I don't date cold fish, no matter how many there are to choose from. I prefer hot-blooded air-breathers of the human variety.

ARE THERE TOOOOO MANY FISHES IN THE SEA!!!

YES...IF You do not know what you are fishing for.

Give the 5 year old a box of 64 crayolas..they have to chose ONE color to paint the tulips and live with that color forever.

It could take a very long time to choose, picking up one then the other.

Give the same child a box of 5 colors..the child will chose that day.

I think it is knowing what you want, not playing around and testing other "colors" and that comes with experience of what colors work for you and which ones don't.

We can at least hope.

I can eat certain foods everyday of my life and always rejoice in their texture and taste.
Some I love to eat but never everyday for one reason or another.

Find me a purple watermelon, that likes an an emerald green sweet cherry.

May be too many fish but they are all over the size limit LOL ON line is difficult in more way than one. In the beginning before I knew better it was not too bad. But by the 4th meeting of the same old crap it was getting old. The only way to get to know a person is to talk to them off line and in person. Too many fakes and liars on here.

I don't know but I think that, for good or ill, it's proved to be a pretty consistent and reproducible result that people tend to struggle less in choosing, and remain more satisfied with their choices, when the choices were limited.

And like this

The problem is the female fish are swimming upstream and the male fish are swimming downstream, and as they pass each other, most are muttering: "Not my type. Not perfect enough." and keep on swimming.

Exactly right. And those of us who have contacted those 6 or 8 interesting mackerel, salmon and pickled herring who would be perfect for us have either gotten a no thanks or no reply at all, so now we just don't bother.

Yea, we can afford to be way more picky, perhaps, but why's this a bad thing? Divorce rates are on the rise


And we can actually tell from a few "pics" and an "about me" who we will have a true connection with and who we won't be divorcing in a few shot years? Yea, RIGHT!

The only true way to find a connection is to actually meet some of these fishes and
not just say, "na, next" >>>

I'm not so sure if its picky...or apprehensions from the experiences people have gone thru. Some take the negatives from people from past failed relations, and try to weed out those they think have these things.

Of course this can get blown out of proportion...if these people have a habit of always blaming the other people in these past relations and never themselves...lol.

Then needs and desires can get in the way too...and some will bypass these self imposed protections for the quest of companionship in one form or another...and the downward spiral comtinues and continues...lol.

Then again...I'm not sure about this place...but on another site I was on...the odds were dramatically in favor of the women and it was a literal candy store for the women in choosing men...

I suppose in that case.....a dolfin looks better than a lobster....

I have to agree on this one.....kind of reminds me of what the caretaker said in the Matrix....with humans the problem is "choice".
LOL

But I do agree, about grandma meeting grandpa at the small town church. Your options were limited, and I kind of wish I had grown up in the 40's or 50's where a lot women were more eager to meet men, and were willing to look past their minor flaws.

Heck, they had socials set up for women to meet men, women would VOLUNTEER to meet soldiers at the USO dance, they'd all line up, waiting for their dance partners to arrive, I think even some felt obligated.

I bet I'd get a lot less rejections during those times as well. lol.

There may be lots of fish here but 99% of the people here are emotionally unstable, liars, and generally not ready for any kind of relationship including friendship and couldn't hold a relationship if there life depended on it.

As someone put it the people here are all bottom feeders but I am here just in case someone sane comes by.

Lots of fish, but very few choices.
Therefore, no, not 'toooo many fish in the sea' of POF.

No there's not too many, but I wish we had a 1-1 ratio of men to women...

Catfish,Carp, Sharks. The non eadible type to me. The ratio favors the women no doubt. Make me want to pull the rod out, pack up and take my chances in the grocery isle. At least that way you see it in 3D and not this deceiving matter that seems to flow here. What you see is what you get in the isle. Not the image then the reality!

I forgot the great thing about the ocean is fish aren't the only game in town. There's coral, horseshoe crabs, stinging jellyfish etc.

A sea urchin would make a fine companion.
