Um, 17 years online.



Back in those pre-historic ages of paying per minute for internet connection. Ah, the good old days.

This site would only be a waste of time, if this is your primary source for trying to get dates. Im talking if you ONLY sat on here and tried to email woman after woman, after woman, and this is all you had, then yeah....You'd be wasting major time.


Put it to you fellas like this....Most women on here, have PAGES of emails in their inbox for the most part....so...out of those pages, they are going to only choose the top percentage of good looking men to respond to. Its THAT simple. They have alot of options like that.


I dont buy the nonsense that men feed themselves here that if you write some shakespearian sonnet, that she'll respond. Thats just bullsh*t in itself completely. If you arent attractive to the woman, then she isnt responding. Chances are, she wont even read the email.


Lets keep it real, it is what it is.



With that being said, this should be treated as just another way to get a date, on TOP of you having an active social life, with hobbies, and interests outside of the internet.

That is probable, but chances are they do read over the actual profile. I hear women actually do at least that to see if the man has anything interesting to say in it or read something in it that would make them compatible with the man.

I agree, it's just one way, and shouldn't be the only way. Although that's tempting because it's obviously so "easy". But nuthin's ever "free" and my own experience has been that the "quality" seems to improve more with folks I've met IRL (in real life), than online. Dunno, maybe it's the anonymous quality of internet dating and the lack of accountability that attracts a certain "type", but too many of the gals I've come across online just seem kinda skittish and flakey, sending all kinds of conflicting signals, like they're not even sure WHAT they really want, let alone WHO!

But just personally, would recommend donating some time in local volunteer groups. You'll be doing some good work, and the quality of folks there is usually kinda nice too!
