im really starting to think they are, I have been on match for a year and a half, have sent out messages to over 200 individuals, they look at my profile and wont even message back, not even an im not interested
imo it is quiet rude
is it me at this point ? and no I don't do any bland message or a simple hi

I imagine they are, friends of mine have used them.. I'm not interested to sign up on one

I think dating could be a waste of time in general, but that's just me.

From my personal experience dating sites have been ok, but I have noticed for a male that a large number of female accounts were fake. It was a ploy to get you to sign up and pay to get more money out of you. I've been in situations exactly what you have experienced. I changed up my profile every so often and continuously made my profile and pictures different. It was like fishing, I used to different bait to lure women to want to say hi and notice me.

You being a female on dating sites which are predominantly male and not getting messages is strange, because women usually get spammed with messages.

I would assume the guys are scared or intimidated with you, or your pictures on this profile show that you aren't a easy catch in which most guys unfortunately pick the easiest targets either because they have no experience or they have more sinister things in mind. I would change up your profile a bit, experiment and see which formula works best for you to get the guys you are interested in speaking, or it could be the dating site all together which is the issue. I am not sure which sites you use but the variables are endless.

It depend of the dating you are on. I can not really speak on this too much. I had never really been involve much in a dating site. I need more money to get the full experience of a dating site. For the men that you message probably just don't care. I would say stay to it and if you still get the same result in the next two to four months. Take a break from online dating or just go to a different one.

Depends, they have helped some and for those people relationships usually stay longer then with someone you just meet from school/work/whatever. But for the majority it doesn't work since you're just "reviewing" someone based on text and pictures which can be modified to only show the good aspects of a person

Yes!
I believe they are a waste of time.

You really think that an arranged marriage would be better than forever alone? Oh my..
