That’s why it would seem niche online dating sites for people with STDs would be a welcoming breath of fresh air.
Online dating isn't easy. It requires dealing with a certain amount of challenges and annoyances, and often requires sustained effort before you meet someone promising. However, when you're faced with too many annoyances and what seems like endless sustained effort, you may come down with a good case of online dating burnout. And when you do, your dating success will decrease. Here are some signs you suffer from online dating burnout:
The other day I had a couple of girlfriends over. We had some wine and laughs and one of my friends pulled up her online dating account to show who had been contacting her (laughs continued). We were scrolling through one of the features where the site suggests people it thinks you may be interested in. A picture of a dark haired, blue-eyed guy that lived about 20 miles away popped up. He looked handsome, normal. But something felt weird, I said, "He looks like Wyatt's friend, the asshole one."

Confession time again. My delayed tears have been flowing when I finally couldn't repress and deny how it felt. The fact is, my honorary older brothers were adamant, when a guy says he wants to be friends it's not a good thing. My problem is that I told myself I wasn't hurt. When I finally admitted to myself that I was.... floodgates. Had I allowed myself to face my letdown it would not have come to this.

Beyond POF.com, OKCupid, and eHarmony, the dating site Miss Travel is a matchmaking site where the guy pays for everything, including a travel companion. The trick is, the website doesn't do a background check on the men, or the women, and you meet for the first time at the vacation spot.
