If I could answer those questions +Amanda Blain, I might actually have success getting a date.
Well I don't believe there ever were any 😉
…because nice normal socially adjusted people don't exist
Oh boy, you know it
careful, she's a biter…
I think nice, normal, socially adjusted people just don't need the internet to date/socialize.
Hey now +Brandi Bull, I resemble that remark. 😛
I must have just lucked out. I had the exact same ideas about women till I went online and met my Lady.
and whats wrong with kittens? Prepared right they taste just like chicken.
lol, I love how women see men as the issue and vice versa.. I have met some awful kinds of crazy from the female population. Its not just men. women carry the crazy too.
I met my partner online dating and still going strong since 2007. So there nice people out there.
I'm not against online dating. I met my wife on ToonTown XD. Although, I wouldn't consider myself normal.
i have facebook and thats enough lol. omg is it.

I met my wife IRL. But we grew from casual acquaintances to friends via email. Without those conversations, we would never have gotten together.
Stop looking, goto a bar someplace (Real one not a "online" bar) , relax & have fun.
See how you get on.
+Sergio Corrales good one lol
+Christopher Stokes I had to…haha
bars are not great places but you can get layed thou 😉
Because you're looking in the wrong place with too narrow of a view.
There are no men vs women remarks in my question thank you very much.. I clearly stated peoples.. 🙂
I regularly leave my house… and get introduced to/meet lots of nice married couples and people 🙂
I don't think it's that ridiculous. I've tried it twice but for guys it's just as difficult as the picture above implies – it's not easy meeting a 'normal' person. Saying that, meeting a normal person whilst going out isn't easy either. I met my girlfriend in a pub, which is a bit cliché, but if you're trying to find someone who really connects with you it's better to have an open mind on how you might bump into that person.
Alot of men are just on there for sex.
+David Lee you need to come by me for dinner sometime. Be sure to bring your specially prepared kitten
E: All of the above
It's hard to find a connection either online or in person these days.
He may be all those things, but she is emotionally unstable and has an unhealthy diet of computer hardware. We're not all perfect ;).
and besides your a very very pretty women guys should be all over you asking for dates…
Online allows us to be picky and dismissive without much personal discomfort, so some good people (potential mates) are dismissed due to poor grammar or unflattering pics. When meeting someone IRL, one tends to take in the package as a whole. Online allows me to pick someone apart word by word, character by character.
Full disclosure, I met my partner online in 2004, and he is mostly awesome! 🙂
An age old problem no matter who you are, what you look like or where you live. Like my grandma always used to say .. you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince LOL
+Barb David ouch that hurt lol 😉
I hate bars. Smoke. Loud music I rarely like. Dim lights. That means I can't tell if the peoples can carry on a conversation, look decent, or smell clean. WTF kind of place is that to meet anyone?!
I did online dating. The female population is just as bad. I think I am mostly normal and have been married to a woman I met online 10 years ago.
There's alot of women there just for sex too +Cherie DeBrule
hurt? I hurt someone? dammit skulks off to find wine
+Charles Moore Well the bars I goto are Non-smoking , good back ground music with tranquil garden bars. And guess what… thats where i met MY princess! :p
+Barb David i was kidding lol
+Derrick Best Where are these women?
I work for eHarmony.I just died laughing.
Good question +Amanda Blain and thankfully, I'm married and no longer have to go through the whole dating hell.
Your question is timely because I just started working with a guy (also from Canada) who is experiencing the same dilemma. He finds it's easy to meet woman through the sites he utilizes, but complains it's difficult to meet quality woman due to the fact that so many stretch the truth or eliminate key details, etc.
+Derrick Best yep i know many like that with my music and art i get so many that want just sex. so your right
According to Ok Cupid women are much more critical blog.okcupid.com/index.php/your-looks-and-online-dating/
+Yas Mean you do did you see the picture? http://www.filehurricane.com/photos/1114200980827AM_OnlineDating.jpg
+Angela Rae Powerbeard and hookers lol
in G+ – online no longer means only the written word or static images – you can now do hangouts and HEAR them laugh and see them move and smile or grin – Thank You HANGOUTS!
mmmmmmmmm hangouts lol
Whew +Christopher Stokes. Skips off to drink that wine!
