    Online Dating

    I feel like I've reached a milestone. I got my first dickpic.

    I had a weird thing happen today. I had a message from someone with no pics. I thought I'd be not-ok with this but I actually had a different reaction. They have a well filled out profile, with a lot of interesting info about them and plenty of questions answered. I feel like I at least have enough info to go on even without the pics. It's actually quite nice to think that I might get to know someone without a concern for what they look like.

    Ask for pic when you'll get to messaging via anything other than dating service.

    No pic means either they're a creep/not who they claim to be or they have no self-esteem and are afraid to show their faces. Both are terrible dating material.

    Since me & gf split up, I tried to have a go at Tinder. 5 prostitutes later, managed to get a match. We texted a bit last night, really interesting. Today need to get a profile pic because I'm p. sure I won't get anywhere without one vOv


    @Venec - yeah, probably, or they just don't want their picture plastered on the internet, where it is to stay

    I have terrible luck with these sites, including tinder, either nobody in the vicinity, no reply to a simple 'hi', or following a short chat and 3 days of silence they delete the account. It's like I'm giving them bubonic plague over the internet or something.

    I've tried okc and the entire experience was underwhelming to say the least. I didnt think I could have less sucess than irl but I learn something new every day...

    You had no picture, on TINDER, and you wondered why you only matched with prostitutes?

    I've gotten about 20 people saying "hi" in the past four days. I've filled out a detailed profile, with plenty of info to go on. It's not that hard to put some effort into trying to start a conversation, especially if I have info about my interests available. If you say just "Hi" I'm going to look at your profile and unless you look really interesting I'm not going to respond. There's literally no point in starting a conversation with someone putting in zero effort, because the conversation will be turgid.

    Other pro-tips. If someone has info listed saying they're not looking for NSA sex, going straight to sex talk is fucking moronic. Similarly, if I have it listed that I want to get to know you for a while, why are you asking me out on a date straight away?

    I had a pretty detailed profile filled out, never said just hi in my opening message and i got 1 reply out of 15. 0 dates. After that I just went fuck it and nuked my profile, literally no point in losing my time.

    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    My experience has been pretty much identical. Unless I'm willing to drastically lower my standards internet dating is a waste of time.

    She has 20 or 100 other guys pestering her. Your 'hi' is great way to filter yourself out.

    Do it. Pics often can lower girls' HB by 2 points at least.

    I suppose I can chalk up a fair bit to the fact i don't have a decent pic of myself anywhere. And I look fairly awful on camera too, with really rare exceptions over the years.

    An attractive female friend showed me her tinder matches and it was hundreds of guys. And those were only the ones she swiped right...

    Had pic, just not of my face

    I'm still reluctant to have my pic posted on the internets ever since I've started using it. Call it paranoia, but don't even have such pics on stalkbook either, and there I only mostly have RL friends in my list

    Anyway, as I said, guy on top of looks, have to also show some wits, just to make girls to notice him.

    Having never been on a date, I'm thinking online dating isn't a good place to start.

    And at least in my case the reward/effort ratio is far too low to keep trying. Then on the other hand you have people who have great success with online dating. Shit happens v0v
