Hesitant about online dating
That sounds amusing but many online daters dwell on internet communication overly long. They wanted me to get the show on the road and they were right to feel that way.
I made this mistake early on and now understand why a few girls, after several emails, would ask direct questions like “Is there anything else you would like me to answer? There are times where you will feel like you are communicating with a “great catch” only to realize what a mistake that was 60 seconds into the first date.

Actually meeting the person you are talking to is one of the most important steps to online dating.
Additional question: Is online dating safe for someone who is clueless when it comes to dating and when it comes to std's? Online dating is 'safe' unless you're talking about hits to your self-esteem. If you're already thinking about STD's, that means you're thinking about sex. I have gotten dates with 6 or 7 different women and two that developed into more than just one or two dates.
I would not feel bad pursuing an online date, because that was the understood intention from the beginning and there are (presumably) plenty of single people on these sites, right? Girls might "like" you, they might be a 95% for you, but even then they won't talk to you. I don't know what the answer is, but it's damn sure not online dating.
I feel like I need relationship/sexual experience (I have none), but have hangups asking friends out. I mean, not even get to know you enough to reject you. I am exactly the same and I have been wondering the same. I have sort of hated myself a little bit since joining Tinder because I imagined a very cheesy way to meet a girl but since that's not happening. I can say my experience with online dating has been great so far.
You can give a general idea about where you work and what you do, but don’t be specific about which office building you’re in. It really depends how comfortable you are with the idea of a stranger having your number (and yes they are a stranger).
Give a general idea about your hangouts, but not details such as “every Tuesday I take a spinning class at X gym on X street”. I personally do not give my number out anymore unless there has been a first date and there is a potential for a second date.
Moreover, I feel a failed ask would tarnish a valued platonic relationship, hurt my friend group, and generally lead to more negative than anything.
