so the testimonials ive read so far suggest this site is a waste of time for about 99% of people? any thoughts on this anyone? btw whats hilarious is ive met more women on tagged then here, has anyone ever seen how crappy that site is? i guess since you dont have to write a bunch of lies about who you think you are (cause get real most of us have a superficial view of ourselves). instead on tagged you just have a picture and actually have to talk to the person to find out about them. not read some bs profile full of lies. now dont get me wrong. apparently some people do find what there looking for on here and it is a much nicer and well maintained site compared to tagged.

so ive met zero people and maybe 1 half-ass worthwhile conversation, was kinda depressed at the time so i imagine i was a bore but oh well. so here's the question. how many people have actually met any worthwhile people on this site? seriously considering deleting this account and just forgetting this site altogether

I'm beginning to think the same thing. Seams all they want is to hook up and fool around. I have been on here for almost a couple of years and other than a hand full of meets have not met anyone real or normal. If they are normal the spark is not there for me or they live too far away.

Actually, I think patience is a big key. I've met a nice gal on here who's very smart, gas a great smile and a great sense of humor, has a good head on her shoulders and, well, she's pretty cute too! We've been seeing each other for the past three months and have planned a camping trip together next month! We'll see where it goes from there, but it's looking pretty good.

Before that, I had been on this site for a full year!! Granted, there's not much to choose from where I live. Finding girls who are somewhat intelligent, don't have a ton of baggage, are somewhat attractive and have a lick of common sense ... yes, all in one person ... is kind of hard to come by. I guess patience really is a virtue in some cases. :)

Ive been on here for years and it doesnt work. men lie to just get laid and arent looking for anything serious or they all think they deserve tens so this site is a joke


Oddly enuogh; the only time women DO follow through is when they are seeking sex.

Those who are looking to date dont come through FOR the dates.

I think someone poured oil in the water.

Yes it does work, patience is the key, I met two people in the last month that I've had a connection with, but now I've met an amazing person on this site and I've decided to take things more seriously. I look forward to seeing how things develop.

I don't know if you could call it "working" - I've had one 8 month relationship where he decided he wasn't ready to date (widower) and didn't know if he ever would be. I was already seeing issues but hadn't gotten to the point of backing out.

Had a 2.5 year relationship after that. Although maybe I should say a 6 month relationship with 2 yrs of off and pseudo-on until he finally ran away. Another 'I don't know I'm ready for a relationship and don't know that that's what I even want'.

I'm not judging "success" by whether the relationship lasts forever. I judge it by how it ends. It's one thing if it ends due to incompatibility. Another thing when it ends because it was doomed from the start by one person not even wanting a relationship and the other person deluding themself that there's more there than there is.

Not blaming pof. Not blaming the men. I must have a broken picker.

I put in a few evening's work and got some real life dates out of it. They came to nothing, but I think you could say that it sort of worked.
I haven't got the energy to work that hard again for a while though.
