Well, I’ve personally used Match, e Harmony, Plenty of Fish and OK Cupid.They all have some similarities as well as some major differences: e Harmony After you’ve completed that first major step of filling out all of those questions and essays, you can essentially sit back as e Harmony sends you profiles of people that it thinks are right for you.If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.
To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse.Today I’m going to list all of the aspects of the women you’re messaging on an online dating site which will affect, positively or negatively, your odds that she will respond to your opener. Important note: I am talking here about normal online dating sites, sugar daddy sites. If the name of the town or neighborhood on her profile is exactly the same as yours, and it’s spelled the exact same way, odds of response go up. This is another interesting one, and many other men have reported this so I know it’s not just me. Everything below I have empirically tracked over many years of online dating, both with my own results and the results other men have shared with me.If you’ve followed my stuff for a while you already know all about this.Low response rates do not equal no sex, assuming you’re doing everything else correctly.In other words, a woman living in the next town over from you, about 10 minutes away, has the exact same odds of responding to your opener as a woman living in a town 50 minutes away, all other variables remaining equal. They drop sharply if they’re more than seven, drop even more if they’re more than ten, and drop even more if they’re over 15. I hate to use the 1-to-10 scale because it’s so subjective, but I’m talking here about women who are around an 8 but not a 9, 10, 6, or 7.As an example, when I message women under 25 my response rate is often 5% or less, but if I message women in their late 30s, my response rate can easily be 25-35%, depending on the site, the profile text, and the photos that I’m testing. I have several theories as to why this holds true most of the time, but your guess is as good as mine.Big topic today, one many of you have been discussing for a while now.I’ve mentioned it before…online dating response rates have dropped in a the last few years. As a matter of fact, there’s actually a benefit or two to this reduction in response rates I’ll describe in a minute.My best theory is that super-cute-but-not-super-hot women are confident enough you’ll like them, but are not as picky as a ten. The more providerish the dating site is, the lower your overall response rates will be.I just know that I always have better response rate chances with hot, but not super hot women. This is because women you find there are provider hunters cruising for husbands or serious boyfriends and are going to be much, much more picky (often to the point of ridiculousness and impossibility).Ironically enough, if you could take the best of those women and the best of those men, and place them in a big room where they could sit at a table and ask each other questions in person – you’d probably have 4 or 5 new match-ups by the end of the night. All they have to do is get online every day, sitting on their princess throne and file through the dozens or more profiles of men who have messaged them throughout the day.The problem with online dating is that you can’t see the person’s face when they’re telling you about themselves. I think it’s hard for guys to comprehend the world of online dating from a woman’s perspective. They then flippantly toss out all of those well thought out, carefully crafted messages from most of those poor schmucks, and then they log onto their Facebook accounts to complain to their girlfriends that there are no “good men” left in the world. Today we’re only discussing the statistical aspects of the women you’re messaging.
