    OMG. I read some really f-d up messages women

    get from guys. I completely understand why you never message back to say you aren't interested.

    in love from these dating sites and good for them but to me it's a big bowl oc BS. I am on match and 95% of the guys on there say they want to get married. this is after everyone talks about how most men don't want to get married. So either these guys on match are all lying...

    Different Online Dating Accounts, Same Stupid Results

    My most recent account was with p l e n t y  o f  f i s h  d o t  c o m.  It was free to sign up and free to email members (unlike other websites where you have to pay before you can email).  Since I tried a paysite before, I thought I'd give this a...

    I've recently asked a question about what you

    would like online dating to be like. Please visit my page and look for the post just below this one. We are doing a lot of complaining and not a whole lot of getting together and brainstorming to fix it.

    I have doing the online dating thing

    for a year and am very disillusioned by the whole experience. I have met (in person) ten men through websites and not one was a keeper! Lets see...Number One was a lying fiend who invited me to lunch and then when walking me to my car started putting his hands all over me and...

    Women just suck in online dating.

    Complain that a guy just wants sex, ignores guys that don't talk about sex. They want someone to looks at their profile. Goes directly to your "profile stats" to judge you. They say they want a good man, but in reality they want either the perfect man, or just want mounds of...

    Online dating sucks,

    but what other options are there? I'm not a bar or club person, I hate sports, and I work with only one other person so meeting a guy through a coworker is out! I was very successful with online dating when I was younger, but now it just feels like all I find are pervs or...

    I don't understand why I am virtually ignored

    online. All men seem to want is sex if they bother to contact me. I don't know where else to meet guys. I'm going to be alone forever.

    Too many to choose from

    and when you do choose you get the shaft after they chat for a while. Most of those I've chatted with are all nice and then it's all about sex. Or I get the straight out of the gate "hey baby"...I'm not your baby unless we are dating. It was so much easier when we were younger

    It's seems like the women on POF stop just

    short of whipping a gun out and demanding that you 'dance for them'.

    Frustrations of Online Dating In the Mid 40s

    I have to admit I am brazen.  I am willing to try new things for the sake of stirring the pot and creating opportunity.  That's why I began online dating after I filed for divorce. I had been married for 8 years to an impossible man - one that no one could please...

    Explain to me why such babes go online to find

    men, it's not like they couldn't get a man. So why do they have to go online? It's not like they wanna talk to regular joes on those sites , it just baffles me as to why they are there. Considering if they look that good they shouldn't have a problem meeting a guy,

    I do not know what to do.

    I have tried using online dating sites, but whenever I try to communcate with someone, I feel like they just abandon me.

    Is It Hopeless?

    I've been struggling with online dating for two years. I don't even want to think about how much money I've wasted. I've tried them all. Of the handful of guys I've exchanged more than a few words with... one started asking for pictures of body parts after only a couple of weeks...

    I'm so sick of perverts

    and weirdos! I've tried online dating a few times, just because I don't know how else to meet someone... I'm starting to think there aren't any nice people left!
