Have you ever tried it? Would you ever try it?

If you've used an online dating site, what were your results? Did anyone message you first, or did you have to initiate a conversation? Did you ever get a date/start dating someone that you met online? We're you ever lured in to a pedophile's den?

Just curious about the pit's opinion/experience with it.

My experience with it is that you send out a bunch of messages and get zero replies.

EDIT: To be serious though, I've met two of my ex-girlfriends off dating sites.....never been the product of a scam, but some of the stereotypes are true.....a lot of the people on there are social rejects who can't string a sentence together.....it's basically people trying to beat natural selection a lot of the time.

Never used one but I kinda wanna make a profile that looks like I'm a crazy cat lady and see how crazy I can act without repelling everyone

I have a good friend who used to use it a fair amount and he met a couple of girlfriends off there, who both turned out to be nutters.

The rest of the times he met the hot ones for drinks and then banged them..

Lucky bastard
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

I use OkCupid. Haven't had any success date-wise, but that's mostly just because there's not many quality lesbians in my area, until you hit Seattle. I message people/people message me, but nothing has materialized. Which is unfortunate, since online dating is like my only hope.

Thought about it, but i know it wouldn't work (for me) so i've never bothered.

Really? Maybe I can meet a person as socially awkward as me and we can both be quiet together! <3

I always get lots of replies and get very close to dates with successful, beautiful women. But the strangest thing always happens. When I tell them when I am a dedicated member of the off-topic section of a guitar forum they always cut off all ties straight away
#13
I'd think about it. I dunno how weird a date with someone from the internet would be, though. Especially since I've never really been on a date.
#16
I have been thinking about making an account for like a year. The things that keep holding me back are, including but not limited to,

1) Got no decent photos of myself around
2) I can't seem to find too many interesting girls from my area
3) It is a female dominated market, apparently. Guys just keep bombing any girl with messages, and then it is just up to her to pick the cream of the crop.

On the other hand I hear about a lot of success stories every now and then.

I would kinda like to try Tinder for shits and giggles but it is not on Windows Phone ffs.
#17
I've always had an aversion to online dating. It seems loser-ish to me, though I know there's really nothing wrong with it.

would be better than being alone to some. not for me though, mostly cause I get the impression of this too:

ehhhhh I got responses on almost everything, the ones who don't respond probably abandoned their profile after they found a match or stopped caring to check it anymore

POF is the only site I managed to date and bang chicks off of. OKCupid I'm not even sure half the listings were real people. Match.com seemed like all the women wanted to jump into marriage ASAP.

I'll recommend POF. Laid back site with plenty of women.

I could do that anyway. But my roommate called Tindr, and I quote, "terrifying" and I'm curious.

Eh, not for me. I'm sure some people make it work. But I need face-to-face interactions, not this "Hey, you're sexy bby" lameass message crap.

I think it does not need to be that . If I did it, I'd just politely chat up interesting girls and quickly ask to meet em, then go have a coffee with em to figure out what they really are liek. What I mean that I would try to keep most communication as real world interaction.

On POF right now. In a conversation with a girl who I can't decide if she is interested at all. Just like 1 sentence replies to everything with no punctuation, and never asking me anything back. But at the same time she keeps replying. Now this other girl just messaged me too. I'm still scared everyone is robots who want my CC number.

people who use it on their phone often don't give detailed responses, send a dick pic

I've met some pretty nice girls from Ok Cupid. If you take the time to actually read their profiles and send a relevant message, you already have a better chance of getting a reply than most guys. Also don't just send messages to everybody, chances are you will find some girls on there who have a fair amount in common with you. Then you just have to be smooth and not creepy and it's pretty easy to land a date.


Also don't take too long to ask them out. At first I thought all the girls on there would only want to go on a date after two weeks+ of talking, but it usually only takes a couple of days for them to tell you're not a total creep. And always ask them out to a public place at first, not your cabin in the woods or some creepy shit.


You also have to be careful because some girls are really good at taking pictures of themselves and then when you see them in real life they look like a different person.
