    I love both both of these cartoons, Bearman! You really need to do something with them especially since Internet Dating has sucked even more over the past seven years. I’ll help ya!

  2. MJ says:

    Outrageous funny. These are cool.

  3. nursemyra says:

    I met Stephen via the internet ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. lisleman says:

    Was the first one before they included pictures in the profile?
    Women are so fussy about comedy such as no jokes during sex – what’s up with that?

  5. jynksie says:

    You’ve had the gift all along magi! o.O [grin]

    Cartoon #1: “I’m just a honka honka burnin’ love, baby!”
    Cartoon #2: In the immortal words of Aerosmith, “Dream On! Dream On! Dream On!”

    • Bearman says:

      haha HONK HONK

      I ran across a few who had little to give but wanted a whole lot. One told me based on what I did for a living I couldn’t possibly support her.

  7. Tim Green says:

    Never had to internet date, been married 25 years. These two comics make me glad I never had to! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Jande says:

    I met my husband via a game-simulation newsgroup, corresponded for about two years since we lived about 4k miles apart, and then we met in person. You couldn’t call it “dating” though until we met in person. For us it was more like the times before telephone was invented; long and fascinating letters (email) to each other.

    Those are good cartoons you made. They described my fears once we’d decided to meet in person. LOL Fortunately he’s just as sweet and fascinating in person. <3

    • Bearman says:

      So did you date long distance? How did that work out?

      Didn’t you talk on the phone??

    • George says:

      My wife and I “dated” for two years (nothing but phone calls and e-mails. No Skype or webcamera) before we ever met. It felt like I was cheating on her with her when we first got together. It’s a very strange feeling.

      • Bearman says:

        Two years? I met someone that live in another city. Everything went great and we talked for hours on the phone for a month. Finally I decided to just jump in the car and drive up there to see her. Neither of us felt anything.

        • George says:

          We were both afraid that we had ran our well dry before physically met, but we hadn’t. We hit it off lovely. It was weird “knowing” someone’s voice for two years, but having to learn whether they were hand-wavers when they spoke. Did they walk funny? Did they eat with their hands and not utensils. This is stuff you really take for granted if it’s not a part of your daily life.

          It was weird meeting her. She smelled great. She was even prettier than I always imagined or saw in her photos. We got to hold each other and hug. It truly felt like I was cheating on her with her. My mind could hardly take it for the first hours or so. I kept asking her where the pause button was so I oucl reflect on the situation. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Comedy Plus says:

    I think I dated that clown. I’m pretty sure of it. Like them both and the last one made me spew my water all over the monitor.

    Have a terrific day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Binky says:

    Dating the internet is overrated. Too much data and not enough substance.

  11. Jim says:

    What is this ‘dating’ you speak of?

  12. MC/Curtis says:

    That would be a cool book. How about for one : You look nothing like your profile picture of that vampire girl from Twilight. Oh ya? Well despite the costume… your no Batman.

    I never had a worsse time dating than when I tried internet dating. I guess it works for some. My friend married his internet date, and I’d never tell him so, but they are a horrible match.

  13. Red says:

    Love these! Why is FB telling me this is a spammy link?? I mean other than their total suction?

    Heading off to see the rest. This definitely needs to be an user manual…I meant, book.

  14. James says:

    I think that clown needs to date that Mom.

  15. I bet if that clown had green hair he’d be doing much better with the ladies.

  16. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I am glad I am too old to have experienced that. I was afraid my wife would fall for the Pony Express rider when we were communicating though.

  17. I’m diggin’ the style. Love the clown.

  18. I actually did personal ads before internet dating was big. That was interesting!

  19. Scholar Mel says:

    It’s called a priest… though they can’t marry… yet.

    • Bearman says:

      I have been trying to post on your site all week and it won’t work. I even signed up for the darn commenting thing and it still wouldn’t work.

  20. In my many years of Internet dating I’ve learned no woman wants to date a funny guy.

  21. Friggin Loon says:

    Would be nice if you added some color ๐Ÿ™„

    Hey Bearman, you might want to slip a few of these toons to Susi Spice . Might help her work out what she’s doing wrong. …I’m just saying!!!

  22. Brandon says:

    Oh man, that clown showing up would be enough to put me on edge :S

    Thank god I’ve never had to internet date, I have nothing but pity for my unmarried friends who have.

  23. I’m thankful that I never had to experience internet dating, but I totally would have dated that clown.

    These are great! I’d buy that book.

  24. Miss R says:

    Have you been reading my diary again?
    LOVED the cartoons, and sorry you never published the book.
    Last two relationships started online. Both crashed and burned after a year each.
    Might have something to do with Craigslist. Although I did meet this med student back east one time. Missed his second date after he was arrested for murder. I saw a bright future with that one -sigh-

  25. Tony McGurk says:

    #1 There’s just no pleasing some people
    #2 A Priest maybe???

    My sister had a really funny, but not funny to her, internet dating experience.
    She was online dating a bloke who was a 26 year old school teacher whome she had yet to meet in person. It was getting rather serious & they often discussed marriage, sex, having kids etc. This relationship had been going n for about 6 months & she reckoned she was really in love. One day she got an email from his email account but written by his mother. He was actually a 13 year old kid.

  26. Deb says:

    Funny stuff, Bearman, both are really good.

    I can’t believe how many of your guests have internet dated.

  27. Jenn says:

    Aww, I’ve never tried online dating, I suppose I’m pretty awkward in real life so I can’t imagine how I’d come off on the internet. Glad to hear of George’s success! I can’t imagine what it’d be like meeting someone you’ve communicated with for so long without actually being with them. But from what I hear when you find that special someone, it doesnt matter!

    • Bearman says:

      Actually online you tend to come off less awkward…well except for that woman who sent me naked pictures of herself. (and it wasn’t pretty either)

  28. Nate Fakes says:

    Before I was married, I tried online dating. Didn’t work too well. I’m the guy that tried to put up ‘cool’ pictures of myself, to no avail.
