Our pickiness will probably increase.”“Above all, Internet dating has helped people of all ages realize that there’s no need to settle for a mediocre relationship.”From "A Million First Dates How online romance is threatening monogamy" in January/February 2013” ― Dan Slater, “Having a date with someone other than your ex-wife after being a married man for more than twenty five years was an important occasion alright, but wearing a tie she bought with such strong emotional value attached to it was a form of cowardice, a subconscious reluctance to let go.” ― Vann Chow, tags: after-it-ends, american, ashamed, coward, cowardice, dating, divorce, emotional-value, ex, ex-wife, japan, letting-go, letting-of-the-past, love, marriage, moving-forward, old-couple, online-dating, relationship-quotes, shamefulness, tie, tokyo, undying-love, wake-up, white-man-and-the-pachinko-girl “It's kind of freaky to send your picture over the Internet to someone you don't really know and then have to sit waiting for their judgement on how you look.
Maybe that's why my aunt Penny, who got divorced two years ago, hates online dating so much.
Such a feeling of access affects our pursuit of love …
the whole world (versus, say, the city we live in) will, increasingly, feel like the market for our partner(s).
“Taken from the dedication in my debut novel Exactly 23 days. For women everywhere: When you know you are finally mended, spread the word, hold out your hand, share some love from your heart and some laughter from your soul and be there for a new member of the sisterhood who needs your help.
Let's all help our sisters worldwide to stand tall and know, they can and they will recover, survive and thrive, to live the life they deserve.
Nevertheless, the following pick up lines, all culled from various internet sources, have provided incurable romantics with thousands of opening remarks to help negotiate coupling success.

In other words, a woman living in the next town over from you, about 10 minutes away, has the exact same odds of responding to your opener as a woman living in a town 50 minutes away, all other variables remaining equal. They drop sharply if they’re more than seven, drop even more if they’re more than ten, and drop even more if they’re over 15. I hate to use the 1-to-10 scale because it’s so subjective, but I’m talking here about women who are around an 8 but not a 9, 10, 6, or 7.
As an example, when I message women under 25 my response rate is often 5% or less, but if I message women in their late 30s, my response rate can easily be 25-35%, depending on the site, the profile text, and the photos that I’m testing. I have several theories as to why this holds true most of the time, but your guess is as good as mine.
But otherwise, you are welcome to quote from it or share it with others.
You can also upload a copy of the document to your own site, as long as you include a link back here and don’t change the content.
Today I’m going to list all of the aspects of the women you’re messaging on an online dating site which will affect, positively or negatively, your odds that she will respond to your opener. Important note: I am talking here about normal online dating sites, sugar daddy sites. If the name of the town or neighborhood on her profile is exactly the same as yours, and it’s spelled the exact same way, odds of response go up. This is another interesting one, and many other men have reported this so I know it’s not just me.
