    i dont think im picky, i just feel that most people in our community dont have the confidence or the self-esteem to develop true game. one word responses or cheesy innuendos are lame.


    I was on there for a bit but I didn't meet many from there.

    And you're right about the game part. I think when you're solo, you don't necessarily notice it...but when I watch how other people 'hit on' the guy I'm seeing when we go out, I just laugh at how whack theirs is.

    A person is trying to take a piss and their game is to yell out, "DAMN YOU'RE FINE, HOW BIG IS YOUR DICK CAN I SEE IT?" or, how when they see an attractive guy with another attractive guy...they think it's easier to hit on that than someone who's solo.

    POF is interesting. As Yourname2000 said, it seems to be one of the most dating-oriented venues compared to the alternatives.

    The downside is that there are a lot of guys on there that *really* want a relationship before getting their own shit in order, and that come off as very needy. Still, I guess that's not any worse that other random meetings and the population overall.

    Glad I found Yourname2000 there and was persistent enough to get that first date! icon_biggrin.gif

    Good luck!

    I applaud that you 2 love birds can chat amongst the masses on a forum. I couldn't. I'd been of said something off the charts...I gotta meet my men away from this site.

    Seriously, you and yourname8000 are the sweetest couple I've seen here (I've been here for a week now, or so, but still!).

    OP, it's all given to chances. I live in Portugal, but still .. my profile fits a dating profile, I guess. I really would like to have a relationship, but those are getting hard to find. I'm not giving up though, we'll have to wait until, eventually, we'll find one!

    Try to go beyond online though. As in, offline. I've found over the years that trying to get someone online has deteriorated over the years. It's still possible, but like has been mentioned already...many of those guys are addicts. I've found many to have BF's that they haven't completely separated from too.

    They don't want to date, they just get off on the thrill of meeting a new guy.

    Thrill of meeting a new guy? Ugh, I'm terrified to haha. Especially if I met him online .. it's meeting a stranger nonetheless.

    The problem is that living in Portugal, it's hard to meet people offline. I don't go to gay bars, and even if I did .. not sure if I'd find what I'm looking for. The problem is that I don't meet gay guys at all! So online seems to be the best alternative, at least for now ...

    I think POF is okay.

    I have found a person of interest on POF and the two of us, while not "dating" I guess, have much in common and over the past month or so decided we were not looking for another until we see where our friendship goes.

    Neither of us are "pretty" and both of us are all about rebuilding a car from frame up, we're in the same career field and have other things in common. It seems several of our common interest are not typical so, so far I'm pleased with POF.
