My lady and I met via an Internet dating site. We have had a wonderful couple of years and both look forward to many more. I know that I am certainly not alone in finding my partner this way. There ar

I have only tried internet dating once.  Or would all 4 be considered as..? The first one I met (and the reason I moved to the Philippines) was a beautiful too young woman I met on a pen pal site

I met my SO on an internet dating site.  It is a matter of how you use it, whether it works or not.  We have been together 5 years.

Its great that so many of you met your wives on DIA.  Maybe I met them there too :hystery: :hystery: :hystery:  Just kidding guys.  I'm just saying that a lot of the girls online get a lot of action but every one I have ever talked to tells me stuff like:  "Oh I just joined for fun.  I have been a member here for (fill in blank) years and you are the first one I have ever met in real life from that site."  And of course I always say:  "Oh really?  Me too." :hystery: :hystery: :hystery:

Many success stories here, I was just wondering how many did you guys meet online before finding 'the one'?

In my experience I used online to find a 'tour guide' when I went to Hong Kong. Was the 4th or 5th contact I made, happened to be a Filipina. We were together 5 months or so. Came to Dumaguete and was introduced to my now wife by her cousin. She was a friend's girlfriend at the time, they are married now also. (He met her at a gas station)

In think there's two ways of looking at the dating sites and the success stories. I used them also to get a guide as a few of the women say they are on them just to make friends etc. I think it's very easy to find a person who could turn out to be a great wife and I think a lot of it is the Filipino perception of Foreigners. 

If you tried a Western dating site I could almost guarantee you'd struggle to find wife material in the first year or two as the majority aren't looking for long term relationships, yet if you try a Filipino dating site about 90% of foreigners would find what they class as wife material pretty quickly. I met up with and talked to a few women on line and almost everyone was looking for a foreign husband. Fortunately as I was visiting a few times I met up with a few. All of them ticked most of my boxes but common sense kicked in. 

I could have had my pick of young pretty women but being realistic they wanted a family with me and I'm at the stage in life where it's ME time. I've worked almost every day since I was 12 years old and brought four kids up, I don't want to be starting all that again. I want to travel and do things at the spur of the moment so I got ruthless with my choice of partner. I've narrowed it down to a 47yr old who has never been married and both parents are dead. She has cousins and sisters but has made it clear there is no way she will live near them as like me she's worked hard all her life to feed and clothe them so now it's her time. She even said to me if I want rug rats get a young girl and not her. 

I met her on-line so yes I'd like to think it's worth giving Internet dating a try. At least you can set your preferences and if you aren't blinded by lust you've a far greater chance of finding the right one on line than on the street.

So ya go to a dating site, and ya see a pic of a good looking gal, and you click on her profile.  Then ya see she has 1142 pics of herself on that profile.  1142 pics!  WTF?  You'd think she could find a good one after a half dozen or so.

 

So the topic is "Why bother yourself with Internet Dating"?  Because its entertaining. Thats it, thats all!

 

Here's another entertaining one:  "Member since November 6, 2004" and she still has the same, original pictures and still goes to the site daily to see if she can find another sucker.  Its more fun in da Phils.

 

By now some are wondering what DH is doing on dating sites and I'll tell ya, just entertaining myself.  Nothing to see here.  :hystery:
