Always be yourself, but make it exciting.

Instead of just saying, "Yeah, I go to school and I work", say, "I am pursuing my bachelor's degree in biology and biochemistry. Currently doing a practicum at VGH. Not the most glamorous job, but I'm able to see behind the scene...." or something like that.
Short answers will land you a short date. Not saying you have to blabber on non-stop about yourself, but be engaging and get to the point without being long-winded. The stuff you talk about, it might be cool to you or you have a real opinion about it, but unless it's actually enjoyable for other person to listen to, it's just gonna bored them out.
I have a buddy who just goes on and on when it's a topic he likes to talk about and he goes off to a tangent to explain himself.
"Oh, Las Vegas? I've always heard about it but I have never been there before. Maybe someday. In Nevada. America just seems like a place in decline. I think the reason for it is because of economics. Let me tell you, I think the US system needs to change. But what to change? A party that is willing do what is best for the country. I do not think the current leader will do what's needed......"
And he goes off for like a minute in a slow and steady pace speaking in a monotone voice and in the end, it basically kills the original conversation which is just swapping travel stories (good way to know more about each other).

Long story short.... don't be boring.

dang it A! ... no. :sadno:
might help if I logged on there more than I log onto cdc though.
guess i'm just not invested yet.
screw you! go away! is probably not the correct sentiment entering the dating field.

Are you beating them off with a stick yet? Are any of them beating YOU off?

I signed up for eHarmony and I have been getting like five emails a day for them. This is crazy.

what is this talk of beating.. B)

D, when you meet and marry your dream asian child bride from EH, let me know and I'll dig up some cash and sign up too. ...JR and his marketing!

And no, I haven't logged on in awhile. Couldn't keep up with responding to all the emails/messages and dealing with life too so just.. stopped logging on. I will head back in a bit.. maybe.. just too many social activities with the holiday season.

Any luck on the EH front?

No, I like POF better. It feels more open compared to eHarmony's constant emails, and jumping through hoops on their site.

One of my friends has been finding dates on okcupid. Seems like it's going well so far. I see what you mean about the emails but POF sends them too! Good thing they go to my spam email so aren't a nuisance.

Seriously, the more you use pof the more options you'll get. My mistake was to give one lady my #. The calls and texts have been constant for a week now. I'm sure she will get the message soon though. Not that big of a deal so far.

So no numbers then? Just stick to emails until you weed out the crazy, eh?

I dunno. I'm of the mindset that all women are crazy. Some are just better at masking it for longer periods of time than others.

I can't vouch for it personally, but I've seen this site posted a couple times here and there. I checked it out and it seemed kind of cheesy, but I don't know. Maybe you'll take something away from it.

He has a book as well and even though it seems to be rated pretty well, I've never actually read it so I couldn't tell you much more than that. :P

Yeah, we're super compatible. It amazes me that we aren't already hooking up on the reg.

Edit: and I've only ever had one alternate account. Back when emoticons in usernames would still show up when quoted, I was :mrgreen: (Mr Green)

hey thanks for that I. I think that I might have looked into that company awhile ago when it was featured on tv/news/groupon but maybe it was a diff company. Anyway, I did read through some of the blog posts on there and some of it was interesting.

well, i did take some progressive steps. i closed the chapter on an ongoing irl crush today and i feel relief at coming back into balance. looked at some online profiles and am amazed at how unreal all these people seem. do you really have ALL of those interests and activities?? there are lots of women in canucks jerseys and lots of men holding babies (presumably not their own).

I'm not the most optimistic of people around so I was delighted to have loser/loser chats with my lawyery coworkers yesterday.

Everyone's single, depressed, stressed, struggling to financially support and emotionally support aging parents and lonely as f***.

You know what one guy advised? "Stay away from those online dating sites. Those people are online daters; they're not real."

i loled.
