Answered 96w ago I can relate to this. You're doing it all wrong! I met my current GF on tinder, and I just tell people the way it is. No need to lie, because there's no need to do that. Imagine if you get a girlfriend and you have to explain all the lies you've been telling other people.
Just be a man, tell other people why you are on dating sites. Come on, it's like you don't want to stand by the fact that you are looking for a girlfriend.
It tells more about you when you are lying, than when other people respond to the fact that you are on a dating site. Admit it, there's no need to be ashame. It's common these days that everyone are on dating sites. I wanted to maximise my chances of meeting girls, therefore I chose to create a tinder profile. Hope this helps, I'll be glad to help you further. Marcus Geduld , Former dateless nerd, now 20 years into a relationship.
Are you needy if you say you're in a shoe store to buy shoes? I suggest you tell the truth. That way, people who are compatible with you will continue talking to you, people who aren't won't, and no one's time will be wasted, including your own.
Franklin Veaux , co-author of More Than Two: And not only do you lie, you lie in a way that makes you seem disinterested and unavailable, so if someone is interested in you, she will go elsewhere. Your answer is pretty much guaranteed to make sure you will never find a partner on that site. It's not needy or desperate to say "I'm hoping to find a partner. That's not to say that just because you two agree about relationship goals, you'll immediately click -- that's still the bulk of the work to be done.
But at least you know you're on the same page. Saying 'I just really want a girlfriend. I'm just so lonely and need someone to love me' is going to be a bit less appealing. Speaking strictly from my own experience, reading something on a guy's profile like 'I'm just here because I'm bored' makes me think: Why would I want to talk to someone who's not actually into this? The next step is to communicate what type of dating relationship. This is what they want to know.
Casual dating or short term. May or may not be exclusive, and is not necessarily trying to find the one. Sorta dating for fun, and if it leads to long term then great. Probably not emotionally ready to go serious. Long term or serious relationship. This usually means it's meant to ideally last forever, and lead to marriage or cohabitation.
Definitely want to be emotionally serious, like in the romance movies. This is just long term but I'm cutting to the chase, marriage is the goal, and I may want it soon! These are the main ones. Some guys want to get married and have lots of kids. Women are looking for different things too.
Dating can be dangerous for women, there are some psychos out there.
