So I've been trying online dating for about 2 years, extreamely unsuccessful. However I have noticed something. On OKCupidyou answer questions to match you with other user, one of those questions is "How willing are you to meet up with someone from OKCupid in person?" And I am surprised how many women reply with "I am not willing to meet in person". I don't get it, why be on a dating site if your not interested in dating? It kinda relates to girls only having a follow me on Instagram or Twitter as there entire profile. Is it just an ego thing or what?

BECAUSE IT IS THE BIGGEST EGO BOOST OF ALL TIME TO THEM
as you're a male, you don't know what its like as a woman on a dating site. I will tell you. Instantaneously you get at least 30 guys talking to you/complimenting you and showing interest in you. It's actually surprising but seriously, in a very very short period of time girls get TONS of attention. It's not that they go on there to find a date but because they want their ego's stroked, to increase self-validation and remind themselves that they are wanted.
And I'm not going to lie, it DOES feel good and it IS a confidence boost, I have gone on dating sites every so often and had tons of attention and never once took it any further. I am guilty of doing it. Sure some will genuinely want to but for most women it's just a huge ego stroke.0
