Online dating when to take the profile down
The man I'm dating who's so enthusiastic still disagrees with me about leaving the profile up.
I told him that I didn't want to lose my "if you don't find someone in six months, you get six months free" option by taking it down (that voids the free six month offer), in case we dated for two months and then it ended.
I remember I did change my status to "in a relationship" at some point (years ago, even prior to my current relationship). I'm the one who started the original thread that prompted Green Bean to start this one.
I just posted an update to that other thread, but part of that update related to this one.
A couple of years pass and I get married and he writes back to say that he hadn't seen my message and I wrote just about a week after he had given up on internet dating because he hadn't gotten a single response to his profile. And a good number of them don't make a hard distinction between the two.
(And on How About We, you should probably consider not posting new dates once you're starting to get serious about someone.)You can still get away with keeping your profile up in the early stages of dating someone, or even longer if you've come to a mutual agreement about the relationship, or you're just dating casually.
But the moment you start dating someone exclusively, the profile has got to come down.
He said he doesn't care about the money, and I said that I do care.
He offered to put the cost of six months' membership in a sealed envelope and give it to me; then if it didn't work out, I could use that to pay for the other six months - and if it did, we'd use the money to go out to dinner I had to laugh at that one.
