I used plentyoffish because I couldnt afford any of the good ones.  LOL!  I had almost two years of bad luck.  I cant tell you how many dates Ive been on.  A few guys acted like they wanted a relationship but would just cut off contact after about a month with no explanations.  I HATE that. But FINALLY I have found a good one, and it turns out he was just 15 minutes away from me the whole time!

Yeah, the sites are plagued with guys that are only looking for sex.

I'm on one but it has a forum. That's really all I go on there for.  Don't really look around and see who's on there looking for dates or whatever. Just socializing like I do CM.

I feel the same way. I just don't seem to have time and no single friends to be out and about with. I had a friend who met a crazy man on harmony and I had to go help her after he trashed her place while she was out to dinner w her beat friend n best friends hubby. I'm too scared to go on those sites. I certainly don't want to meet a bar fly either.... my ex husband has tried the dating sites too and tells me the women are crazy and lie too...how can we make time for dating and how do you meet someone

I actually met my late dh online back in '01.  We ended up being together 10yrs before he passed away.  Thought I'd give it another shot so I tried Zoosk & the guy was wanting me to send him pics & skype after only an hour or two of messaging back and forth & I had made it clear that I wanted to take things insanely slow (its been well over 10yrs since I last dated lol).  I got a bad vibe from him & got pissy with me when I told him that I wasn't ready for that.  Deleted that profile quick lol

I've been on POF for a few days and I gotta say, I am talking to a few guys that seem nice enough.  Aren't afraid of answering all the questions I ask & understand that I want to take things slow.  Not impatient if I don't respond right away, and don't mind talking about their kids or whether the site is legit or not lol  Just taking things slow & keeping my guard up since I have 2 dd's that I have to look out for as well :)

I am currently on one and find it weird. I'm not looking to jump into anything, but many of the people there aren't subsrcibers and so you can't exchange email, IM or anything else. So, I'm like "What's the point then? Just sign on to view pics?" I've had some legitimate men view my profile, but that's about it lol. My reason for signing on was more so about newly regained hope. I'm not ready ready for more. Just kind of looking and talking while I work on myself and have everything else settle more.
