    Do you ever find dates on Facebook, Badoo, Tagged, Twiiter or Meetup?

    I'm registered on all five. I just wondered if they brought you any romance. Badoo seems like it may be slightly easier for single gents to get a bird than on say, Plenty of Fish. Although I could substitute "Fish" for a certain 'P' word instead, because that site is awful.

    Well, I got randomly asked out on Fb once, and did actually date the gal. She's one of the saner ones I've been with, just not my thing. I'm chronically single though. I haven't asked out a woman online in years. I know people who have had luck with Tinder (the app) and Match though. I don't feel like I can do the whole online dating thing again but I'm not sure what's holding me back. Let us know if you have luck.

    I met two people off the net over the years. Where did I meet them on the net? In a chat room I was using at the time. Just like a normal site. Not based towards dating or anything like that. You can make friends on any site. Even the last site I was on, there was a few couples, who met using the site. It was an anxiety based site. Just like this one. People just seem to form connections with each other. Nothing is planned to begin with. Just happens over time. Never tried any Apps or dating sites.

    What about okcupid? It seems more friendly.

    I was on okcupid for a long time. I could barely get any woman to respond to emails. The very last one I got to call responded with "Oh this is awkward I found someone, God Bless" That was around 5 years ago. After that I lost hope in online dating. Because there was just too many problems along the way. After trying on various websites, dating sites, social networks, and forums, for around 12 years, I decided I had enough. Working this hard at it, it would be more than heartbreaking for me to finally find someone that I could go out on a date with only to have her break up with me. I quit!

    Does nobody do things the old fashioned way these days? Like walk up to a person, be it in a bar, club, library or in a caf?. Just start a normal conversation with them. I know a lot of people on here have anxiety issues. Finding a person on a dating site and meeting up would be more nervous in my eyes. Lord, I recall the old lonely hearts pages in the newspapers. I seriously used to wonder how real they were. Who would write into a paper looking for love. Then again we have loads of rural places here in Ireland. Mary from the back [BEEP] of nowhere. Suppose people took risks back in those days too. That was long before the net. You meet a person on the net these days all the small talk is done before you ever meet them in person. Not sure if that helps or not? Lot of hook ups via the net will end with sex on the first night. Is like people are in too much of a hurry these days. Feck the small talk and getting to know you shit, we done all that on the net. The world is a changing place.

    Not on the sites the OP mentioned. I met someone on another anxiety site, and we used to talk for hours at a time, and met up a few times. There was def an attraction for both of us that went way beyond friendship, but in the long run it didn't work out. Mostly because we both have too much baggage...we were both recently divorced. We're still friends, and I have absolutely no regrets about it. Her triggers for anxiety are exactly like mine, we're both so much alike it's hard to believe. She's a pretty amazing, strong woman, who has been through pure hell and fought her way through it when she could've just given up.

    I'm going on a cruise in a few months (no kids in our group this time) and they have a "role call" online for the same cruise I'm going on. I haven't done it yet, I've just been lurking so far, but there are actually a lot of 30 and 40 something single women there. It's an eight day cruise, so I'm just looking for people to hang out with. I keep putting off doing it cos of anxiety tho. But hey, if I get to know some people on that site before we board the ship, great. If not, c'est la vie.

    I just can't make myself do dating sites like OK Cupid. I'm sure people meet up there all the time, even end up married. But it seems like all I hear about wrt those sites are horror stories. Anxiety about that keeps me from doing it.
    You're going to lose people in your life, and realize that no matter how much time you spent with them or how often you told them you loved them, it will never seem like it was enough.

    Hug the ones you love.

    I searched both free and non free dating sites. Both Secular and Christian. I always had a terrible time finding a woman that fit everything a man like me would look for in a woman. 1) How close does she live to me (9 times out of 10 not close enough to date) 2) What is her creed? (9 times out of 10 no match there) 3) What is her expectations (If she shares the same creed as I do, then her expectations are through the roof!) 4) What is her politics (Usually doesn't match mine) 5) What does she look like (Sites like Okcupid always pared me up with someone that is not attractive to me.) 6) Does she answer emails? (9 out of 10 don't answer my messages no matter how hard I try to write) After 12 years of it, I through in the towel. I should write a book called "Why not meant to be for me" These dating sites are like playing the lottery. Pull the lever and hope something comes out. If you think about it, the business model is all about making money. Who do they make money off of? The ones who find love or the one's who don't? In the case of pay sites, I say they make the most money off of those who don't find love right away. The free sites make money off of selling off your personal information. Then though the system works sometimes, over all I think it's a crappy bad system.

    Dating?!... I turned 65 this year, and from my point-of-view, dating gets harder to do, the older one gets. My last girlfriend put up a very good front, and so I thought she was the perfect woman for me. That all changed when we moved in together, and she let loose of all her baggage. Talk about a 180 degree turn about. Man!... Now I don't believe in closing doors on any aspect of life, and that includes dating, but I am very happy with myself, and so I am no longer knocking on doors. If my door gets knocked on, I'll open it, but with caution-LOL!...
