|Plenty-OFF-IshPage 1 of 1 |
|I remember being in another dating service and sharing something about www.plentyoffish.com. Someone much more observant than I was at the time noticed a very important thing. IF you break this thing down you will find the truth. |
This is NOT "plenty of fish." Here I have seen "plenty-off-ish." Does it take a modern day miracle to get 2 people just to come together for dinner? After all IF you meet in a public place everyone can go home ANY TIME that they want. Think about it!
I am tired of trying to reach out to women that I am HONESTLY interested in who seem to have more excuses that they do desired to go out. Now I KNOW that I might not be the most attractive man here. BUT I do also KNOW that I have a lot to offer.
Maybe we could all remember some basic principles to live by, like the Golden Rule. OH WAIT! Maybe we need to re-educate some folks on that one. I would donate some of my time to do that, providing that there was a cooperative audience.

|I definitely need to put this message back into the forum until every woman on Plenty OFF-ISH has read it. |
What is WRONG here? Why do these women have more excuses than they do just about anything else?

|Now don't forget now about those "Background Checks". Another intrusion into our privacy...|

|Ok, guess I'll speak up for my gender! :)|
It is a two way street out there, you are only looking down it one way.
As far as background checks, it depends on where you are meeting to some extent. There isn't anything all that super personal unless you have something to hide. If I ask for that and the person says 'no', I consider that a red flag. If you have serious interest in dating someone, whats the big deal. JMO of course!

|Ugh! Hasn't everyone had enough of the fear mongering yet?! We ARE talking about a date and in many instances not even that! A first time meeting is always in public and if you are really old fashioned a phone call but if I have to worry so much about any perspective date that I feel I need that person profiled it is seriously time to go back to dating the old fashioned way without web sites such as POF. Just walk right up and start talking and it is as easy as that.|
It gets really old really fast when profile after profile is women asking the proverbial question, "Why is this so hard?" Uh gee probably because you are making it that hard. If the human race is finding it this hard to merely date then I am amazed our species has managed to survive our own inner fears!

|I just met up with someone last night. I know I have to message some before I consider giving out my number. I've had a couple of bad meet-ups and want to be careful. I read someone's profile and try to get an idea about them before I message back. If there isn't much and their message to me sounds like a pick up line I might ignore them.|
