Are internet dating sites a waste of time
Groucho Marx once famously quipped “I don’t care to belong to a club that would have me as a member.” I sort of feel the same way about online dating sites. Do I call myself Optimus Gandalf and admit from the get-go that I’m an alpha nerd? I love long walks, going to see live indie bands, and wha-a-a-atever.There has got to be a better way to meet people, people. Unless you know what I was just thinking, in which case, e-mail me. Do I overshare a little too much and pick Edgar Allan Eeyore? Or more importantly, who am I when it comes to who I want someone else to think I am, so they will contact me, go out with me, and eventually touch my genitals. I made sure to pepper everything with winking non-sequiturs and casual attempts at pop profundity.Why are well educated, busy professionals signing up for free online dating sites? Identity theft, personal safety, and cat fishing are just a few of the serious considerations when setting up an online profile.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I do fairly well for a guy I may get 1 or 2 messaged a day but I have male friends who have never received a single message.
Since I’ve never really had many friends I have never had a friendship at the level of having someone who loved me.
Because of my problems fitting in and understanding social cues I often end up losing the friends that I do make.
So I have spoken to a few girls that have told me that their inbox is flooded with messages on POF. So if there are in fact twice as many men on here than women it seems women can have their pick.
So since the odds are not good for your average Joe should average men even bother with online dating?
