Have you ever wondered if there are rules for catching "fish" online? And, I like to think they are similar to the rules for fishing with a worm and a pole.Here are a few things to keep in mind as you travel the ocean of online dating and start fishing for men—or women—online.When someone says online dating, one of the first sites that comes to mind is Ok Cupid.It is estimated that there are about 30 million total users, with roughly 1 million unique users logging in every day.It goes without saying that Ok Cupid has one of the better reputations of more popular free dating websites for having a wide variety of quality users.However, Ok Cupid has many not-so-great users as well, and it’s not uncommon for women to have the misfortune of encountering them, and in the past, I have as well. In six or so months online dating, before everything with Henley Boy, I had only met up with one guy for a date. and if they get past that initial filter, then I also like to think I’m a pretty good judge of character, so if anything in their first few messages comes across as a bit odd, I normally sever all conversations.Henley Boy was the second ever guy from a dating website I gave my phone number to. a site I picked, because it seemed like a site that ‘normal’ guys used.
This is why I understand the popularity of online dating. Your dating persona is whatever you want it to be, bold, daring, confident, charming ... I understand how convenient the world of online dating is.
Last summer as I boarded my girlfriend's SUV, she announced, "You have to listen to this song.
It will make you laugh." She popped in a country music CD and I giggled my way through Cooler Online, a song about a guy who works at Pizza Hut, drives a Hyundai, lives with his mom and dad and is 5'3".
But when he's dating online, his life is another story.
Behind the computer, he's smooth, cool, works in Hollywood, drives a Maserati, has a black belt in karate and probably earns at least six figures.
