Male verses female: not just in 'reality' TV!

The human race. It is a 'race' after all, isn't it? Internet dating is a real joke that I fell victim to. The women are usually devorced with 3.2 kids, they post a photo from when they were 22 when they are really 44. Men do the same, but in a different way. I lie about my age, but that's about it. I am what I am and I am who I am. What about you? Why is the race, a human race, which is really a race to 'gain' something at the cost of others losing something. What say Ye? Jasonsos

Oh man, the internet dating scams. I hate them, and I've been burned by both men and women on them. Men lie about thier income and what they're looking for in a partner, women lie about their looks and what they're offering in a partner. There are just a lot of dishonest, desperate people out there. On both sides of the gender divide. It's a pain weeding through the liars and the scammers to find the decent people who are up front about who they are.

Yeah, you're right on all counts. We should invent a micro-chip that would be inserted into the eyes (not yours or mine) that would emitt a bright red laser beam when they tell a lie: "Oh," she began, as I pulled myself up from the sidewalk on 42nd street, "I thought I told you I had a twin?" Hang in there. Where there is life, there is HOPE. Of that, I am sure of. Thanks for your post! Jasonsos

My son met his wife on the internet. She was single and had no children. She was living in Minnesota at the time and my son flew over to meet her. They were married in Florida a few months later and have now moved back here to Ireland. My daughter also met her husband on the internet, and they too are very happilly married here in Ireland. I guess you have just been a bit unlucky so far, or you might call it 'the luck of the irish'.

Erin! Alex! How did you know that I am half Irish/Cheyenne? Yes, I hear success stories like that now and then, and I long to live a day in their nest, just to feel the warmth. I never knew true love, nor complete happiness in love, although I sure as hell tried my best to give it. I guess that's why I ended up a Folksong writer/poet/novelist: ya gotta love something! Aho!

Ya lost me in connection. I've been close to several very famous friends who are worse off then most: they feel that women just want them for there fame and fortune. 'Walk a mile in their shoes, but I'd take the fame and live with the fortune. ;-) Thanks for your Post! Jasonsos

Well, I am 58 and was widowed, after 30 years of a very rocky marriage where we tolerated each other. After I got a computer a friend told me to check into chatrooms and meet some people my age who have been through what I had been through. I did, and met some great friends who I am close to now, but I also met a widower, I might add neither one of us was looking. He is the person I should have had in my life right from the beginning. We have been married for 4 years, now, together for 5 years. It just keeps getting better. Don't look, and when you least expect it you will find the one for you. And learn how, in the mean time, to spot the phonies..they really aren't that hard to figure out.

I've never tried the internet dating thing because of all the bad publicity. I'm really very sorry for what happened to your daughter. I once read somewhere the following sentence...which I found to be very true: PEOPLE LIE TO GOD EVERY DAY...WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT THEY WON'T LIE TO YOU? It's just the way it is. Sad but true. Take care,dear and may God guide you by the hand in any and every decision that you have to make throughout your life.

good for me. interenet dating went fine in my life. i wasn't really expecting to find love over the internet. i just got bored one day and signed up in one matchmaking site. then, i fipped through profiles just to make use of my time. then, i've seen one cute picture. got interested. then, read his profile. i sent him a one sentence email. and luckily, on that day, he replied. that was december 1 of last year. we started to become friends. i started sending him photos through postal systems and he sends me letters and cards the same way, too. it was more personal reading his own penmanships. we started really to be good friends. aside from the snailmails, we continued the emails. then, at late march, we started chatting. then, during the last week of april, we felt love already and gave love a chance. we had a relationship on april 25 this year. he came over to meet me and my family last november. we spent 2 good weeks together. and we really love each other. and i'm moving in with him to sweden late next year. and for me, i am lucky i wasn't in the human race you've mentioned above. i won the race with my boyfriend! i think it's a matter of choice. people here get lied upon through internet dating because they are in so much hurry to find love. they don't let love grow. and as you've said, they lie about their age and post photos not of their own. be proud of yourself. be honest. you'll never get wrong when there's honesty.

Oh that's really bad. We, humans, are just born this way, both good and bad. Anyway, I got a friend who was Yahoo chatter. He always got to Chatrooms and do some crazy stuff. He got bored there and actually signed-up on those adult web cams thingy. He was surprised that most of the girls in there are way too adult for him..lol. I guess this is really what you get for being a pervert. By the way, he still does this. he encounter young ones once in awhile. Haha.

I don't agree with internet dating. I think it's too easy to lie. Dating should be done the old-fashioned way. Get a family member or a friend to set you up.
