Quite accurate, men have bigger egos & lower standards. It can make the online dating world overwhelming & scary for women, frankly I don't know how they do it.

It's absolutely a numbers game. My friends favorite pickup line is "Do you mind if I sit & flirt with you for awhile?" He will go around the bar & say it to every girl in the place because at least 1 in 10 will respond to it.
That being said, his rating scale is exceptionally less refined than my own.

What is "Special Blend"?

OK Cupid has a match & enemy %. Special blend only affects the order that it will show the profiles. Other options are match, enemy, distance, last online.
I also have it set to show me all races.

Lights, camera, badass.

Love it already!

However, I will love it even more if I get some sleep before tomorrow. My son turns eleven tomorrow, and there is much to do!

More, much more on this, later though...yes...WWWWWOOOOOOO!

I have met several amazing people online. Several abhorrent ones too. Not in the context of dating, but through the mere happenstance of chance, in various places, some of which looking back it is an astounding thing that these meetings even even occurred at all. I have not ever developed a romantic relationship with any of them.

But one of them, in particular, and perhaps even the most unlikely of them all, has resulted in the drastic alteration of my "self". It is no exaggeration to say that I would be a significantly different -significantly worse, in my opinion- person, had I not met this girl. At first she was somewhat of a mentor, later a consult, and in the present day she is a, a dear, dear friend. Someone whom I deeply respect and admire. If you were to know me and understand me, and how I act and conduct myself and the way in which I perceive the world, you would know that I do not say these words lightly.
You would probably be surprised I had it in me to say them at all.

In fact, I say "this girl", but that detail is largely irrelevant. I think some part of what makes online communication special is that it allows for the free exchange of thoughts and ideas, as well as to a certain extent feelings, inherently lacking the taint and distortion of gender, appearance, age, social status, economic status, everything and anything beyond the words themself and what those words are intended to convey. If they are a beautiful young woman, or a gnarled and elderly man, or a small and unsupervised child, it does not matter. While I would like to look through unbiased eyes, there are innate things that I simply do not have control over, and cannot avoid even if I am consciously aware of them. Of course, that purity also brings downsides, but I believe those downsides are minor compared to this simple benefit: It allows me to judge someone on what they say, and what they say alone.

I went off on quite a tangent, but to conclude I would like to state that the internet gives rise to marvels as well as horrors. Online dating is, I think, much the same.
Full of diamonds.
Full of coal.
Full of dust.

What is there to believe in? It works for some people, some not.

is it a matter of conscience or just perseverance?

It exists, trust me.

Your belief in this does not effect it's existence.

I think you mean that you lack faith in it's ability to work.

Personally, I know many of couples who met online, and have been together since, going on years.

I gave up on women long ago after experiencing one. Their personalities are garbage and they're almost all used trashed. Kissing a modern woman is no different then licking the bottom of a garbage dumpster clean. What compels you to even bother?

Sadly i tend to agree... sort of... thats a bit drastic brother

What keeps me searching is knowing that there are women out there that aren't like that...

Though you likely won't find them in online dating...

That's like giving up on chicken after only ever eating a mcnugget. There's a whole world of poultry based goodness out there dude.

We aren't all bad, I am sure women could say the same about men, but I think we could say that if they are like'garbage' it isn't due to their gender it is their personality as a human being.

Maybe you could seek some advice on your approach and see were you are going wrog, or why you are picking the bad ones. If you are happy on your own with just friends then, each to their own.

Do you have any female friends? Maybe you could ask them?

If I were to write an on-line dating profile, it would probably go something like this.


Introduction

(burp, phaaaaRRRRT.... scratch) "HEY! Yeah, YOU! Who'd you think I was talking to?

Age

Old enough to know better...and young enough to do it TWICE!

Likes / Dislikes

Ahhh, this one's a tough-y. I love my cows, but they don't like to hang out with me in the house as much as I'd like, I think the roaring Death Metal out of my 6,000 watt stereo system makes them nervous. My herd bull, Stymie, gets a little ornery sometimes. (Maybe I should stop dumping that 15 gallons of cheap vodka in the stock tank every night.) I do like a good steak, just whack one off one of the steers, wave it in front of the grill a couple times and plate that bad-boy right up. Done perfectly! I also like a nice glass of wine with dinner. I don't bother with that foo-fooey stuff in a bottle though, I go straight for the stuff in a box. Can't find a glass? No worries, just grab that old Mountain Dew bottle that's been rolling around in the bed of my pickup for the last month.

I also like sandwiches.

Dislikes? Don't really have any...well, except for the Kardashians, can't stand those bimbos or that 'creature' of theirs who claims to be a former Olympian.

Perfect Date

I like a girly-girl, one of the ones who's cute as the day is long and smells good. The kind that looks like Heather Locklear when she was 21. The kind that makes funny girly sounds and giggles. The kind that's skeered of everything, but drop-dead gorgeous and has that certain wiggle. Did I mention Heather Locklear?

Oh, you meant "date" as in...'go out on a date', sorry! Oh, I don't know; maybe meet up for a nice picnic lunch outside in one of the fields and then play some games maybe (Hop, Skip and Go Naked is always a fun one). Then go back to the house for some bone jarring mongoose-primate-rodeo-sex. Then I suppose we'd finish the evening off with you making me a sandwich; just kidding (...but a sandwich would be nice). Anyhoo....

Smoker?

Whatcha' got?

Drinking Preference

Well, if you'd give up that dang Mountain Dew bottle for one cotton-pickin' second, sure, I'd love one! Otherwise, I think I've got some Yukon Jack left in that bottle under the seat of my truck...hang on a sec; I'll be right back.


-----------------------

So by now you probably think I'm just being a smart-ass writing all this. Truth be known, I wrote a very similar profile for real once (more than one actually). The Kardashians weren't around then and my 'perfect date' section had something about... "eating onion rings on the beach of a remote tropical island under the stars".

For our first date I flew her 13,000 miles around the planet to SE Asia, drove her across an entire country, took a boat to a remote tropical island in the South China Sea...and yes, true to my word...we ate onion rings (which, by the way, the locals had no idea how to make when I asked for them)...on the beach under the stars on the first night.

That was in 1997...and we've been together ever since. (True Story)

P.S. My herd bull's real name is "Jack" (and I don't put vodka in his water). I can't stand Death Metal, there's no cows inside my house and I really don't have a bottle of Yukon Jack under the seat of my truck.

(End)

Internet dating is awesome, if you take it on the slow bells. But remember that it can sometimes be frustrating. Imagine that you start exchanging emails with someone and then, all of a sudden, you’ll never hear from them again. And this is very common. It's a biggest con of online dating. You have to teach yourself to get over being ignored. I've been currently dating a Thai girl and recently found some tips and recommendations www.thisdating.com... . Found them pretty useful
