New To Online Dating

When a guy says, "I'm new to online dating" in an email, text, profile, etc, he lands in my recycling bin.  It's like a girl on her way home from a one night stand saying, "I never do this."  In both cases, too much justification.


  1. It could be genuine though, even if it's a bit cheesy and defensive. It's one thing to say that after a one-night stand. It's another thing to admit up front that online dating is a new frontier for you - maybe you were coupled up for the last 10 years, or maybe you just moved to a new city. Even though you and I are all over dating sites, I know LOTS of people who would have never even considered it until circumstances drove them there.

    I would give these guys a chance if all other factors seemed promising.

  2. I think I'd like this rather than the guys who have been on there for years.
