Len05: i find the site quite good.
Off course 90 percent of what is on the site doesn't interest me.
And then 9 percent of the women don't ever bother to answer.

But good. i can live with 1 percent, i don't need so many.

I've met good people thanks to this


-This is very true, i also met real people.But i am realistic: looking for someone from the different country or different content make things not real.I met people from my country, i went for a coffee,a dinner,with some of them i had relationship-3,6,months,once it lasted-2 years!I know why it did not work for something permanent-:)

How to exclude scammers?-just ask viber,whats app or Skype and chat face to face.It is not dangerous-you always can block the person if you don't want to see him/her again.

I do not understand why somebody says that asking for Skype is means you are a scammer;

As for good or bad english -sure,it is a matter of education level,recently i spoke/ chatted in Skype with a construction worker from UK-he was pure english man, his english was much worse than mine-:))

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!

In my experience.....the good ones are long gone and taken, and occassionally there are gems to be found on sites like this one, but for the most part, time wasters and scammers.

devil i am as real it can be banana

Pitty thing is, every contact/ dating site has her/his scammers, and i met a lot already. The good thing in my case, im filter them straight out. One thing to think about is, never give your important/ personal e-mail nor any personal data in the beginning, outside your name, of course, seems to me idiot to address your possible future partner with his/her nickname, if there is common interests, well give it a try, start a video call, so you see and hear each other, a good thing to prove both are real. You like to go on, you can give your personal e-mail, and all the rest will follow. And why not, meeting is one of the reality in a relationship. For long distance, plan a holiday to the country, stay in a hotel, no obligations and secure. And if everything fits well...go ahead.
I would not call it a waste of time, even if it didnt work out, for me ( my opinion) i nice experience. An opportunity to discover a new culture or country. So, head up! And dont lose your faith. tip hat

Honestly, I would say many people are. I know I am and I find it disheartening that someone either does not ready my post and emails me based on my photo. Read the post!!! I am not a "God fearing Trump loving'" woman. I think my profile alludes to that.

Cat_lover_2014: To be honest, are there any real people, who really are interested in meeting someone special here?
Seems like 95% of local users are fakes or simply time wasters.
Do you believe that profile with one or no pictures may be real ones?

My experience says that all of them are scammers...


You are right, I keep asking myself what kind of people are here/ Some will contact you and have nothing to say. Some will play stupid boss and simply say, "tell me about yourself" such nonsense. Normally, when you meet people you introduce yourself and then the conversation will flow from there. For me they're simply negative energy and I don't waste a single time with them. I think they are really scammers or miserable fat people hiding behind the computer looking for writing like stenographers just to find unserious and naive women to consume their time. I simply ignore them. But I think it's possible there are very few men here even though old boys are more.

You probably need to distinguish between people contacting you and those you first send a message yourself. The latter are more representative for the people you may like to meet on CS.

Among the people contacting you, it is fairly easy to sift out those just crying out for attention: the "How are you doing?" messages. They possibly send out hundreds of messages and they seldom read the profiles of their the people they contact. If any conversation follows, it almost certainly ends up being a waste of time.

Few people actually write an elaborated personal message to a single person they may like. You will notice they have actually read your profile in detail. Their intentions may be genuine. This is the kind of message you will like to answer. It also is the kind of message you should write when making the first move. You surely spend more time on it with a yet uncertain outcome, but it's the only strategy which isn't designed to fail.

Yes i am immigrant and so what? I am lucky i can leave anywhere i want. I am still on the site. My problem isnt scammers coz i can smell them from far but desparate retired pensions who want sex on line. I saw someone saying that most of those who say are christian are also fake. I am a born again christian i will never deny my faith for anyone.

I think there are lots of scammers, yes, but also lots of genuine people - but then after reading this thread I'm questioning my judgement laugh

I was on this site when I first became single a few years ago and I did meet a couple of real people and am still friends with them. I saw one romantically for two years and then we decided we were just wasting each other's time because we couldn't really see us progressing beyond where we had got to. We're still friends but have admitted to that and have let each other be free to see other people.

I once had someone travel very long distance to meet me and he got the hump because I disagreed with some advice he gave me (having never lived where I live and having no idea about how things work here and I did try to be gentle when disagreeing with him!) and he left within 24hrs to travel home again! He's messaged me a few times since then and I just wonder why, if I upset him so much when we met. Maybe nobody has agreed to meet him since?

Anyway, it's nice to chat to people wherever they are and nice to meet new people, even if it doesn't turn into a long term friendship or relationship.

"On this site the 70% of people is a scammer."
No way !
Even if 70% of the opening messages you receive were scams... you still need to consider that scammers 'make a living' of their malignant practice. Hence they probably send out more opening messages in a day than genuine members may send in an entire year.

That’s a good question. I have been popping in and out of this site for about 9 years.

Met some really nice people, friends still, I am still in touch with quite a few male and female. All genuinely nice people. In fact I flew to Australia last year to meet a few. I Met a man here, had 6 year relationship with him until he drifted off with a much younger recently widowed woman who lives just around the corner from him. Too much of a. Temptation I suppose, ( she is hard up and needed a meal ticket. long story ) since coming back to this site I see so many men who appear to live near my location and view my profile often but don’t bother to write. I would have thought that men of my generation would understand that, For me and women of my age, men have usually made the first contact. How do I get rid of these old fashioned thoughts ideas and make the first move. I have no idea what to say to a stranger, I have no opening lines! I have written a comprehensive profile maybe that is of putting.

Things have changed so much in such a short time.

Well I am giving this one last shot. I know there are plenty of scammers on here they are easy to spot. There are lots of genuine
people too. I truly believe.
