So I tried it out, met plenty of freaks and weirdos and am thankful that I didn't end up in a hole in someones basement with a bucket of lotion, but then I ended up finding my now bf of 2 years I agree it's like applying for a job haha but see he made the cut and so did I. I liked everything I read on his page and just hoped he wasn't lying, and sure enough it was all true and tada! Happiness.

I wrote way too much just now my bad

Long story short. I tried online dating once, met the girl online and chatted for a week or two, then we agreed to meet for happy hour downtown after work. Hung out with her for about an hour and knew she was not the girl for me, but since I was already out I ended up going to a different bar for another drink after we parted ways. At the second bar I sat down next to my now current girlfriend of 2 years, and hit it off. So, technically, online dating is the reason I'm with my current girlfriend, I just didn't meet her online .

P.S. the whole "You never meet quality women in bars" thing is total BS. Though we were both having casual after work drinks at a classy place, not getting blasted at a dive bar so YMMV.

In fact I met my best riding buddy on this very forum. We sent a few PMs and hooked up to ride. We even carpooled. He came and picked me up from my house before we even met.

Neither of us ended up raped or in a ditch...however neither of came across as super creepy and looking for "bunnies" or whatever. It was like " Neither of us have jobs...Big Bear on a weekday? Ok lets go"

I hid my creepy until the three hour car ride lol....
Mixie, did I come across as super creepy to you?

Both of us are in our 20's, professional, intermediate/advanced riders, 420 friendly, enjoy good beer, and good food. House is very nice, has plenty of rooms so you can have your space, and a hot tub to party/relax in. If your interested but don't feel like posting on this thread PM me.

if you don't understand why the bolded phrases come across as creepy then I am not gonna be able to help you.

For me personally? My reaction to the above is "um...well Im kinda average looking and rather tomboy-ish. Guess I need not apply"

women are just people with different parts then you. We're not some mythical creature to be chased, hunted or whatever.

and this is the first thread that's made me feel better about being old. Gawd men in their 20s...I swear to gawd...y'all get SO MUCH better over 40 lol

if a cat fucked a shark, the babies would be called women. snowklinger

Yep. A while back I met up with 3 members from here. A few PMs, a couple text messages, and we met on-hill.

However it's possible they thought I was a dude based on my handle

OP: Like neednsnow said a few pages back - just go about it as a normal everyday life interaction and invite. Had you posted something like, "Going to be in the area, does anyone want to meet up?" it would have been so less creepy. If you hit it off with whatever chicks showed up THEN you could offer the full package.



heh.

Your right I may have came off as creepy. Considering you admitted your rather tomboyish, I can argue that I think most women are more than just different parts than men. Thats what makes most of us men "chase and hunt" females rather than just being gay and attracted to our own gender. I believe the aging of men makes them more wise and patient but there are also quite a few negative aspects of getting older as well. I had low expectations for positive responses to this thread and its exactly what I got. Im going to take the advice of some of the posters and strike up a conversation at the bar/lodge.
