Been hibernating all winter, what now?

So for the past 6-8 months, I've been working, working out, etc.

 

I was only hanging out with a couple of groups of my closest friends. Basically, not exactly open to meeting new people.

 

Since summer's here, I'm taking a nice, deserved break from work.

 

Too late, I realized that most of my friends work, quite a lot. Since many are in school, etc. So.. I need to meet more people.

 

I'm opening up all venues, so I'm expanding my circle through friends and through the Internet.

 

Now, here's the trouble. Face-to-face, when I meet new people, it's easy for me to make friends. I'm social. Not enough people are met, of course, since as I've said, I can only meet up with buddies on days off, and it's always chaotic to find days that fit.

 

On these websites, like that PlentyOfFish one, it's a whole different story. I'm not exactly sure how to approach anyone, since I'm not sure how people try to spontaneously generate relationships and friendships with pure strangers out of thin air.

 

So... what do I say? Say I found someone that seems pretty interesting, and I'd potentially want to meet this person. I've learned from a line of work related to my work that on meeting sites, any and most girls will be getting like, 20 emails a day. The fact that I'm not exactly sure how people meet people on the net doesn't help.

Hey! Good to see you around still

 

And I've been trading a tad. Mostly I've been working with a couple of Asian clients. Big money.

 

But.. Hell, I've no idea how to make small talk with someone on a website. I mean.. I've zero idea how I'd approach someone on the Internet

 

That's really my entire question. How do I approach to differ from the 20 other emails.

well theres a few way.. pics always good.. but more importantly find out about her thru her profile. they usaly list hobbies, intrest, education whatever... find something you have in common with her.. and send a in depth passionate e-mail.. example she writes about traveling.. you share your love of traveling.. tell her were you have traveled and were you would like to..

 

online dating is a numbers game.. you might send 10 e-mails and only get a few back... just be yourself.. and keep trying...

 

i have never tried onlide dating i always have succeses getting dates, at bookstores, grocery stores, bars.. anywhere in public woman are everywhere.. i find it easier just to see them, walk up introduce myself, feel her out and see if we would click.. its much more accurate then online dating... you could talk to someone for weeks online and meet in person and never click...

Lol, I'm not really even looking for any sort of relations. I keep that on the low simply because I left my ex after we spent New Years in Mexico, and I haven't really been able to feel right about dating anyone for longer than the night

 

The only reason I'd be looking around for a couple of new friends from the sites is because I need to get away from my stereotypical circles. I'm getting bored. And if your circle entails a certain kind of people, you're SOL trying to find someone outside of it.

 

That, and I get along with women much better than I do with guys. My female to male buds ratio would be at least 8:1. Don't know why that's so, but I figure it's not a bad thing.

No no no. Lol, girls. Girls. Guys... hell, I have enough guy friends. I've been up since 6 today working, so I may have screwed my words a bit there.

 

Oh, by the way. Just my luck. I signed up for that POF like, yesterday, and one of my female buds found me on it
