  • Voted D, because I'm a dude. Dudes don't tend to get messaged first.

    90% of the time when I was on dating sites, I had to do the messaging.

  • Have in the past. Didn't vote cuz none fit. I'd say it's around 50/50 incoming/outgoing. A good balance. I don't really have a preference whether I initiate or they do.

  • Of course I will message the girl I liked here, but you shuold know I have a girlfriend already and I was dating her on GAG, now I still dating her out of GAG !

    • Oh I was thinking more about specific dating sites like okcupid and stuff hahaha

    • You know the best dating site is meet me, have you heard of it? Before I did have a okcupid account, but not use it anymore, I just find that website don't have many attractive people.

    • Hmm nope I haven't heard of it, I'll check it out. I actually see many attractive people on okc but people on there are too serious, they don't usually seem interested in actually talking to anyone.

  • no to the messaging...

    explains why I stay single?
