Dating an easy going guy
Plentyof Fish is perhaps the most popular online dating sites out there, with an estimated 6 million pageviews a month and 76 million users (a little less than the entire population of Turkey).
It’s no surprise that I received nearly twice as many messages on Plenty of Fish than Ok Cupid and Casual Kiss combined.
I joined February 4th, around 7 AM, and received a total of one vote, two winks, and six messages.
The messages were all nice, although one user messaged me three times.
In fact, a third of recently married couples met online. Women are afraid men will kill them.”While it is true that straight women get more attention on dating sites than men, that doesn’t always mean it’s positive attention from safe potential partners.
First you have to find someone with whom you share a mutual attraction, then you have to make sure that you want the same thing in terms of commitment. As a result, many have turned to online dating sites. As the saying goes: “Men are afraid women will laugh at them.
As an experiment I set up accounts on three of the more popular free dating websites, then spoke to some women about their experiences. When someone says online dating, one of the first sites that comes to mind is Ok Cupid.
It is estimated that there are about 30 million total users, with roughly 1 million unique users logging in every day.
Cracked’s Alli Reed set up ‘the worst online dating profile ever’ and still received heaps of messages from men who wanted only to hook up with the terrible woman she had created.
In total, I received 11 messages with 218 visitors. A few were a little more forward, and two were straight-up aggressive.
Despite Casual Kiss being kind of scammy, with only 3000 monthly visitors, I decided to give it a try all the same – and I wasn’t entirely disappointed.
It’s creepy, and in some instances really scary – not a turn-on by any means. If you see a picture of a woman you like, take the time to read her profile. When messaging a woman without bothering to learn about her through her profile, it may come across as you not caring about her as a person – no one wants that. If you’re interested in something casual, tell her or put it in your profile.
Neither is asking for, or offering to send, nudes (unless they were not discussed first). If you’d like a casual encounter, make that known as well.
Casual Kiss is full of scammers, so that is a website I suggest avoiding.
