The hits came rolling in, one after another! LOL. Tons of interested e-mails from girls I have never even contacted before. I didn't change my pic either. Funny huh?

So I guess it's true that most girls aren't attracted to guys who will treat them well and would rather be with a narcissist!?
Oh my god, that made me laugh! My guy had a very nice profile. He was cute and outdoorsy (like me) and wrote very well. I avoided profiles like Man_4_You like the plague (no offense).

Hmmm... that's a good point. Maybe I just got lucky. I wasn't really in a hurry, just got out a nasty relationship, so I was pretty careful to pick someone whose profile spoke to me. I remember making myself not write back to some of the guys who approached me who were very hot, but did not have anything in common with me. When I saw my guy's profile he just seemed like such a good fit. Cute, outdoorsy and active, very articulate.

As for the guys on for years, I think you know the answer there! I wish they'd confine themselves to the casual dating sites.

Re: Online Dating and "Guy Quality"

Thanks!! I'm really excited. He's a great guy. And it only took me 14 years of dating and relationships to find the right one.

Hey, maybe 14 is a lucky number in love! I am now entering into my 14th year of dating (or more accurately at present, not dating) too. Maybe it will be lucky for me also

Seriously, Ruby, you deserve it!

I loved that movie! I should make clear I haven't been going on 14 years of chaste first-dates. I started dating at 17, so I figure 5 years were just practice anyway until I became a bit of an adult. Then you throw in a 3 year relationship and a couple of year-long relationships and poof! I'm 31.

I think some of us just take longer to figure out what we want and develop enough judgment to find guys who know what they want.

Yeah, I met my first boyfriend at 20, then had a very long relationship with my second boyfriend, then a couple of shorter ones and poof--I'm 33! Can't believe how time flies! I'm definitely a late bloomer myself.
