Overcoming Problems With Dating
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!


I wanted to find a way to meet new women, yet with all the things going on in my life, where and how represented my first problems. Overcoming the problems with dating for anyone can be difficult. I ran into a few different problems, and at times was ready to throw in the towel!

I started trying some online websites, and being new at this stumbled across many I could not afford as I had no credit card. I finally found several free dating sites, signed up and filled in my profiles. I sent out messages to a few members the first day, and was surprised how quick the responses came in. I continued contact with a few who wanted to go through regular email and im, and felt I may be on the right track.

So far overcoming the problems with dating seemed not that big a deal, you know. I am not very good with computers online, yet I found the free websites, figured out how to upload my picture, (yes, it makes a huge difference!) and even had instant messenger installed to chat with women. The first problem was my pride. Some women thought I was not their type. Go figure!

Several women and I were chatting on the websites, when we changed over to my regular e mail and instant messenger. I had checked the profiles of every woman prior to chatting with them, this way I could communicate about their interests. I thought that would increase my chances of a date. I was surprised at how many women had listed their address as here in the states, yet were actually in a foreign country. Talk about overcoming problems with dating! I would need an airplane or a boat to date these women! For me, that’s not even within reach. I kept emailing and chatting, hoping it might lead some where. The pictures of these women, and the kind things they said, their touching stories, had me going for a while.

Every one of them eventually asked me to pay for their trip to the US so they could be with me. Now, I`m 50 years old and no fool, I recognize a scam when I see one. I wouldn`t go for any of it. The next problem with dating I had, was women who were confused about what they wanted. I had over 200 emails and text with one girl over a few weeks, several times we were to meet, several times she cancelled. I thought we were both looking for a long term relationship, yet at the end she did not want to meet. This drove me crazy, as I really wanted to meet several women who kept cancelling dates. I learned that if you’re not dating in less than 10 days, you’re wasting your time.

By overcoming the problems with dating, not giving up, I eventually had a few dates and then I finally met the woman of my dreams.. And the most amazing part is she found me! Overcoming the problems with dating requires courage and perseverance. Meeting strange people at strange places, trying new things, trusting someone else, and overcoming all the self doubt is quite an accomplishment. And the rewards are worth it!
