We just talked about this in Abnormal Psych class the other day. "men who are addicted to internet dating sites" --- frankly, not enough information to back that up, imo.How people, men and women BOTH go from one site to another. You are online too, by the way, looking for a man while you are dating this one. Did you meet him before joining this elite group on POF, or found him here in that short amount of time? Your question should be narrowed down to just this one man -- not men. I'm sure a lot of men, and women too, use these social sites simply as a form of entertainment and interaction.I looked the other way while he ignored me to be on Face Book as long as I could.I have a Face Book profile but rarely go into Face Book.I dated one lady who took exception to my interest in the forums...she thought that accessing a singles' site I must be trolling for a hook up..He talks on the feed lines while driving on the expressway, dining, walking his dogs, and at his job. He has reunited with all of his class mates from 30 years ago.His I-Phone is programmed to chime when he picks up a message on Face Book. I would say that Face Book is his number one top priority to him.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
I want to live life by being active and out into the world.
I come in here early in the morning just to visit the forums. I know women..are addicted to dating sites, because they get attention. If someone has an addictive personality.will inhabit online venues.
Perhaps you are justified to let him know that the amount of time he spends on dating websites does disturb you, as the intent of such sites is to make connections.
You think it appropriate the he does suspend his actions.
lol Maybe they sit there and think they are sexy & they know it kinda thing.... It sounds like something is just not adding up here. I don't think attention seekers outgrow it until they deal with the insecurities that drive them to seek the validation they feel they need. You are "dating" this man you say is addicted to sites like this one and obviously this bothers you -- even though he doesn't connect or date any of them. It's a real buzz to have all that attention with no strings attached..may find it hard to compete.
