      If so, they’re doing a darn good job of hiding from me!

    I love this post. I think there is great comedic value in online dating. I sure hope you manage to get past the crazies and find someone to keep you warm at night. I so applaud your adventures with your son. You are both amazing. I would be happy if my son manages even half the experiences of your little guy. Happy Travels to you both <3

      Thanks for the kind words! And yes, there is a LOT of comedic value in online dating. I think I may start saving the majority of the entertaining ones for a compilation later. 😀

    I’m sorry to hear this isn’t working out for you. The heartache must suck pretty bad!

    I have my fingers crossed for you meeting Mr. Right. 🙂

      I wouldn’t say it isn’t working out. At least I’m getting a lot of entertainment from it. 😀 Keep those fingers crossed!

    Oh Talon, you’re fun has just begun. I have been online dating off and on for the last 15 years, one connection led to a 7 year live-in relationship, and another led to an 8-month live-in relationship (pure emotional hell). I have read lots and lots of profiles over the years, they are very interesting reading. Oddly enough I have never been stood up (this in around 20 meets, so not too bad), and only 1 person was not interested in meeting again, which was okay with me. I made the rule that I will not meet without at least one phone conversation first, helps to weed out the total freaks. I always set up the time and place, usually daytime with lots of people around, and absolutely no alcohol (helps keep me from doing something totally stupid). I have read that the more serious folks use paid sites but I have actually more luck with the free ones. My current relationship is from online, 2+ years so far. I am actually enjoying this one, no co-habitation which is nice, neither of us is pushing for that. He lives about one and one-half hours away in a really cool house in the sticks, it’s like going to a bed & breakfast every weekend. I don’t have a lot of horror stories for you, for me it has been a pleasant experience (maybe I just have really good weirdo radar). At any rate I wish you good luck – A good man is hard to find but they do exist.

      Cool you’ve had so much success with it! Your B&B comment made me chuckle.

    Ha ha, you are very much not alone. I have received ‘interesting photos’ been sort of stood up and had the one guy who turned up for a dinner date and then refused to order anything to eat and then he spent the last half hour of the date complaining about being hungry! I’m considering becoming a nun!!

    Which site are you using, may I ask, Talon? A doesn’t surprise me at all, but B and C are a little more unusual! At the very least, this all certainly makes for a good story!

      Definitely make for some good entertainment. I’ve been using PlanetRomeo (formerly known as GayRomeo) and OKCupid (which has been an absolute bust so far).

    Ha! Tis is such a good post. I’ve given up dating full stop (online or not).
    I’m of the philosophy that if someone comes along and it’s meant to turn into a relationship, then it will.
    Meantime, I enjoy my friends and travelling.
    Would love to hear more of your funny tales from the internet though, I bet you could write a book.

      It has definitely been entertaining so far. Every so often I give up on dating and end up coming back and giving it another go. I don’t know why yet. Maybe I just an occasional something else to make me laugh.
