Re: Online dating thread

Is POF a good site? I've used almost exclusively OKC for a while, but I'm tired of it. Working more on my live game atm, but it's something I can do while pokering or whatever.

Online dating is kinda meh for me though. I'm 38 but everyone thinks I look 29/30, so online gives me away!

I don't even view the pictures or profiles, just hammer the 5 star button.
I've always wondered if women find it slightly creepy or lame when men rate them highly but don't message them.

I think OKCupid is miles better than POF, at least if you are white.

This is true of all those small niche dating sites. They hire people to reply to messages and string people on as long as possible so they keep paying subscription.

It was great when I lived in Atlanta, but it seems dead as heck down here in Tampa.

I set up a free account which had something along the lines of "I've set up this account solely to have a look around". I had 50 odd messages in my in box before I shut the account down.

Re: Online dating thread

Already very disappointed with POF. It's trying to match me with women my age and the very oldest I'm interest in is a woman 3 years younger than me.

Nah, gotta send them pictures of your dick first. If they respond, they might be interested in meeting you.

So no one thinks spamming each others inboxes to gain a replies selectively is a good idea?

Re: Online dating thread

This is very interesting as im already in talks with one women.

Wondering how many dates/sex/bjs I can get from milfs. Wondering about prop bet..


I would think autism would be off limits, unless of course it would help you finally cum

Re: Online dating thread

That was probably the strangest profile I've seen yet... I'm not sure about the ethics of linking to other peoples' profiles, but I felt like I had to get some commentary on that one.

WVU,

What age range are you going for? And you are what, like 27?

WVU,

I bet you could bang a different 6-8 looking 35-45yo every night if you wanted. Early 30s will be a lot harder. Good luck!
