Mumsnet internet dating
Some people don't like talking on the phone to starangers - I'm one of them.
So if a man suggests talking on the phone it immediately puts me off - would much rather meet, that's not scarey somehow Just regard OD as a hobby - don't get involved with anyone until you've met them Hi Just wanted to add my pennorth.
The last date I went on was with a guy whose first message was an invitation to go out for dinner. Hi...there is a Dating Thread which you might find helpful to join in. Guys (and Im sure girls) who chat and then disappear.This is the precise reason that internet dating does not work for most, too much choice and people not prepared to take the time to get to know someone before jumping onto the next perceived better "match".... The man in question responded to my e mail, when I asked him why he hadn't contacted me.) He sounded thoroughly fed up with the whole thing.I talked to a friend and she suggested that I just ask him if he'd like to meet for coffee, to compare notes on our disillusionment with internet dating, which I did ( she felt that he was not rejecting me, rather, just covering his back , in case I rejected him)Anyway, he didn't even open the message, which I think says it all.
