How are you finding this site for dates?

Absolutely terrible, 2 dates in 5 months (nice ladies, but not for me) and I'm not exactly bad to look at or talk to. Been on and off here since 2010. Had a few dates, made a few friends, but the vast majority (not all) of women seem to be on here for an ego boost only. Don't get me wrong, maybe the majority of guys are too, I don't know! Some may send a message and no matter how good your reply is, leaving the door open for conversation, you won't get a reply.

I've experimented plenty of times on here; sent out 30 original mails to different women without a single reply. I always have to wait for a lady to message first.

In my experience, if you're looking for someone nice who will date, avoid;
"Looking for a genuine lad/gal"
"Willing to lie about how we met"
"Don't take myself too seriously"
"Michael Buble just hasn't met me yet"

And ladies; if looking for a good guy & a relationship, state so rather than "wants to date but nothing serious".

too generic....supermarket shopping.....majority of Ir. men my age are crumpled, pudgy, nondescript and that's only talking about their bio/profiles. .....

Trust me ...it's not just back home in the auld sod that this shite is happening. I'm in the US and it's the same crap. Granted I am a fuggly **** but hey I have an Irish accent :P

But yes ...getting a lot of no responses ...but I have been out with a couple of ladies from the site.

Managed to get a few dates out of the site. Must be the good looks. (lol)

Okay, seriously. Sometimes I got a half dozen messages a week. Other times... nothing for a month. Sometimes I message people, sometimes they message me. Often times, I get no replies. Sometimes, I strike gold.

Like I said in a previous thread, I think people underestimate the importance of common interests. Check out people who actually bother to put some effort into their profile, and respond to people who actually put in the effort when they contat you.

It's much harder to catch the fish without the correct bait, right?

I have never had any problems dating on this site or making friends. I am not an alpha male, not tall or the hottest guy on the site.

The problem with Irish guys is frankly most of you are perverts, you don't treat women with respect, you have almost zero female friends so have no idea how to talk to women. This is the simple truth, my friends all tell me the same thing time and again that every single guy they meet on here is the same.

So what sets me apart:
I have respect for women but I also have balls,I can have a laugh,I can make a woman laugh, get mad at me, get butterfly's in her stomach and really feel emotion. I am picky,not interested in casual sex,I believe in romance, masculinity and the beauty of femininity.

Sure some women have high expectations but all expect effort.

i think maybe what shes trying to say.... and im going to dress it up a little is...... that some profiles have absolutely nothing on them whats so ever..... and when a profile messages you saying the same generic thing like hi how are you lol
hi sexy..... etc etc and you have a look at the corresponding profile and there is nothing on it, it just makes starting a conversation that little bit harder and therfore not much interest to messaging them... the only way i can put it is...... we are all little stories..... so why dont we use our profile as our description..... when buying a book... we look at the description... if it takes our fancy we want to read the book more.... so maybe treat pof like that.... might have someone who wants to read your book ;) this answer maybe a little out there for some people but take what ya like and leave the rest :)

If all the lads complaining in this thread were smart and used a bit of positivity to a site like POF. I would look at it this way. We are always going to be in the majority on a site like here. Just accept that!!! Also because there are a lot of time wasters and lazy guys on here who put in no effort in their profile and who send the same mails, if you do get a date then you must have either surprised a girl on here or put in a lot of effort to get there so half the battle is already done as you are on the right side of the girl. Take that as a positive lads!!!! I joined here before christmas and only now have started coming on regularly and putting in the effort. Its like anything in life, you have to put in the effort to get the results. Oh yeah and be nice. Nobody likes a tool.

The "genuine guys" are not "losing out" because of ***holes.

Contrary to popular belief, women do not like abusively obnoxious jerks that treat them like crap. They like men with backbone, capable of treating them as equals, but still able to talk for themselves. If they want someone to unconditionally pine after them, they'll have children. Women can smell misogyny a mile off.

In the last year on here I've managed to net myself 4 dates... and more importantly, 4 new friends. One woman a few years ago I ended up dating for nearly three years. I'm one or the most genuine and honest people you'll ever meet. I'm not much of a looker either, so it definitely isn't my looks doing it.

I think a lot or people just message whoever they can find, and hope that being nice will be enough to build a connection. It isn't. You need to find someone that shares common interests with you. You need to ask them about those common interests. If they're interested, they'll reciprocate the feelings.

Just glancing through half these profiles, most of you say barely anything about who you are or what kind of person you want to meet.

If you don't even know what you're looking for, how can you find it?

It seems that the general view is the site is nothing but a waste of time . Catfish comes to mind . I've been on and off and read a lot of what has been written about so called people who meet and fall in love and get married , thats like vodafone telling you that you have free txts for a month , you'll use them until they run out . It's sad because all the idiots on here pretending to be some they are quiet clearly not ruin it for those who are genuine . Looks like the online world is no different to the so called real world .

Yes ur def right there. Loads of people pretending they are single & looking for someone when they are actually not & only messing & totally different from their profile.
