Also whats up with every one using dog pictures or must love dogs? Are you setting up dogs for a date or people?
How I would describe them are. There is no such thing as a dating site. Only a meet people site. As people don't jump from a stranger to a boy/girlfriend over night. All they do is increase the chance of you liking who you meet. You should still go and meet them
I did use some dating sites. I actually paid for Match, and that was a bust. Then I tried OK Cupid and PoF, nothing from there, either.
Not really horror stories (except for a stage 5 clinger), but most of the guys messaging me were almost all the same. Some didn't bother with a hi, just "Let's have sex" "you down for sex" type of messages. My profile stated relationship and I said no to hook-ups.
A few guys seemed ok, but they told me they were dating 3-5 other women already and if I'd be ok with that. I just told them good luck! No hard feelings towards them, I'm just not in to that. When they started repeating the same few questions they already asked me, that's when I knew it's not for me. I want care and attention, just like I'd give my date. I don't want to be just another woman/notch in the belt type of thing.
Leaving exceptions, I don't buy the whole online dating thing. First of all, it isn't exactly transparent. People give you an idea of who they want to be, not who they are. Secondly, I feel like dating websites are monopolized by women... Check the number of guys hitting on one woman. Its crazy... Scores of them literally. Lastly meeting online just doesn't feel the same as when you introduce yourself for the first time where you've absolutely no knowledge about the person. Its more interesting... To say the least. So no, online dating isn't something I'd pick up unless I have very casual preferences.
I have had Badoo for over 5 years now. I have dated a few nice guys, been in a few relationships, @HarmoniChaos. I have also Dated and have been in Many relationships Outside the computer curtain but with This, a man from Egypt even found me on FB over four years ago and we ended up getting married at the Ministry of Justice in Cairo. Online dating and mating is not for everyone but can be fun. Good luck. xx
I've been on OKCupid twice. The first time, I stopped because I got a boyfriend from it (and we only broke up because he had to move away). The second time, just a few weeks ago actually, I found a few potentially great matches, but... this just isn't the right time to try it. But I like dating websites. They give you a chance to find people you'd never have met otherwise, and it makes everyone's intentions pretty clear from the start, which spares me some stress.

I've never used any online dating site because I just prefer to make sure the person is real. I'm a very odd person that you pretty much have to see in person to understand. I'm single as of now, but taking a break.
No, I don't use those sites. They're pretty much pointless for men, due to the skewed male-female ratio on these sites (lot more men than women). Dating sites just don't work for men, unless they are insanely good looking.
I suffered from serious self esteem issues for a major part of my life, and only now I'm feeling more confident. I'd rather not risk being ignored ny women on dating sites, since I will be competing with truckloads of fine men.
I made an OKC account once, waste of time i quickly realized. Made a tinder account, went on a couple dates and deleted after a week. The online isn't for me, I like in-person!! Why fix something never broken? It's way more effective and I can easily filter girls out/discern who is/isnt my type quicker.
I tried some out but I don't really got along with them. Some of them require money to be invested in for decent features and then again I'd be too afraid of making an ass out of myself or getting rejected by someone that I might see in public transportations the other day. Also, there's always a surplus of men and I wouldn't even know how to talk to chicks in ways they haven't heared a hundred times before.
I hate using dating sites, it's really stupid in my opinion it's like a girl going to a candy shop picking what she wants, I rather real dating cause you can tell if she likes you by the tone in her voice, her body language, and what she says to you. simple. lol
