Dating websites claim attraction can...

Follow 1 I don't have any luck at all on dating sites and wondering why? I'm also wondering do any other guys and women have the same lack of luck I have on them? What's best way to talk to people on those types of sites? BTW I am never rude to anyone or send stupid crude messages like some idiots do.

Follow 2 Pretty soul destroying, particularly for men. Converts dating in to something even more competitive and less rewarding than a job interview. Any contacts are likely to be riddled with frustration. I would stick to the work, pub, friends of friends or hobbies as potential sources of partners Follow 3 Original post by Curtis Donovan I don't have any luck at all on dating sites and wondering why?

Follow 4 Whether they're a "waste of time" is rather down to you to decide, depending on what else you Are hookup websites a waste of time be doing instead. But they're definitely pretty unrewarding and frustrating due to a number of quite obvious reasons. I have absolutely no doubt that on a minute-for-minute basis, going out to intentionally meet girls in real life is far more productive and successful.

But, if you spend a lot of time at the computer anywhere then tbh they can be quite entertaining and, from time to time, can lead to decent meetings.

Follow 5 My older sister is dating someone she met on a dating site and he's lovely, she'd never have met someone like him in a club or wherever.

Are hookup websites a waste of time think dating sites are really good because they give you a chance to think rationally, to see a persons interests, to see if they are suitable. Only thing, I think paid dating sites are a lot better, the free ones attract people who just want to have fun or just put themselves up there for a laugh or something to do. As for having luck with them, I think if you are having bad luck, there's either something wrong with your description and you're being to fussy with too high standards.

My sister met up with people who she wouldn't have ever have said were her type, and it turned out to be the best decision.

Follow 6 A lot of men think online dating is easy for women as they get more messages, which is true in most cases, however having Are hookup websites a waste of time carefully explain to thick chavs that you're not a prostitue despite the fact you've stated you're looking for a relationship and don't even have cleavage pics gets soul destroying after a while.

I wonder what was so offensive about my post? Was it the fact I had bad luck with online dating or that I said I don't get out much? Follow 7 I am not shallow though. I am not bothered what women look like, as long as they are not fat or old. I think it maybe to do with my profiles. But I don't know what to write in them or what to write to people.

I am not the most amazing looking guy. I am quite short, and balding.

Remember fellas online dating is...

So maybe that's part of the reason. But if it is then it's a bit silly. Many young guys are balding and many are short.

Ok, online dating is stupid because average or below average women get a fair share of messages and they can and DO choose to be picky.
