This is pretty common in my experience. There could be a lot of reasons, who knows what people are thinking. I think many people don't even think of the digital chat coming from the other side as a real person until they've met in the flesh.

And even then there are plenty of instances of ghosting someone after several dates. People are just crappy.

People generally don't like to say that they aren't really into you, or that something/someone else is better. It would be nice, I guess, if people would just be able to say "I'm not going to talk to you again" but that just isn't how people do it unless that is the only way available. Avoiding uncomfortable conversations is easier. It isn't worth worrying about unless people you meet are actually moving to a different city purely to avoid having contact with you.

Re: Online dating thread

What if it's just another city within the same state? Sometimes it's still not easy to track them down.

If you aren't the cause of the move, it is all ok

If they don't even tell you that they moved, you can't ask why...

Slow thread tonight... Everyone else must be on a date.

I guess they must be.

I have a question for you: which do you prefer more - going on dates all the time, meeting a variety of different women, or being in a long term relationship with just one woman?

Re: Online dating thread

Personally I prefer a LTR if it's meeting all my needs. Going out and meeting new women is stressful.

How many needs do you need this ltr to provide? Would you say perhaps 12 needs?
