    New at this singles scene and am really past the bar scene...

    Anyone have success with match,com or eharmony.com?

    I found the lady profiles to read:

    "Oh a romantic walk, on the beach... holding hands and watching the sunset..

    ... desire a soul mate"... What a bunch of crap!

    What's with these women?... don't they realize what a man REALLY wants... to start a relationship?

    Any success stories... out there?

    Men want sex.

    Women want a man with money so they can quit their job.

    Just like the bars.......... Except the bars have no middleman charging a fee.

    Now these women appear to be well educated...

    What man would fall for that hold-hands crap ... before getting serious.
    ... if 'they' are seeking security ... Certainly they should know how to obtain it?

    There's only so many reasons that pretty women are on online dating sites. Caveat emptor.

    That being said online is such an easy way to get laid it almost takes all the fun out of it. Women want sex too, they just don't want to be thought of as sluts.

    I had good success with PlentyofFish.com, and it's free.

    I've heard some good things about this site^ I tried eharmony 5 or 6 years ago. They really did try to match you with someone that you would be compatible with. I lived in a rural area so my matches came very slow as I limited myself to a 50 mile radius. Someone in a larger populated area would probably have a ton more options.

    My sister met a good guy on match.com, and they just got married a couple months ago after a few years of dating.

    I know several people that have met with Match.com and ended up happily married. They are all intelligent with established, professional carreers that did not want to screw around with going to bars.

    I tried it when I got divorced and met a lot of people and had a lot of fun.

    I was on match.com, yahoo personals, plenty of fish, eharmony for a time, and match.com had the most sincere women who wanted to meet good men and played the least games.

    Try okcupid.com Like plentyoffish, it's free, but I think it has a better matching algorithm. Plentyoffish seemed to just say, "here's everything within a XX radius. Have fun!"

    Go to the gym and they will find you.

    I have been married for twenty years and just this evening some lady was flirting with me at the gym; I would have thought that the age difference and the wedding ring would have stopped that. Now the wife wants to see the 'competition'. I never knew forty minutes on an elliptical could be so entertaining.

    No personal experience but my wife's ex met his last couple of girl friends on match.com. He's been with the current one for several years now. It's not like I really want to know but her kids tell me.

    My friend who is not particularly attractive or smooth absolutely kills it on Match.com. If I would have known how easy it was, I probably would have held off on getting married and sewed some wild oats. Well, maybe not really, but a few people have mentioned that if you're halfway normal it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

    When I got divorced back in 2000 I dabbled a bit when I felt the urge and it never let me down. When I got back from Iraq in '03 I planned a drive accross the US from Key West FL back to San Diego CA. All of my scheduled stops were with chicks I had "met" on Match.Com and needless to say it was a relaxing, fun, and long drive accross the US.

    I never met any women that I would want to have a serious relationship with but then again I was not using it for that. I had no desire to find a woman to settle down with at that point in my life, and from what I could tell... the women I met had no desire to settle down either.

    Like the one bloke said... Women hare just as horny as us blokes but do not want to be thought of as sluts. Online the can be who they want to be just like so many guys can.

    If you use it like anything else in life... as a tool... it can be good or bad.

    I have tried plenty of fish with no luck , if you want a women looking for money or daddy for the babies then it is the place for you. Tried eharmony not a whole lot of matches locally and they kept finding matches farther and farther away not worth the money to me. Tried match.com not a whole lot of women on there mostly spam profiles trying to get you to go to porn sites .
