I'm new to this but the weirdness metrics divide between (1) those wanting a financial relationship rather than a social relationship and (2) those berating me for what their ex did and (3) those who just disappear

On-line dating is more than a bit weird, so expect a bunch of wingnuts and loons. The challenge is to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Disclosure: I met my wife on an on-line dating site. We met 19 years ago and have been married 17 years.

In Doha it is a fairly common way to meet. One reason is that it does allow you some ability to sort out the less desirable.

Do note that a large majority of the females seeking males are from Asian countries and with impoverished backgrounds so some element of support is rarely far below the surface. I've seen this in all sorts from the very basic just plain poor gals to even those with decent education and jobs of some status, just the way it is.

OK Cupid and Twoo are both sites you can try. Tinder seems a crass joke.

Isn't tinder for kids?

I also met my hubby on line. At the time it was kiss.com that merged with match.com.
We've been together 15 years! Married for 8!

I had some very strange encounters then hubby just seemed "normal". I love him to bits.

Good luck and have a bit of fun. If you try to hard you'll not find "the one".

What are you looking for, from the dating experience? Though in my experience relationships begun as an expat don't seem to survive long term.

If casual or medium term hook-ups are your thing, then you should be able to fill your boots

Tinder used to be OK now its more like:

African hookers 25%
African ladies pretending not to be hookers but actually are hookers 10%
Chinese hookers 15%
Filipinas 20% of which are hookers 10%
Russians 15% of which are gold diggers 12%
Randoms no's 10%
Normals 4% (of which 2% don't chat when matched)
Trannies 1%

Percentages are estimated, through survey not undertaken.
