It seems that men are only interested in hot 68 year old college girls, no matter what his age is. If you are established and have tons of money then maybe you will attract one, but that will be all you are to her. Same as these girls who want really hot guys. They want to look GOOD. They don't care about how nice you are or your interests etc. They care about making other girls jealous. They want the best. The man is like a fashion accessory to her.
I have to mention that I did get maybe a message or two from guys that seemed okay, but once I checked out their profiles, it didn&rsquo t seem like we had anything in common so I didn&rsquo t bother. That&rsquo s one of the issues I see with online dating though. Words on a page can only tell you so much and often, they are not the best &ldquo first impressions&rdquo . Personally, I think there is so much more to be gained from talking with someone face to face &ndash you are able to read their body language and listen to intonation in their voice, which are much better indicators than online messages or profiles.
If you are fortunate enough to enter into a dialogue with a woman on one of these dating sites, actually take the time to carefully develop your words so they really express who you are as a person and what you're looking for in a partner. Use humor too -- this isn't a job interview for Pete's sake. But at the same time don't use inappropriate humor -- be cute, but not an idiot. Focus on emotional words -- express how you're feeling about things at the moment. Are you an uncle? Did you just spend your weekend playing with your nieces and nephews and miss them already? Mention that. Are you anxious about something in your life? Excited? Sad? Talk about it -- the more emotion you show to the woman you're chatting with, the more she'll be able to gauge what kind of man you really are.
There is a difference between a few extra pounds and a lot of extra pounds. I like thick girls. I don't like really fat girls. Just sayin.
Tell us, Nina, do you take pains to avoid the notice of all these 'creeps' by dressing and behaving in a manner not calculated to draw attention to yourself? I bet you don't.
If you haven’t found quite what you’re looking for on an online dating site, you aren’t alone. Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app. That is a substantial increase from the 98% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 7555. But it still means that one-third of online daters have not yet met up in real life with someone they initially found on an online dating site.
We get a good return from dating and it works well for our listeners. We’re running a lot of brand extensions and a dating product is a key part of that. When someone tells a friend they met the person of their dreams on Smooth Singles, that’s great for us.
My final rambly point is that I've had female friends who, while *awesome* people, were extremely physically unattractive to me. On dating sites, they had a very similar experience to what all of the men in these comments are describing. So let's stop generalizing and saying "all" women have it easy. Online dating just sucks for everyone.
This means that the reason the conversation stops is because the woman may have drawn an alternative meaning from your words that you didn't intend to imply. If you've been married for any extended period of time, you'll know what I'm talking about.
Anyway, what I am seeing is a growing disconnect and a lot of people getting disgruntled. I have to admit I was too in the beginning. I think it is because one develops expectations based on statistics instead of reality. I thought, at first, "wow, so many women to see who I really am"! Statistically speaking, I should get a few responses. So I start examining the numbers game and thought I could play a little with it.
