From this site, I've had dates with 3 women. One is a friend, but nothing more, the other is a boozing drug addict that uses me like her therapist, and the third is an amazingly gorgeous woman that I would have never thought to be real, but I felt more like an older brother to her and I gave her tips on how to be safer.

I've been a member of this site for over 3 years, and have not met anyone in person. To be fair, though, I took a break for a year or so. I have only recently began to be somewhat active again.

Man.......................

I wish that I could answer this question with a short post.

But since I've exceeded my "short post" allotment, I have to do all of this excessive typing just to be able to get out one simple, easy, and brief line.

I'm going on all of them!

I have to absolutely agree with MeloFelo - criticizing POF is like standing still in a grocery store and wondering why your shopping cart isn't being filled. It's also like people who complain about not being employed - but who never send a resume out and wonder why everyone else is getting jobs.

I've only been on the site less than a month now, and I've had a really good time. Oh sure, there were points of frustration, insecurity, and self-doubt - but that's to be expected with any new adventure. I'm not God's gift to women, but I've certainly faired pretty well. And I attribute that to taking my time, researching the lay of the land, and putting my best foot forward. I selected my best pics (based upon what women had to say) and thought long and hard about writing my profile.

It really just goes back to getting that dream job in life... you have to have a really strong resume... and interviewing skills as well. It takes time, research, and effort to bring these things to fruition. It's like the saying goes: "you get back what you put out." Oh yeah, for those of you who have no pictures on your profile and are complaining, you really can't complain in good faith can you? No picture - no response, as the saying goes. It's kind of silly to question why you're not receiving replies.

And finally, when I was a lad and went we had to try all kinds of: different bait, lures, line, and holes in order to catch the fish. It takes time and patience and understanding... which it seems some here are either lacking - or are not prepared to learn. But I guess in a sarcastic kind of way... better for guys like me ... less competition.
