Plentyof Fish is perhaps the most popular online dating sites out there, with an estimated 6 million pageviews a month and 76 million users (a little less than the entire population of Turkey).
It’s no surprise that I received nearly twice as many messages on Plenty of Fish than Ok Cupid and Casual Kiss combined.
497 people said that they wanted to meet me on Po F’s Meet Me feature.
While my experiences here were relatively tame, that doesn’t mean it’s the case for every woman.
Continuing to be horrible did not dissuade any of them.
There are also instances of men, believing women ‘have it easy’ on dating websites, setting up fake profiles and being shocked by the messages they receive.
I haven’t used dating sites to try to find men to date ever since.
As I was serious about finding someone, I uploaded a lot of pictures of myself, had a very thorough profile, and received a lot of attention. Eventually, it got to be too much and I closed my profile.It’s creepy, and in some instances really scary – not a turn-on by any means.Neither is asking for, or offering to send, nudes (unless they were not discussed first). Insulting other women, while looking for a woman, won’t help your chances of finding someone. Don’t be this guy and send this as your first message to a woman.It goes without saying that Ok Cupid has one of the better reputations of more popular free dating websites for having a wide variety of quality users.However, Ok Cupid has many not-so-great users as well, and it’s not uncommon for women to have the misfortune of encountering them, and in the past, I have as well.In total, I received 11 messages with 218 visitors. A few were a little more forward, and two were straight-up aggressive.
