Time wasters
Posted: 1/12/2019 10:18:54 AM
"I won't meet anyone till I've messaged them a week or two and got a good feel for them
I won't give out my phone number until we've had a few good texting conversations."

Same, a week is a decent amount of time for me to know whether I want to take it a little further.

If a guy doesn't want to wait then bye lol.

Is this girl testing my nerves ?? Please advice !
Posted: 1/12/2019 10:01:54 AM
I'm afraid she's just not that into you; as the saying goes.

Put your time and efforts into someone else.

getting screwed on the first date
Posted: 12/31/2018 12:31:04 PM
I simply take it in turns if we're going out for drinks the guy normally pays first and I will get the second round.

I refuse to go to dinner for a first date, it's not worth the risk if you don't get on. It's two hours you'll never get back.

Back to work on Thursday. I actually don't mind after all of the time off and general laziness of Christmas.

Why am I not getting replies
Posted: 12/27/2018 4:12:58 PM
What normally draws me in is when guys emails something humorous to me. Something that is intended to make the reader laugh or smile. I sit up and take notice of those sort of messages as I don't get funny messages that often and I do appreciate them.

What are things you see in dating profiles that will make you sadly skip past them?
Posted: 12/27/2018 3:44:06 PM
Marital status-Separated
Yes I agree with this. The last few guys that admitted they were separated were still living at home with the wife lol.

Guys exposing their bare chest.
I just move on, I don't even bother look any further.

Posing in the high end cars
It looks so thirsty, not to mention the car could easily not be theirs anyway.

Guys who pose with someone else
Just why? Folks will probably be disappointed when you reveal who you are lol

Guys with just sunglasses pictures. I don't mind sunglasses pics, but not all of them.
I like to see a man's eyes.

Ladies. how many messages do you receive?
Posted: 12/27/2018 3:19:21 PM
No of course not, but then I wouldn't bother just saying "hi" in the first place if that's all I could manage. And who said it needs to be lengthy, I only asked for an introductory sentence lol.

I've emailed guys in the past, normally to comment on how well written their profile is which is normally appreciated.

Ladies. how many messages do you receive?
Posted: 12/27/2018 2:51:55 PM
I still get a decent amount, I received 18 messages today, other days that it can be a lot more than that and then other days a lot less. It's sort of peaks and troughs...

But as others have said a lot of them are just a simple "hey" or "hi." I mean at least try and go for a whole sentence lol.

The deal with Meet Me'?
Posted: 12/27/2018 7:42:30 AM
Don't invest too much time, effort and thought in it. It is designed to get folks (mainly men) to upgrade. Not worth it at all.

Ironically I've done a bit better from Tinder than I have on here.

This was a decent topic on the relationship forum
Posted: 12/10/2018 12:40:27 PM
I get my fair share of interest in the 'real world,' but not necessarily the sort of interest that I would like. Dating sites just casts the net that little bit further and gives me a few more options and enables me to meet people who I wouldn't necessarily meet in every day life.

Is it too early for Christmassy jumpers?
Posted: 12/2/2018 1:13:58 AM
I only really buy mine to wear at the office Christmas lunch and I may wear it on the day itself.

It’s a posh Joules Christmas jumper, I could probably get away with wearing it other times of the year as it’s nit that Christmassy.

I would just straight block, don't even give these people the attention that they crave.

Well there's no point getting angry about it, not everyone is going to like you. Save your energy and move on!

Profiles that Turn the Ladies on ???
Posted: 9/8/2018 9:27:15 AM
I really like a well written profile. I like people who put some time and effort into their profiles.

Unfortunately they are very far and few between.

Is she fake
Posted: 9/8/2018 9:09:21 AM
Or maybe she's just wary about giving out her cell number, understandable and I wouldn't be as quick to class her as a fake for being cautious.

No Dinner
Posted: 9/8/2018 9:06:35 AM
I made the mistake of going for dinner with the first guy I met on here. I didn't really want to but he was gently persistent (should have listened to my gut). Two hours I'll never get back...

Drinks or coffee is totally sufficient for a first date, for me anyway!
