Just throwing this out there....but if you've only been at for 2 weeks, and you have ALREADY had a couple of dates....you might be pushing too fast. I would suggest spending more time learning about the person BEFORE meeting them.

oh, I hear you, but these are both first dates -- coffee dates, and since we're both ok w each other, then we grabbed a bite to eat. I've emailed quite a bit, talked on the phone before committing to the date. I've done some checks, made sure that they work for who they say the work for and googled them. Not sure if I will do a second date with them though... not sure if the chemistry is right. My profile is a bit intimidating, so it takes a certain type of personality to even respond to it (told them that I'm not a party'er)-- I get a number of responses, and I am selective.

I have another 3 other people who I'm emailing with -- all checked out, so we'll see about having first coffee dates with them in the coming weeks. One of them even works for a client of my company and knows some of my co-workers. Another is part of a biking club that I'm in and I know of him through a mutual friend. These are all people that I found on the on-line dating sites.

I'm not looking for a relationship right now, just dating. But if something combustible were to occur, then maybe i will consider longer term.

Good. Sounds like you are proceeding appropriately. Good luck to you.

women in orlando are extremely superficial and money grubbing.i was told once that the reason i cant get a girl is because im "a man who has nothing, so naturally no woman wants you" meeting women in public they are extremely stand offish and ready to blow their police whistles if i even get near them, so i try online dating, not as much pressure but women never respond to my messages

if a 20 yr old guy wants a decent looking girl, he has to be willing to shell out the cash and shell out cash BIG TIME! if i do go on a date with a girl, i take at LEAST $100 for it

a lot of women my age also think that i am ugly, and dont like my intelligent personality, the only seem to care about clothes, the new lady gaga song, and the jersey shore show (snooky is pretty cute though not gonna lie)

when women stop acting this way is when i will become active in the dating game again

the guys who do get the girls are the guys who drive the g35s their parents bought for them, where ed hardy clothes, have tattoos and are usually hispanic. all the hispanic dudes get girls here, and the black dudes. white guy get nothing, or the fat girls

i dont bother anymore, women are not worth my time nor the effort
