I am on two OLD sites...OKC & POF....NOTHING...I believe because they are free you get all kinds of weirdos on there....I work two jobs practically everyday so meeting new people is almost impossible...but I have been single almost a year and feel like I want to dip my toes in the dating scene...This is so aggitating...

I agree that it can be frustrating with some of the OLD sites. You do get what you pay for on the free sites. It may make sense to invest on one of the paid ones...In my area the majority of users are on Match...

Not necessarily; I met a fair number of nuts on eHarmony.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

I was on Match. I didn't think it was any different than the free sites in fact a lot of the same people were on both.

update your profile. On OKC if you answer a question and add an explanation, you get highlighted on the updates page. This can increase traffic on your profile.

Also, don't be hesitant to contact first.

I don't know where you are but I think the websites vary on content and value depending on your location.

I also have to say that the paid site I am on is a huge disappointment to me. Not a "get what you pay for" proponent in this from me.

how about some good ole SI mojo? I will send positive dating vibes your way!!

Good luck!

The free sites seem to attract their fair share of dilettantes. Never had much luck on POF, which seems to be more a hook-up place. OKC has an artistic bent, and I've met some very cool people though the site. The paid sites are a real step up in terms of people who are serious about meeting and possibly dating.

My matches don't fit me and I have Ben tweaking it as I go....I usually say yuck every time I get a hit....really its usually and older bald heavy set man (no offense)...or sexual messages and I clearly state I'm serious and not looking for hook ups! So disappointing!
