One last hurrah I thought, and it's just scammers and nonsense...ten years ago it was quite a different story, very reasonable to say even a 'community spirit', now it's no more than window shopping and swipe left (I can't remember which way tbh) is there anyone out there actually getting meets on the back of an honest profile?...have your say...
Hi, I sent a mail to a nice one living in the hills of Catalonia yday and she responded nicely. She is no scammer. So the first thing you do Scarab is to forget the nice stuff that was once present at forums / blogs - cos even if some here are still DATEABLE!.... lol most aren't available of one reason or another. What you do is search with an open mind yourself. Rule out anybody who looks too good to be true.
Can you relocate Mister? If not I'd look locally as Mercedes recommends, she has a point. So- the chances are still here at cs but perhaps less than in the foregone haydays. I sometimes wonder if the whole world was nicer ten years ago not only online. Anyways, there is still hope even here. I fund a few nice none-scammers in Africa too, easy to underestimate.
To look for a date on a international site means you should be ready to relocate at some point. Otherwise is just attention seeking (unless being here for the blogs and forums) Those who are not looking have mentioned it in their profiles and yet the message isn't coming across to the reader. Mercedes is right, get out if you want to meet someone real, if not, be ready to compromise.
The number of members "near me" (lets count the whole of Belgium because the country is not that big, I'm in the centre, so that makes a driving distance circle of max 180 km) is staggering.... low ! A match out of a handfull of theoretic potentials , boils down to zero individuals. That's how CS is, in bottomline reality.
