    I have tried a few and the ones that you need to pay are mostly a scam. One site I put in 60yrs old 250lbs and income of less that $20,000.00 ( This is in the free part ). In less that a day I was getting e-mails that some hot ( pic included ) 26 year old wants to get to know me. Click on the link and you need to pay for a membership to see who it was... Plenty of Fish is free but you need to send a lot of e-mails back and forth, the girls have the upper hand and pick and chose after awhile. Met a couple of them and there is a lot of baggage that comes with some of these. In Plenty of Fish there is also an erotic encounter section for quicky meetings Again, the women have the upper hand as always with these sites. It would be nice if the tables were turned and women did the " hunting ". Imagine, women buying guys dinner and drinks, taking tham away on holidays. Instead of GoodGirls you would have an agency called GoodGuys and then thousands of guys could be making $200.00 per/hr having sex with girls and women could review us

    Jay, Online dating has become quite mainstream in the last dozen years. I know quite a few people who have found long term relationships and I've had some short term (six weeks-four months) success myself, though I ascribe my inability to find a long term relationship through them more to the fact that there are very few women in my age bracket that I find attractive, that most younger women looking on the "mainstream" sites are primarily looking in their own age bracket and most of those near my age, sadly, have considerable baggage. If I recall from your other thread, you are some 20 years younger than I am and, as such, you're much more likely to be successful than is someone my age.

    Match.com is probably the oldest and most successful and has a membership fee. The one that I'd recommend as they have matching algorithms that are quite sophisticated is okcupid.com. These sites are both tailored for people looking for "traditional" relationships.

    Good luck.
    The mounties always get their man.

    Funny, Alyssa, that the other thread was started by the same guy and I'm the one that mentioned meetup.com.

    Meetup.com isn't a dating site, per se, but a meeting ground for people of like interests. Of course, that makes it a terrific place to meet people and also a possible place to find a mate. I've personally met someone through a meetup group, and though it lasted a few months, it wasn't to be. It's my clear observation that the majority of the people joining meetup groups are single.

    there was quite interesting stuff in this thread...i think there is one called meetup.com and POF (from STN`s opinion, it isnt a great site...IMO, its amazing..lol and some guys in the thread also)
    I am part of meetup.com , its not a dating site but a site where you find groups that have common interest . I want to start a Merb community on meetup.com :-)

    ^^ Yeah, it's that bad on the men's side. Someone recently conducted experiment on this question (using Okcupid rather than POF, but I think the results would be more or less the same) and found that the most of attractive women had almost 20 times as many messages as the most attractive men, and that average-looking men typically had no messages at all:

    So the odds are really stacked against men, especially if their looks aren't up to par. Average-looking women, on the other hand, are bound to get lots of attention.

    for me i receive at least 40 msg per day (i mean from 40 different men) but i dont think it can be that bad on the men's side
    That is part of the problem... almost 1 in 3 messages sent to women get answered... women get swarmed with too many messages. I do not believe in online dating at all. Better to go to a regular club and pick up there... I get waaaayyy more success over there. I get tired of sending emails and most of them not being answered. Believe me it is very bad on the mens side... if you are an average looking male you will probably get very few emails if none at all... and unless you are a master talker and can say all the right things to turn her on then most probably most of the emails will not even be answered by women. Women just get too many emails.
    There is no knowledge that is not power.

    This is as frustrating as it doesn't make any sense. There can't be that many more men looking for mates than women. I've had several hundreds of visits of my profile and I've had less than 20 replies, amongts them around 7-10 positive. It's so annoying, it's perfect game or nothing, bars, dating sites, whatever. and I'm not an ugly guy, but it is what it is.

    Actually, it does, for two reasons. First, very few of the women make overtures toward the men; the vast majority put themselves up there and wait for reply. If you look at the results, there are over 1000 messages from men to 50 from women. Second, 10% of the women get 90% of the messages. The attractive women are inundated with messages and, hence, only reply to a few.

    but on POF i dont know for men...but for me i receive at least 40 msg per day (i mean from 40 different men, because i stopped to count how many msg im exchanging back-forward too...ok im there since 3 days...loll) but i dont think it can be that bad on the men's side
    So, what you're saying is that you're single. It looks like we could have a new use for Merb.

    That site is total bullshit!
    No women want to talk to me.
    I goes if you don't have pictures of yourself flexing your muscles no girls will talk to you.

    Id rather get in a relationship with an escort.
    I think they are nicer people and more sincere
