I'd like to think that these are just the worst examples of online dating, but then I remembered my own online dating history, haha. :S

Some women at work still tell me to join online dating sites.
They don't have a clue. Horrible places. I would rather be single all my life than suffer all that crap.

I even contributed with a few stories, back then when I was still dating

lots of crazy people out there

“I'm fine. Well, I'm not fine - I'm here."
"Is there something wrong with that?"
"Absolutely.”

Ugh. Sometimes I think about trying online dating again but then I think no way.

Nice timing on this thread as I've heard that the period right after the holidays going up to Valentine's Day is the busiest for online dating sites. So there will be lots of ads on TV and the web in the coming weeks to sign up for a site.

I've heard a lot of sites send out fake messages to members to entice them to stay on the site or to "upgrade" their membership. "Pay more and you can view this (fake) message from a handsome man or beautiful woman."

It's tempting to join again until I remember the guy who had a fake picture on his profile, the guys who turned out to be married, the guys who made it clear they were only interested in jumping into bed and the profile or two that featured the guy dressed in drag (for Halloween, maybe? But why the hell would you put that photo on your profile?)

So yeah - no online dating for me! Smile

With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.

Well that was an interesting read indeed. I did notice one glaring item in the first article TB posted. The men were bringing up the fact the women were large and not in a nice way. It always seems to be a factor. Of course being deceiving is not a good trait anyways and not being honest. But must they be described as 'One woman who’d refused to send me a photo was so big she had double bingo wings. She wore Crocs shoes and tatty old leggings that showed every bulge and bump.'

Think the writer could have, not chosen to put in such descriptions. Anyways not to derail thread just sad all round.

Never used one, nor would I ever use such a thing. But that is my choice alone. Blessed be and may those who do find someone that way, get truth and happiness..


ps .. Please do not take my observation and turn the thread into something else. It was just my opinion and thoughts. Thanks ^.^

Who the hell brings their kids on a date!?!

Well this won't put me off much, am still going to keep trying on pof for now. I know it's all against me, but there's lots of real women in my city.

They send fake messages, winks and interest all the time.
I joined a few, left my profile blank, didn't put a photo on and got dozens of messages from all these women. The catch was I could only view the full messages if I paid my monthly fee. It's a con and that's why I hate them. Exploiting lonely people.

I think it's an insight of how people really think. Those comments about large women were quite horrible.

Yes! I signed up to Zoosk dating site & only had my name, age, and location...no photo, no "about me", nothing. I didn't use it at all & for months got winks, messages, and requests to chat every day! Such a scam but pretty funny making me THINK that guys would want to chat when there's no picture w/ a completely blank profile.

I've been on 4 major dating sites. I've only got one message. WTF! Club
Plenty of suggestions from the "love making algorithms" for users that no longer use the sites though.
