User does not accept messages from people in your country.Page 1 of 1    
I have written messages in the past to women from Canada. I come up with the coolest introduction messages only to find AFTER I send them that the user does not accept messages from people in your country.

I really could care less if they are not interested in people from where I live or in the U.S.A. Would you please come up with a way to inform the user not to bother writing that person before they write an message? I could change my zip code to someone in Canada, but thats not keeping it real with potential matches. I am listed where I live, you can find a way to match our zip codes and inform me not to bother BEFORE I write something.


Thanks.

You need to read the profile more thoroughly.
Close to the bottom will be a persons mail restrictions. Read them, if any fit you then pass on the message.

Eg, typical restrictions for someone in my area



Mail Settings
To send a message to ???????? you MUST meet the following criteria:
Male
Age Between:50 and 60.
Lives in Canada
Lives within 75 You must have a picture to contact this user.

Seriously, this is a free site & some like restrictions on their email in-box.

Otherwise, it may be filled w/ emails from Nigerian Scammers.

What is wrong with women from other countries trying to scam you. I find it entertaining when they solicit you for money they are very creative. I tell them of course I will marry you . Even if they want it for citizenship. Just raise the money and fly to Guam where I live. I'll meet you at the airport.

Not all of us can read. You assume too much by thinking even if I could read I'd make it past the main picture.

jk.

Still there should be a lock on even starting an email. I understand that many daters are not interested in long distance relationships so it is understandable that they are interested in people from their country. I'll check next time I see a girl from another country and am interested in their profile. Reading the whole 2 paragraphs then writing 2 sentences is such a chore.

OP ...
Well, if you're looking for a "girl" ... that might be part of the problem.

If you are writing to "women" too much younger than you, POF will not allow it. There is a filter on here for that ... or is it an "app"?

Also, a lot of grown (mature) women do not appreciate being referred to as a "girl". I personally don't mind because I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I'm too busy having too much fun to even think about it.

Some girls don't like being referred to as women plural. So if you are a guy on a dating site it is a lose lose situation unless you look like a rock star or famous actor that would avoid pof like the plague.

Nope, just the opposite, still a lose lose and the better looking you are the worse it is.

Look at the numbers.

If you were to sort everyone in a grouping based on a 1-10 scale you would find the majority fit in the 4-7 range with 1% making up either end of the scale.

Then you assume that most people only date within their range of up.

So then if you have a guy that is a 9 or higher he has a very small pool to pick from and deals with as many unwanted emails as the girls

Then you must also take into account that attraction is not a choice, it is what it is and you have no control over it, so complaining about it only makes you a complainer about things you really have no control over.

So now you have a much smaller pool to pick from of compatible mates.


So the people who have it the best, are the average looking people, or good looking people willing to lower their standards just for some azz.
