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


personally I have found match to be useless since there arnt alot of people on it due to the fees. Use a free dating website for a bit and try that I've had some good luck on Tinder and okcupid.

Then you would trick him or make him think its okey (since his allready in prison?) but most likely not right at it, but more "do you remember that time" etc, and digging a bit into why he wanted or what she did and they did together.

like "was you feeling like this before, planning or was it something you two was going for?" since I could not stop with such cases, like I feel so ill when nothing is "explained" how things went, if its something they both choose, was mostly him, what did she want/think and if she somewhat had something (some bad feelings, past etc) that made her go to such lengths?.


and damn what did we turn this thread into?


You would make a good criminal investigator, this thread did turn off the intended path.

I promise to keep my mouth closed to keep the thread on topic.

Yea Tinder has a bad reputation but I'm a guy so it's probably different for me I dont get girls sending me nasty messages. And POF is ratchet af. But you should at least give okcupid a shot or you can try meetup and find groups of people who like the same stuff as you and maybe youll find someone there

Well watching some detective/fantasy series then I kind of get it (you HAVE to see extreme sides in order to prevent them? you know think like they think)
- psycho pass
and
poirot

What I would say is bad that I could not calculate a different direction or don't want to (lazy, don't want to see) alt paths.

Where you can't say that fantasy content is useless, where created things can allways mean something and so on (but both sides can have "no meaning" or just less why its there)

Yes. I did that eharmony one many years ago just out of curiosity to see who it would match me with. I'm still waiting for a match.

.... While it may be true that I never got a single match in many years I suppose I'll answer honestly here.

I think they can work but I think it's just a numbers game. I think it just takes talking to hundreds of people just to find a few decent ones to date and then many hundreds more to find one that has marriage potential. I think it would be easier to try and find people you are interested in through activities that you like.

I just woke up though so if I seem out of my mind or like that answer is an incomplete thought that would be why.

I have no experience with dating sites, but they do kinda seem like a waste of time to me...especially if you have to pay.

Guys are usually pretty simple. Don't be fat, don't be ugly, don't be psychotic, and don't be a b****. And those last two things are often overlooked.

Girls are like "hey, you have to be tall, good looking, smart, athletic, earning at least 70k a year, fun but not overboard, here for a long term relationship, honest but nice, compatible with my zodiac symbol, you need to have a car and your own house, you must like pets and kids, you must be artistic but hardworking, polite but a good conversationalist, you must message me first, your message needs to be interesting but not too long, you need to confident but not a douchebag. Oh and you need to be adventurous but have a clean record. You must also be disease free, not clingy/jealous, and be good in bed but I'm not here to hook up. I'm a grown woman and I know what I want, so too bad if you can't handle me." And this list gets cut in half for every 5-10 years they age lol

Yep very true its easier for guys once our careers are established in our 30s and 40s. It gets harder for women as they age.

And then they call men pigs when they see then with younger women even though half of them want their guy to be older than them.

Dating in general is a headache but we still do it for some reason lol

Well thankfully karma catches up with them in the end. In many ways women are like cars they depreciate every year you "drive" it. Thats why you gotta trade the car out for a newer model every couple of years

Well, hopefully you don't mean that. I find the comparison to be a tad bit disturbing.

Scientifically it's because women can only have a limited amount of children during a small gap of time in their life, while men are able to have as many children as they want throughout their entire life. Men don't have to be extremely picky, while women are more picky because it is more high risk for them and they can only have a limited amount of offspring.

They're obviously not thinking about that while they're being picky, but it kinda gives an understanding on why they are.
