The Reality of Online Dating

Posted by:

Hi, everyone.

So… I’ve begun my search for my perfect match.

Although there are lots of women to try and engage with I find it difficult to find the type of woman I’m looking for. Now, this may be to the fact that I’m just not absolutely clear on want I’m looking for. To tell you the truth I’m intimidated by most of the women. I like strong intelligent women, but I find myself feeling as if I’m not good enough for ...

My First Week of Online Dating

Posted by:

Hello everyone,
So… I signed up to OKcupid. The process is easy and relatively straight forward. You pick your gender and your sexual preference, username, and password. After this, you are able to set up your profile. They lay it out so that it makes it pretty easy to express who you are and what you are looking for. They have tag lines like “what are six things you could never live without” “My favorite book so on and ...

Is Online Dating Harder for Women?

Posted by:

This last week there was a lot of attention given to a man who posed as a woman on a free online dating site because he thought it would be easy…and he gave up two hours later. You can check out his thoughts on the experience over at reddit.

The man who tried this walked away with the thought that online dating is harder for women. Some of the commentary I’m reading is taking the direction ...

Good Changes Coming to Plenty of Fish

Posted by:

If you’re a regular reader, you know that I’m a big fan of the free dating service OKCupid. Part of my trumpeting OKCupid was because I liked the features, but if I’m honest another reason I gave OKCupid a lot of free advertising is because I wasn’t a fan of the free dating site most people were using: Plenty of Fish (POF).

Why I Disliked POF

My distaste for POF is pretty easy to sum up: I felt it ...

Why Haven’t Free Dating Services Beaten the Pay Services?

Posted by:

Recently I found myself reading some commentary in a forum where the person was stating that they believed no one should ever pay for online dating with all the free services available. As frequent readers of this site know, I am a big fan of taking advantage of free dating sites with my personal favorite being OKCupid. Still, my experience and the experience shared by singles I talk to suggest that this person’s argument has one big flaw.

So ...

How to Fix the Free Dating Service Model

Posted by:

Yesterday I discussed why the free online dating services have such problems: men who send massive amounts of spam searching for a woman willing to have sex. The services could cancel these men’s accounts but that really accomplishes nothing – they’ll just open another. It would appear that these free services will simply have to accept being plagued with the spammers…right?

I think not. I believe that these free services could implement a system that would remove all of these ...

The Cost of Free Dating Services

Posted by:

With completely free online dating services out there, you might wonder how it is that sites that require you to pay have stayed in business. It’s not because there is some hidden price with the free services (they really are totally free). It’s not because the free sites don’t offer similar services (they do, if not always as polished as the pay sites). I believe that pay services continue to thrive along-side free services because of how poorly members of ...
