It seems like almost all people male or female are looking for someobe that is only in their head. Are we on here to actually date or just send messages? Out of 22 messages I sent 2 replied. Really?
What are your thoughts? Maybe I am the only replusive one on here! I think not.

As I have pointed out on numerous occasions, the strengths and weaknesses of free online dating sites are often one and the same... A guy who's too shy in real life can make an approach, but so can some fruitcake with no manners. The temptation is to portray ourselves in a way we can't live up to, claiming to be a multimillionaire or supermodel are fairly common. And on another site I see heaps of short fat humpty dumpties that only want guys in their twenties, I'm sure there are also fat bald guys living the dream too.

What was it Oscar Wilde is claimed to have said- I wouldn't join a club that would have me as a member, or something like that.

Groucho Marx I think.

I'm not looking for Miss Perfect at the moment - more like Miss She's Bearable. The beauty of having your own standards is you can raise and lower the bar whenever you like. thumbs up

2 out of 22 isn't a too bad hit rate ... if you look at pretty much any form of 'cold canvassing' and 'direct marketting' the people involved generally consider 0.3% to be average and you're on about 0.9%

The thing to remember is that, like a letterbox leaflet drop, you're contacting a 'scattergun exercise' ... YOU might think it's 'targetted' but that's based upon what you read ... and what 'they write' is typically a bland stereotypical monologue!

But lemme ask (TIC)

Plumber, electrician, real estate agent, gardeners, fast food shops, tradies blah blah blah all drop leafelts in your mailbox ... do YOU ever bother to reply 'Thanks for your message, sorry not interested'

Nah, of course not ... and it's same here !

Whining makes matters worse ...

cheers

I'm not so sure I can actually date or much of anything from online. I've been through many profiles over the years. I'm more likely to have a short conversation with a potential scammer than, a possibly real person. It's good to keep trying as no one wants to, or should, close any potential doors. The internet certainly makes me keep a higher state of caution and alertness with all of those "specialty orders" floating around.

I can't bring reality into a virtual life and a virtual life just doesn't work in reality.


dunno

I think people go through phases on a dating website.
Maybe some of thosex women u messaged are actually currently just starting to date someone and havnt deleted their profile yet.

Maybe some are just back on after a disastrous date and want to take things easy

Others like myself r just on here for the forums n blogs with no interest in dating anyone.

I'm sure ur not repulsive ..but I also wudnt take non replys personally.

Mostly people are just looking for the perfect person for them as apposed to chasing the myth of there being a perect person
