The curse of the Internet?

    Why does it seem so much easier to find someone I'm interested in (and that will actually give me the time of day, reciprocity is key) when they're X miles away? (Where X > something easily ignored) Just me? I would say it's a blessing and a curse, but since I'm single, maybe it's really not! lol icon_lol.gif

    Because you're so cute that people get intimidated when meeting you in real life.
    I think that's one of the best pickup lines I've ever typed. Did it work?

    Where ever you are searching online, narrow the scope to only local guys, then you'll be assured as not to be disappointed as to where they live. I can't imagine that someone in your condition and with your looks would have any problem finding some hottie down in Oak Lawn. icon_smile.gif

    Well, thanks, but part of my in person problem is that I'm a little shy and I think it comes off as aloof or something. Maybe it's just me and not the Internet ;)

    I can relate to that. I use to go out to the Castro and then I'd stand in the corner of some bar, finally leaving very depressed and feeling like shit. I usually had guys checking me out and sometimes staring multiple times but I was too shy to make the move. I even went out one night with a goal, to strike up a conversation with a guy just to force myself to do it. I did do it, had a nice conversation, nothing more but was satisfied I could do it. On the Internet I would talk to everyone, it was much easier, less threatening. Funny thing is that I did finally meet my bf and it was in a bar, although I really didn't go to them that often, I said hi to him and it went from there.

    Maybe they are just trying to coax sketchy pics out of you.

    I think it's because there are just more guys >x miles away than in your city. If 1% of the guys online are hot and interested in you, that equals 1 in your town and 100 in the wider world.
