    Has anyone ever actually met someone off these various dating apps like Tinder, Badoo, POF etc?

    I almost never even get any messages back when I message first..I never recieve any genuine messages first.
    This weekend, I was in london, matched with a load of fakes on tinder, badoo I didnt try, and pof I messaged quite a lot of people who wern't looking for anything serious and just a bit of fun etc..
    I either had no reply, or ones with "you're having a laugh, not with you!" "Eww I wouldn't meet you" "I dont meet fatties" etc etc. Seems for people who are just looking for a bit of fun, there are a lot of shallow people out there.

    Ive not had sex since November last year now, and tired of seeing everyone I know at it like rabbits almost daily. I even tried to book an escort, but every single one I contacted let me down or didnt get back to me.
    Im back home in Cardiff now, and there seems to be even less people here than London! Its making me feel so lonely knowing noone will be close to me

    I'm very much the same mate. Can't get a damn thing.


    Don't let it get you down. Are you otherwise happy with your life? Focus on what you have!

    Hey I understand your pain , before I met people I used to use apps like that but it didn't go down too well and let's just say some people on there are just looking for fun and are selfish , ( not all tho).
    And it's quite easy to feel put down and let down , because of my appearance I used to think I am ugly and that no-one will ever find me attractive , but living with this guilt it hit me so hard that one day I looked in the Mirror and counted my flaws to my perfections and it made me think that everyone has someone for them in life . And everyone is different in what they look for in people . So with this and help from friends I started feeling better and after time , all the people that had said "your ugly" , "who would ever like her" , " urgghh look who comes here" . I fought back to them and standing up for myself and loving myself first helped me a lot. Then I met people online and started talking to them and it's great the amount of people I have now and some of them have never seen me but like my personality .
    Your different that's all and stand out from the rest in your own way , which sometimes people don't like and I know how it is to feel like that . But your not alone , trust me , and you will find some one, just patience is key .
    As of some past I had I gave up on love before and thought it can only give pain and the only way I was to believe that it was a good thing was if I saw that side but I only saw the bad side , so when love came knocking at my door I didn't want to believe it at start but I did eventually and saw the good side to it which changed my view point on it .
    Just wait and try to get out more , as this will help you to try and not only socialise but meet new people too.
