On my last job--and the one I'm trying for now--I worked 12 hour shifts on my feet with two 15 minute breaks, time permitting, and a mandatory half hour for lunch. I'm not going to spend any of it texting or talking on the phone.I'm going to get off my feet and relax while I can.After a few months of this, I decided that quicker was better - since I discovered that no matter what I thought of the person, until I met them and could be face to face, I didn't know squat.I could be incredibly attracted by their picture, their profile, the words they used in emails, even their voice and conversation, but more often than not, it all changed once face to face.Please register to participate in our discussions with 2 million other members - it's free and quick!Some forums can only be seen by registered members.After you create your account, you'll be able to customize options and access all our 15,000 new posts/day with fewer ads. I recently tried on-line dating in hopes of genuinely meeting someone.However, every contact wants me to call him by the 2nd message - and doesn't appear to have even read my profile.
Once he saw me, we did have coffee (or some beverage).. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum.

I also met my guy through the online dating arena and he felt the same way I did about phone calls and meeting.I prefer to hold off on exchanging numbers until I have established that he is someone I actually want to meet. I did have to change my number due to a wacko calling me at all hours for a while, so I am even more apprehensive about giving a number out so quickly.Texting is not my favorite way to communicate but sometimes, you can tell a lot about the person, like a person who will text you 10 times, before you can respond to one of her/his texts is obviously not someone you want to meet, lol I have been texting a woman for about a week now, and she would flip out every time It took me more than 10 minutes to answer her (definitely a red flag), definitely not even wasting my time with this one Meeting is really the best and the only way to see people for who they truly are Ridiculous.But I guess it's a good way to weed out the undesirables.We text for a few days or about a week, then set a time and date to meet.
