I've been on OLD for 6 months now and I really need to take a break.

The guys I've met really weren't guys that I was thrilled about--it was like someone I'd pass time with until someone better came along--maybe I was giving off that vibe unconsciously, since I was nice to them.

Hi;

They are probably idiots those guys you met so their loss. It will take a special strong man to realize he wants a woman like you ...I found that its just not that easy to find someone and it is def. like a job..

In saying that I have grown a pretty thick skin to OLD and the dating scene. I realize I am who I am with all of the good and bad things about myself..

The strangest thing happened to me yesterday.. There must be a full moon because I had one guy whom I was friends with from OLD

In the few days that I haven't sent any messages on OLD, I am feeling better.

Can I ask you something?

I have read lots of your posts, you are a really tactful and insightful person. I always enjoy reading your posts.

If I remember correctly, you did meet your current gf/wife online?

I am getting discouraged and I need to hear a success story. Do you mind

Hi Music,

I hear you. I can relate. Even though I have guys emailing me, I have not met anyone who interest me yet. Some guys talks about a second date and does follow through.

Dating can be depressing sometimes.

Take a break and come back energised.

It gets old being rejected through online dating...but you have to remember it's nothing personal because they haven't met you yet.

I remember doing the same thing at one point. I was on yahoo dating, I don't even think that exists anymore. Nothing happened there, I did not meet a single person and so I took a break for a while and had success when I returned and went on Match.I also got frustrated on Match for a while as well so I understand completely, you exhaust all the good possibilities and are left with the new joiners.
