There ARE good men!! It’s so true, you gotta kiss a lot of frogs… No guy is going to be perfect, sometimes I want to strangle DH, but he’s a good man, doesn’t lie or sneak around, is totally devoted etc.

The online guy just closed you because it’s weird to meet someone you know on online dating. I tried it and ran into my “matches” in bars, found out they knew my siblings etc. It’s weird don’t take it personally that he’s choosing to keep his online dating life to online, he made that decision because he probably isn’t interested in dating people he works with. Nothing to do with you.

I agree, be patient, don’t look and you’ll find him! Dating sucks, especially when you had such a long relationship before being single, so date for fun but don’t take anyone seriously unless they deserve you. And stop thinking there’s something wrong with you! There’s just something wrong with dating *shutter*

Just date for fun. Never take anything seriously. Tell yourself you intend to date 200 guys before you settle down and you learn to enjoy the experience. After all date # 23 is just something you have to get thru before you settle down with Mr. 200. It really helps you not take rejection seriously. Mr. Right is out there he just isn’t Mr. Rightnow. Have fun with dating. I hope they spend $ on you!

I promise there are lots of good guys out there – just go on dates to meet people, learn new things and hey, have some funny stories to tell girlfriends!  Guard your heart, and you will know when you meet the person that you can open up to and begin a relationship with.  Internet dating can be very hard – it never really worked for me, but I have alot of friends who are now married from the internet! It can be a little bit like being in a candy store for some guys, but you will have to weed them out – it’s like being in a bar with a million guys, gotta get thru the losers/players, right?

You’ll meet him – just go out right now to have fun, with no pre conceived notion or ideas about them – DO NOT email them back and forth a ton or talk on the phone for hours – i would exchange one or two emails then arrange to meet for coffee or a drink – I’ve found that if you spend a lot of time getting to know the person before you meet them you may be disappointed – if you have built up this idea or person that you think they will be….

just HAVE FUN! and if he’s annoying…DRINK LOTS!

@Rileys Mom: I guess my point was to pick a number so far in the future that you are just looking at this as fun and not something to take seriously (as in don’t get crushed). My friend looked at it as dating his way thru the alphabet. He stopped at M because he met Moriah. He never made it to Z he didn’t need to. When you meet the right one you will know. Just have fun.

Well, who knows why he ‘closed’ you. Maybe he has other opportunities that are getting serious. Maybe he doesn’t want to date someone he met through work.

My three siblings, my sister in law, and several friends have all found serious relationships/fiance’s/spouses through online dating. It works, just might take a while to find the right one. Hang in there!

If you work in the same place, that might have been why he closed you. I know some people are really wierd about their online dating profile being discovered. A person I knew in college found mine and blocked it because he didn’t want me to know he was on the site. I wouldn’t say it was because of anything you did, sounds more like a personal life/work boundary to me.
