about 2 years ago I signed up to OkCupid and PoF, I went on about 5 dates (3 OkCupid, 2 PoF)
First one - Everything was going really well, he did leave out quite a huge detail which was that he had a son, but told me before we actually went on a date. Everything went really well, and then he just didn't text me and that was it, never heard of spoke to him again.
Second one - Met up, went out for a day together but it just wasn't there, he was a really lovely but there was just nothing between us.
Third guy - Seemed a really nice guy, more forward than the others and I liked that as I'm quite shy, we met up a few times and then it just became really obvious he was trying to get me into bed and when it wasn't working he stood me up, I did confront him about a week later and he just said "well what did you expect from a dating site?".
Fourth Guy - He was closer to my age than the other guys were and we had more common interests, but when we met up there was just nothing at all between us.
On the train home from that date I decided I wasn't going to do this anymore, but then I got a text. I forgot completely I'd given my number to this guy, but he didn't seem all that interested and I didn't think anything of it and assumed after the short text conversation we had that that was going to be it, but then he text me and asked me to go out with him.
So Number Five - He was almost 6 years older than I was, older than I'd ever thought I'd date, but we had a fantastic date and I didn't want it to end and neither did he, so we met up then next day and had another great day, and then the day after I ended up staying the night at his and we spent the day after together too and then that was it, my friends love him, my parents love him and I love him. we were a couple. Two years later we're engaged and trying to decided where we're going to buy our house.
I know there aren't many like stories more like that but it did work out for me, I didn't have much hope but it did go well and I'm really happy that I met him and I know we wouldn't actually have met without it.
