Why is it so hard to meet someone where you live??Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I've been living in Richmond for about 4 yrs now. I moved here from Maple Ridge,cause there where no good jobs there. I figure if you don't go to school out here you know no one :(

What else is there to do out here? I work lots,mostly nites. and everyone that I do know works or goes to school during the day.

Because I live in Utah.

It's funny, smoochiegal, I just read an ad by a woman looking for an Englishman to meet in Utah! Evidently she just came back from England very impressed with the men there. She's in the wrong place to meet Englishmen!

Cheers!

it is hard because most men want sex and no friendship and i cant have that...it is kinda hard to have a sexual thing with a stranger at least for me...i would rather at least talk to the person twice a week to keep things going smoothly...but that is just me

I have that crappy night shift thing going on too. Pretty hard to socialize when your schedule it backwards compared to everyone else.....

Because the grass is always greener on the other side. I know in my area a big problem for singles is that there is not that many of us. Recently, Rochester, New York (the area I am from) has one of the highest married population in the States. So the pickings are slim here.

Hac3011, you're so right... It's some kind of online Murphy's Law, I guess... All the good guys seem to be thousands of miles away~~~The grass is always greener......

Because I live in Dallas TX - I don't have the big hair, the 20 inch waist, the fake boobs, drive a Mercedes, and my zip code isn't in Highland Park. Oh, did I mention because I'm over 40??

Because none of the women in my area actually want to meet someone. They just like to read and delete messages.

Mainly it's because the women around here will only date hot guys, black guys, tall guys or potheads. Since I'm not any of the above I'm SOL.

A positive profile helps......

But ppl in my area are generally reluctant to meet too.

I have more out of state ppl come to my pof parties than locals

Why fish in your back yard pond, when you can go to a lake. After all thats what this site is. I feel that people are fishing way to deep, hoping they catch the monster of all fish!!! So they keep throwing back the little ones.
The situation to me is, that most woman are looking for the most handsom with a wallet there happy with, some may even fish through the night to catch the one! with a million !!!. And men are looking for the most slimest good looking mermaid, and is not much bothered that he is just a toad.

I have no problem meeting women ... It’s more about knowing where to look than anything else - and I might live in the city with the worst dating scene in the world.
