    My thoughts...

    They all suck. Match is okay, but Christian Mingle and eHarmony suck. If you're really desperate, there's POF aka Plenty of Fish, which I would define as bottom of the barrel dating. Nothing beats meeting a woman in person vs. reading some crappy profile. Just sharing my experiences. As of yesterday, I've closed all of my accounts. Blah.

    In matter of fact, online dating sites became a game. I started an online album entitled "Dating Site Adventures of Epic Proportions"....

    Just as you see with many other things, you get out of them what you put in.

    Maybe you're being a little too hasty with your decision. I met my wife on, and we've been married for 8 1/2 years. It CAN be a great thing. It has been for us. Funny thing, though. I didn't meet her until shortly after I told God that I would be okay if He decided that I should spend the rest of my days alone. He's funny that way. He didn't put us together until He knew that I knew that He was in charge.

    Lol I have gotten rather annoyed with the dating scene. Especially, the online dating ones haha. More specifically, POF and OKCupid. I did for a while, and had decent luck with meeting some attractive women, but I would always find some quirk about the ones I met that wasn't in the criteria that I was Been considering getting back on lately. I did find me a great chick on on POF several months ago and I gotta tell you, it seems like we were made for each other (like that movie Hancock with Will Smith, except we don't throw each other around the city). Sucky thing is, we are so much alike that we are pretty much best friends now and hang out every day.... Stuck in the friend zone haha.

    And it really gets annoying when the chicks still use the "Myspace angles" for their photos so you can't see what they really look like. Yea, POF and OKCupid is scrapping the bottom of the barrel, but everyonce in a while there is someone doesn't and good looking on there. Though, those don't last on there for long haha.

    I've met two women, really hit it off with both of them (not at the same time of course). We emailed, texted, etc, then all it took was 5 minutes on the phone. I'm looking for a lady, not someone who curses every other word...gesh. The other was a stay at home Mom, two kids, no job and was basically a hypochondriac. Everything was always negative, dumped her quickly. I think I'll have better luck in person.

    Just the other day a very attractive woman sat in front of me at the movies, no wedding ring! I swear if I had a pen, I would of given her my contact info. lol. I've started having fun at these dating sites. For example, I switch user names weekly. They include:

    If your single, you should be carrying a pen at all times!!!

    You could have given her your number!

    What? I didn't say I'd pull out a feather and inkwell goober and I would get a blank stare if I asked if I could bluetooth or NFC my contact info. Every few months? You mean every month! Damn Jim, get with the program!

    I have wondered about those dating sites . I met my wife the old fashioned way , I knew her from high school (she was best friends with my best friend's sister) and hounded her to go out with me until she relented and went on a date with me . I guess I was a little to wild for her and she knew too many stories about me , but I wore her down . I was lucky because we had known each other for years so there was not that awkward "getting to know each other" stage .

    I met both my wives the old fashioned a bar! Haha! 1st one lasted 11 months (go figure), the second one is still going, 12 years. You never know where your going to find her, I wouldn't put all my eggs in one basket, i.e. online dating.
    I'm always looking out for the next ex-Mrs. Brother K.S., although I've been keeping mostly to gun shops and gun shows (j/k). Now there's a keeper!! Haha, good luck brothers...

    Gentlemen I can see it now!

    You see the misses, in passing, headed to to adjoining pot on the other side of the master bathroom. You nod, she only slightly acknowledges. Not bad, if you remember last week; her tweedier message was both abrupt and stinging. Still it's typical communication after eight years of marriage.

    Suddenly, after adjusting to a cold, cold toilet seat you get a bump and spy a hash-tag saying: "It's over a-hole, you just don't understand me. We've grown apart!"

    Puzzled, you think without tickling the keys, "Wasn't it her idea to override the builder's design and put the water closets on opposite sides of the room?"

    Just about that time your battery fails.

    What to do next!

    Oh the wows of this information age!
