I Have Had 2 Dates Within 6 Days Of Joining POF !!Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Here's the score: 27 messages in 4 days at POF, 9 of those messages were responses from women I messaged first, the others are messages of women making initial contact. This place is as great as my buddies claimed even though a few of those women were too old for me.

Anyways I have good news and bad news. 1 date went bad the other one went amazing. I'll let you guys in on the bad date first.

I corresponded back and forth with a 29-year-old nice-looking female that made initial contact with me. I knew she liked me because she initiated the chat. We exchanged cellphone numbers, we moved over to chatting on the phone. I like to move fast so I didn't wait too long to tell her for us to go out on a date, she said "Yes why not". This was on Saturday night so we agreed for Sunday which was yesterday. I took a shower, dressed up and even put an air-refreshner in my car lol. We agreed to go out at 6:00pm. At 5:00pm I started off to the address she gave me (a highrise building, she never gave me her apartment number). As I was going I texted her "Okay babe I'm on my way, do you mind if I arrive a little early? We can go to Tim Horton's for our coffee and chat for a while".

She sent me a text message within 1 minute: "Tim Horton's? You know what forget it, I don't go to such places for a date". I got p*ssed off!! I mean that coffee place was just the beginning, I was then going to take her to a pricey japanese place and then to the movies! I made a U-turn and proceeded to go home, I did not responded, she didn't merit it and I don't associate myself with women like that, I don't care how pretty she was. I arrived home and took off my shoes and called a buddy to meet up and go out with the guys. At 9:30pm she sent me a text message asking me if I received her last message, I didn't respond. She then called me!! She said "You know you should save your pennies, don't go to coffee shops to spend it, it seems you need every single penny you can save" and hanged up.

At the same time I had already set-up my second date for today since today is a holiday here in Canada. I set up an encounter with a woman I will call "Daniela", not her real POF screen name. We agreed to meet at a park bench at a nearby park that has riding paths and artificial ponds. I went early as usual and sat in the bench and later on saw this sexy beautiful woman wearing a white top and skimpy blue-jeans walking towards me. I thought she was just one more of a dozen female joggers that had passed already. She walked up to me with a smile and asked "Hi are you Jason?". I got up and shook my hand and hugged her. We talked enthusiastically for at least 40 minutes, she told me please come to me near the river I want to fill up this bottle. I was like WTF? Is she going to drink that water? We went to the side of the river and she filled up a water bottle which to this moment I don't know why she needed the water for. I did not spend a penny on her, she didn't even allowed me to buy ice cream for her. What a wonderful girl!! She's into hiking and claims she is an amateur mountain climber, it was a beautiful sunny and hot long-weekend here in Toronto,Canada and we agreed to go somewhere out of the city for another hot weekend. I lied to her though. She asked me if I have facebook and I said "No". She seemed a little surprise. The thing is that I have some females there that kinda like me and my interests might clash, she's going to be able to see all my social life too. I also don't want family members to see my dating life. Tonight we plan on chatting on the phone for hours, it seems those 3 hours we were together went fast like lightning. There was no make-out or french kisses but who cares, I will have ample time.

I'm happy with my performance and prizes received here at POF!

Girl #1 shallow beautiful gold digger. I see alot of that. If you ain't got the cash, go steppin' cause i'm worth it honey. Snap judgement poor attitude all about her and the cash. Immediately skip.

Girl #2 nice active gal more suited to you.

Bad move on the facebook may come back to bite you. If you want to, make up a profile only for POF. That way you can separate your dating life from your real life. I do not have a facebook account as I don't want to publish my life for all to scrutinize and comment. No need for people to come to a wall to see whats going on. All they have to do is call, text, email or drop bye lol. Isn't that enough rather than a min by min tweet or facebook page update?

I never heard of Timmies, but if this place is like Mc Donalds, that's very insulting to ask a date to meet you there. It would have been better if you had asked her to meet yu at the part like u did with date number 2.

Hmm. I too did not know what a Tim Hortons was so I googled it. Apparently it is a coffee shop that sells sweets, breakfast and snack food similar to a ?? Starbucks or a ??Duncan Donuts? I don't think Starbucks is beneath anyone unless coffee snobbery is involved, lol. Perhaps this lady had a bad experience with someone in a coffee house who knows.

I would want my first date to be at a coffee house to see if there is any spark or chemistry before I start wining and dining so I would say that was a good call.

Kudos on the number or responses. You have fared much better than most at least on these forums from what I can tell.

Merixxx what makes you think I'll still be here in 2 months? Im like hawk and in the next month is when I will get what I want and bail out..... which in my case is a couple fresh friendships that might lead to fun! Also theres real-life dating which is faster and more efficient, dont forget that. Listen Im not old yet, I still have "juice" to get chicks at any club.

Yeah, "juice" lol... It is what it is and glad to hear you handled that bad date well.
The penny thing... Sorry, laughing here, it reminded me of someone who said the
same to me because she wanted me on her rotation and I was staying away from her.

She and met a 10pm at Starbucks, then walked a casino for a bit. We had a few great
dates for dinner and lunch later in the month. All the while I'm sending her pics of
my lunches at popular Vegas restaurants and bars.

I had business out of state and came back to take her on a 5K shopping date but I
only gave her 3 days to respond because I knew she was keeping her relationship
from me. Yet, she blamed me for not inviting her places. I had my friend at Bottega
drop their handbag catalog at her work - a popular seafood joint in Mirage. I dropped
in to flash the cash discreetly while he was managing the floor. After 5 days she texted
me telling me I objectified women, yada, yada...

On the 3rd night I went out and grabbed one of my stripper friends from her club
and took her shopping and posted pics on Myspace where she could find them. I
ended up going on a helicopter tour and to a gun range with another dancer I know
and flying to S.F. to date this cute, young colored girl I met at the Venetian the night
I flashed the cash at the first girl, who revealed herself after lots of teeth pulling to
be an amateur hooker.

I might be odd, but I don't think so highly of myself that I feel I am entitled to be taken someplace that costs a certain amount. It's not a free dinner I'm interested in---its the person I'm going with. If I want to go to a pricey place, I'll take myself there and pay for it. The fact someone is taking their time and making an effort to befriend me is what matters to me..... even if it means driving my Corvette to Mcdonalds. I don't understand the problem with that............ just because a guy (or girl) doesn't have a lot of money, it doesn't mean they don't have something amazing to contribute to my life or mine to theirs. I get the whole "make a good first impression" but I certainly don't expect a huge expenditure of money and time from someone that doesn't even know me nor I them. Just sounds a little too 'diva-ish' for me. How about a walk in a park or a carry out pizza? I just don't understand the posturing and pretense. Get to know each other and the fancy night out could be an expression of affection for each other and not just a 'get a second date' ticket.

On the next date, have the girl take a real picture of you.. Self pictures are tacky. Seriously.. I don't want to see your phone.

I have been on this list for a little over a month. So far I have not had any dates. I am only looking to meet new friends. My wife passed away earlier this year from ALS. I have tried to honest about all of this. I believe in treating people with respect and I expect the same from them. Many women on this list say they are looking for an honest man. I don't believe they would not know what to do if they found one. I have been around the block a few times and I can tell when someone is not interested for whatever reason. How do you really judge someone without meeting them? Oh well. I will just keep plugging along and see what happens.

chasechrome46, I'm sorry to hear about your wife. But as for this site, wait until you've been here a few years. Still nothing. And yet I keep trying. Maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment. lol. And from what I've experienced here, what you say about woman saying they want an honest man, is true. Yet, I do really believe they want an honest man. It's just that they don't usually specify all the other characteristics they are looking for, and of which would rule out most of the entire world male population.

Agree with you about girl 2

Though it is possible girl 1 wasn't being like a gold-digger about the 'cost' of the date but the 'standard' of the estabishment. There must be some reasonably priced but 'nice' coffee places why chose the one he did for a date!

Maybe to her it was an insult if she thought his impression of her was that she would like a place with no class.

Perhaps her nasty insulting phone call was motivated by him understandably not responding to her. Some pople are stupid like that but otherwise nice people.

Likely it 'was' about it being cheap rather than unclassy but that assumption shouldn't be the only consideration people come up with.

Though do think date 1 wasn't worth it. She should have still gone and been polite.

Do people really date or meet off of this site or any dating site for that matter?

Yeah I'm still here but with more than 17 dates that took place, 4 girlfriends that passed through me, and made friends with more than 30 women whom we chat from time to time. I know I can go out with any of them if I pushed hard enough (or tried).

Your predictions were right but are not telling the whole story :)

Youve been 7 years here and no date yet? Are you only contacting model-like women or what? Thats impossible. How about lowering the bar standard a little to include women "with a few extra pounds" and single moms?

All the best to you Jason A. you've got the right attitude for dating. Now I love to date but it does get tiring to me. To those who ask is there real dating on these sites - yes. I've had my share but, I'm still looking for that one boyfriend!
