Because i dont think it is. I've seen too many posts dedicated to finding a girlfriend or just trying to hook up. I think it should stop. I dont believe this is a dating site. What do you Think?

I've been on this site for over 5 years; seasoned GaG veteran here! :-P
I suppose you COULD use this site in a dating-type way if u wanted, but u gotta understand a few things:
1) This website's architecture isn't built for being a dating and hookup site. let me give you a few examples:
-only allowing two photos per profile
-allowing users as young as age 13 to sign up here
-the lack of being able to list the city in which you reside (the most u can put is your country, and maybe your province/state)
-until about a month ago, this site didn't even list ppl's actual ages; just an age range
2) The girls here, overall, are NOT here to date or hookup... and to be blunt, are quite defensive towards just about any guy making dating-type advances on them, let alone meeting anyone in real life from here.
I understand the draw and comfort to GaG. This website has a early 2000s chat-room type of feel. There's also a sense of community here as well (although it's been weakened a bit over the past two years once the site became more well-known). I also joke around how this website is like an internet town lol.
But for the purpose of dating... I don't think it works well here at all.1
