For all of you living in small towns, Internet dating does not offer you as much as if you lived in a big city like Philadelphia, New York, Chicago or LA. It does pose a dilemma but it doesn’t mean you can’t find a match. You’ll just have to try harder and be more perseverant. Okay, you may have to move to a big city!
What you have to do is check in regularly. The down side of that is everyone on the site will see you so often that pretty much they won’t care about you. Initially, you are “new meat,” and that seems to be what everyone is looking for. Once that new and intriguing person joins your dating service you can have first crack, but only if you were there fast enough. This doesn’t mean you have to stay up all night waiting for someone new to join, but you have to work the system. You snooze, you lose. It is rather odd at how many people are on these sites at all hours of the night. I guess they already figured out this “new meat” strategy.
Another remedy would be to search a little farther away from where you live. Don’t try this if you don’t like to drive much. There is something called GU. I had no idea what this meant until I asked a woman who refused me because I was GU. Thank God it didn’t mean goofy and ugly! It means geographically undesirable. Right!! You live too far away. Only you can be the judge of what’s too far away. Just remember that relationships are difficult enough without the hassle of travel. Actually, if you are far away and can’t see each other too often you won’t get tired of each other like you have gotten tired of seeing the same old faces on your small town Internet dating service website.
One sure sign of desperation is trying to date someone requiring plane trips to see one another. I really don’t get why a woman in North Dakota would contact me in A.C. to go on a date. Has she really used up all the North Dakotans? Maybe so. There can’t be all that many!
Next time let’s explore more tricks and details about the fabulous world of Internet dating.
