I give up!

After all of the agonizing over whether to respond to the guy who asked for the full body picture, I did, he wrote back with his own pic and then today wrote that he's getting serious with someone else and has to "bow out of this". I'm not sure I believe him. The other guy I was corresponding with who seemed like a really good guy has also disappeared on me...after 2 weeks of messages, he just stopped writing. No one else on either of the sites I'm using is either interesting to me or has responded to my mail. I'm about to give up on online dating and should probably accept that I'm going to be alone for a long time again. My last relationship was 6 months long and ended in February, but that was the first I'd had in about 3 years. I'm so afraid that'll happen again since I haven't found any other ways to meet new men around here. I think this is my day to be depressed!

Montgomery County does have a website. The cities of Gaithersburg and Rockville offer some classes too. I'm taking belly dancing through the city of G-burg, but there really aren't any other courses of interest that would actually have men in them.

I know Montgomery County offers some adult classes but I'm not sure where to find more info on them (I got a brochure last year), but I'm sure there's a website. I've gotten to the point where I'm not really looking for someone right now, but on occasion possibilities pop up, usually through other friends. Good luck!

Don't give up hope. And don't think that you're going to be alone for a long time. Although many of us want a significant other to go through life with, I find that its may friends and family who help me through my tough days and make me feel like I'm not alone. You always have us!

I may have a new lead for meeting men. I vented to the correct guy friend who has decided he's going to find me a few dates among the guys he works with. We'll see how that goes. I'm not sure I trust his judgement.

Yeah, but it's a crap shoot. i honestly think that if a guy is too much of a p(*(&sy to ask a girl out in "real" life than it's not going to be any different in cyber life. It's just a different method to get to the same place, that's what I think. For as many as you write to, maybe 10% will have something come out of it. Like job searching in the new economy!

For the guy who asked me for coffee, I'll give him 'til Monday, If he doesn't apolize for getting back to me sooner than he gets to go out with Mr.Delete button.

Losers are everywhere. Believe me, I'm friends w/ some of these online losers, just friends, but they like the ego boost and then they get bored.

Sounds like you understand why I've found so few men of interest on the dating web sites. I've seen a lot of lines like that too. Most of the rest might as well say "I'm desperate and will stalk you."

I had thought about trying to take a class at the USDA, but didn't find anything of interest there either. I met most of my friends through the Portuguese classes I took there a few years ago, so it's a great way to meet people if you have the interest and the money. I just don't know what else I'd like to take. I'm hoping Montgomery County might offer some cheaper classes that might also draw in some interesting people. I can't come up with any other new ways to meet people.

I do it in a nice way and explain my rationale in it. I'm much more of an "in-person" type of gal and like to meet men outside my circle, usual places. the guys usually agree w/ me. I'll try to take it out, see what happens. Honestly, you should see the lines of some of the ads of guys in the DC area.

Eg: "if you not a hottie, don't even bother", yes very attractive.
