WAY to many fake accounts, New users is nothing but bollocks now, So fake it would be impossible for them to be there if there was any regulation or checks from whoever runs this thing now.

Bye all hope you find what you are looking for, but it won't be on here.

I believe Dating fatigue is very real. You should consider a time out from here, but not from dating.

Most of these women will sit here and not do a thing for the so called love they bang on about. They put in zero effort so why should you. Frankly it's quite pitiful.

A dating site where you get no replies is just a waste of time.
Add to that my age of 61 and women my age become very scary !
I suppose at least the women on here are real.
I get emails from a Russian site that is simply a page full of young Russian models !
As if they are gonna date a 61 year old man !

Yep it is! I had a break from here in August '16 to March '18. I was at a loss to understand why I was not succeeding (still am, tbh) I kept my profile hidden and used to check in on the Forums, but did not chance my arm at any dating. I returned with fresh eyes and enthusiasm and have discovered that it is now even worse. After my rant on the other thread, 14 profiles .... etc 25 miles, blah blah.... I was messaged, out of the blue by an admin, telling me if I was not happy with my results I should expand my parameters? What if i don't want to date someone a 100 miles away? I would but, what if I don't?

I have a theory here, Brian.

There is a narrow minded conception, that there is always better in the next message and on the next search! Hence, perfectly good people are being ignored and overlooked. They are blind to see the endearing qualities in profiles all because they want better than what is available. If Men's profiles are deemed to be too nice, you are overlooked. The Ladies are waiting for better than what is available?

This leads to my other theory. If the type of Lady I am looking for is not on here and the Ladies are not pro-active in coming forward to message me. I am absolutely convinced that my type of partner is not an online dating user and then it flips to that I actually want better than what is available! Impasse!!! I know quite a number of people who have had and have a lot of success on here, but it eludes myself, hence my potential partner is not an OLD user.

At Christmas, I was meeting professionally up to a 1,000 people a week and still no luck? Even now I can meet up to 300+ people a week and still nothing? I cannot work it out, hence my theories?

They want you to expand your parameters because if us so called 'gullible' men give up on love, and say bye bye. Their business model crumbles ;)
