However, they DO get a lot of messages and so they can nitpick stuff, such as jobs, looks etc. I believe I have a good profile but honestly I think they judge my looks(I'm not that good looking/never had a relationship) and so don't message.Would you message someone and give them hope with someone you didn't find attractive? Firstly, they can see you for your personality and don't have to guess from behind a computer, secondly, no nervous ancticipation and thirdly, it's just better lol.I don't know for sure but it seems possible that there are more 'fake profiles' from 18-22, and more real women who create profiles simply to see what level of attention they get without any intention of going on dates.'Older' women are more open to the possibility of actually meeting someone from an online dating site.I believe I have a good profile but honestly I think they judge my looks(I'm not that good looking/never had a relationship) and so don't message.
I know they receive loads of messages but its very frustrating when they don't give you a chance.And yes, I agree that online dating has many flaws and compatability is one of them. You say you mention that you have a shared interest - do you prove it? I would message back if they told me something interesting about themself. Such as, if they say, 'I love going for long walks', do you just go, 'I love going for long walks too! If that guess is correct then there isn't really anything you can do about it - follow everyone else's advice and get out into the real world I'd hope the majority of people don't shut themselves off from the vast population simply because they're not what one might describe as ideal.It's impossible to know how compatible you are/ could be with someone just from looking at them or reading their profile.
