We are a welcoming community that understands the trials and pitfalls of managing a mental illness.
Find friends or seek romantic relationships knowing that everyone on this site has some form of mental illness. Boy were they expensive and when I did get a date (didn't happen a lot) things got complicated when it came to disclosing my illness.
Millions of Americans visit online dating websites every year, hoping to find a companion or even a soul mate.But today, on Valentine’s Day, we want to warn you that criminals use these sites, too, looking to turn the lonely and vulnerable into fast money through a variety of scams.For weeks, even months, you may chat back and forth with one another, forming a connection. But ultimately, it’s going to happen—your new-found “friend” is going to ask you for money.So you send money…but rest assured the requests won’t stop there.There will be more hardships that only you can help alleviate with your financial gifts.

All they have to do is get online every day, sitting on their princess throne and file through the dozens or more profiles of men who have messaged them throughout the day.
The problem with online dating is that you can’t see the person’s face when they’re telling you about themselves. I think it’s hard for guys to comprehend the world of online dating from a woman’s perspective. They then flippantly toss out all of those well thought out, carefully crafted messages from most of those poor schmucks, and then they log onto their Facebook accounts to complain to their girlfriends that there are no “good men” left in the world.
I don’t know, maybe some girls might think of that as a compliment but personally, I would have preferred a simple message like, “Hey, would you like to talk?
