Met my girlfriend this way

Knockbacks can be hard on the ego

INTRODUCTION A couple of years ago, when I was still single, I wrote a short article about my own experiences of internet dating which I had aspirations of sending to some men's magazine or something, long before I even knew review sites existed. I thought it was time it had an airing. This was...

You get a boy/girl-friend

Hard work

Some of you may already know that I’ve been in an online relationship the last four months. I finally met my girlfriend, Emily, last Monday (09/02), when she flew in from America for a holiday, so I thought now would be a good time to tell. I’ve pointed out before Ciao asks for ‘member advice’...

Love on line

Phone sex

However hard they try to market a dating site it always makes the people on the avert look desperate, deemed not capable of attracting a mate and so in need of help, adding to their anxieties. We have all seen those dreadful E-Harmony adverts and the fact those people are probably actor’s backs...

Don't have to dress up for a date!

Can be thousands of miles away!

I think that everyone who has an internet relationship has had a different experience. Some have been good and some have been bad. I suppose it is no different than in person to person relationships. Just a note, this review is NOT a HOW TO review! So, with that thought in mind, this is my story...

A year ago, I was entirely resigned to my fate as a middle aged celibate matriarch of a one parent family, consisting of four mostly grown up children and three young grand-children.I would have told you I was perfectly happy as I was, and having had one divorce followed by several years of the...

What qualifies me to advise on online dating? Well, just before Christmas 2001, I signed up for several online dating sites. In February 2002, I met my current boyfriend, after emailing him for around 6 weeks. Prior to that, I dated one other man who I had met on a dating site. In addition to my...

There have been 64 ops on Dooyoo and 8 on Ciao before on the subject of "Have you found love on the internet?", I suppose you want mine to be the funniest don't you ??? Well, being funny on this subject may dilute the object, but I have done quite a number of other ops if you'd like a laugh or...

Getting to know the mind before the man!

Meeting can be a little fraught!

The other evening, as I was finishing off browsing Ciao and about to shut down, I noticed that a *personals* link had appeared under the "I Want To..." column on the member pages. Unable to explain what posessed me, I clicked on the link and was taken to the Yahoo! personals page. It was late...

good way to meet people

not being careful

Meeting people online through personal ads and dating service is basically blind dating so don't be blind in getting the facts. I have ran many personal ads and had scads of dates through them. The first thing you want to do when some one contacts you is to exchange a lot of e-mails and ask as...
