"Imagine looking over tens of thousands of personal ads in order to exchange thousands of emails, to get to hundreds of phone calls, to then set 32 coffee dates. Because I work professionally in the Internet technology industry, using online dating and matching services came very easily to me – or, at least it was natural, but it was also exhausting. I am the kind of man who is driven. You know – Mr. Type A+. So, when my marriage failed, I moved into an apartment I found myself looking for love again online. I’m just not one to waste time. "
"Imagine meeting 32 very different women for coffee in less than nine months, then dating a few of them: nurses, psychologists, attorneys, school teachers, a couple of legal secretaries, a surf shop owner, a veterinarian, a flight attendant, a model, several real estate agents, and on and on. Some were nice and some were very nice, but off in a world of their own. Imagine that, and you’ll be right there with me because that is what I went through in just one year’s time."
"I officially re-ignited my online romance adventure in December 2004. Online dating then was much better than what I had experienced six years earlier, when I had just tried it once. As aforementioned, that previous experience led to a one-year long-distance romance and a brief yet stressful marriage of four years. Six years doesn’t seem like a long time, but I felt like I’d been “gone” an eternity – in Internet dating terms. Yet it was just six years later that I thought it would be best to look for a woman who was the exact opposite from my ex – again, a kind of an experiment in getting more of what I wanted – but, boy, was I wrong in that strategy."
"I was surprised to see several women from Match and Yahoo on the site, so I contacted them with a few questions. One was kind enough to answer. She said she did not know what kind of site it was; I thought she must be blind. The site was and is filled with sexually explicit images. I contacted about 20 women on Alt.com, but the three who contacted me on their own were the ones I actually met. These women wanted to learn about or live an alternate lifestyle where they were slaves at some level to their man. Wow, that is a mouthful. Did I just say they wanted to live as a slave to their man? I wondered just what a woman who wanted this would be like. What goes through her mind?"
