    it was pretty hilarious how frustrated I was getting when I compared the woman in Canada to the women in Scotland on Okcupid for the most part.

    Check out Carlisle.

    Unless this is a situation where it turns out all the nice women came out of the woodwork in time for me to nuke my account

    haha I saw someone who looked cute then I saw shes from Sunderland which I doubt v much doubt is within 25 miles of Carlisle

    Back in high school, I dated a girl that I met on the internet.

    That was a pretty bad idea.

    ok, actual concern i have, internet dating thread on the internet

    so the aforementioned lass, is of a... larger body type than i'm used to, which is to say, my ex.
    and that's not really fair, since my ex is also a terrible partner and i shouldn't care

    and i certainly find people attractive for a myriad of reasons, physical appearance being only part of it
    and and she is very pretty, has beautiful eyes, and by no means is unhealthy or anything

    i guess i'm just trying to figure out how to get over being marginally shallow when i know it's stupid because of deep-seated baggage about acceptable body types (since my ex basically said i was overweight and not attractive, thanks)

    something something

    Are you saying you're not attracted to her body or...? I'm a bit confused. There is nothing wrong with having a preference for body types.

    well

    it's just not what i'm used to, so it's less desirable, i guess? but i just hate that because otherwise i feel like we get along very well so far

    and i don't want to be a shallow fuckwit

  • LiiyaLiiya Registered User regular
    edited July 2011
    Oh okay, I see now.

    The difference between a friendship and relationship is attraction. You need to think about whether you are physically attracted to her enough, or if you just see her as a friend with a pretty face. Getting along is fine, but it needs more than that.

    So have a think about it, its not being shallow if you're not attracted to her enough. If you are, great! If not, time to think about things.

    yep! words of wisdom

    It aint necesarily a sudden instant thing either tho red. I mean in my case I knew i thought my GF was pretty straight off, but the attraction between us was a... sortof slow growing thing. And she was definitely very different (in every sense) t the girl I dated before her

    So yeah, think about it.. just keep in mind that what yuo also want is the potential for attraction, so dont overthink it as a bad thing if you're not already dazed and dizzy just thinking about her. But if you dont think you have that potential, yeah time to think about things.

    V is right, attraction can grow, rather that hit you like a ton of bricks. I should have mentioned that in my last post really.

    I have met two girls through the internet that resulted in committed relationships.

    One went disastrously bad- worse than you can imagine.

    The other went great! Next month will be five years we've been together.

    I might my girlfriend on myspace! Like, I literally sent out a boiler-plate style message to a bunch of girls, and she was one of three that replied, one of two I actually started talking to on the phone, and the first I met in person.

    We pretty much started dating the day we met, because it was just there.

    I once, no word of a lie, ended up meeting some based off our shared presence in a fanfiction forum.

    yeah, that's pretty awesome

    this ex of mine got increasingly obsessed with one of those shitty turn-based browser games where you roam around a little grid city (by clicking things, there's no graphics to speak of) and it was vampire themed

    but the insane forum community about this stupid game was staggering
    and her vampire character like.. married or hooked up with some dude's vampire character
    until it got basically out of hand and she was internet cheating on me with some dude in belguim

    who she flew out to see after i dumped her

    I'll probably catch flak for this but

    If you're not attracted to someone you're unlikely to become attracted to them, and it's silly to stick overlong with a relationship that doesn't drain blood from your brain to your, erm, alternative reasoning center, regardless of its chromosomal configuration

    but it doesn't sound like that's what's happening here

    it sounds more like Red is at least somewhat attracted to this person but is kinda weirded out by the fact that she's not what he's used to

    I just mean, and excuse my vulgarity, and ignore this if you have some moral objection to sex before marriage or sex before a "serious relationship," but

    maybe try slapping her titties around once or twice or whatever you're into before you decide whether it's something that's awkward because it's different or unappealing because you're not attracted to her

    and if it's the latter, just bail. Ain't shame in that.

    I'm getting a different vibe from that matter. I'm getting that Red has a little bit of emotional baggage from his ex, that's giving him a hard time ignoring her body type, whether or not he's attracted to her. It's kind of like if your parents raised you to believe that smoking was evil, and you met someone who smoked, even if it didn't actually bother you, you may have difficulty because of all the fucked up lung pictures your parents showed you when you were a kid.
