I've met someone!!!!!! Good luck fishing
THINGS I'VE LEARNED FROM POF (from my own experiences and others I've spoken with)
Many woman on here don't know what they're really looking for. This seems to be most true of the women who state what they want in their profile. The more they emphasize this, the more true it seems to be
Low self-esteem or countless insecurities are a prerequisite for women on this site
Most men on this site are trolling for sex
The "best ones" all seem to have kids
Out of the few men left on here that aren't just looking for sex most of them don't know how to approach a woman for the first time
Most women on here don't know how to approach a man either
If it's obvious that they didn't put much time or effort into their profile, it will probably be obvious that they don't put time or effort in their messages either
If you don't have a good pic. forget about it. It doesn't matter how BA your profile is or how well you're able to showcase your personality there's just a lot of shallow people on here. (this goes for both men and women)
On that same note, pics taken in the bathroom mirror with a flash suck and the extreme overhead angle doesn't make you look thinner
***AS A SIDE TO THAT, I AM A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER AND WOULD BE WILLING TO HELP ANYONE OUT THAT WOULD LIKE BETTER PICS. NO, THIS IS NOT A CHEAP PICK-UP TACTIC. I JUST SEE THE BEAUTY IN MOST EVERYONE AND THINK EVERYBODY HAS THE POTENTIAL TO TAKE FLATTERING PICS AND THOUGHT I'D HOOK UP MY POF PEEPS. HIT ME UP IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS. (this offer is for women and men)***
There's something very disturbing about people who put pictures of their kids on dating sites! (what is the purpose??? think about it, and in the future try to have some tact) - *if you don't understand what I'm saying with this, then there really is no hope for our society
Conversation is a lost art for many (vague one line statements do not a conversation make)
Apparently grammar nazis really like this site. (yes, I know the difference between there / their / they're, and your / you're, and even to / too, but I could care less if you do)
Spelling nazis abound on here too (see told ya) Of course Benjamin Franklin prvoed taht the mnid doesn't raed ecah inidvdaul lteter and can dcepiher wrods bsead off of cnoetxt and frist / lsat lteter pisotoin, but I just say, thank God for spell check!
This site keeps me laughing!
FYI - I probably can't message you even if I wanted to. I've conversed with pretty much every type of woman on this site and apparently along the way that included someone looking for "Intimate Encounter", so now I can't message most of the women on here. My thoughts on this, relax, don't be so stringent, oh, and remove that message block. I guess I could just open a new account, but I don't think that's the right answer. *for more clarity on this please refer to my "grammar nazi" note at the bottom of my profile. Otherwise, if you want to talk, you'll have to make the first move
I am not like any other guy you've dated, EVER!
It's hilarious how many people on here try and act coy about dating. This IS a dating site. If you're not looking for something to come from this site then why are you on it? I mean, I get not having any expectations of whom you meet, but when you try to make your profile sound like you're not even trying to meet anyone, it's just weak and kind of insulting in a way.
The art of conversation is a two way street. If you lack the basic social skills needed to carry on an intelligible and entertaining conversation (this means actually listening to what's being said, asking questions relevant to and which strengthen the communication, and responding with complete thoughts that add to the experience) then don't even bother.
I'm just looking to meet new people and have fun.
I'm looking for someone who just wants to be friends. Someone that's cool with hanging out and going on casual dates, but as friends. If it just so happens that we really enjoy our time together, and after a while we're spending most of our free time together, and want to continue spending our time together, then that's cool, but starting off, no expectations.
In a perfect world I would have a career where my future wife and I could enjoy working together, and we could ultimately bring our kids up within the industry.
Yes, that's right, I'm a single man that's willing to admit that eventually I would like a wife and family.
I'm not a serial dater, but I'm looking for my best friend and won't settle for less.
To me love should always come before sex. Not that I don't like sex, but if we're having sex before the love is there, than that's all it will ever be for me.
Everyone is fun loving and who doesn't like to curl up on the couch and watch a movie with the right person? If something close to this is in your profile, you need a new pick up line? ;) LOL
It can only be considered arrogance or conceitedness if it's not true, otherwise it's just confidence
I'm neither arrogant nor conceited ;)
Beautiful women with nice breasts are a dime a dozen. If that's all your profile pics. say about you, you better have some rock solid content to get my attention. (this is to me, what the "guy with his shirt off in front of his car" pic, is to you)
I find it absolutely hilarious when woman w/ pics in lingerie, skimpy clothing, ass shots, legs, cleavage, or some type of seductive pose complain that all they get are messages from men wanting sex. Me thinks you're either too stupid to remain in the gene pool or you're lying and you actually crave the attention. So are you just stupid or a liar? Come on, which is it? ;)
If you can keep me laughing then you can keep my attention
The eyes are the window to the soul
A healthy relationship with family tells a lot about a person
Sarcasm makes the stupid stuff bearable
Women that mountain bike move to the front of the line
Exercise. Gym. Workout. Sweat. - If any of these words are foreign to you or invoke thoughts of pain and misery then keep fishing. (not that I'm a gym rat or health nut, but I do try to exercise a few times a week)
My personal walk with JC is more like an inebriated stumble
I'd rather be barefoot
The love of money is NOT the root of all evil. POLITICIANS ARE!
People who affiliate themselves with political parties show their colossal lack of intelligence immediately upon doing so.
People with facial piercings look like they've been involved in a severe fishing or industrial accident. (I used to have piercings, so I'm not knocking the whole trend, but hunks of metal hanging from your lip, nose,
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I get a lot of comments about my "spelling/grammar nazi" line at the beginning of my profile. Here's my official response:
"If a woman has a strong, healthy and moral character, that's what I care about. If she has a kind and forgiving heart, that's what I care about. If she can be the first thing I think about in the morning and the last thing I think about at night, that's what I care about. If she's the type of woman that every single day makes me want to do everything possible to make our love grow stronger, that's what I care about. I don't see where spelling or grammar fits in??? That's why I find it so funny.
What, a woman's going to miss out on a chance at love because she can't see past a man's ability to master proper usage of just two words?
Hey, I guess you're having a pretty good dating life though, if your biggest concern is whether your date can correctly re-write this sentence on their own"
TALK,TALK,TALK, and then a little more talking. A first date should never be too serious, and there should never be any expectations. Whether it's going for a cup of coffee or a light lunch I think any activity that allows you to get to know the other person without feeling any obligations is an excellent way to start a relationship
