It seems no matter what app or dating site I use with little exception I’m seeing the same damn faces over and over, either people I’ve already dated, gone out with or messaged before and got a “thanks but no thanks” some of these women I saw their adds online consistently for years. POF and OKC seems to think they are possible matches because of shared interests And I would agree but sadly most of them did not.
As soon as I add my search filters BAM!!! the same 20-30 people pop up with maybe a 1 or 2 new ones every few months who moved here from somewhere else.
And its not like my search filters are all that strict I’m open to any race almost any age(15 years either direction but I list 20 just in case because I’ve seen much older women I find attractive and I would not rule out a woman in her early 20’s though I would have to think hard on it.)
I pretty much only filter out women with kids(at home), obese and lives more than 15-20 miles(don’t do long distance).

My suggestion is to move offline. These online people are becoming awkwardly familiar to you & vice versa. If the internet is the “only” place these people manage to meet other people, there could be a social phobia issue involved. The filter systems the dating sites use is no replacement for the filter system you possess. The dating sites rely on re-curring members to make money. If dating sites were highly successful, the sites would make little money and most likely would vanish. To make money, they need people to fail, renew their membership, and repeat.
Human courtship has been offline since the dawn of man (until about 20 years ago). Move offline is my suggestion.

Failure leads to renewing the membership. The people in those profiles are becoming awkwardly familiar to you and vice versa. If the internet is the “only” way some of the people in those profiles manage to meet people, do you want to deal with a social phobia issue ?

I don’t ever really go out much… so there probably are plenty of good fish out there. I just haven’t met them yet.
