Are women on POF actually looking for a relationship?Page 7 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)

Nah, making a crack at the eye knucklers
I could use a boy or two around the house. :/
Now I'm singing everybody ought to have a Maid, replacing Maid with boy. Have to go to youtube and play it


Not familiar with that particular ditty< Though I have been wishing lately that I had a Maid! A house cleaner at the very least< When does the domestic drudgery 'must do it myself' end? hahahaha

Really. I want to know.

i think honestly it's more for attention than anything for ladies. that's my theory anyways, like i write them creative messages tailored entirely too them and barely get a hey response back lol. i mean i guess that's better than i hear for most guys, at least they respond but yeah. it's pretty much the same experience with all these ladies so i think it's fair to assume it's for attention. honestly any real relationship takes a lot of work too and i just assume these ladies think the man should do everything, but i do believe that it should be a back and forth. i can't imagine a marriage with a lady where i give 100% and she gives maybe 5% or doesn't put anything in. i mean i'm not sexist, i just don't want to be with a lady that's lazy and doesn't want to put any effort whatsoever in. maybe that's too much to ask, i mean i'm not financially rich so whatever lol. i guess maybe that's the price i have to pay for a loyal, trustworthy woman who wants to be there for the long term.

Stepen have you bothered to look at the status of most of the men on this site? most are not looking and half of those who are, are still married to the first one. No decent woman sees that as decent, why in hell would a decent woman settle for less just because it cries a lot about not being picked? I'm guessing no one picked you because you're rude and annoying to women. You think we owe you something and we don't , point blank.

Sure, for POF or any of the mainstream dating sites.
I think that both genders are seeking happy relationships.

The answer is dependent on how hot you are.
If you are "hot", the answer will be yes they are.
If you are not though, that answer becomes a harder-than-the-ground no.

l also believe technology is totally fkg dating , relationships, lives, marriages, and most definitely people and heads, just read through the forum. FB alone has destroyed more marriages and started more affairs than anything in history.

The thing is , real life also seems different now in these ways, harder or something not sure what it is but it seems a lot harder to get out there and do stuff or meet people. l think they're all at home living on computer screens too.
Thank God people still go to the beach at least , is all l can say, love the beach.

^^^I don't think it's technology in itself that's messing up dating. It's how people use the technology. It's like the popular American saying: "Guns don't kill people. It's people who kill people." A lot of people feel that because there's an endless supply of fish in the sea via the internet, they can be super picky and wait until Mr./Miss Total Perfection shows up, and won't settle for anything less. If it wasn't for the internet, they would've settled for whoever lives in their neighborhood. But some people go overboard in their search for perfection, by having a mile long list of "must have" requirements, must answer all questions properly, etc. to ensure they end up with a totally flawless person. Dating becomes like a job interview and a mission to find that super-human life-long partner.

Cell phones is another piece of technology that can mess up dating-if someone's cell phone is their whole life and must look at it and be on call 24/7, even while on a date. Some cell phone addicts will use the excuse, that they need to have it available at all times in case of emergency. My response to that is "Give me a call when all of your emergency situations are resolved and it's safe to go on a date." How did civilization survive before cell phones?

There are some who are looking for a relationship, some who aren't, some who are just on here for an ego boost, meal ticket, etc etc. Just because people like the OP keep choosing wrong partners doesn't mean there's something wrong with an entire gender on POF.

Make better choices, have better outcomes.

What about men who have been on POF or years? Why don't you just move on to the next "hottie"?

I dunno, I'm not "hot", but I tried the streets, and the vice squad chased me off....

But you can see some people on them for yrs are for good reason and you can see that, that's all. But others, things just haven't happened but not through any fault of their own. That's the difference.
The hottie stuff , yeah , ridiculous. Only about 10% of people fall even close to that bracket anyway in RL but that's the thing. The rest are all still asking for it as if they're models themselves yet far far from it. That's the point to me.
But in reality , most of us or most couples in RL are just ordinary average people of all shapes and sizes and personalities,
that's reality.

I am going through this now. She said what she wanted in her profile, I fit the bill and we met. She just wants to be a friend collector. She's been on here for a long time. What's the deal ?

I've had many discussions about this topic with friends. We agree that a lot of women (not all) are just here for the attention. Not attention to go out. It's more about the feeling they get from a bunch of guys sending them messages and wanting to be with them. I could be having a great conversation with someone. It could go on for hours or days then poof (or POF)... she's gone! I'm not someone that says "Hey baby" while messaging, I don't send d*ck pics, I don't request naked pics from her and I don't discuss sex during the conversation. I can make anything sound dirty but I have to get to know someone. So it's not that I said something wrong. I have the feeling there are a bunch of others to talk to and then she'll move on to them and then to the next ones.

It was mentioned that a lot of women have been on here for years. I've seen a lot of that. Some are very good looking and their profiles say they have a lot of great qualities. Makes you wonder why they've been single for so long. Granted they might be dating and not connecting with some people but someone decent had to come along. Some profiles have pictures that say POF on them. Those are very old!

When it comes to being single, it must be good to be a woman. Guys are usually the aggressors. A woman can just be average looking with a few decent pictures. She doesn't even have to write anything in her profile and she'll still get a bunch of messages. She'll have the option to go out every night. Dinner, drinks and maybe an activity. No problem having sex if she wants it. This can happen with a different guy every night. It doesn't apply to everyone but a number of woman probably do this.

"I am going through this now. She said what she wanted in her profile, I fit the bill and we met. She just wants to be a friend collector. She's been on here for a long time. What's the deal ?"

>>>if you subscribe to the notion, that women seek relationships and connection, then having a friendship....is a relationship and a connection. There's a platonic intimacy. She won't get sex, but if she's good looking...then according to the women here, she's getting enough offers. and she can still talk or text with you about her day :) I had a female friend who didn't include me in her list of sexual relationships, b/c it was more casual. So, sometimes a woman is getting her needs met, but it doesn't "count". She's "single" b/c she isn't in a committed relationship. She may be getting something somewhere, but she's free to drop that at a moment's notice when Ryan Gosling calls.

"When it comes to being single, it must be good to be a woman."

>>>attractive men can enjoy the same thing, I've known a few. one was a coworker who stepped out on his gf regularly, but was always home when she called, so they both could keep up the farce. its their world, we're just trying to date in it :) lol seriously, like someone else pointed, the internet offers a lot of options, and as science proves, too many options leads to paralysis. b/c we fear the best choice is possible and we're going to miss it if we move too soon.
