tanning beds. Hi I used to go to the gym so yeah will like it.
Here in the uk its a 12 month membership but some give free trials. I know a lovely one by me nice and secluded that I will enquire about. When u day you get sad I do but women handle it differently and my sadness results in tears. I get angry as well as I can honestly say I did nothing to deserve the In-humane treatment off the ex.
You should not have a fear you will be lonely not forever. It will probably take me and you time as we have a standard in a person whom we expect to meet. I am after a life time partner and they must have qualities to be such. Take care as its 1. Even though I'm happily married now, I am going to the gym regularly because I have a minor weight problem. Going to the gym helps me to keep in better shape and it also improves my outlook.
The gym I go to has a lot of friendly people but it's more of a family-oriented gym, and people who go there are serious about their workouts. I suppose it might be possible to meet someone at a gym, if you're looking. When I was younger, I met an interesting man at a gym I used to belong to in Manhattan. Yet, working out is a good way to improve oneself and I've heard that exercise is a good way to induce positive endorphins feel-good substances in the brain.
I always feel better after going to the gym because I look better. I also am trying to eat better, as I need to lose about 10 pounds. Awesome, Foxie! You'll do fine hitting your goals in the gym, and good on you for doing it! I agree that it feels good and really helps with the mental aspect of healing. The physical benefits are just a great by product.
I don't know how I'd be doing 2 months out from a break up from my 3 year relationship without it. I sent a message to a woman 3 years my junior, who had a relatively blank profile aside from the basic stats, photos, and a few things she's interested in. I told her I messaged her honestly because she's tall 6 feet -- we have height in common!
She seemed to get a kick out of that and responded the next day! The correspondence has gone pretty well so far, and I'm admittedly pretty excited about the prospects with this woman. I believe I am ready for a new relationship already, mostly because of how I dealt with my last break up.
I recognized that the break up had absolutely nothing to do with me, in that I had any control over a break up occurring. I was a good man to her and if there were issues she was having she wasn't able to verbalize to me or even hint that there was a problem. Therefore, it's truly not my problem. There's no telling whether this will develop into anything, but I'm darn well gonna enjoy learning about this new woman and letting her get to know me.
Regardless of how it all shakes out, things truly are getting better! Hearing it from people two months ago is one thing. Now I'm realizing it, and it's because I chose a healthy path of healing. Lucky you. Still no luck with me but then I do not go out much as the low life ex hardly has the kids so stay at home a lot. No luck on dating websites either Too many frogs.
Let me know how it goes and good luck. Well, my excitement got the better of me. She started off good, but got incredibly boring really quickly. I tried to keep the conversation going, but she was just too dull, so I moved on.
No luck since, but I haven't really been looking much after that. My new gym has been open for a couple weeks now, so that's been my home away from home.
Lots of attractive ladies there, but I'm not gonna be one of 'those' guys Just being the familiar, friendly face. R elationship T alk. Online Dating Depressing for Most Men? By DM , 8 years ago on Dating. I'm curious about the experiences from both sexes.

Bumble at first glance seems like a great advancement in the dating app space by giving women the power to make the first move and control who messages them.
One of the biggest complaints women have from dating apps in general is the volume, crudeness and unwanted messages they receive and Bumble seemed to address that by preventing men from messaging women unless the woman messaged them first. Problem solved! Not so much. A lot of women are not comfortable making the first move on dating apps. Dating apps require some confidence, vulnerability and ability to put yourself out there for the world in order to have a shot at success.
Being a passenger in your dating life is no way to live. Guys on Bumble can just sit by and wait for women to approach them giving them the advantage. They no longer have to come up with creative introductory lines and can collect likes, exert minimal effort and focus on matches they are most interested in. Many of the women on Bumble are chasing the same, few men on the app and men know this, and love this.
Every app has its pros and cons but I hear a lot about Bumble when it comes to lack of success. Men complain that they get no to few matches and that women rarely message them first.
In both cases, there are unmet expectations that a match is more than what it is. Remember, women get other matches and they might be talking to others already or have already focused on someone else.
Take the time to get to know them. Some guys volume swipe right for efficiency. Others tend to focus on girls they are more interested in first. Use dating apps as a tool to meet others casually, not as a validation tool.

Who you spend your life with is arguably the most important decision in your life so treat it that way. With that said, most people get frustrated because they lack self-awareness, realistic expectations, ability to screen profiles, ability to read people and a good strategy that encompasses app choice, timing of messages, appearance, wardrobe, smiles, body language, hobbies, interests, education, career, health etc.
Take a break and get help. I have seen way too many people struggle with dating apps for years before they give up or finally realize they need help. Breaks should last at least 3 months so one can exercise, eat well, build friendships, develop new hobbies and interests, explore the world around them, update their wardrobe, work on conversation skills, save money, identify good date spots and get new photos, update their profile and start from scratch with a profile reset.

I joined a couple online dating sites about a month ago, several weeks after my breakup. My initial intention was to get an idea of what's out there.
I'm a busy professional with my own home, so free time is somewhat limited. I know what I want from a relationship, so if something panned out, I wouldn't be rushing. What I discovered is that, at least for me, online dating is pretty depressing for men. I tend to date tall, relatively physically fit brunettes. That's just my type when it comes to the superficial stuff.
Obviously there needs to be an immense amount of substance beneath the surface, but I'm not going to date someone who doesn't spend any time taking care of herself. No, I don't have unreasonable expectations on that side of things.
I don't like wafer thin models. I'm 6 and a half feet tall, relatively good looking and in relatively good shape.
The things women say they want, I have most of. I'm not at all full of myself and have average confidence enough to keep me on an even keel. Since online dating starts as basically a stats thing, we're nearly all judged on those things first. I have messaged what I would consider some pretty average looking women, but who seem to have substance, and I don't get a single response.
I have received several messages from very heavyset women. I don't care if that's how you want to live your life, but I'm not going to date you. I had one woman I found attractive e-mail me, but it became very obvious she had a lot of issues. In short, wading into the online dating world has left me a bit depressed about finding someone new. I'm starting to think getting out and volunteering is going to be my best bet of meeting someone. Online dating really seems like a mega ego boost for women, many of whom are fishing in deeper waters than they could on an even playing field.
I hear all of these success stories, but everyone I talk to is striking out just like me. online dating is a good metaphor for the current state society finds itself in regarding inter-gender relationships. women want an idealized mate and they want it NOW without really willing to contribute anything worthy to society or the men in their lives.
most of the women you will find on those sites are done riding the caraousel and see the wall looming in the horizon and are now looking for a provider type of man to settle down with. its an ingenious mating strategy. sleep with the bad boys during their prime and snag a provider once they start losing their beauty. if you'd like to know more, there are many resources out there that explain this sexual revolution in clear detail. just google the manosphere and prepare to take a wild ride down the rabbit hole.
I guess learning right away that online dating is probably a waste of time for a guy like myself. I'm not a male model and I'm also not so desperate that I'm going to settle for a woman who doesn't seem to care at all about her health. I thought at first that it would be a good way to learn a lot about someone by getting past the traditional dating game. I met my ex of 3 years online, but it wasn't online dating. We met on a site where we had a mutual interest and she took a liking to my views and opinions.
The feeling was mutual, and she contacted. We talked for many months, exchanged photos, video chat, and the rest is history. It was the best 3 years I ever had.
After the breakup, these sites have led me to feeling worse about finding someone. Admittedly, I haven't got out to meet women in the flesh, but it sounds like I'm going to have to make time for it. I'd love to get the female perspective here and here from men who met normal, well adjusted women on these sites. asking women for advice on women is like asking a trout the best way to catch him and his buddies.
you have to get out there, meet and juggle multiple women until you get a better feel for the ones you have natural chemistry with. think of it as being a kid and being told that santa clause does not exist. Just because you know the truth now doesn't mean you cant enjoy and partake in the festivities.
You wanted a woman's perspective Here goes. I am on 3 dating websites and like you I do not think I will get anywhere. All the men are not my type or after one thing! My friend has been stung 4 times meeting men who allegedly want a relationship only for her to sleep with them after a few months and she never sees them again. Like you I have standards in who I would like to meet but its a waste if time Sites appear to be full of liars, cheats, etc.
from a woman's point of view its as though only scraps and left overs are on these sites who have been damaged by their exes in the past. Some turn out to be quite perverted or are married. Been on the sues for 3 months now and starting to look at deactivating my account. A lot depends on which dating site you are frequenting. I have a lot of experience with dating sites, and I can tell you that some dating sites are worse than others.
From a woman's standpoint, I can tell you that I was once on five different dating sites at the same time. I was 60 when I started looking for a suitable man. I am 5'8" and reasonably nice-looking with a few extra pounds but by no means heavy. I describe myself as "curvy. Like you, I'm not full of myself, but I know that I have a lot to offer the right guy, and I refused to settle for just anybody. Like you, for a while, I started questioning my own attractiveness, as I was approached by the homeliest men, and I happen to prefer tall men with light hair and light eyes.
They don't have to have a perfect physique, but they need to be somewhat in shape. Many of the guys who approached me were unkempt, grossly overweight or extremely illiterate.
For a while, I was going to give up on online dating, but, because I led a busy life, I kept going out on dates, and I had to kiss a number of frogs before finding my "prince", my current husband.
He is tall with light hair and blue eyes. He's physically fit and nice-looking. More importantly, we have similar interests and we get along very well. We got engaged a few months after meeting. We still have "issues", but, all things considered, I think I did the right thing. Some people get discouraged by Internet dating and have more luck finding people in person.
Every time I did that and went to a bar, I found married men or younger men looking for a quick hookup. Online dating allowed me to screen men and weed out those who were undesirable to me. I don't think women or men have an advantage. It all depends on the site.
On SeniorFriendFinder, women seem to have the advantage. Same on AdultFriendFinder. However, on Match. com, there are so many gorgeous women that I had too much competition.
I'm glad you brought up this subject. I think Internet dating can be depressing for members of both sexes, unless you find someone with whom you click. Just remember. You only need to find one person! Foxy lady that is my experience.
I like men over 6ft and this is stated on my dating page. I am 5ft 7 and get messaged by men whom are 5ft 6. I don't like bald men either but still get bombarded. They r all over weight, unkempt taking no consideration towards their appearance. They also lie quite frequently in their aim to impress. Men seem to be all frogs and I feel I will never find my prince. I don't want a player and the site is full if them Playing n cheating is why my exes and I broke up.
Men on the site also lie about their jobs whereas I don't I am highly intelligent and have a high flying job. Foxy lady I really hope to meet my prince but I have been single now for 5 months and have literally given up hope. U r right about match.
com too much competition and u have to work hard, plenty of fish It's as above and zoosk is just a waste of time as well. Bars and clubs
