I hate online dating

There's nothing more self-defeating then never seeing any nice messages or post in the same way I send out to others. What I hate is that there is absolutely no way to know if I'm doing the right thing or not. I see so many smiling faces and people I would love to be able to get to know but the barrier-to-entry just makes me feel like I made another meat called in the system and that in the greater picture I truly don't matter. For once I wish the tables would turn where people would see me the way I used to hopefully see them.

  • I guess it holds out a hope. But I think the people who make pof have made their algorithm make it miserable for me. It seems like no one lives near me and the further away they are the more beautiful they look.

  • I hear you mate. So glad you posted. I am a guy 55yo. It's depressing send out 'hello' messages and get ignored. that to me is the real tough one. I have a few meetings with coffee but they end up as a mutual agreement to not continue. Seems like the girls I like, don't like me because the ones who will chat and possibly meet are unfit or look old for their age.

    I guess I come back out of some weird hope that maybe. Just maybe....

  • Well, the ones you like probably think you're unfit or ARE old. Beggars can't be choosers, but no one ever remembers that, which is why dating sucks.

  • I've done internet dating for years and it's brought me nothing but unhappiness. I'm a normal, middle of the road kind of man and most woman want nothing to do with me. Though, its my own fault because I keep going back 'to give it one more go'
