best case scenario, you end up hanging out with a bunch of dudes who all secretly want to date you (they aren't on a dating site because they're in loving, committed relationships, and unless you list yourself as bisexual, you aren't gonna be meeting a lot of women) (also, i'm seeing this from a straight guy's pov, so maybe there are a bunch of dudes on the site doing this, too? is without a doubt the best article i've read about online dating ever.'s far more women than men on dating sites, thus women can and will be far more picky than "normal" and thus, all i can say is "good luck". rule of online dating (or dating in general, really): you don't get to tell people how to use a dating site. that mentality prevents them from dating anyone they consider beneath them, which turns out to be 99% of men out there. if this doesnt happen to most men then it means most men are just not attractive enough and so need to supplicate to women, earn their favor or convince them that they are good enough…and thats exactly what most men do in dating and sexual realm. hate to tell you this, but there's a world of difference between dating and jobs. it seems to me any woman who's fixated on dating men much more attractive than her, unless she's bringing something else to the table like a really engaging personality, is going to get just as few responses as you talk about yourself getting, and would start considering other guys because of that. as for as the dating sites are concerned, christian mingle is a complete waste of time and money… dated three women who were either wacko, psycho or dramatized.) there's no such thing as "natural" when it comes to dating. this could be due to something potentially better coming along, or they're really not into online dating.
