Has anyone else noticed that this seems to be a meat market? When I was on POF a few years ago, people were actually looking to date. Now it seems that they are only looking to get laid. I think the name should be changed to PieceOfAss. haahaha
Hey you hit the nail on the head I think. I was actually thinking the same thing but you said it first. You read all this ,oh I want my soul mate, ready to love again, wanting long term etc...... Then when you meet them it is like, how fast can I take your clothes off. Men should say what they mean, dont pretend and act like you want true love and you cant even keep your hands to yourself on the first date. Also another pet peeve is when someone in their 60s or 70s say they are looking for their soul mate, I think dang what in the heck have they been doing their whole life, it is almost over and they want that special feeling.lol I know some of us women are sorta hard on you men but alas most of it is true. I tend to think that most men think women are not thinking reality when we want true love or we are acting like teenagers. I had one man tell me that, that I was not a teenager so stop thinking like one. Hmmm does that mean giving up on romantic love because you are older and more wordly? I for one still would like to have that feeling again. One man told me he was looking for a friends with benefits and how did I feel about it. I told him there was a Oriental Spa down the road and to look in the yellow pages for Escorts. Never heard from him again. I enjoy making love as good as any of you but please dont think you are a Adonnis just because you have a d.lol So please dont put nomore baloney on your profile, just put "Looking to get Laid". At least you are honest. Some women might appreciate that, but not why I am here.

In totally concurment with you.


must be part of the Sarah Palin School of Language.. 'concurment' is up there with 'refudiate' ! ":)

also, even if 'concurment' were a real word, I think it would be "in total..", not "in totally..."

guess I didn't sleep through ALL of those boring English classes :)

The meatmarket aspect always exists, no matter if you're online, in a bar, or walking through the local grocery store. Don't take it out on the location when the people are the ones who make it that way.

When someone starts sending messages that are obviously suggestive, pass them by and keep looking. You'll find someone eventually who wants the same things as you.

I found someone a few months back that I thought was the one I had been looking for all my life. But, turned out that he had an ex who wouldn't allow it to be just the two of us, and he wasn't willing to let her go so we could make a go of it. Unfortunate, but a lesson learned.

Keep trying. You'll find what you're looking for when you least expect it.

When I am in the grocery store, I avoid the meatmarket there. I am vegetarian.

I was on this site once at least 5 yrs ago. It was different then from what i can see i just been on here about a month. The guys I met on here were interested in really serious relationships. More serious then me. My daughter and job were my life basically.So now i know not to start with a guy who is looking to start a family( I am to old and worn out to have kids mine is in mid 20s. I met a few guys then non had been married or divorced and thats why it didnt work out for me. I thought it best to let them free to find someone to start a family with since that what they wanted.. plus there were 15 - 20 yrs younger then me...

Interesting you say that a few years ago people were more genuine but not anymore.
I agree that it is full of liars and players and those looking to get laid.... THey are not even attractive most of the time.... I have met three and they were all of that mind and had lied on their profiles one way or another.. I dont bother with even meeting for coffee anymore and just prefer the forums. It has been a social experiment for me and most enlightening and interesting.... Women do themselves a disservice by settling for so little and giving it up so early and even on first meeting or date. Some are appalled that they are pumped and dumped and some I guess just have fun with it and expect little. THe mistake people make is thinking that a real relationship can start with someone from a dating site but it happens very very rarely.

If they were 15 or more years younger than you why were they bothering if they wanted a family. Just a casual non committed affair until a more suitable girl came along??? That is usually the motive of men going for older women, they can learn a few things, not get serious and even have the woman pay for them along the way, in some form or another... Meals at home rather than eating out etc. It is no kudos for a man to be seen with an older woman and be marked as the toy boy.

A few years ago many of us were new to online dating ! Online dating has not changed, we have just become more aware of it's pitfalls and loopholes !

Not true about being a meat market, it actually is a "meet" market and for many that also involves learning to be more realisitc, or staying single !

The only difference I see between free dating site and a pay dating site is on pay dating sites people are more serious about meeting. When a site like this is free, they can dream away ! Other than that it's all basically the same. People on pay sites may be a little busier with their time and have less free time so they pay for the access and are more willing to meet, less interested in long distance relationships or internet romance.

Well its a "free" site which means anything and everything will get caught in your net. At lease with Match and others it kinda decreases the chances of a lot of the BS. They should rename this site to Plenty of Freaks. Lmao

I Strongly Agree.

No one wants an actual relationship.

I have had a few regretful dates.

The only thing I got from this site was BS from every direction...

Deleting my profile bond to Never Return is Easy!

I have friends that have actually have gotten Married....of of Match.com

Anything Free....coming with Expensive Risk!

He sounds upset.

I hope he's got better luck in the "real world".

Otherwise he just might be one of those who brings a shotgun to a crowded mall during the holiday shopping season because it's everyone else's fault he can't meet anyone.

I have heard this complaint many times from women, but not once from a man.

It's the age old dilemna between the sexes. Men want wild sex without all the drama.
Women want wild commitments without all the drama.

Unfortunately, the middle ground is very sparse.

As the numbers have increased greatly you get more sleazies. I believe years ago the dating site were more genuine and respectable. Now they are just hook up sites
and the site should be called Plenty of Fcuking....Men outnumber the women greatly and very few get any real ass I venture to say.

It's because committment isn't a must but sex is. We can survive without a committed relationship, but would die if we didn't get our willies & vajaja's wet Honestly every aspect of being with a partner has diminished, marriage, monogamous relationship, even dating, everyone just seems to be out for well a piece-of-ass, it's human nature even though it appears to be animalistic, and it doesn't seem to be any hope of changing that so if you can' t beat em' join em'...get your freak on!!!

I feel the same way, its sad to say. Especially when their profile says serious relationship or relationship and all they really want is sex. Its their trick to lure, you in I guess.

Yes you right. But what I notice in the dating game. Women in the 50ish age bracket DONT play games. Come on the gloves are OFF. Women are just as HORNY as men. They KNOW this STUPID game playing crappola does NOT work like it did in their 20 or 30 or 40tees. Lets face it Both sexes are tired of the BULL SHIT. Besides they cant get pregnet anymore. In Europe the women dont play as many GAMES as their sisters in North America thats for sure. If they like you they LET you know right up front usually SEX isnt a big taboo is it is in North America.
