Online dating working for you?Page 9 of 13    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)
No luck here!
I haven't got a message from anyone I find attractive. Some claim they're in their 40's but look like their in their 60's. They say they are "athletic" when they have a gigantic belly. Some are really fat. Others have brown crooked teeth. Most that have messaged me never bothered to read my profile, & make it clear they're after sex only.
I don't send out any messages to guys, I did a few times & never got any responses. I did make a friend from here, I hoping to be able to visit her in California next summer. I go on a dating site, never get a date, but make a friend.

Online dating isn't working for me. I actually did a "paper napkin" calculation of the odds of finding a compatible match based on most women's criteria and my own criteria. I think I'm going to live on a mountain and become a monk.

Yes, it has worked for me quite well. This venue allows you to interact with a number of like-minded people in a short amount of time. It's a safer environment for women, and can allow for significant time saving when a little common sense is applied.

I have met pyschos dating sites - as well as some incredibly awesome people....some of them were both. ;-)

It works for me quite well. I've been doing it off and on for six years now. Can't complain at all. I've met some wonderful women that I never would have met any other way.

I have recently started the online dating process. The few women I have talked with seem okay but online is a great place to filter people that you wouldn't want to meet. Works both ways and at our age, we should already know what we DON"T want in a relationship and partner.

Online dating working for you? Hmmm.. Oh we'll... At some point yes, it is working for me in a way that I can meet other people or it's simply to say, for social reason.

Well the tide has turned for me. I was recently contacted by a woman and we have been seeing each other regularly........enough to warrant hiding my profile and changing my status to not single/not looking. She is keeper caliber as far as I'm concerned :) and the feeling seems mutual.

I've encountered some cool people, but my dates have all come from real life.

No, and I doubt that it will. I'm going to concentrate my efforts on learning how to play the piano. It's much less stressful, and much more rewarding.

Online dating is horrible. I keep getting contacted by some women. I have to tell them that I am in a relationship right now, that it says that on my profile, that I am not interested in anyone else.

Then there are other women that contact me to wish me well and they have liked something I said in my profile or on the forums.

The reason I say this is not to brag, but to simply indicate that it's a state of mind. If all you think is negativity, negativity will come back to you. If you think and act positive, it keep coming back positively.

It works if you are just looking for friends, or for players, diseases and guys who are not serious about a relationship.

It isn't working for me, i am attractive, And looking for the real thing, but sadly to say eventhough I have a college education and don't
In bed with men they only seem to want a geisha girl in the end, and lie about their real intentions.
I am not trying to whine, but it seems to turn out this way most of the time.

Absolutely...people are drawn to those with a positive attitude and want to be around them.

Hasn't worked for me yet. Sent out several meesages and hardly any responses. Meeting people in person seems to work better, but I keep this just in case. You never know.

A wedding band will cover that up nicely...lol

I made a new friend last week at a social function and as it turns out she is single as well and has been for nearly 6 years. She was/is curious about on-line dating so I mentioned PoF to her thinking she might want to give it a try. I didn't want to turn her off or scare her so I kept my experiences to a minimum (kidding) sorta.

Anyhow...she asks me how long I have been on the site and I mumble, "um, about six years"
"SIX YEARS?" ...... and you haven't met anyone?
"Um, no not yet....pass the bread rolls please"

Well....I guess it is better to be a "stand up comic"......over one that is a "comic lying down".....lmao

OT......I think far to many put all their eggs in the one basket of this site or one of the others, and do not look at it as a piece to that puzzle of finding others to enjoy and be happy with. If singles do not have a good support system, social clubs and activities to enjoy, places to go, and people to see, out there in the real world, all they end up with is Disney Land on here, where the lines are long, the rides to short, and have physical requirements to even enter them.....go figure!

This social site called POF, is just one more piece of the puzzle of finding others that we enjoy enough to let them potentially enter our life, with one of the largest problems being long distance, which can deter even the best of us! So, hope for the best, expect the worst, and enjoy what you get......while knowing what the means.

Nope....but I think it is as much a function of my schedule (50% of evenings until 9pm and 50% of weekends until 9pm) as anything. I've met several that didn't want to see me again, and vice versa. But all in all, not what I had hoped.
