    Post What's worked best for me

    I'm new to the PUA stuff but I have done online dating for a couple years now and tried different stuff. I won't claim to be an expert but I've tried different stuff and these are the conclusions I've come to.

    Pictures

    Ideally you should have at least 1 picture in each of these 4 categories:

    1) A picture that shows what you look like
    2) A picture that shows you with friends
    3) A picture that shows you doing some fun/cool activity
    4) A picture with your pet(s)

    Girls want to know not just what you look like but also that you aren't a couch potato and don't underestimate the value of the pet picture. Also you should use something like hotornot or mybestface to determine which picture is best in each category.

    What to write

    The most important rule of profile is don't be generic and don't try to please everyone. I can't emphasize this enough. Basically there's a huge number of people online and everybody has a huge number of people they can contact. If you're average looking and your profile sounds like everyone else's then the hot girl is not going to talk to you. But if your profile is the only one of it's kind and she agrees with it she might. Basically it's better to write a profile that a small percentage of the people love and most people hate than to write one everyone thinks is ok. The profile that's works best for me probably offends the majority of women who read it. Also I've found this will cut down on your flake percentage and the dates you go on will be more successful.

    Also display don't say. For example it's better to put a funny joke in your profile than to say you're funny.

    If you're profile is long have an attention grabber at the start so they know it's not going to be just another boring generic profile and it's worth reading all the way through.

    Sites

    I've used POF OKCupid and Match so here's my ranking of each in each category

    Overall
    Match > OkCupid > POF

    Quality of Woman / Least Flaky Women (The differences on this one are enormous)
    Match > OkCupid > POF

    Matching System
    OkCupid > POF = Match

    Most unsolicited emails/winks/ etc ...
    Match > POF > OKCupid

    Highest Response Rate
    OkCupid > POF > Match

    In Person Events (enormous difference here too)
    Match > POF





    If I think of more stuff I'll add it later. Hope this helps.

    Interesting....

    I haven't used OKC, only POF, and I have to say I think some of the flakyness of POF is just down to outright numbers. It seems just about every guy on POF is messaging as many girls as they can saying "hi" or asking if they want to f*ck. lol, hence your messages just get lost in the shuffle.

    Default Re: What's worked best for me

    In my experience there are 2 types of flakes on dating sites. One reason is like you say they get so many messages that sometimes they decide to drop you for someone else.

    The other type is the girl who shouldn't have ever been on a dating site to begin with. These are girls who signed up out of curiosity or to build there self esteem, have lives that are so busy they can't find time to date, have other agendas, or once were serious and met someone and never took their profile down. I will say that the one advantage of the paid dating sites is that it weeds out most but not all of these types of girls but you still get the flakes I mentioned in the first paragraph.
