cant be bothered going back through the thread, but what is everyone using right now?...

I am pretty much only on oasis active cause I cant be bothered to pay $10 on rsvp just to be rejected, but I do think that oasis is attracting a larger bogan crowd (and I know that sounds a little snobby)

i had the same issue, the few guys i contacted myself weren't interested...i had a fair few guys contact me though and i tried to contact most of them back as i felt mean if i didn't, they have taken that first step and i know how hard that is!!

i go out all the time bizzy, and i still dont meet anyone....but thats probably because i am usually busy with all my friends who are mostly male. need to look more available!

That probably has a lot to do with it! We need to find ways of sticking signs up saying "he's a mate, not my bf and yes I am single"

I have found that a couple of my female friends that are in long term relationships are the best wingmen. Need to go out with them more. Need to move back to Sydney.

It's more about using the right language, rather than bending the truth.

"I listen to hardstyle, and MMM." WRONG

"I like a variety of music from rock through to electronic, and love going to live events." CORRECT

You sort out the details later.

I reckon that could work, take up the slack left by the rest of us who don't do the ESL crowd (though I'll make an exception if her first language is Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch or French)

Just lie. Everyone else is.

All the BS about "finding the perfect match" is just bs to make you pay.

Just like IRL, you will eventually have to have a conversation face to face to find out what they're about !

woke up this morning to a couple of contact requests that have locked photos... this feels kinda like a $5 lucky dip, the prize could be great, or terrible, but only one way to find out

i met my man lover of 5 years on lavalife and have never been happier. lets call him Mr X

i was one of the ones only wanting to be taken out on dates, have a little kiss, "maybe something more" and then never see them again. But when i met Mr X, i fell head over heels within hours.

My thoughts are, when you stop searching it will come.
if guys had periods, theyd brag about the size of their tampons

Wait.... so you were using a dating website not so much for finding a shag/partner, but more as a source of free meals?

Are you male or female?

That's total bullshit. Who makes the determination over what an "average girl" or a "9-10 guy" is?
A guy that I consider to be out of this world, the next girl wouldn't even glance at twice. Same goes for men with women.
And even if the above was true, it's true for both men & women on dating websites. You ARE like a kid in a candy store. You're on a site full of people of the opposite sex looking for a partner. Why shouldn't you believe you're deserving of the best?

That assumes that the ratios on dating sites are approximately equal. From what I've seen, they're not. For a lot of guys especially it's like being a kid in a candy store.... but only having a enough change to afford the marked down lollies that are weeks past their use-by date and will probably make you sick.

Drugged up animal username > stripper username

Believing I deserve a nice partner is a little different to believing I deserve a partner that ticks every box of a criteria I set when I logged into some dating site. It's not even about "deserving" anything.... its just being realistic.
