discovered these issues with people in relationships, but the online environment is that much easier and convenient with much more variety and abundance.

 

Its funny I'm obeserving the hypocrisy of a woman in my family right now with this addiction.

She got a new BF off Tinder, and presses him out about no longer being on any online dating sites, yet she is still on all of them constantly being entertained when no ones looking....


Yea, I mean online dating is just one big "club", some are more clubby than others eg. tinder where it's literally a free for all net casting hoping to find something. I mean you included OKC but I think the culture in each dating site is a little different. I think people are a little more "genuine" on OKC than say tinder or pof, but that's just my experience. 

 

 

Now being online while dating someone is a touchy subject that has definitely been brought up by some chicks I started seriously dating. I guess out of principle if you start dating someone seriously you should shut down your account temporarily, but I just let mine ride. :lol The way I explain it to them is, you probably have more to worry about from women I meet at work. People have facebook, instagram, twitter, you can't possibly disconnect anyone completely from their internet "persona". I tell my girl to get off okc, but act like dudes aren't hitting on her on fb and snapchat? 

 

 

I mean some of the points you brought up are valid concerns but these issues have always existed on some level.....it's like what social media is doing to society, online dating is just an extension of that. It doesn't have to be all bad, you just gotta adapt and roll with the punches especially if you're a woman.

We talkin fiances and wives here bra....BIG DIFFERENCE!

And all the online persona junk sounds like some teenager crap....

 

Yet we have married adults indulging in this BS....THAT IS A PROBLEM

 

It disgusts me how many married chicks are on these sites because they and thier man aren't getting along at the moment.

I'm like you dumb ***** why are you on here entertaining random strange me for attention and validation instead of working on your marriage.

I'm telling you man this is the bi product mentality of this online stuff too...people would rather run from thier relationship problems and hop back on the dating sites where they find some sort of comfort flirting with people and entertaining cheating instead of actually trying to resolve issues in thier relationships.

 

Unacceptable trashy tacky behavior for married adults if you ask me....

 

That's what I was getting at folks......be careful who you decide to be in relationships with and wife off these datings sites...because the site you met them on may be the site they run back to the minute yall have the smallest relationship/marital issue.

 

Know who you are dealing with!

 

Some of these women will never belong to you...they belong to the sites/apps you found them on Tinder POF OKC forever....IN THEIR VERY OWN DEMENTED PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

The social media "boom" started as I transitioned into adulthood (college frosh?)  and it's continued. Everyone and their grandparents are now on Facebook. The notion that it's some teenage crap just sounds like "nostalgia". Before social media we still had married adults creeping, old dudes smashing mistresses on "work trips", women emotionally cheating with the dude at work or some pen pal. Social media simply unearthed what was already taking place in relationships.

I just want to know how y'all flourish on these sites. I barely get any messages back from chicks I hit up on pof and tinder. Maybe I'm doing it wrong with my initial message, my profile is weak or I need better profile pictures. What do y'all do for success on these sites? I have talked to a few girls and even went on 1 date but nothing came out of it. And the girls I did meet just didn't work out which was a mutual thing. But I know there's more out there that might work out I just have to keep trying. But it can get frustrating just trying to get that initial communication going

@sugafree you gotta let go of some of this bias against people on dating sites like they are some kind of leper. On the whole you are mostly right, there are a lot of socially inept, unstable people seeking out validation there (both men and women). But there are also a lot of normal, well-adjusted folks who just don't have time to meet people, or they don't frequent the usual places (bars, clubs, etc). You are acting like it's impossible meet someone of substance online when that's not at all the case.

There are a lot of dudes in this thread who struggle to meet good chicks so online is a "path of least resistance" method that doesn't take a whole lot of time and can reap some good rewards. But honestly the dudes here who are killing it online would kill it IRL too because they know what they're doing. It doesn't have to be so life or death fam, cuz that's the way your posts come across.

Remember, you get back what you put out there... online is no different.

Real talk, the don helped me out with opening these chicks up on that first message and what to focus on.

It really just comes down to being fun. These chicks need to enjoy talking to you, if they don't, you aren't fun with them, it'll never go anywhere.

There's some good reading material out there on texting chicks, conversation tips, etc. as dumb as it sounds, look out for it man. I made a couple of tweaks to be more playful and fun and it's working. Except with the chick I used to date, she just hates my guts for some reason laugh.gif but FDB

I cant pull girls on POF.
I think alot of them prefer tall guys.
Or mostly prefer caucasian.
Im 5'7. Filipino/Chinese.

My boy who's 6'0 and white constantly has like 7-8 ongoing conversations.
post #13453 of 16591
i'm 5'7" pa just act confident like you wanna get weird with a tall chick dont let them know you're fazed by it

try tinder and bumble too b dont limit yourself to pof
post #13454 of 16591
Well, bumble has proven to be useless for me. Got at least 20 matches only 3 of which messaged me. All the others have disappeared now that it's over 24 hours

I was going to tell him I've helped quite a few NTers but didn't want to throw out names.

Was talking to this girl off Bumble and she told me how she's gone out with these dudes who are good guys and what not... but are boring offline. Don't make the convo fun, talk about their careers etc...

The end goal should be to make every conversation as fun as possible.

I was gonn say the same thing but im gonna chill tho , whoever did him dirty via online dating left a scar .
post #13461 of 16591
I get the most strikes on high there. Not gonna lie I blow the majority of these girls off. I don't really have time for it. Bumble pisses me off. Matches with nice girls and half don't respond. Females don't take the lead.
post #13462 of 16591
In 2 days I've had 18 matches and 10 of them have reached out. The 24 hour window is stupid.

Called/texted twice this week with no response, feelsbadman. These girls are fickle man

Onto the next one!

P.S. Which site do you guys prefer for actual relationships rather than just smashing?

Don't have a particular preference but I did meet my gf on Tinder

As far as ratio of quality chicks to just smashes I think it goes

Hinge > Tinder > or = OKC >> POF

I'm only speaking of the ones I've personally used. Haven't used a paid site like Match. Got locked down before the Bumble wave.

Quote from an articled (female writer)

"This is a dating app formula I can get behind. Throughout the day you receive around 13 people to choose from, but your options are not entirely comprised of random strangers. Instead, by linking the app to Facebook, your suitors have to be within your network or a friend of a friend. Which means, if absolutely necessary, you could theoretically hunt down that mutual friend to provide a character witness for an upcoming date. Within your preference settings, you can define the age range you’re interested in and their distance away (so you aren’t linking with men who live two states over) in addition to personalizing your own profile. You have the option to include education, height, ethnicity, religion, and any interests you identify with from a provided list. The feature I appreciated the most, though, was the ability to upload as many as 16 images. This allowed me to get that token picture of me golfing in the mix (because, I mean, what man doesn't love a girl who golfs on occasion?)"

Because you share mutual friends or friends of friends you're more likely to meet ppl who are serious about dating. Also you don't want to screw over someone who knows your people. If you have a decent sized FB friendlist that's quality, you'll get a lot of quality matches.

Let me think this one over, it already sounds like a horrible idea on paper. :lol Sounds female friendly though, I'll give it that much.
