I know they're not the best way to meet women, but they're the most viable for me since I don't have any social connections and loathe group activities.
I've contacted probably dozens of women on personals websites, craigslist, and OKcupid, and the vast majority of them never respond. What's the deal? I'm not ugly, I'm not creepy, I'm not just trying to hit them up for sex. I've tried sending long messages involving what I think we have in common and asking questions about the girl's likes and interests, I've tried sending brief "You seem interesting, I'd like to get to know you better" messages, but with only one or two exceptions, I never get a response.
Usually, girls on the internet dating sites- if they're anything presentable, they're just waiting to be hit up for sex. The comparable-to-gruel ones that will never get married are the ones on there that want relationships, and if you have standards whatsoever, I don't see you sending messages to those ones.
>>2 not true. one of my friends met his gf on a dating site. shes really cool and nice and its fuckken hot as. they get along well together and have had a steady relationship for 2 years now. but thats just one success story.. pretty sure alot of fails are on there too tho lol
I have issues finding a single girl on a dating site who is there for casual sex. It's like they're all over 30s with kids, starving for sex and their second/third child.
It's not as though I'm not doing anything with my life, I've nearly got my degree and have career aspirations. I just don't enjoy social outings because most people in my demographic are irritating douchebags. Did anyone see the "Douchebags with Guitars" bit on Family Guy last week? That's every guy at my college.
Figure the one in a million shot of actually finding someone worth keeping at an online dating website is not worth anyones time. You're better off getting some social skills, going out with friends and networking out that way. If you've no friends to do that with, you might as well kill yourself since your lack of social skills already did that to you. Just like a tree falling in the woods with no one to hear it.
I've actually had very good luck with dating sites, personally. It's pretty simple to find interesting girls. You generally have to look for girls who state that they're just looking for friends, as I know a lot of girls who use dating sites to find local, like-minded people. Becoming friends with a girl like that is a wonderful way to begin a relationship.
>It's pretty simple to find interesting girls.
> Try not to mention your ideal girlfriend or the type of relationship you're looking for on your profile.
A lot of sites have a minimum size for this part and it shits me when people pad it out with extra punctuation just to meet the requirements.
You're not really giving someone a reason to want to reply when you say "I'd love to get to know more about you". You know why you contacted them, tell them why they should contact you.
