Online love is a battlefield too?

I have to hand to the single people who are online dating these days. Seriously, you are true soldiers of love! A lot of us go online, create a profile, answer the billion personality questions, load a picture, then actually communicate with potential dates. That takes focus and effort that some people don’t even put into “offline” dating!

I think people are used to doing it now so the rules of engagement, as it were, are easier to determine and perhaps better then it used to be. What kind of things should you always consider when deciding to date online? How do you gauge real interest? It seems that the physical attraction (or lack thereof) is the biggest hurdle to clear in the beginning. What do you think makes it easier to offset that challenge?

Have you tried online dating recently? Do you believe it has lead to good matches? If you had to put a profile up, what sorts of things would get your attention? Humor and wit, racy pictures?

The matchmaker, Paul Brunson who guest blogged for us (aka Real Life “Hitch” ) has taken to Twitter to connect single people from all over!  It’s very interesting to see the questions that people want to ask the bachelor/bachelorette.

If you meet someone online, what are the most important questions to ask to get a feel for how compatible (crazy?) they are?

Dig/Mo/DD/Simple?

Uall got a point and I’m having to look at this with some American eyes and skepticism. I liked frank in the DJ circuits as well, he’s my favorite and that clouds your judgement definitely!
You know what else I’m thinking??

His contract and the extensions etc I have seen the head honcho head shot pics there at the vee(won’t mention his name) if u know what I mean??

Is he not pie too and this contract think could be an inside thing?

Sorry if I lose you!

Lady – I love Dr. Stanley too. He explains the Bible very well, but does not hit you over the head with it. He’s not flamboyant, just preaches the Word without judgement, because he’s had his own trials and tribulations.

@Mo the cursing better yet the cussing had me like this when I first heard him :shock:

@Dig that what’s good man…I am not crunk yet I am about a 2 on the scale. Confession, I’ve never went past a 4 or 5 on the blog (1-10 scale) :grin:

@blue thanks for trading…don’t worry about the nibbles I took I do not have the bishop cooties

I am on a few other blogs and his supporters are going in hard, and his opponents are going in harder. I am just lurking I don’t want to post…there are a few “legal beagles eagles” posting too on the site.

interesting stats:

there are more women than men on eharmony.com and match.com

More men than women on plentyoffish.com

giveyourhandabreak.com gives you the break down stats (and skinny) on online dating sites. They have a plethora of sites they report on.

Do you like adventure (saying in my old spice man voice) try crazyblinddate.com . you enter a profile and select the areas where you would like to go on a date. your profile and pic are hidden and the profile and pic of your matches are also hidden. Neither of you will know who you look like until you meet at the spot for the agreed upon date.
Once there, you will receive a text message from crazyblinddate.com indicating clues as to what to look for so that you will be able to find your date.

I guess thats why he still has that transvestite on his show….

If the “rumors” from B’more/DC were/are true then Sophia would’ve for sure found it out…THAT might be a reason she/he’s not on the show anymore.

Good morning!

Welcome evy ~ you are on a 2 week probation, but I see you’re fitting in just fine.

@czB ~ you say his pics are a bit “pie-ish” looking. Heck, him wearing all those tight, lycra looking shirts with that wet, shiny hair is “pie-ish.” I don’t know what to make of this mess, all I know anything in life is possible….

On topic: Online dating is becoming more and more of a viable way to connect with another. I see myself moving toward that venue. I’ve been on a few, but eharmony asks a boatload of questions that should seriously help in the screening process…we shall see.

I’m hungry, wasn’t able to get any breakfast so I have to take an early lunch. Now, the blogster is gulping down people lunches. Sad!

Kym — That’s because the ones who make the most noise about it are always the freakiest mofo’s around… Always.

I grew up in quite possibly the most redneck town on Earth… I got called a f@g every single day by those sh!t-kicking f#cks because I wasn’t a redneck like them. But it didn’t bother me, because I knew I wasn’t. And I also knew that I was f@#king the only decent looking chick in the whole school while they were playing grab-a$$ with each other in their deer stands. Point is, when you know you’re not a certain way, you don’t really give a f@#k if some other jerk0ff thinks you are. But when you know deep down that you really are a certain way, you will throw a hissy fit trying to convince everyone you’re not.

If these allegations are true, do you think these boys got mad when they realized bishop played them. The papers say they gave consent, but think about it they are doing Girlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Talk on the teeeee to the telephone and realize that both had the ceremony with bishop and went from there. There is nothing like a woman scorn. This is only if the allegations are true…this is not a molestation claim the complaint list it as coersion and EL abusing his fiduary (sp) responsibility.

@dig please explain more…do you feel Creflo is pretty faithful to Taffi and is not on the DL? Just curious I heard Creflo on the radio promoting his book a while back and he said that Taffy was his best friend and his favorite preacher. It was really beautiful to hear him talk about his wife in that regard. I love, love when it is true.

What’s done in the dark will come to the light.

I have no idea if there is merit to the extent of the claims being made against E.L. However, I know that, like all, he is human and susceptible to falls from grace.

One thing I have learned is to not be so quick to judge and certainly not so harshly.

And for some reason, I am thinking of Mark 4:24 this morning…

this is not a molestation claim the complaint list it as coersion and EL abusing his fiduary (sp) responsibility.

Right that was thrown in at the end. I listened to v103 this morning and when the lawyer representing the two young men said “there are others” that she’s since been contacted by I was like :shock: I thought back to an interview she gave on a local new channel yesterday and wondered why she said “three” young men and corrected herself and said “two”…so I wonder if they’re gonna start coming out of the woodworks now.

And as far as Frank ski is concerned I’ve thought he was a hypocrite for the longes time…cussing like a sailor on the mic,infidelity(seent first hand) and who knows what else….it’s rampant is all I can say and nobody’s perfect.

@im swiss- I will have to agree with you on that bruh. One little bar I hang at has gotten more gay and it doesn’t bother me because still a lot of fine ladies there and hell it is in midtown but I had to talk to one of the dudes we hang with when there (regular) because this dude was out of control with the gay bashing one night like he was on a mission. I had to tell him he was blowing my high and ask why in the hell you care so much about them when that means we got more of the ladies to ourselves. He went on and on and on until about 3 days later this fool was sitting at the bar and one lil girly dudes came to him and damn near kissed him in the mouth when he thought we weren’t looking and that explained it all. I was like a WTF. You raised all the hell and you one of them. Now the harder they try to convince they aren’t then it is a very good chance they are.

Actually two of them one of them did not even have lunch (I fed him a few times) out the goodness of my heart nothing big just soup or something like that… he was sowing so much into Cashflo’s kingdom that he ran out of gas a few times and did not have lernch or lernch money. He said he was waiting for his offerings to comeback 30,60, 90 and even 100 folds. The last I heard he got tired of waiting and turned into the biggest freak.

I just realized I will be home, and I don’t think I want to watch the game at home and do all of that cooking mess.
