    I'd it just me or is this almost impossible? I think I'm quite good looking, have good points going for me in my profile and never cone across needy or desperate, but it's just so difficult to get anywhere. Even when I message girls that aren't mega attractive. I can't help but feel even if I was king dingaling himself on these sites it would still be mega difficult. What I've had lately is getting into conversations and the girls just suddenly stop talking! Even though we seem to have some good stuff in common. So are most girls on these sites completely up themselves or is it me?

    The even half-pretty ones are only in it for an ego boost.The only chance you have of procuring gash this way is by focusing on young single mothers and the hoplessly fat who happen to live very locally.

    Well, I have been on dating websites before so I can give you in insight. I find it easier to just ask for msn or number to talk because on the dating website, unless the conversation is very interesting, it dies out. And when it dies out, there's nothing you can do, it's over :/

    here goes

    * you're right about the pretty ones going in for an ego boost
    * afraid to 'make it offline' , recent threads on this matter provide proof that they will let a good opp go by because OH NOEZ IT'S THE INTERNET !!

    I have had good experiences BUT and I hate to admit it, they are online for a reason.

    whether it's ego boost/afraid to talk to guys in real life, or simply restricted by family etc ..

    the 'gem's' as in, very pretty, intelligent, albeit shy girls tend to be very hidden (the ones without profile pics) and you need to search hard for them.

    as my own personal experience, the last 4 went like this;

    - was my gf but then we broke up
    - was nice, just lived too far
    - met me, but as i found out later, she found herself a bf prior she met me and only met me out of obligation?
    - only wanted to meet me for sex.

    that's another point.

    if you don't meet within a month - forget it, they've lost interest

    also try to get them too meet as soon as possible otherwise they can over-think it, "omg would be it awkward?" etc ...

    I know people - young people - who have used them very successfully. Dont bother with free ones, if someone is serious they'll be prepared to pay for it. Applies for both buys and girls.

    girls are illogical mate. I'd just try and shake it off, and don't take it personally

    they can get 'put off/weirded out' by the smallest detail, and this isn't limited to online here.

    hot girls can be conceited at times too, like think about, a girl might get 100 msgs and it can inflate her ego, so it's like well it was just 1 guy? there's more .. so often you aren't given the time

    I tried a dating site for a while and never got anywhere. I think lots of women on there don't really want to meet up with anyone. One time a girl said she's meet up with me but then changed her mind. She said she wanted to get to know me before meeting in person. I don't know how she intended to do that without meeting me. I mean with dating without the Internet, it's pretty normal to meet someone before you know them. But for some reason people are extra suspicious when it's over the Internet.

    I gave up on them. I looked at a pay one, but it was £15 a month and I'm not willing to pay that.

    I've been on the dating sites since 2003 and have only had 3 dates. So I don't know, but what I do know is that Match used to make fake profiles, and even went as far to get employees to go on dates with some of them.
    Just google match and fake dates etc. and you should find a few.
    They are pretty much a scam most of the time.
    Plus Picky people tend to go on sites, except us offcourse
    But some who are wanting a rich man tend to go on there I reckon.

    There are some genuine ones but they probably shy to go on dating sites.

    He's got a point though. If you met loads of women in your everyday life, why would you go on a dating website? It's why I tried it. But apparently I usually can't meet women online either.

    It's about expanding your chances. I meet women in everyday life but it tends to be in clubs/bars and is only a bit of fun, and not somewhere you can meet a future wife. It's hard to meet women like that in everyday life, especially as my forming/future career is very individual based.

    Oh Psyk, you have just such a cute little poopsikin face! You don't need to go on a dating website. Just keep meeting women and you'll most likely find someone.
    I think he's already found someone! Go on Psyk and Anony mouse.. get that PM sex flowing

      Just give up.

      If you give up, you won't come across as desperate. If you don't come across as desperate, you'll find someone eventually.
