Alright so I just got out of a long relationship with my ex and my buddy told me I should give POF a try. Well I created a profile on Tuesday and didn't begin any conversations now I have 6 chicks that seem overly desperate contacting me and I just make small talk with these ladies and there asking me out on dates. So I do a little look at there profiles and 4 of the 6 women are single mothers who write in there profile about feeling hurt and alone so I am thinking these chicks are just looking for male contact or something. The other two girls, one of them is considerably older than me and it just seems kind of weird and the last one has very strong masculine features.
Now instead of dealing with the break up of one girl I have 6 women I barely even know that come with a lot of baggage trying to organize dates with me.
I am just wondering if anyone else uses POF how often do you get people asking you out on there and are these people even emotionally needy?

I haven't ever used it and don't get me wrong its not always a bad thing but I do think that there is a reason people are on a dating site and that's something to keep in mind. Something is keeping them from going out into the world and meeting people in person.
Maybe they have baggage, maybe they kids, maybe they have an extremely busy work schedule, maybe they are trolling or attention seeking, maybe they are just looking for hook ups, and maybe they are extremely shy or introverted... etc.
So I think you just have to sift through and find one who is genuine and serious just like dating in person. But don't get catfished.1
