Same thing happened to me. I met quite a few ladies using match.com. After a few years, I finally found mutual chemistry with one. So it can certainly go at least that far. A few months later, she wrote a good-bye email and I struggled with that. I also sometimes felt that match.com itself was an addiction, that is, looking at profiles, but overall I am not so negative about it. It’s hard work to find a match no matter how we search.
