    I understand that Romi.

    I really do. My main concern is not to get involved with someone else that may be ready for something but you can't move forward because you haven't dealt with your past feelings.

    No matter if they are perfeect for you, you can't put your heart into something you care not ready for regardless.

    I do understand where you are coming from and nor do I assume everyone is looking for a mate. I just want you all to be careful.


    Baby steps....

    totally appreciate it, dave.

    i've decided to look at match.com for now. i haven't renewed my subscription from the last time i went on, i'm just looking. for me, it's been healthy just to see that there are other options. it's been tough for me to meet people because i hang around a lot of guys and i go to a lot of sports bars. i LOVE sports bars, but when you're a girl with a group of guys, it's intimidating for other guys to even approach you. at least i've been told that.

    i definitely don't feel ready for a serious relationship, so i've decided to take advice given to me here and 'look' with no expectations.

    i realized that i am much happier just enjoying where i am, rather than when i start thinking about whether or not i'll actually meet someone. i realized that i WILL meet someone when the time is right, but there's no harm in being a little more available.

    thank you for the advice, superdave. it made me feel a billion times better, actually. i don't HAVE to be full on in the dating scene. there's nothing wrong with me for just hanging around.

    I am NEVER here to discourage. (I think you konw that) I am here to be supportive whatever you decide and though I may disagree, I care enough to give you my opinion. If you agree, then fine but if you don't that is fine too.

    I am only giving the advice I do because I am a rare breed of man that is secure enough to care "out loud". My advice forces you to look inside yourself and not just the out.


    Relationship attraction is only skin deep. It's what's under the hood that KEEPS someone coming back. You can be stunning on the outside but if your dark and brooding on the inside, nothing will come of it.

    Take care and thank you.

    Yes! I totally agree. It's the inside what counts. Looks are important but just in the beginning but in time what's left it's the heart and mind of the person...
    Sorry for my bad english but it's not my native lenguaje:o

    Sorry to ressurect an old thread but had to add my tuppence worth!

    I joined Match.com and a few other dating sites last year....and havent heard a thing from anyone!

    I have pictures up, I like to think my profile is humorous, and any emails I have sent have been light hearted...yet I never get a reply!

    One thing I have found with internet dating over here is that there are very few "attractive" women on it in Scotland. The majority just do nothing for me, and as a result I guess dont do anything for the rest of the guys on the site...so we are all trying to get the attention of the same attractive girls!

    So...its a big red FAIL for internet dating for me!

    Male:female ratio is ridiculously skewed on internet dating sites. Women tend to get way more messages than men I've found.

    Feeling down? Think about and be grateful for what you do have, not about what you don't have.
