@BoardGamerGeek It doesn't really matter if someone is trying or not. All that really matters is mutual attraction. If someone isn't interested in you they aren't going to give you the time of day on a dating site.

@BoardGamerGeek It really isn't just about rejection based on appearance it is usually just as much about timing as anything. All the women you message will have been on here for a period of time. She will probably already have people she is chatting to, people she may have messaged back and forth a number of times. She may even been in the process of meeting or having met someone already. She may very well have thought you were a good possibility but women, on the whole, don't tend to play the 'let's keep a few in reserve just in case game'. If you had contacted her before these other chaps then your well written message may well have had a completely different outcome...

Recieving cut & paste messages and/or one word messages (e.g beautiful xx) annoy me a little bit. Something that annoys me more though is getting an identical message from the same guy a week later.

I once told a friend I didn't like getting " Hey " msgs , he pointed out that if it was from someone I found attractive it wouldn't bother me.

He was right.

Ghosting, one of the most childish lame and sadistic tactics done by women who don't have the decency to be honest.

Oh god this trait is so annoying. You message a girl where your interests are perfectly aligned. You send about 2-4 emails back and forth to break the ice and make them comfortable. Then they ghost you with no reason why. It's downright mean and sadistic. Why waste our precious time and get our hopes up just to ruin it? You get off on it? You should know immediately if we don't look like Greek gods to you and you can't tell that much by plain email conversations so how about you just be honest or try a MeetUp first? Then you can give a reason why, but never ghost, it's a really childish act!


ah found it

Internet dating has become 'sort of' 'trendy'.
The net result is that the product has been totally devalued
(apart from Marcus Frind who got 575mil in cash for this pile of cack)
I have a few tried & trusted peeps that I will exchange PMs with,
otherwise I don't look on the Net for 'companionship' or whatever
it's called these days...........

Another one for list - the lame "spark" excuse where women expect some mystical trigger to suddenly erupt in them to make them crave a guy in bed after the first date of just talking to each other.

I spark like crazy, they're the ones being overly fickle and picky.

But frankly the whole concept of this spark thing is just like assuming life is like a Disney movie - gets really annoying, I'd rather they just came out bluntly about my looks and not hide behind that line. Would only drive me to attend the gym more often.

The spark isn't about looks cos if they post a decent photo you ought to have a good idea what they look like. It's about how well you gel and how you bounce off of each other, compatibility, whether or not you can imagine taking them to bed etc etc Looks has very little to do with it.

"i have just spent an hour updating my profile... a proper, thought out, sincere, time consuming profile... but when it came to update, all my hard work disappeared."

couple of bits of advice, if you take too long before trying to post, you can find you've been logged out, just logging back in then hitting the left arrow back button at the left of your browser address bar and it should all re-appear, now you can post it.
if you're not using firefox your browser "may" be different.

alternative don't bother logging in since you know what you want to do, just open (in windows notepad) or a similar note taking program if you're not using windows, draft out whatever you want, save it with a suitable name profile2016 for instance, this way you can take your time edit it etc, then loggin and copy n paste, if owt goes wrong you have a saved copy.

Morning NX - if you use 'update profile' as you go,
it will save as far as you've got. You can then reselect edit profile
and carry on from where you left off (don't forget to press
update before you leave!)
Lovely sunny Devon day - I'm at work..........

I hate when guys message and then message again asking why I didn't reply. Well, I'm not interested clearly... why waste both our time by me messaging you back with a rejection? That can't be fun for you and I don't want to waste my time writing it out. Harsh but true.


If we get a nice long message from a guy actually trying it's really nice!... Until we go on their profile and we're not even slightly physically attracted to them or they live too far away or we have nothing in common with them... That's a bummer. We still appreciate a good/nice message that has effort put into it but once again, why waste more of your time by replying?

So what Pipgoz is saying is exactly what many of us have already said, which is that for most people, the photo is the key. Anything else is just padding.

trying to post a new thread which does not appear but you have no explanation of why, nothing to say you have been barred from starting threads, nothing at all it simply doesn't appear when you hit post it just displays the forum?
this is what i tried to post.
anyone know why it didn't post?

petitions do you sign them?

normally i dont bother but after finding the one below i did!

i've known women that have had problems from wearing heels and i am really against any pressure for anyone to be forced to wear them, or anything else that is not necessary that can or will cause them problems now or in the future.

makes a bit of a mockery of protests over women pressured to wear a burka does it not!
talk about hypocrisy!

any other views either way?

Another annoyance - when girls start being all nice and chatty, arrange a day for a date, and then a couple days later, simply delete the messages, block you online, remove your WhatsApp number etc without any warning or explanation. Essentially when girls lead on blokes probably to get some kind of "high" from all the attention. Someone mentioned scammers - icbidt18 is a profile for another one of these kinds, avoid her at all costs.

too many fake profiles, but found the report user tab is better

having a photo stolen off the net is never going to work :)
