While some people may think that men have it easy when it comes to online dating, they don’t have it as easy as you think. Yes, there are numerous vulnerable women looking for long-term relationships online, but there are also women out there that don’t have the best intentions.
When I spoke to a few men that had been online dating for several months, they all had similar complaints about the types of women they were meeting online. All of the men encountered women that were only looking for “friends” and each of them had stories about the explicit messages they received.
Some of the guys also said that there were women online that weren’t even single. These women either wanted companionship when their boyfriends weren’t around or they simply wanted an online “chat buddy.” Worst of all, three men said they encountered prostitutes. Specifically, one woman’s message read, “Hey handsome, p2p?” When I asked what “p2p” meant, I was told it meant “pay to play.”
So, if you think men have it easy with online dating, think again. Online dating isn’t easy for anyone, there’s going to be a lot of garbage to sift through on these dating sites. But, you shouldn’t let it discourage you from continuing to see if you might meet your Mr. or Mrs. Right online.

Till Next Time,
Heard all that from men I’ve been out with!

It really is unfortunate how many women are using online dating for the wrong reasons.
Thanks for checking out my post and commenting!
Only those creatures they’ve encountered? Well I guess it was early days for them. My two years of dating catalogs the plethora of female players that nobody is talking about.
So, a resounding “YES!”. Online dating isn’t easy for guys either. I’ve proven that, I think.
Compared to your two years, these are definitely the early days of online dating for these men. Feel free to share a link to one of your posts that catalogues the type of women you’ve been meeting through online dating.
Thanks for reading my post and sharing your thoughts!
I humbly submit the following link as an example of what I have had to contend with on the dating scene:
Awesome, thanks for sharing this!
