If you truly could grasp the true realities of online dating I do not think you would be able to continue to plug away at Okcupid.......... And she was in a new relationship with a new guy 5 days later. Just now, on my 'real' account, I messaged a girl and we have been getting on well. She said is volunteering but she'll let me know when she's free. I did meet a girl on a site (POF) earlier in the year and we ended up in a relationship. Will see how things go on the night, not gonna plan things cos that tends to go tits up but just going to go with the flow.
ANM775 I was just about to tag you in this but I see I'm late to the party Interesting reading these but tbh **** online dating (things like tinder, POF, OKCupid etc) Just meet girls irl and you can see through their b.s. Well I haven't seen her in 6 weeks (family issues and sister's wedding) so it feels like another first date tbh, she's remained interested which is nice. I did meet a girl on a site (POF) earlier in the year and we ended up in a relationship. I just want a nice black African girl **** these basic white girls, they really don't do it for me tbh ..I see one I like we usually don't click because of culture differences or they just aren't girls I would consider dating seriously.

They have even been known to telephone their victims as a first introduction.
Online dating can be a great place to meet new people from all around the world, but it's also a good place to meet people who are pretending to be other people.
If the profile only has one or a couple photos -- or if the photos that are there look as if they could easily be stock photos (generic photos of people smiling at the camera) -- this can be a tipoff this profile isn't a real person.
Stealing photos from people's social media isn't difficult, so an abundance of photos doesn't guarantee a real profile either; however, a lack of photos or one or two generic photos can point toward a fake profile.
A trick popularized on MTV's Catfish show is to click and drag the photo into a Google image search.
This will reveal any other websites featuring the same image.
If it appears on other websites, pay attention to the details.
