Online Dating – Interview with Men
Another way would be one of your friends telling you about it. Another way is to just find someone who has tried online dating and ask him about the experience, both positive and negative. That is exactly what I plan to do in this article. Of course, the men I am going to interview for the article wish to remain anonymous, so I will just call them Online Dater 1, 2, and 3. We will begin with online dater 1; (a 37-year-old male) Me: How did you hear about online dating? Online Dater 1; How can you not hear about it. You get emails, popups at websites, etc.
You’d have to live under a rock to have not heard about online dating. Me: Where and how did you meet your first online date? Online Dater 1; At Match.com. I was searching profiles and found a few women that I might be compatible with and sent them emails. I paid for a membership there so I would be allowed to email them.
Me: How long did you chat with this person online before you two decided to date in person? Online Dater 1; We exchanged several emails before we actually exchanged phone numbers. And basically, one fairly long phone call turned into a date. Me: What was it about them that made you want to meet them in person and did you feel they were your soul mate? Online Dater 1; I thought she was sweet. She shared a lot of the same values I did, or said she did, anyway. She piqued my interest. I never thought of her as my soul mate, but did want to get to know her better. Me: Was your first impression of her, upon seeing her in person a surprise, a positive reaction, or a negative reaction? Online Dater 1; To be honest, she looked absolutely nothing like her picture. She had posted of picture of herself, much younger, and about 150 pounds lighter. However, she was still a very pretty lady. Me: So, tell us what happened after meeting her in person.
Online Dater 1; We dated a couple of times. I did like her. I understand why she was still single at 38 years old. She wanted Antonio Banderas to wine and dine her and quite frankly neither of us was in that league. Her standards were far too high. Okay, next I will be talking to a 29-year-old male about his experience. Me: How did you hear about online dating? Online Dater 2; Match.com emails. Me: Where did you meet your first online date? Online Dater 2; Same answer, emails from Match.com got me to sign up.
I received an email from a girl who saw my profile. Me: How long did you chat with this person online before you two decided to meet in person? Online Dater 2; A couple of days. We talked by email for a couple of days, then by phone for a couple of days. Me: What was it about them that made you want to meet them in person and did you feel they were your soul mate? Online Dater 2; She was just really nice, sincere, honest sounding. She didn’t seem to just be saying what I wanted to hear. I felt her answers were honest. Everyone has their ups and downs in life and she was open about the things she was going through and things she had gone through. The openness impressed me. Did I think she was my soulmate? Honestly, yes. Me: Was your first impression of her, upon seeing her in person a surprise, a positive reaction, or a negative reaction? Online Dater 2; A positive reaction, totally.
She matched her picture and profile to the letter and was smiling like an angel. Me: So, tell us what happened after meeting her in person. Online Dater 2; We dated frequently from day one. We were both obviously very interested in each other. In a very short time we both knew we were in love with each other. Within two months I knew she was the girl I wanted to marry. We’ve been happy ever since. Last, a 38-year-old male shares his online dating experience with us. Me: How did you hear about online dating? Online Dater 3; A friend of mine suggested I try online dating.
