What should I expect from online dating?

  1. Been online dating for a month. On my second first date. Have emailed with a few others

    But I notice the response rate is quite low, less than 10% of those I contact repond, and most of those do don't lead anywhere

    Was wondering if this was a normal experience or if I need to adjust my approach. I'm on a prominent paid dating site

    Quite normal actually. Some just are no longer active anymore, they met someone, or gave up etc.

    Don't take it personally most people get low response rates online, because many people just get sick of dating, or are already seeing some one.

    Joe, you are a man, that means you will almost never get a response. Think of it like this, you are messaging an attractive girl. She received 3000 messages that day, so what are the chances she'll see yours? Let's see, 3000 divided by, carry the 2 ....Once in a blue moon!

    Dating sucks to begin with, I don't bother anymore, I found other things to do, but don't waste your time, everybody lies on the internet, pictures are 10 years old and girls flake on purpose as part of their game. That's what it is, a game. I don't know how old you are but dating gets more difficult the older you get. Dating online makes it worse even though you think the opposite. Women treat online datying like everything else they buy online. If you're not the right color, size or price, they click on something else.

    Mmm, let's see, Four wheel drive, leather interior, low miles...what, diesel...forget that, click...

    You wan't be selected like that? Go out, walk up to someone cute and say...Online dating sucks!, Hi, my name is Joe.

    Rule number one: Never take dating advice from a woman.
    Rule number two: Repeat rule number one.

    Dude-The men were no prize either....did I meet you?

    I met the love of my life on an on line site. Yeah-I met a lot of mediocre to loser men, but i got the good one at the end.
