women used for sex is the biggest problemPage 1 of 1    
Robby? You are not doing anything wrong. The biggest problem men have on dating sites is competition. There are far more men than women on these sites as a result the women we are attracted to are bombarded with offers daily. For that reason you are getting little response from the women you find attractive, since they are getting offers from so many other men you are placed in a descending list of men they would date first and you are beat out by the competition. Most women would think there is nothing wrong with that but their are a great percentage of women being used for sex by players on this site. So they choose to date the more attractive player rather than the sincere more average looking guy. This is the problem of every man on POF except for really handsome men and really handsome players, they get plenty of email an acceptance of their offers.

Secondly y0u cannot display your personality on the internet effectively. Your profile can only do so much, so you cannot show any other great qualities that might impress women such as kindness, integrity, humor.

There is not much you can do to improve your POF experience since all of what I said above will never stop, but in your real life you should simply join groups and clubs of people who have similar interest to your own and attempt to meet people that way.

" Secondly y0u cannot display your personality on the internet effectively." that simply means that in person you can win people over with your personality whereas on line your photo will be the deciding factor and the content of your profile will mean little. In other words if people are not impressed with your photo nothing you can say in your photo will make a difference. Smart men will look to see if your profile is smartly written but the content means little unless it is obnoxious.

Men are not contacting you because of the content of your profile. They are concerned more about your photo.

Having no photo is 100% the problem in my opinion
