This experience comes with time and you will have a much more better dating experience compared to a stranger you just met and still figuring out each other. Once you accept that, you have a better shot at both online dating and staying with someone you meet. Dating sites have too much hype. Give your friends dead relationship a little air, and then only with their blessing, date away.

Sadly where I live they are no men so the only choice I had was to go online. It's such a waste of time compared to just screening for someone face to face when you know in a split second you're attracted and would like to go on a date. The options are nearly endless.
