I have so many questions being a first timer on a dating site. How did you do it? Did you contact him first or did he contact you? I don't mean to be nosy, but i am clueless how to do this! Any advice would help! To Three_03

Quoting leogal:

To "Three 03,

I'm new to this site, so I am wondering how your trip to Texas went.  Was it a positive experience, or one that didn't go so well?    It's nice to hear of a happy ending, but also good to know what to look out for, from others who have gone through all this.

Looking for happy trails...



hi. if you would like to know please write..I will answer your questions that way

Blimey,counsellor had 2 l's in it when I went to school.Could be a rip off but most of the shielas I look at haven't got a horse or can't ride.A lot of them wouldn't know one end of a horse from another.I just look for some one to have a ride with and hang around with,not to be a support crew for a bimbo and her kids.Is this too much to ask/

I agree with some of what you are saying. But I must say I have only been on this site for about two weeks. This is my first time ever to try a date site so I was not going to pay for it. So instead I submitted a tip and was rewarded with a month free PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP.  I have met some one here 2 days after I joined,we hit off pretty good,I ran a back ground check and everything turned out normal  lol  So now in a week I am headed to Texas to meet maybe the man of my dreams. Dont give up, there is some one out there for all of us. We just have to be patient and wait for God to cross our paths withsome one good then He leaves the rest up to us.. Just be your self regardless. One thing I see people doing is trying to be extra super nice which is ok but start from the start and speak your mind.Your likes, dislikes and so on. If some one is offended by your straighforwardness then too bad they need to go bye bye and arent worth your time..

I have been on this site and a few others for the past year and haven't found anyone. Most are too far away and I don't want to start a long distance relationship. Been there done that and it don't work very well. I'm about ready to give up myself. I get lonly too, but Im not going to settle for 2nds. Lifes too short. Maybe someday I'll meet Mr. Right. Wish me Luck!

Dear Wanda, I love your attitude. I am a counselor for Equestrian Cupid, and many people that write to me are very negative and impatient when it comes to meeting someone. I can only try to encourage these people and try to help them get over their pessimistic reasoning. Thank you for your vote of encouragement. It soon becomes contagious. Gary

This site is a ripoff of the original EquestrianSingles.com. They deliberately try to fool people. Luckily I found out before I paid a membership. And they do recurring billing. They do nothing to protect members from scammers. The real equestriansingles.com is vigiliant about warning members. If you don't want to be billed every month you need to cancel the membership.

I posted this on mymulegus's blog first but it kind of fits here too Main thing I see is that many women that come up in my searches are GONE. Haven't been on the site in 2 weeks or a month or more and don't think they plan to come back. I have emailed couple no response.I guess Iam at a disavantage because I smoke not much but I do. Looking for smoker so I don't hear nagging about the habit. Also there are not many women looking for a Man my age. So with two strikes against me I may have just wasted my time and money being here. My choice is bars which I don't do, being here, or alone which may happen anyway. LOL Bottom line is we ( the real people on this site) would like to find someone to connect to but given the scum scammers and lack of people who stay with it for any time I would say chances are slim to none! Wish it isn't so BUT well time will tell. I do wish you and the other real people out there much luck with their seach. I will continue mine for awhile here. How long ????? Micheal

I want to agree with what Wanda has to say.  I have been on different dating sites with mixed results.  E is one and everytime I am paired up with someone, I read their profile and then if interested I send my five questions to start the communication process.  This site is very much like submitting a resume. Rejection comes hard and swift and you have no way of asking why, whats wrong with me.  I looked like a good canidate, why was I rejected? This cowboy cupid site has yielded one smashing good friend and one riding buddy from too far away. I have encountered several scammers and chat with a few everyonce and a while.  This site was recommended to me by a girlfriend: I think of myself as a normal person who has horses and likes to do things with horses.  My ex was afraid of horses.  Well they are bigger than a dog but I can't ride my dog. I am not a trainer and I am not country.  The only time I listen to country music is during a break up or during a divorce! Back on track, I am starting to wander. I just filled out information for Ma.  I guess Dr. Phill recommends this site.  I do find more people in my area.  I do live in the sticks so to speak. I have not put down any money yet but it looks as if I will have to if I want to respond to anyone. Well what ever avenue you use for meeting different people has its flaws. Just be careful and have a good time.

It seems that once a guy gets his feeelins hurt..he's nervous about committing.  They forget that women have been hurt too and we are told to keep positive.  When we were young and foolish we didn't place expectations on someone we were interested in.  We just  jumped in and gave our hearts.  As adults we are always looking for red flags.

I too agree..its staying positive thru it all...I just signed up and i had 5 look at my profile but no emails or winks yet...I on the other hand winked and emailed a few but still no response. I guess time will tell. I also agree its so hard to show the true you on here...Picture speaks a thousand words but talking is just talk. I am a honest and sincere person who loves my horses and the time i spend with them and i only hope that people see thru that in my profile. But good luck and i am sure everything will go good...may you find what you are looking for...Lorna

Expectations and assumptions may play a bigger part to your question then you have considered.  The other thing that is a big challenge for many people is presenting themselves as they really are to a computer screen, without seeing facial gestures, hearing expressions in one's tone of voice and being able to read any body language cues.  So, we try and we hope and we learn more about ourselves on this platform then perhaps we do about the other.  Your choice to remain positive, happy and hopeful is delightful.(within your profile).. there are great people in this world to still be found or those that are still looking that have unfortunately not found you yet.  With so many options of seeking someone, it is hard to know where to put your moneys worth to "try" your luck.  It does happen and so I say... be patient... keep trying... and enjoy the process as much as you can.  The key for me is to be appreciative and flexible with the many options available for connecting with others.  May you find comfort in these words and best wishes to you for remaining confident along the way :)

Wanda~
