I am almost embarrassed I am considering it but damn my friend showed me that in my area there are a bunch of nice ladies I was suprised so many good lookers would put there pics on the internet.

anyone tried it? was it kinda weird? couldn't be more awkward than normal dating right?

on the plus side if you really screw up hey its a complet stranger and you go your separate ways.

Don't be embarrassed, there are a lot of people on this site that use online dating services.

In my area Yahoo Personals suck. There is maybe one attractive girl and very few active users of the site. Match.com seems to have the widest selection...that is also where I met my current girlfriend.

First you have to decide what you are looking for. Are you looking for some dates and some action or are you looking to find someone to marry? If you want to get married go to eharmony.com.

If you are wanting to play the field then forget about the expensive pay sites and use HotorNot.com's Meet Me feature. It only costs $5 a month and is well worth it. It works by you reviewing people in your area and clicking the Meet Me link. They will be emailed and will check out your profile, if they are interested they will click Meet Me and then she will show up in your double match list and you in hers. So even before you begin talking you know there is at least a mutual interest. In a matter of weeks I ended up with over 50 double matches and talked to probably 25 of them. I'll never go back to the expensive pay sites. If you want tips or more info on HotorNot.com IM me.

Other dating sites are
Yahoo Personals
match.com
americansingles.com
CollegeLuv.com
Lavasoft.com

and if all you want is some action AdultFriendFinder.com

I really don't care for yahoo personals myself because most of the ads on there are fake ass pics of porn sites just looking for you to contact them so they can spam you with porn.

I like match.com the best myself.

I have a buddy who swears by adultfreindfinder.com and alt.com.

I did it and met a really nice girl about 9 months ago but she turned out to be a little fatter in real life. No I didn't hit it and I was an ass and broke up with her. She was really cool and non weird though.

I tried a couple different ones for a while after my divorce. Only met a couple of women thru them, all were a little strange and a lot bigger than they disclosed. Also got spammed by more than a couple of them.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 9:18:43 AM EST
Been there done that on all of them. Yahoo, match, Eharmony etc.
They all suck. I've met more loser shallow women on those sites
looking for the big paycheck and a daddy than if I walked into a
bar. And ofcorse you will get your run in with some REAL freaks as well.
Had a woman break out the wedding planner thing on the 3rd date!!
she was like so if we getting married on this date and I can do this and this
and our first child will be born X date. Never once did I ever say ANYTHING about marriage and sure as hell wouldn't to someone I have only been on 2 dates. Totaly freaked me out. Took me
over a month to clue her in that I wasn't interested. She couldn't understand the words
I'm not interested, I don't want to see you again, Please stop calling and emailing me,
Ok PLEASE GO AWAY. So with that said "good luck".

well from those sites i can tell your friend is into bd/sm .I helped one of my friends put an ad on them she said she got lots of freaky men and women emailing her

Well, I'll admit to using match.com before, and yahoo personals, recently. I liked the idea of knowing that a gal was actually looking for a relationship and what she was looking for.
I've had 0 luck withrthe gals I wrote.
I won't make a bunch of excuses and blame everyone but myself, but then I can't figure women out, I seem to have what they wrote they were looking for. Except when it comes to career or income. There might be the answer right there. What a surprise.
I also write that just friends to start with is best, maybe that's it who knows. Don't care for the games though.
I also don't really care about no responses. I don't really care 1 way or another if I have a gal, lifes certainly easier without. But, I browse them all the time, for years, and 2 times I've seen a number of gals within a reasonable distance that I was interested in at least writing, so I signed up then to write them.
I also don't list my profile so it can be looked up, only a gal I write can see it.
Even so, all that said, no luck. Maybe you will have, who knows.
I'd agree yahoo can be a way for adult sites or services to advertise, but there are some real 1s there. But it seems "most" of the gals on match.com and eharmony are real and really looking.
Good luck.

"I am almost embarrassed I am considering it" Why would you be??? Lets face it. 96% of the women are complety and totaly wacked out of MF mind. So 96% you should not date. Now we are left with
4%. Now knowing there's only 4% left 3% of those are now married. Call it the guy was lucky, smart and knew what he had etc. So now its 1%.

Finding that 1% is next to impossible and trust me I have tried. "mental note move out of ATL". Anyway moving on, that 1% is out there and they are I'm sure in some % case that we are in.
When you do find one inside that 1% you will know and so will she. I could say you might find her online
who knows and who really cares. It doesn't and shouldn't matter where you met her, that would remain that you did period.

Happy hunting.

Online personals only seem to kinda work for women. the male to female ratio on them is too out of wack. guys aren't likely to get many profile hits and women are sure to get many sleezebags harrassing them.

'depends on what you're looking for (?)

A few years ago I started on Adult friend finder and met some nice Ladies but THAT site is more-or-less a "Lets hook-up-and screw" site. TOO many "Pro's there.

My best luck has been off of LavaLife. They REALLY DO just wanna "Hook-up-and -screw" but you don't have to wade through the hookers to get to them.

Match.com and the other "Relationship" type sites are fine but I've been playing on those site's long enough to know that ALOT of the Ladies on Match' ( And Love access ect) who're asking for "A sensitive guy to develope a friendship with first...." ALSO have profiles on Lava' in the "Intimate encounter" area that want someone who's into one-night-stands and toys (I love toys lol).

Right now I live with one Lady from Match' and date another from Lava' (A "Lesbian" who likes guys once in awhile ) and one from Love access (Who calls me up when she needs a "Weenie visit" lol).

The Lady I live with from Match' also dates off the site so I'm not a COMPLETE prick

Here is how I met my fiance, we have been togther for 3 years now.

Download yahoo messenger. Set up a nice profile with a picture. Now at the top of your profile you bsee the link for the yahoo member directory.

Click it, then choose advanced search. You can choose your search catagory by age, marital status, location, etc. Search only people who are online, and when you see someone interesting just send them an instant message and see if they want to chat. You have to play with the search settings and vary the location some to get more results.

I met several women like that, including my fiance. Its nice to chat with em a while before you deciede if you wanna go out.

Plus its free.

I would imagine that you do need to exercise a bit of caution when evaluating somebody by info that they provide. It may not always be honest.

For instance, there is the profile of Rrotz on Yahoo where he indicates that he is female.

I don't know why he has done that, but I don't understand a lot of what he does.

Anyway, I would think that you need to play is safe.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 7:09:57 PM EST
I havent put anything on them because it cost money. I remember back when yahoo personals used to be free, real selection of fucked up people then.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 7:17:59 PM EST
You'll be sure to find interested men.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 8:22:45 PM EST

Yep I'm considering the online thing. Starting to get desperate. I think I like the I dea that you can easily filter out the majority of the crap. I don't know which site is best. I've viewed a few of them. The only problem is most of the women are super fat, have two kids from two different fathers or both.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 8:24:50 PM EST
Don't come crying to me when some dude posing as a woman rapes you.

Just kidding. I prefer to find my women somewhere other than my computer.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 8:55:49 PM EST
Why is it so hard to meet a HOT classy chick in real life or one of those "she's out of my league chick"? simple, because you are too afraid to even approach them.

I prefer to meet women OFFline as well. Folks, if you come across a beautiful chick just introduce yourself and ask for her phone number, Be confident, etc. It works all the time.

I did it for a couple of years . Its the easiest way to meet a bunch of woman that are looking for the same thing you are .......... Only problem is that out of the dozen or so that I dated more then once .

1 was married , 8 were psychos or had Alcohol/Drug problems ( 1 was such a stalker I seriously considered getting a restraining order because she tracked down my kids to plead her case ) and 4 wanted a ring on their finger after 3-4 dates !!

So I gave it up and went back to the old fashioned way of doing it . Unfortunately its a much slower and more difficult process since they don’t wear a sign that says " Looking "
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 9:20:07 PM EST
I look at the Yahoo Personals out of curiosity. I noticed the person w/ the pic dosen't match the age he/she claims to be. You gotta watch out for that. For example, one individual says he's 42 years old and in the picture, he looks more like he's 15-20 years older. I know what a 42 year-old man looks like b/c I'm married to one.
Link Posted: 8/17/2004 9:20:35 PM EST
Well Im consideing it as an option, I nornally have bad luck. Also I dont get out much to places to meet people alot of the time. Id be pissed if I spent $20 and ended up wasting it.

Link Posted: 8/17/2004 9:38:16 PM EST
OK

I have recently tried Yahoo personals and have had some mixed results. Met some very nice women, met a couple of nuts, some real flakes. I found it best to communicate via e-mail for a bit, then the phone calls. Then if everything is good, meet for coffee or lunch.

YMMV but in the last six months I have dated more women than before my marriage and had sex with more women than at any other time in my life.

Of course, I am quite a catch. LOL! Good luck!
