If that is how a woman views online dating, I often wonder why they do it?
So if a big part of a womans concern is what kind of men are so crazy, why wouldn't they for 20 or 25 dollars a month, buy a throw away cell phone for dating?
As I said I've been lucky enough to have chosen polite, respectful men who didn't care one way or the other about my calling from blocked numbers and the few I've given my number too so far have all been fantastic-no problems.
I'll continue to trust my intuition and my judgement of character in general. Then if they stalk or harrass with messages it doesnt interfere with your main communications and you know who would be ringing.
I mean it speaks to their issues, adds a degree of safety at a minimum cost.
As men, should we feel more inclined to co-operate in these cases if we want a date? I've never had anyone abuse my number except for an ex-friend (female) because she was paranoid that her ex-boyfriend was interested in me. My point is, it's probably very rare for anyone to be a stalker once you give them your number.
Lately, with online dating, when it came to the phone call and meeting....I would ask for her # to arrange a meeting, she'd always say, "Give me your phone # and I'll call you." And then she would block it, and it would come in as "private".
One said she won't even give out her # until they've met first meet.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
