Since our inception in 2004, we have been focused on real people and real relationships.We believe that finding someone special is one of the crucial elements of life.So I really don't know what to tell you - are you being pushy in some way about the meeting? People are flakey though just put it down to experience and move on. I can't say I've had that problem, a few I have just carried on conversations with, a couple seemed like they wanted to push it along faster and initiated messages everyday, so I went ahead and ask them out. There tons of folks...their own reasons....just want an email romance. "If you're not to busy this week, would you like to meet up and grab a bite to eat or a drink? But, that was the end of the conversation with her.And now, there's the lover who seems interested only in an ‘elationship.’ When it comes to online dating, we’ve come to expect deception, the posting of decades-old pictures and blatant lies about marital status, height, hair (or lack thereof).We’ve learned to deal with people who dematerialize after a few days or weeks of steady contact.

Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... You never know when is the best to move from emails to the phone.cabana, no doubt about it. I just can't figure out why people would join a dating site with no intention of ever meeting up.Greg was a pen pal, like the faraway friends you’d write to as a child. To him, Lucy was an attractive app-quaintance and their flirtation began and ended with a ‘sent’ notification.She was stuck in the electronic age’s version of the dreaded dating friend-zone and she is one of many women on the receiving end of the guys doing it.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. Several women I have been chatting with lately have been a bit strange. Like an earlier poster said, to raise confidence I guess. Typical inaccurate generalization by the unsuccessful. (shakes head) I almost always mention meeting by the 3rd message or have them on the phone by then. They almost always respond positively, want to meet, plan the date, and they all actually show up, and look like their pics.We'll e-mail back and forth for a week or two, but as soon as I mention anything about meeting for a drink or cup of coffee or anything, they tend to shy away. Not everyone I've met on here have been like that, but it seems the percentage is increasing. I have had people just disappear during the messaging stage but never once a meet up has been suggested. Sometimes I think some of the people posting in the forums are on a different site.
