Are you tired dating online or maybe offline? Share ur thoughts about this.

**Searching for love and a relationship i tried online dating this time. I've met few guys online over the last two years, some are worth talkin to and some are just a piece of crap. Had failed relationships too and it seems nothing is workin right. And it comes to a point that hey im tired of this. And it reminded me of the phrase 'the more you look/search for love, the more it will not come'. Hmmm so i decided to rest my heart for a while.

But there came Joe unexpectedly, not expecting that i could fall for him but i did. It just started with a simple msg, then phonecall etc., developed into friendship and blossomed into love...So i said wow i'm not really tired yet after all...:P

**Good day everyone and i'm lookin for your answers..

I'm so tired of dating and I've only been dating for a month. lol. I had a few relationships that have failed. I have finally come to a point in my life that I know what kind of man I want. The hard part is finding that person. I tried online dating after a friend recommended it. I have met a few people online but so far no one promising. I think I'm going to stop looking soon. Just let everything be. If someone comes into my life, great. If not, oh well. I guess I'm tired of introducing myself and screening for the right person.

Glad to hear you found someone. There's hope yet.

JEN, I have to say....I am so not tired of dating. Not yet anyways. Way too many men and way to much fun in it. Tee heee. Let me stop before I say too much and let all my secrets out. Later girl! Good question. Im sure alot of us are tired as hell! Get some rest is all I can tell you all and go at again the next day.

Im not ready to settle, so I suppose that is why I am not tired yet. giggles.

LOL definitely! At least I was, until I met my Mr. Right. I had virtually given up on finding anyone while I was in grad school. I knew I wasn't going to be there long and didn't want to make career/moving decisions based on a relationship. I figured I'd wait until I moved to Vancouver and meet some nice Canadian boy. :) Well, just when I wasn't interested in meeting anyone, right before I moved, I met this sailor and fell hard. So I guess the best things happen when you aren't looking for them.

Hi Jen,

At this point I have to say yes, I am getting tired of dating. Between October 2001 and April 2003 I had been so tired of dating that I didn't go out on any dates (October 2001 is when I broke up with the boyfriend from hell and I needed a break!).

Anyway since April I've dated 4 guys (plus one who stood me up). The first one even seemed to have real potential - we dated for 6 weeks and I was really starting to fall for him when he broke it off (turns out I was Ms. Rebound). Since then I've been on dates with 3 others guys, two of which stopped seeing me, and the last one who I realized I wasn't into, just the same time he wanted to dump me so it was mutual!

I took a "dating personality" test recently and according to it, only 5% of men find my type of personality attractive - which might explain my problem! On top of that, there seems to only be 6% of men that have the kind of personality I'm attracted to!

Oh well, maybe I'll just become the little old lady on the corner with 100 cats! (I already have 2). Teehee! ;o)
