    I don't know about the photos. I've seen some homely looking guys riding some hot women. I am finding that the opening to your profile is one major factor, but the other is your initial approach. That first impression is everything and, I have to tell you, I am a little lost. When I was in my 20's I could open like a master, but now it's a different ball game. I really don't know how to go about doing that.

    Don't generally have too much luck there. Tried it earlier this year and found about 4 HB10's in my area but they never responded. They are always saying the same thing. Be buff, be rich, keep your shirt on, take pics with your shirt off (they constantly change their minds online), be successful, and wine and dine them. Never liked this too much because online they like fitting too much into stereotypical females there (Be rich, be buff, and be Prince Charming). But in the real world saw an online gold digging POF chick acting differently (flirting with lots of guys regardless of status) than when she was online and gold digging (but never approached her in the bar due to being pre-occupied the whole night trying to close a hardballer HB10 who I followed out but I should have engaged the whole group as this gold digger was the HB10's friend, cripes!).

    I have experienced and experimented with photo game. I stand by what I said; get good photos, and get responses.

    I agree about having good photos. I've noticed more and more interest from women as the quality of my photos has improved. I think I have a solid profile, but I do believe it's the photos that are catching women's attention more.

    IMO photos can make you and all the rest can only break you. Online dating success comes from great photos, a simple straightforward profile, and light-hearted messaging that includes a lot of fun teasing.

    Took me a long time to get all this down, but I don't even send messages out anymore. I get one or two messages per day and I respond to a couple of those every now and again.

    As far as online dating is concerned i can say its totally depends upon person to person or liking and disliking. If someone really like someone and wanted to tie the nod it doesn't matter where they met. Go ahead...Good Luck...Dean

    Here's my advice:

    (TL;DR: Add online dating to your repertoire, you have nothing to lose. Who cares if they're lying, just move on. OKC, PoF, and Tinder. Start with those and when you run out move to Match if you still need options)

    The only people who are gonna see you that you actually know are using the site themselves. Which means no embarrassment factor for you. Which in turn means that it can only bring benefits to you, even if you only check it once a month.

    That being said, I don't think wholly relying on internet dating is 1) Healthy, and 2) Wise. Mixed in as another way to meet women though it's a fantastic tool. The women I see on these sites are women I can't find anywhere else (I've seen maybe one or two IRL before seeing them online), so it expands my pool of choices.

    Another factor is my town is full of Mormons (who are great people, but, well, they're Mormons), and therefore I can "weed out" who I don't want to meet and have a much higher probability of finding the people I'm interested in through online dating. While it might not be the same for you, it's similar. If you are a relatively short guy, for instance, you can weed out all the tall girls and find a large number of shorter girls to shoot out messages to.

    However, taking into account building attraction and whatnot, you should focus on (or stick to) whatever medium you are most comfortable in. For me I write a lot better than I talk until I am comfortable with someone, therefore I have a much easier time building attraction through online banter moving into texting to finally a meet up. For others it's different, and they have a hard time messaging effectively. Play to your strengths, but at the same time don't limit yourself to "one type of game."

    In direct response to your questions I have one response:

    Who cares? So she's ugly as fark, okay. Laugh about it (treat her respectfully please), and move on. Also, people expect a bit of lies here and there, men AND women lie about their height, for instance. Both say they are 2" taller on average, which when I read that discovered that I did as well. I say I have an athletic body type because thin but not skinny = athletic to me, for instance.

    Recommendations: PoF and OKC. Tinder is also fantastic and moves much, much faster in my experience. The usual Tinder convo is YOU: Pickup line (can be super cheesy even, as long as it's original it'll usually get a response). HER: Giggle. Two or three exchanges, # close, meetup a few days later. Paid sites don't have higher quality women, they just don't have as many low quality. For me, putting in the work of weeding out the "bad ones" is more worth it than paying. OKC even lets you filter people out for free. However I'm sure if you're really wanting to meet a lot of women, Match is the way to go. Honestly though, Tinder, OKC, and PoF should give you a fantastic base to work from. If you run out of options then go to Match.

    Holy shite, this is effing long. Adding a TL;DR to the top.

    AAAAAND just noticed this thread got necro'd. Oh well, it's good for newbies anyway.
