Don't waste your time or money. Try www.HotOrNot.com It works. It's free to try and see the results. To email people all it costs is $5 a month and any girl even those that don't subscribe can email you. Back in September I was talking to new girls every day! Now my current girlfriend, who I met on Hot or Not won't let me talk to any other girls on the site. But why would I want to when I can get pie at home anytime I want it.

edit
I forgot to mention that I just turned 30, was 29 when I was meeting all the girls. Not one of them had a problem with my age. My current girlfriend is 22. So don't feel limited by your age and who you can go after.

It is my belief that hot and sane women have no trouble finding men so most of the women on those sites are desperate, whacked out hogs.

Basically, you would have a snowball's chance in hell of finding someone decent there.

I have had most luck with Cupid.com. Im online cause well, working nights does put a hender on my social life, but I have found someone, and she is a good one.

Same as meeting them at a bar or something.

Aren't they being sued for providing phoney dates?
Link Posted: 1/2/2006 7:18:57 PM EDT
Well, I signed up, and finally began getting hits. Quite a few, I might add.

Thing is, I haven't decided whether I want to send them any money, which of course puts a crink in the effectiveness of it all. I keep saying I'm going to pay, then I just decide to wait another day.

Go figure.

Online is fun. Can get a feel of them without having to take them on a date.

I met a chick online (we go to the same college, but never met before) back in the Spring.

We were chattin great, we seemed to have a good connection.. then I guess "that" time of the month hit, and one night we're chattin.. and she breaks down in tears crying about how she has no friends etc.

She then proceeded to say that she needs some "company", and she wanted me to come over to give her a backrub.

Now, mind you.. if we had met in person before, there would be a very, very good chance of that happening. However, I never met this chick before (I knew what she looked like..)... Not only that, when the question of condoms came up she said "I dont't want my man to use condoms, I use the the pill.... trust me."

Lets just say, I didn't go over, and I rarely talk to her anymore.

A buddy of mine just got separated/divorced about a year ago. He's now engaged to domeone he met on Eharmony, and going to get married in June.

He came by for me to meet her the other day. After talking to the two of them for about five minutes, even a moron could see that they don't really know each other AT ALL. I'm worried for him... and her.

Guess Dr Warren proved you are an even bigger weirdo than we thought!

Try Houstonconnect.com. You can ewink the premium members and if they write you it allows you to write back w/o paying. It's how I met Dr. Carrie! If you want tons of ass try match.com and do a keyword search for school teachers...they're all freaks.

I met me wife through a personal add on Yahoo.

The key is to have maximum exposure to as many opportunities as possible to find the right person. Package yourself, well groomed, nice cloths, nice clean pad. Focus on your unique qualities.

I tried a several different ads to understand what tends to work. Be totally honest and blunt about what you want even if you come off like a jerk. Be fair, but do not take any crap from women.

My most belligerent ad, received tons of responses: “If you want to go out and have fun call. Anyone into head games and bull*shit, do that on your own time. Must be into roll playing and S&M.”

Everyone sees though that “nice” crap everyone puts in their ads. Women want excitement more than they want “nice”, although they will never admit it.

My buddy did it, he gets about 20 emails a day. mostly from chicks with kids. But he's had some great dates from it, good looking fun chicks. Just spent the weekend with one in fact.

I almost tried it, but I got tired of the endless questions that you have to answer to get a profile for them. It's also $45 or $50 a month. Honestly, at this point in my life I'd rather spend the money on ammo and the time with my dog.

It just occured to how strange that one's going to sound!

I used eharmony and had three first dates, but no second dates. All the girls were fat and nasty. None of which I would have touched with a 10 foot pole. I'm not a picky person when it comes to how a girl looks, I just have a problem with her when she is 2-3 times bigger around than I am.

I've seen two people pay the $49.95 for one month then had the site tell them it found no matches. If they're not going to give you any matches they should charge less since they're not providing a service. I could understand charging you something for the test and the try, but $50?z

Took about a week for me. After that, I've goten one a day. I've got ten (my unpaid max) pending.
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 5:48:39 AM EDT
Here is a way that works but can be time consuming....


First get on yahoo messenegr and make a decent profile with a picture. Then go to members.yahoo.com and click advanced search. The enter your town or state and whatever criteria you are looking for and check online matches only. Then you can see who is online from your area and see if any want to chat.

Met my fiance that way 4 years ago.

WTF?
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 6:11:16 AM EDT
It's a waste of money. You'll get tons of matches, but they are all from non-members who can't reply. The few matches you do get from paying members will live 500+ miles away. Two weeks after you get your membership, the matches will drop to zero, until two days before your membership expires, you will miraculously get another 50 matches...

I did the free personality profile and got this in response:

"Unfortunately, we are not able to make our profiles work for you. Our matching model could not accurately predict with whom you would be best matched. This occurs for about 20% of potential users, so 1 in 5 people simply will not benefit from our service. We hope that you understand, and we regret our inability to provide service for you at this time"

Guess that means I'm too much of a weirdo for them.... or maybe I'm too normal...

Cruising bars is the only way to go. Nowhere else will you find as many single people who are looking.

You do find a lot of rejects, but at least they can't hide it very well, standing right in front of you. Saves a lot of time and hassle. Isn't that what the online matching sites are supposed to do?

Woman I know has been dating a guy from there for about 18Months now. She's overweight, kind of snooty and not too pretty...if SHE could find a mate there....well...

Just kidding.

Well, I'm not, but I really don't feel like getting flamed by anyone who is self conscious about their weight, looks, or snootiness.
