Rep whoring on a dating thread.... tsk tsk.
If it works, why not?

Oh, better get back on topic - I think it boils down to having common interests. If a person spends a lot of his/her time online for "social" activities, it's not a stretch to assume they might have luck meeting a suitable partner online. Same goes for people that like to ski or golf or play cribbage. Does anyone play cribbage anymore?

Does that still exist?
No idea. I remember a year (more?) ago it was all over every conversation on reddit and the rest of teh internet, but it seems to have died a death by now.

Now I'm trying really hard not to imagine a cat sat on a roulette wheel, spinning around and getting dizzy!

Right now I just expect him to either wave a magic wand and make all the stress and worry disappear or to leave me alone. Simple, really.
That's what a guy's magic wand is for

Badoo.com I met my husband (the best man in the world) there despite the fact that I was not serious and did not look for a relationship, just wanted to chat and learn French. It's a destiny, I guess!
Just wanted to drop-in and say, that I joined the site, right after reading your post, and I would like to confirm with what Richdog said:

Quote:
Wow, you were lucky then to get something serious off of there. Badoo is literally the only dating site I have been on that I personally consider useless. Full of fake profiles, genuine whores, and people seem to have the attention span of a gnat. However, congrats all the same!

Glad it worked out for you, but there is no living thing on that site except a huge spamming machine. I got a 12th message today, all asking me to join sites, of which you don't want to know.

If I were you, I wouldn't suggest that site to anyone, and anyone desperate in particular.

I joined okCupid at the same time, while any trace of luck, is no where to be found yet, I had had, a chitchat with about 3 women now. So, yeah.. I am putting my luck with okCupid.

At-least, there aren't any spammers.

Re: Any success stories with dating sites yet?

I totally agree. If your going to be dating then people will eventually see the real you. Why let that person down when they end up seeing what you look like on a real date. It's far better to be honest and put out a more accurate photo.

No one puts an accurate photo in dating sites. It's always
photo brushed, old(while the person was young), some place exotic where a plain made an accidental landing, and the person was able to take a picture, or the picture is out of focus you can't really see the them, or taken from a different/difficult angle making the person look more cuter than they actually are in real life.

Only accurate is about accurate.

Yeah, it's rubbish. A friend persuaded/nagged me to join. I don't see the point.

Save your money. Enjoy your solitude.
