The art of messaging on dating sites

I guess I am lucky in the sense that I don’t have to be the first one to send messages on dating sites because I always have a few in my inbox.

Is there such thing as a perfect first date?

I came across this hangout called “Perfect First Date” by TrippAdvice.com. It is quite interesting to hear things about dating from a man’s prospective but a few things made me cringe. So I thought I’d share my point of view based on some of my dating experiences.

Of first messages, profiles and hooking up

I like filling out profiles. They are fun. I change my twitter bio a few dozen times a week until I am satisfied with it. I change my AV and background pics in the same frequency for the same reason. So when I joined online dating sites a couple of years ago, I did the same thing. I changed my profile when I felt like. I noticed also, each time I change my profile, I got more or less messages and “likes”, depending how drunk I was at the time I crafted my profile. Yes. I very rarely fill out my profile or start a new profile while sober. Don’t ask.

Dating: Happiness Is Not Just An Illusion…

Once a week, a friend of mine and I have decided to meet up and go for a walk alongside the beach. It’s a good way to keep in touch and catch up on gossip, a refreshing change to texting or Facebooking…

Online Dating or Conventional Dating?

I often get the "I'm surprised that someone like you is single". Well things happen, and then when I mention I'm a member of a million and one dating sites, people think I'm crazy, that I’m making a huge mistake and wasting my time. So how is conventional dating better than online dating? A few

I already have a pussy, I don’t need another.

I am surrounded by men. As in, I talk to men a lot. There’s H who I see everyday, and there’s my gay BFF who I talk to (almost) all day everyday and the occasional other men. I mostly talk to them about anything and everything that comes to mind. Most of the time of course I am just complaining to them about their kind. Most of the time, none of these men I talk to can provide me with any answers. They are just as baffled by other men’s behaviours. So, it is not me. I am not crazy. Men are stupid.

Men are…

A few months ago, a tall, blonde, blue-eyed person sent me a message. In it, he told me his name, where he was from and why he was in my state. He also included his phone number, which I ignored. At the very end of his message, he added, “I am 6 ft 1.” I thought, okay, he read my profile in it’s entirety. I always make it a point to spell out which physical attributes I look for in a person. I used to tell my friends I would only date tall people, preferably 6 ft or over. They were to introduce me to such persons if they found any. Of course, they did not. They were better at finding me jobs than finding me men.

Online Dating: how long should you be chatting before meeting?

As a rule of thumb, after 7-8 messages you should know if there is a chance that you may be compatible, and then you should meet just to confirm and see how things go. I am not against long distance relationships, I have previously been in one that lasted for over 2 years. We lived in different countries and would only get to see each other every 3 months. If I had to do it again I would. I have absolutely no regrets, we had an awesome time, but that’s a story for another time.
