no more online dating for me

So I am about to cancel the online dating membership. No use in paying good money on something that I will rarely give any attention to. Upon taking one last look at the emails and winks, I see a couple of profiles marked as “hidden”. If the purpose of doing online dating is to meet people, wouldn’t it be understood that others might want to look at your profile so they can know more about you? Doesn’t hiding your profile from others defeat this purpose? Or maybe this is someone who is afraid of their wife finding them on there… or maybe their co-workers already have and they are being tortured unmercilessly. Kids Grownups can be so cruel.

UPDATE: I just love it when a guy asks me for my number in the first email that he sends, to which I reply that I don’t give out my number to people I have not met in person. In this case, I was in a good mood and thought he hates the whole email thing as much as I do and, so I did something I would not normally do – I gave him my AIM id. His reply – “well i doubt you meet ppl u haven’t talked with on the phone…….so iguess u don’t meet ppl………knda sad.”

If you are going to try to make me feel like I have done something wrong because I did not give you my number then could you at least learn how to type, spell, use proper grammar, etc. I find nothing attractive about people who can’t take the time to type full words, and follow up with a spell check.

    I think it is different for everyone – it is subjective to what each individual is looking for. Some are looking for something casual while others are looking for something more serious.
