The anger is good,.....and that's all part of the online dating experience.

The key is in "accepting" that it's fake. LOL.

What makes the Forums fun is the participation of everybody,....so don't delete just yet,....you may have something funny to add later on.

This is regarding the comments on page 3.

I read through this thread and wondered, "should I even justify all of this with a comment?".
I decided "yes", because children really do run amuck if left undisciplined.
Remember The Lord of the Flies?

Boys, boys, boys. Stop all this bickering. It's a beautiful day outside, run along. The tether-ball is waiting.
Oh, and for heaven's sake, grow up and stop calling me fat.

Yes, Plenty Of Fish can and does work.

Just before I commence rondo, I shall retrieve one of my favourite quotes:


arguing over the internet. Even if you win, you are still retarded.


Obviously, the people it has worked for are going to say that it works.
It may have for you and I am happy for you. But that does not instantly assume that it wil work for everyone, despite their attitude, behaviour etc.

Let us assume that there really are 18 million dates made this year (as the introduction page informed me). So given this rough estimate, we'll assume that there are 30 million members.

Do you think that this site will work for thirty million people? hardly. 20 Mill? five mill? even 1 million per year?

No.

And I wasn't asking pyou period. I couldn't care less about you or whether your
girlfriend is fat or not.

Anyways, on to more important things like ants...haha, no seriously. To the former posters (before bodywhatshisname posted), it's common sense that the site is not going to work for everyone. But it is also common sense for it to work for some.

Almost in any large mass of people, there are bound to be some meetings. If this
was not a dating site, but still consisted of the same amount and style of members., people would be bound to meet at some point.

Now, I could remain posting on an online forum attempting a smartass to random posts, but that job has been fulfilled I see. I might do something more worthwhile.
Then agaion, that is almost anything.

Is it worthwhile to point out that the site will work for some and not for others? That should be self evident. Your point deserves a less than serious reply, because you are saying absolutely nothing of any insight or value.

Conversely I don't care if you can't get yourself a girlfriend. Thin, fat, ugly, pretty, or otherwise.
Edit: Oh, sorry! You're not looking for a girlfriend, you're just auditing the site.

A few people have posted that women aren't serious because this site is free and so other sites should be better... actually all computer dating sites are basically free for women, Yes, on other sites the first message is paid and it is free to respond after, but how many women send the first message? If they do make first contact, it is with a free smile or something similar. Dating sites make their money off the men. I have heard that some sites even go as far as sending men messages from women that don't exist.

That being said, I believe that women are serious about dating and meeting.. some women are overwhelmed. On a site like this, even undesireable ones get messages and dates. Generally not so much for men tho.

In reallity, a few men date many women and others date none. POF is no different in that respect.

I think allot of women are just waiting for someone to send the right messages and don't reply to many men... it is a way to save time.

Your chances are as good as being the best one to contact her that day or week. Same as if you had a date with 2 women on the same night, you would choose the better one

Women are weiging their options. In reallity, it is a little like the online version of the bar.

People meet there too.

It is the same with all dating sites no matter what they say.

Of course time runs out for women who wait too long as the clock is always ticking and they know it.

The vast majority of men, and I mean majority are in a relationship of some kind on this site. My ex-husband, who is now my friend, has even used this site and has told me that every woman that he has met, has either been married, going through divorce or contemplating about going back to their ex-boyfriends or ex-husbands. I am on here to educate those who are really wanting to find healthy relationships with the promise of love and happiness, You won't find it here. From my perspective, most people on this site are desperate. If you ever read anything on most profiles that say coming here rather than going to a bar is much easier, we all know that going to a bar isn't about meeting women, its about meeting them and with luck get to have sex with them. Men on this site, from my experience, they decieve you into thinking they want a relationship, but they really don't.

You've never discussed anything with me and you're probably projecting about the age issue. If you're thinking I'm suggesting you're nonsensical, lying, and stupid to boot, well, for once you're correct.

You got lucky. AND your female. Online dating was practicly created for females! You just post a profile and wait for the mail to come in!

If your a guy you send out a million pieces of mail and if your lucky you get one response, and it's ussually a rejection letter.

I can only WISH to have had similar erxperiences as those mentioned above but alas for me, it's been about a year now and all I've experienced thus far is MANY Read but never replied to or Read/Deleted :(

Do note that the only reason I am mentioning it here is only to give a more realistic version of what happens on this site :)

This is my second time here. I joined a few years ago and found it quite sucessful. Had some lovely dates and short term friendships. Had no problems at all.

Coma White, you're correct in what you say about some being married. My dear nephew who is 32 had a bad experience from this site a while back.

Talked to a lady for ages and decided to take her out for dinner. Evening went well..... drinks afterwards in a quiet bar then her HUSBAND turned up! She ran over to him and said "this guy wont leave me alone!"

My nephew felt the force of this man's fist many times. He no longer uses internet dating.
