They also raise their pay by 20% (or more, if they're older).And uh, "80% of self-identified bisexuals are only interested in one gender."In other words, everybody's pretty much less attractive than we say we are.I've stopped since I'm in a committed relationship again, but dating sites are a fantastic way to fill holes (heh) when your dating cycle gets stale. It's not even an issue of confidence - It's an issue of convenience.

His photo was years out of date and he had lied about his height. He was a midget with a comb-over and the conversational skills of a libidinous teenager.

Which is why when I read that in 20 years’ time half of us will be meeting our partners on the internet I was horrified.

(Except bisexuals, who are apparently just teases).

So you'd think it would be easy to just knock about 25% off anyone's stated attractiveness in an online profile, and move on from there.

Never seen the appeal in them, Honestly if I wanna meet a girl I just go to a club or a bar with my friends, Luckily I'm confident enough in myself to approach women with a smile and some humor, Usually breaks the ice quite well...

I see alot of old men in there 40's on these sites, It's pretty sad if you ask me, I mean how to get to your 40's with nobody?As I looked at the photos of my prospective mates, I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful men looking for love.There they were posing on the beach, standing by flashy cars or quaffing wine in top restaurants.I've been using a couple of dating websites for quite a while now (maybe around a year - not regularly, but everytime I had holidays I'd waste my evenings there for a week or so...) So, being not ugly, rude or apparently-sex-obsessed, I've come to the following conclusion: If I write to 100 girls looking from okay (3/5) to excellent (5/5): --30% will look at my profile --20% will read my message --5-7% will answer to my message --3-4% will answer to my answer to their answer --1-2% will not stop responding after 10 messages --1% might actually have an interesting conversation with me --0% will want to meet Is it me being such a loser, or are dating web-sites not worth it?I never write something like "hey, you're hot" and never tell them "wow, you're a stunner! and what are girls expecting from these dating websites?I have spent more than a year looking for love online.
