Your pictures are a whole conversation in and of itself, so all I say here is: make sure they're very recent last 3-6 months , they showcase your face as well as you doing something that you love, and that they show you off at your happiest. As a man, your takeaway is that the competition is fierce, and thus far, you have not been up to it. Guys may get about 10 emails every 3 months. I simply just was not interested in the guys, and I guess their ego couldn't handle that. I still try not to judge all guys because of what a few guys do. Everyone knows that the best way to get the guy is to play hard to get.
Hunk but damn I ain't that bad looking either. Are you only interested in appearances? Playing hard to get can provide the opportunity for both parties to observe and determine if there is potential for a serious relationship, or if the other person is just looking for a meaningless hookup and booty call. Believe me, it is not always easy and I have had to have serious self-control to pass up a date with that sexy man who I had the hots for on the other end of the phone. Every person has a range of acceptable and not one of these sites allows you to use what really matters to each and every person out there. A lot of white guys prefer to date white and sometimes East Asian girls. It means you flirt just enough to keep them hooked.

You are so right women in general pretty or ugly have better chances of meeting men than men do meeting women simply because that's how the life is. It is exhilarating when your suitor works for your attention; after all, nothing absolutely spectacular was ever easily accessible. They are trying to escape from their lives and get a green card.

They would write me and ask me out and I just got disgusted and deleted my account. I am currently hiding my profiles on both sites, as my plate is full right now. It got to the point that she had to state explicitly on her profile: The messages never stopped. Out of all those messages I might respond to 5-6 a week. Online dating presents an effective solution to a serious problem. Playing hard to get backfired with one important exception: the men were more motivated to pursue the woman who played hard to get but, and this is a big but, only if they had chosen her from the set of photographs in the first place. Be patient, write a better profile, and learn not to get so frustrated with men, and you can enjoy online dating a lot more.
I met once a model of 22 who was going out with a 65 year old, Rod Stewart 45 married Rachel Hunter 21, Chaplin 56 married an 18 year old. It was one of the few times in my life I was caught with nothing to say. Don't you care about other aspects of a person? It is a way to softly initiate that they have a basic level of interest without committing too much into getting no response. And both the chase and catch feel good! I got a lot of things going for me and have my life together. Please let me know how I can help.
They understand that it takes money to get that. Sounds like you're the one who needs to grow up.

Yes I've used okcupid, yes I think I'm attractive, and yes I'm in a relationship right now. Be available to your man, and out of bounds for all the other guys.
You know, let me figure out this person a little bit more. You will be demonstrating comfort with vulnerability, as well as impressive confidence. They had large three ring binders full of profiles. Pretty women date based on real life self-confidence and who their man-hating friends want them to date. But playing hard to get can be so much more than a technique to get other people to like you.
So why be offended by body types being listed with parts?

You then--being unappreciative of the undeserved abundance you have--reject probably 95 of those guys for superficial reasons neverminding that you yourself are 50 and way past the age where you can compete with younger women, not realizing that the only reason these men are messaging you at all is because they know you're likely to be an easier lay than the younger women.

Basically most guys I meet in the real world these days are my coworkers, which is a no-no for me. Even fetish sites devoted to the more grotesque aspects of the dating personality barely skim what it takes to really find what you are looking for. Online you get to see just how desirable you actually are if the woman has other options to choose from. Which is to say, they start to judge men for looks to the extent that men judge us every day, all the time. We all know there is often a power struggle in the game of love. They are abysmal in ways which I will not get into here.
