How many of you have gone on successful first dates from people met on pof?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Been there done that! I've switched it up many times and even made my profile as sarcastic as I could put it and the funny thing is I actually got a few responses on that to change it up, then when I do I get nothing! even with the photos. The military look is me, why fool somebody on what I'm not. Plus I don't have very many photos of myself wearing anything nice except from my 2nd wedding and engagement pictures which are a few years old! do you think putting those photos up help in anyway? I don't think so! But you know what I will try it and see what responses I do get. It took everything in my ex to get me to do those photos because i hate having my picture taken. As to sending women messages, Yes I have. Do I get any responses back, sometimes but thats where it all ends! I use to teach how to use firearms! These days I just check everybody's crap to make sure the pumps are flowing right. Its a good idea that I don't list what my job is due to the nature of it!

I've gone on 3 dates with women I've met on this site. I still keep in touch with 2 of them, they are really cool but we're not quite a match. As far as the other girl, well... I thought the date went great but she kinda dissapeared. Oh well, that's life right?

Zero. Not for lack of trying either, even the ones I have managed to get into conversations with for a bit seem to suddenly get very quite when I ask them out. I have a few conversations still going on this site, but for the most part it seems like it just doesn't work.

Like I said, I get 2-4 into a conversation, I ask em out and BAM...
Never hear from them again. Oh well, just have to keep getting back on the horse I guess.

I too have not had one single date on this site, I have taken advise from members and made some changes to my profile and removed some pics that i guess werent to flattering of me from what i was told. But then again this a free dating site im sure most just join for the fun and the curiosity.

I don't know how many dates I have had over the years.... lost count.... but I have had 2 long term relationships with men from here.... one lasted over 2 years and one was over a year.... the site can work when you want it to... and you actually put yourself out there to meet people... I have gone out with men from here that I generally would have said weren't my type... but in an effort to just date and see... I went... and one ended up staying around for over a year.... I think it is hard to tell online what offline will be like... some times you just have to take a chance... and see what happens... at least a meet for coffee.. I think people base too much on a profile and don't realize not everyone has the ability to advertise themselves....

Be careful. I had what I thought was a successful date (it was just supposed to be lunch, but it lasted 8 hours). I had two more dates soon thereafter, and another one after a while. The next thing I know, I'm being extorted.

A successful first date does not mean a viable relationship will follow.
