One of the few that ever answered me back, told me that most of the time, we'd go to Chicago for dates. (She lived 15 miles from me) Oh yippee! A four hour round trip just for a date?

Excuse me, I hear my mother calling me.

Then I suppose Texas is out of the question?

Yep, noticed that a week or so ago.
I'd say that the best people live in SA... except a few (or quite a few) live here on POF

..................except a few (or quite a few) live here on POF:-)


Not permanent residential real estate. More like tax free, low maintenance, vacation property.

LOL, A few times I received a 1st message, making no sense to me whatsoever.
1. From a man locally, "Why are you here, if you live so far away?"
2. "What's wrong with you?"
3. "Good luck, you're gonna need it"

Then,............... there was the guy who sent an explicit sexual inquiry as a first message.
My custom was to delete and block, in these cases.
In this instance I decided to respond, just because the question ticked me off.
(me) "How would you like it, if I hit you up the side of your head with a ball bat?
(him) "Why?"
(me) "Why??? You were rude, vulgar, your question was un-called for, and out of line."
(him) "Go away and stop bothering me".

LOL Allrighty then!

If you date long enough, you'll hear every excuse you could imagine. Nothing surprises me anymore.

I've had some gals that live far away but said they'd be in my area in 6 months.


Many times I've had emails from women who claimed to be moving to my area, or asked me NOT TO DATE ANYONE until they moved out there! Ha! Ha!

One woman in particular was in Germany, and I traded a lot of mail with her because she had some interesting comments. In every letter I told her how I was dating other women and wasn't going to wait for her. Eventually I blocked her.

Sheesh- you reply to one person, and suddenly his post and profile have disappeared.

Sheesh- I hope it wasn't me you were replying to.
I got a message once that just said "Your profile is stupid."
And when I tried my usual standard canned and very pleasant note to thank her for reading my profile, I found that she had already blocked me! lol! I think she's prolly had more experience at this than I have.

I dont get replies very often,what I noticed this past week is that 2 or 3 of those I had messaged had changed thier profile completely around. I mean 180dgrees around to the point where I would of never messaged them to begin with!

And all this time I never once thought I had the power to change how a woman thinks!

I find I go through 'phases' where I actually get some replies, and sub-phases where most of them are 'umm no we are not compatible' replies, where some of them are 'send me your email or phone number' (instant scam alert flag!), where most are very clearly not written in structured English (instant scam alert flag!), or most are the 'you are too far away' when that can be as little as 50 km (ie basically the next town when we're talking a rural/country regional area).

Majority of the time there are just no replies at all.

LOL @ limited things to people within walking distance... although that's funny Ive gotten pretty much the same here, when the guy was only 35 miles from me. To me, that's "local"

OP, I've had a couple of messages asking if I am open to dating outside my race and another one asking "Do you like white men?" I blocked the later and to the former I replied "Why not?".

I amended my profile yesterday to subtly state that I'm open to dating inter-racially so that I don't get those sort of questions but perhaps it's not necessary and might even raise more questions who knows??

The fact is a lot of black women feel they should only date within their race. It's unfortunate that one will rule out the opportunity to have a loving relationship because of the colour of one's skin but hey, worse things have happened.

The weirdest message I've had so far wasn't a reply to an intro, it was the intro...

"Hi, I read your profile and you sound like just my type but your curtains are hideous! So disappointing. Good luck in your search"

W T F ?
