    Dating Sites are stressful

    been on POF Okcupid and Meetme since 2013 and never had one date. The women always cancel the dates with me 24 hours before it happens. It’s impossible to meet people through sites

    “been on POF Okcupid and Meetme since 2013 and never had one date.”
    “It’s impossible to meet people through sites”

    According to a Match commercial 1 in 5 weddings take place between couples who met online.
    It is also known that millions of people of have used online dating sites and apps around the world.

    If you have been using online dating sites for (7 years) without having a single date you’re doing something wrong!

    It could be you chose the wrong type of site, have a bad profile photo, or the content of your profile is unappealing.
    You may be pursuing women who are “out of your league” or your initial approach is off-putting/not establishing a good rapport. Have you considered reading any “how to” materials or sought out a dating coach for assistance?

    Dating site are ok but they are hard, the women are bombarded by guys on POF so you have to be lucky to get a reply. I met my ex on POF and recently met a girl and had a couple of dates with her but it seems she got scared and has ex issues.

    Bumble is another one to try – women have to message you first so better chance of a date but again sometimes they just stop talking after you think it was going well. I met another girl recently and had two date with her.

    Try not to message too much, never text again if you’ve not had a reply, don’t reply right away to every message, get the initial im not a weirdo messages out the way then slow down the texting until you meet.

    Maybe i got lucky

    I’m a very busy person and with the ME2 and other such movements; I’m afraid to be “flirty” with women in real life. I do find date sites stressful but I do take breaks and remember that I don’t know what’s really going on on the other side of the server. Something could have happened and with all the fake profiles some of these sites use; it becomes a fun game of who is real and who isn’t but they still can’t pass my version of the Turing Quiz lol

    @familyguy95 I don’t know your life or situation but if you can’t depend on this artificial life. Seven years is a long time to be paying for something that is failing you. The World’s Two Greatest Advice Columnists Abby and Anne; would have told you to join a local group and socialize. Reality will always beat out the Matrix and the fakes that are dropping you on a 24hr notice.

    I really don’t think dating sites work for everyone. Some people have a better time finding random people at a bar, or through work. But there’s other websites that you can try, and there’s also Facebook and other social media sites that are low key helpful with those types of things too.
    I seriously wish you the best of luck, you can totally find someone awesome.

    Dating sites can be frustrating. I have been using them for a little while and it really is how you talk to people. Like with match for example, it is hard to differentiate if a person is interested, or trying to keep their free 6 months.
