Re: “Dating Site Hell

These people who bash the OP for not giving larger women a shot must be attracted to every person who walked the planet ever! Must make the dating process easier. I guess you're all with someone, so why are you complaining?

If someone is into fitness and eating healthy that is a way of life for them. Clearly, they will be attracted to people who look like they put in the same effort.

Be honest with yourselves: you turn down other people for equally superficial reasons: They have bad teeth, are too short, have no hair. This is not an anti-fat-chick issue. Everyone has a "type."

Re: “Dating Site Hell

Milk and Juice, I know lots of smart, hot women with great personalities on dating sites. But they get hit on by married men bored with their wives.

Re: “Dating Site Hell

Dating is a game that requires effort. It's not enough to ask that people accept you as you are. You have to look polished, regardless of body type, be interesting, have hobbies and generally try not to be an annoying idiot.

Visual does matter, even for women. That is why we have body language, eye contact, etc. These things don't work in online dating, at least in the email stage, so we have to go by photos. And let's face it, not everyone takes good photos.

But here are some tips:

HAVE a photo. It's just weird emailing back and forth to a blue silhouette. Also, not wanting to send photos makes me think you have something to hide. Not looks, but maybe you're married and don't want to get caught (this has happened to me).

Wear something nice in your photos. Not a T-shirt you got out of a case of beer and which is full of stains. Keep your shirt on. I personally don't respond to men who take photos of themselves showing off their abs in a bathroom mirror. Not classy.

Shave. Get a haircut. Have someone else take the photo. Have good lighting. For Christ sakes, smile! Don't pose. You're not on the red carpet.

Don't include photos of your boat, car, house or dog. We don't date these things.

Have RECENT photos. If you post a photo from 10, 20 years ago and you look significantly different, then you can't hide that stuff. Eventually, you will be found out when you meet. And don't think, "Oh, when he meets me he will love me regardless!" Not true. He will think you're a liar.

Don't lie about weight. Or height. Or marital status.

Attraction DOES matter. And people are attracted to different things. OP likes skinny women. Don't bash him for it. There are men who love full figured women. Focus on finding them instead of bashing men who want skinny women. I prefer fit men, but there are women who love big men.

If you want hook ups, be upfront about it. Don't waste the time of people who are looking for more. There are lots of potential hook ups out there.

That's all.

Re: “Dating Site Hell

I just quit this same site today. Most of my "matches" looked like sex offenders. Or they were looking for hookups.

Re: “Not everyone needs babies...

Good for you OP for knowing what you want and sticking to it. To hell with what everyone else things. I wasn't sure I wanted kids and was pretty focused on school and a career. Then I found myself pregnant, but I am really glad she's in my life and I can't imagine not having her. Still that's a huge risk to take. And as people mentioned, it's a lot of work.

OP, tell people to buzz off. I am really shocked at the things people have the nerve to say out loud to people. I am definitely teaching my kid when to mind her own business.
