Rafael:  Do you think that I’m dateable?

Lily:  Sure, I guess. Why do you ask?

Rafael:  I don’t know. I’m just trying not to try too hard, but I just want to date.

Lily:  Have you scanned your dating pool? Are you on any online sites, or…?

Rafael:  Yeah, I’m on all of the sites.

Lily:  All of them?

Rafael:  All of them. I’m really just trying to put myself out there. Trying to be eligible for people to just want to date me.

Lily:  OK. But I feel like you should look for quality over quantity. You want to find the right person, right? So, you don’t need to date a bunch of different people. Unless, I guess you can dictate what you like and what you don’t like. And if you need to date a bunch of people, that’s cool. But you need to be respectful of them.

Rafael:  Lily, answer me this question.

Lily:  What?

Rafael:  Are you taken?

Lily:  Uhh…

I am single. Yes, I use one dating website. I met some good people there. But we stayed just friends. Nothing more. And from my experience i can say dating websites is can’t help you to find your life patner. Friends yes. But nothing more.

I am taken and yes i have used online website many times to find a suitable partner. Online website are very useful to find a partner but it doesnot mean there will be a perfect match as you wont be able to get to know each other much through online. Nowadays people are using online website just for timepass not for any healthy relationship.


i amnot pessimistic but everything has its own pros and cons. good luck

To find a date for a  marriage is not the same thing when we go to do shopping in a supermarket (dating websites)..we cannot buy the true love for a long marriage like a bag of nuts… maybe I am wrong or too old,but that is.. it is necessary the ignition spark….,understood guys ??!!

I’d never throw my profile in an online haystack, hoping to find the needle of my dreams.


I still believe one will find that perfect someone when he/she least expects it :)


Doubts? Have them! Just know I do speak from first-hand experiences :))

to my mind only 10% out of 100 work with online dating, not more. although it’s getting more and more popular and common. Rafael wants to date but my personal belief is that it cannot happen just because u want but it happens mostly accidently :-)) like magic.
