    Honestly if you’re going to put this much effort into it you’d be better of
    putting that effort into a girl on the street……. this is a waste of
    time I thought the whole point of internet dating was to be more real you
    know ? like yeah im not perfect neither are you lets look past that and
    have fun. Fuck people take themselves to seriously these days damn

    The main thing women really care about is looks. Let’s keep it real..

    Yeah, having an interesting profile and smiling in your pics might help but
    they’re either attracted to you or not. So, I’d say don’t try so hard and
    never put the woman on a higher pedestal than you. Talk to her like she’s
    human and you’ll find someone who’s good for you in time.

    As a woman, I must say that although I’m admittedly not looking for a
    relationship (just signed up for the lulz), I see way too many men with
    almost nothing in their description, just “Hi” or “Message me” or “Ask to
    find out”. Not only is it super boring, but it makes it seem like he’s
    hiding something.

    The career thing is also important to me, although I find it depressing
    that most men on POF my age have better jobs than me 🙁 I don’t think any
    self-respecting man would want to date a woman in her early 20s who doesn’t
    have a “real” job.

    The problem is the flood of emails that women get everyday. They get
    10-100 favorites/meet-me’s, and they usually just get completely ignored
    since there’s so many of them. And up to 50 emails a day, they usually
    don’t get past the subject line. So, in the end, the only thing that gets
    their attention is your main pic thumbnail. If that’s not good, you’ll
    never hear anything.

  • Alfredo Larios 2 years ago

    Pft I found someone on here. The key was communication. Women dont really
    reply on there. Usually they are all dull. Guys are horn dogs so I wouldnt
    blame them

  • godis go 2 years ago

    All this is crap. Women are way more superficial than men. All they are
    interested in is your look. To be successful with online dating for a guy
    unfortunately there is really just one thing you must put emphasis
    on……YOUR PICTURES! Thats all that counts. What you do, your profile,
    etc really dont mean much. All they really care about is your look. Women
    are waaaay more superficial than men

    Men: Please- Update your wardrobe. If you are still wearing pants with
    PLEATS in the front, you are officially behind the times in a Major way.
    No hats. No braids, tank tops and shirtless pics. Keep it simple.

    … Poor grammar… not bad.

  • Buster9 2 years ago

    I think that woman aren’t comfortable with meeting men online but woman
    need to be more open about potential dates online. It makes sense,here you
    have a company that is committed to putting together someone compatible to
    a tee for you & yet some woman are still not sure about meeting the guy.
    Woman are still ‘comfortable’ meeting somebody through a friend,work,family
    or in worst case,a local entertainer at a bar or club;Drummer,DJ,Singer.
    Why.? Ladies you really don’t know those STRANGERS.!

  • adamt5 2 years ago

    i take the time to write a message by reading their info and talking about
    things in common or that are interesting. i’d say i’m an attractive guy,
    intelligent, funny, and mature and responsible. the only response i’ve
    gotten out of about 20 messages now is because i jokingly snapped at a girl
    – which she seemed to like. and i’m not going for women ‘out of my league’
    either.. it definitely seems like the girls on these sites want way too
    much and have ridiculously high standards. no

    I know a lot of users need help with their profile, messaging, being funny,
    what to write in a first message, etc. I made a few videos to answer these
    questions. I hope it helps POF users. I know I’ve used POF with success in
    the past.

  • MitchofSmeg 2 years ago

    Nice tips, my only problem is i am pansexual, so i would like the ability
    to have “either” instead of forced to pick 1 as i dont have any preferred
    gender. Other then that, thanks for tips.

  • adamt5 2 years ago

    i think people should be forced to every 5th message or something.. a karma
    system will get them to. this sending hundreds of well-thought-out messages
    with no responses is exhausting and ridiculous.

  • EstaFortaleza 2 years ago

    oh hey, i think if i focused really hard i could guess why most of the
    people commenting here are single

  • tom jones 2 years ago

    Most of the woman on site look for a super star on POF and yet they as for
    a honest hard working man and when you respond to them the do not reply

  • adamt5 2 years ago

    likewise, my friend. i think it comes down to basic sincerity.. which is
    obviously lacking. i say : karma system to weed them out. the best is when
    they read and even review your profile only to ignore you.. that takes
    nerve, imo. if i get a message, i sign off so they don’t see me looking
    them up.

  • Amazing26 2 years ago
