So back when I was young there was none of this online dating stuff the closest we had was the party line(dial up phone chat).
I kind of like the old way (making eye contact across the room ect) never tried online before. What do you perfer?

    Meeting people in real life. It is far more powerful imo

    I prefer meeting in real life, getting to know a person face to face. You can have a connection with someone online and then when you meet they turn out to be completely different to the idea you have of them in your head. 🤯

    This sounds too well thought out to be a theory ;)

    Also I'd just like yo say that I'm so glad that this thread is more comprehensible than the title :smiley: :D

    I’ve always met people the organic way, through friends or co-workers where we got to know one another a bit and there’s an actual connection. I’d not feel comfortable with online dating or meeting people I don’t know at all. Maybe in a group setting I would.

    Bru. What are you talkin' bout?

    I was teasing you about mocking his English whilst then saying "coming at women". Also talking about Daniel and saying "coming at women" is amusing, to me anyway.

    Yeah, sometimes it's easier to meet people online, get to know them, and then meet in real life to see if the chemistry is there too.

    I've never done online dating sites but I've talked to a lot of people online. I'm pretty shy and self conscious in real life and online made it easier to talk to people.

    And, seriously, it's no more dangerous to meet someone online and then in person and have them turn out to be an axe murderer or married or a different person altogether than it is to meet someone in a grocery store. Not only people online misrepresent themselves.

    I think you can meet people just fine either way. I have friends who have been with their partners for years who they met online from half a world away. Conversely, many people I know still meet the traditional way. I think the bonus to on-line dating is that geographically speaking, you open up a whole world of potential to yourself and get to meet people that you wouldn’t have otherwise. The caveat is, obviously, that you have to be wise enough to realize that not everyone is who they say they are online. Pros and cons to both.

    @caco_ethes

    Same here.

    I would say more on the subject..... but my agent, team of advisors and security detail are waiting.

    We'll be boarding my private jet soon, on the way to a tropical location to begin filming my latest Hollywood Megahit.
