    I have been looking around the Internet and the only dating sites I found were Match.com and Plenty of Fish.com. I tried both sites and I will admit they were not for me. They seem to recycle the same guys over and over again.

    It's saddening to see that the only places that have in shape, attractive guys happen to be on sex sites. It makes it seem like if you are remotely attractive - all you want is sex. Am I the only one that wants something a bit more in a man? Can someone suggest a better place online?

    PS- I am not counting Real Jock as a dating site.

    Some people seem to like okcupid and connexions.org.

    In my experience, it seems to be the very same guys you find on the sex sites though, just with tamer profiles.

    Probably better just joining some community organizations and meeting guys in real life.

    Thanks Vancouverite. I did try Okcupid. It's very similar to Plenty of Fish and Match- not for me. I am on Connexions. It has a great portfolio of guys but it's pulling to teeth to get guys to meet in person. Which could be said of any website - even here on Real Jock.

    I am looking to meet someone in my area for dating. Thus going out in real life and community organizations are not ideal since that is not the goal of these situations.

    How long did you try Match.com for? I know I went a good two months without anything great coming out of it. You're definitely right in that it filters the same bunch of guys a lot(you can pay for an option to come up before others), but from what I noticed there are always new people signing up, so try doing searches yourself, and expanding your radius I did 50miles.

    I met the guy I'm currently seeing on match, we emailed/texted/called eachother on a Sunday night and on Monday we went on a date.

    It just requires a lot of filtering much like meeting people in person, but depending on how long you tried it out for, I'd say stick it out. Definitely some potential on the site, at least for me haha

    No you are not the only one but sad to say it does seem like all the attractive guys just want sex. I am not looking for a hot man, just someone I am attracted to and has his head on straight.
