    I'm a guy and all I seem to get on the Match dating site is women viewing my profile then moving on, no email, nothing, do they not get how it works or do they think it works like 'traveling' which they seem so fond off - visit profile,look, then move on. I just can't see how that site functions at all if that is what all what happens.

    How long have you been on there? What is your profile like? If people don't get interested straight away they're likely to move on. But I wouldn't take it personally. The point is to find someone with whom you may have a legitimate connection, not just everyone on the site.

    Been on there a long time, a few years and its all women seem to do, I've heard the same from other guys as well. By 'legitimate connection' I can assume rich guy or Brad Pitt look a like.

    Online dating is difficult for men.

    I was on POF for a few months. I had 50+ views on my profile, yet only four women reply to my messages. They all stopped replying, the most enthusiastic of them actually blocked me.

    Women have a lot of options on dating sites. Don't take it personally.

    Honestly, she probably just wasn't feeling it, and that's 100% okay. It would have been nice, however, for her to simply tell me just that rather than block me...though I can perhaps understand that was the easier option.

    I've seen online dating profiles for women. 90% of messages they get are absolute crap, and I feel sorry they have to put up with such bs. That said, the 10% of decent messages they get, most will ignore that too. Then they have the nerve to moan they can't find a decent guy on those sites.

    Decent guy by which they mean rich guy, I mean don't they recognize that they are highly unlikely to find stuff like that on these dating sites. I mean its not like I'm clinically obese like a lot of females seem to be that use these sites. I just find women that ignore or block just because they are no longer interested just so ignorant, I bet they wouldn't like it done to them. A polite things have changed final message would be far less rude.
