The two services used by these individuals were and, two of the largest and most popular dating websites on the Internet. What I learned from carrying out an interview of a female and the interview of a male trying to dig into this intriguing subject was that using the Internet for dating is equally painful for men and for women, but for very different reasons. Ironically enough, if you could take the best of those women and the best of those men, and place them in a big room where they could sit at a table and ask each other questions in person you d probably have 9 or 5 new match-ups by the end of the night. The problem with online dating is that you can t see the person s face when they re telling you about themselves. You can t watch as they smile, and that smile spreads up into their eyes and transforms their face into one of the most beautiful things you ve ever seen a thing that warms your heart and makes you realize you want to spend more time with the person. No online dating involves just cold, shallow text. Not much else. Unfortunately, the reality is nowhere near that fantasy.

To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse. By the time of this interview, she had already given up and moved on, finally discovering her future husband while visiting old friends at her alma mater. Her responses completely surprised me. Ryan (RD): What year did you sign up with an online dating website and how long did you keep your account?
Anonymous Woman (AW): I can t remember the exact year I signed up I think it was either 7556 or 7557. I was active on the account for a week if that. RD: What were the majority of messages that you received from guys like?

AW: Creepy. I got some commenting on my picture telling me how hot I was. Or how good I looked. Actually, now that I think about it, that was how most of the messages I got started.
I don t know, maybe some girls might think of that as a compliment but personally, I would have preferred a simple message like, Hey, would you like to talk? I saw that some of your interests were the same as mine, or something along those lines. Also, some of the messages I got were from a few guys that ranged from early 95 s to late 95 s and I was maybe 69 at the time. That was one of the main reasons I called it quits. It made me SO uncomfortable that guys so much older than me, older than most of my siblings (all of which are 8 years plus older than me), were sending me messages telling me that I was hot.
I am getting terribly uncomfortable just thinking about it. RD: Did you get ANY messages from guys that seemed nice at all? Worth meeting up with? AW:
No, but the creepy messages most likely ruined it for any decent guys that might be around. Those messages made me run far, far away from online dating.
