    I went onto a casual dating site that xpected me to pay to message members. There were 2 quite attractive girls and a load of older women who "messaged" and "liked me".

    I tried to make contact by inserting my email onto the site through meme generator on a picture of myself but got no replies. Is this because the site's a scam? Or maybe just they didnt know what was going on

    Basically any site that expects you to pay to message people has an interest in, at best, misrepresenting how many are looking and, at worst, making up stuff a la Ashley Madison.

    Scam! They just grab a random image and pretend the user lives local to you. Then you will fall into a horror click-bait hole in the ground. Most of these sites cull material from other places like free ads and half the people do not even know they are on there. I wouldn't pay anyone for this service: go out and meet people. It's cheaper and better and you at least get a chance to check them out rather than meeting an axe wielding nutter and her freaky husband.
