    Default What are your opinions on Online Dating Accounts?

    So my buddy in the navy lives in Washington, and for a long time he didn't know any girls, so he started using plenty of fish. Now from time to time I was curious and searched to see what kind of girls were in my town, and surprisingly there were a few 8s and a 9. I go to a university so its not like I never meet girls, but I am curious to the whole online dating thing because the girls are actually looking for a relationship. So here is my predicament, while searching I did see some girls that I knew or knew of, two of whom I have hooked up with in the past that are very well connected in the gossip department. As much as I want to meet new girls that I would probably never run into, I really don't care for the gossipy girls saying "Oh that desperate guy has a plenty o fish profile, he will take anything he can get" So, opinions on it all? your experiences?

    Why not giving it a shot? It shouldn't be your main source of women but just an additional source. I met my (almost) girlfriend via a dating site. It's always good to be in touch with some women just for the experience.

    I have used sites like this and they work really well because it removes all the aa from the scenario. cold approach is challenging, and an online approach is much less stressful for some starting out. I have seen a ton of success with girls from Skout, Meetme, and others.. It's not desperation, it's exploring your options. Let the girls say what they want, act the way you want people to see you, and that's the impression they'll get. Cheers.

    i'm going to be bluntly honest here, I think online dating is a waist of time. imo most of the girls who are desperate enough to use online dating (even the hot ones) have a reason they need to hide behind a computer screen to get guys. most of the girls who use online dating are total ice queens or psychopaths.

    however, their are diamonds in the rough, i'm not saying that its impossible to find a high quality woman online, its just difficult to filter through all the chicks who use it.

    though I must say online dating is probably better if you live in a big city like L.A. or new York, where you have a lot more girls to choose from.

    my point is that most high quality girls don't need online dating to find high quality guys. imo online dating is more geared towards the shy hopeless romantic type girls.

    I don't know that I would worry about your school mates finding out. After all any girl at your school that would see you online would also be using online dating so why would they make fun of you?

    I somewhat agree with meteora that it's easy to waste a lot of time with online dating because most of the girls are low quality and flaky especially on the free dating sites. I would say if you're having success in real life then set up a profile and take the passive approach (ie only contact girls that have expressed interest in you first). For the most part this is what I'm doing. If your profile is well written and you have good pictures even if you're not exceptionally good looking you will get some activity (messages, winks, meetme's). Also I'd think twice about wasting time on girls that seem lazy. For instance if the girl didn't fill out her profile it's unlikely she's taking online dating seriously.

    Also if you take my approach make sure to have a unique profile. If you do a generic profile then you'll mostly get fat chicks contacting you. If you're profile is unique then you'll get some hot chicks messaging you cause you're not competing with every other hunk on the site.

    Photo game. That's all it amounts too.
    How do I know this?
    Well, I did a little experiment. I put my normal average looking photos onto an account, I wrote out a solid, witty and charming profile. I sent out solid messages to probably 100 women; PUA type messages such as 'You're a trouble maker, aren't you?" or if the girl was HB9-10, I'd actually pick something off her profile and make some witty opener out of it.
    Nothing.
    Fast forward; I wasn't using the site anymore, but I figured I'd have some fun before I deactivated the account. I did a google search for male model, and found a reasonably realistic shot. I deleted my own photos, and put up that single photo.
    Guess what happened?
    Messages, visitors, and comments on how cool my personality was. I'm not a sociopath so I of course didn't reply to any of them. One girl actually messaged me back- THREE MONTHS after I sent the first message. All it took was changing the photo. Women were literally writing me paragraphs, where before they didn't reply.
    The moral of the story: get a good photo.

    I like Online stuff because it is easy and risk free. If you are a rookie and looking to practice your game before you go out in the field, the internet is the place to do it. If you pick the right targets, the repercussions of screwing up are barely felt, and it gives you the opportunity to work on your confidence and practice things.

    Before I did any in-field stuff, I stuck to full-on facebook game. Reason so was because there wasn't much opportunity to pick up anyone in public on my campus, and I was new at this, so I needed all the time and planning I could get. I discovered that what I usually practiced and was able to come up with on Facebook I was easily able to compound on myself. Naturally, I improved, and my in-person conversations began to mold into something better.

    Like I said, though, it's easy and risk free. If you're looking for any long term success, you have to get off the keyboard and go out into the streets. To approach in person, carry a conversation, and do all sorts of other in-person interaction requires a lot more confidence and knowledge that you cannot learn on a site like OKCupid.

    this is where I disagree with you swagman, starting out with online dating actually gives a lot of guys an excuse to not get out and make real life approaches. its all too easey to hide behind a computer screen and give out responses. it still doesn't get real life rejection experience out of the way (witch imo is necessary for you to develop both inner and outer game)

    practicing online is like playing miniature golf to prepare for a world series golf tournament. if you want to be good on the big course, you need to practice on it. (for those who don't understand my metaphor, it simply means that if you want to be good in person you have to practice in person.)

    btw, if your game in person is good, then your texting game/non-face-to-face game will be just as good.

    Yea, I realize that. That's why I said that if you want any real success, you have to get away from the computer and get out of the house.

    Although I did more facebook game than in-person game way back when I was starting, most of my successes were in-person. I'm saying that I like online game because for those starting out, there's always the risk that you can say something that just pisses someone off. I can say I did that quite a few times starting it out, and I'm glad to say most of them were girls who don't even go to my school. My problem is that I really didn't have a sense or filter of what was right or wrong to pick up a woman. I learned very quickly what was right and wrong, and I learned more wrong than right.

    In addition, approaching online can be difficult as well. With my very first online opener, I think it took me days to finally press the enter key and start something. Online confidence is not nearly enough for public game, but the fact that I felt like I was able to come up with the right stuff on the fly, and that I knew from online gaming that if I took that first step things would become easier for me, gave me an extra drive that allowed me to approach women easier.

    Call it minigolf, but even the pros first learned how to putt before they learned how to drive. As we have said though, you can't putt your way through a tourney, so mastering everything else is essential as well.

    not to be argumentive, but I really think that every guy needs to have some embarrassing slip ups, they will teach you to be more care free and not to worry so much about how people will react, I know I've said quite a few things in the past that really pissed some girls off, but I don't regret it, I just learn to laugh about it, because ultimately rejection is meaningless and way too many guys worry about it.
