    When you are having a friendly conversation with someone (who lives hundreds or even thousands of miles away), where there isn't the slightest chance of a relationship... Why is it that telling them you are dating someone seems to be a conversation ender? It's not like we were going to hook up or even meet. The conversations weren't dirty... Why do people (who initiate the conversation) only want to talk to single guys.

    Beats me. Or the ones who seem to immediately try to start negotiating a hook-up.
    Dude, you're 3000 miles away. Even if I was in to you, it's not going to happen.

    the illusion is broken
    if you want to have a conversation with someone 3000 miles away, who you don't know, who you'll never meet, then don't tell them you are in a relationship .... then again, it might be some rich corporate guy with his own jet and he could just show up at your doorstep some day ... then what you gonna?

    Bantering on the forums is one thing, but if you're going to exchange private emails you're expected to put out.

    This happened to a friend of mine. He's from Texas and decided to fly out to NYC to meet a guy he met on AOL. When he got to the airport, there was a limo waiting for him and it took him to the guy's huge apartment on Park Ave. My friend didn't know that this guy was the Vice President of a popular men's retail chain. He ended up touring all of NYC and the guy's house in the hamptons. And he got tons of free clothes, cologne and watches from him. Lucky bitch.....that's all I gotta say!

    I think people always hope for a romance story like the movies. That and they probably lose interest after the initial spark is gone.

    I agree with you, it doesn't make any sense to me either. Maybe they think coupled guys are no fun.

    Maybe those guys like to assume that they would be completely satisfied if they themselves were in a relationship. I have wondered about this myself although I'm not opposed to it as long as the couple are honest with eachother. It just feels bad when you feel like your being kept a secret even if there is not much of a connection to begin with.

    As far as long distance relationships go, I myself enjoy meeting and talking to guys who live outside the LA bubble every once in awhile. Plus, Skype has brought a lot of people closer together these days.

    Generally speaking, if you're single it's more fun to speak to other singles. There's potential for flirty banter and they can more readily empathise with the position you're in.

    I'd have to agree with this .. a guy in a relationship is just not going to relate as well as one that is not (if you are not in one)

    This is the question I was asking to myself earlier today!
    can't find an answer especially with the people who says they are 'looking for friends' in their profile!

    single guys = you get a chance.
    dating guys = you're an option for them.
    guys from 3000 miles = hell to the no / not an option.

    Do you really want to be another story like on *MTV Catfish? icon_rolleyes.gif

    I met my ex online a while ago, had luck here and there on OK cupid. I usually just take things up front with guys online, if I'm not interested, I'll let them know. Funny, I'm sort of dating now and I get more emails coming in than when I was completely single.

    Friendly conversation, sure.

    But like others in this thread, I am perplexed by guys that try to arrange a hookup when you're nowhere near them. icon_lol.gif
