If you don't see it, you can download it from the Google Play store. Turn it on and your phone will read whatever you touch on the screen and incoming notifications. Hint: To perform a regular swipe gesture, you have to use two fingers instead of one. You can adjust the voice engine and speed rate. You've set a custom ringtone for each of your contacts, but that doesn't help when you have your phone on vibrate.
Fortunately, you can create custom vibration patterns as well. You can tap out patterns to record.

Or, you can go into your contacts list and hit Edit and select the Vibration option for each contact. Go to Contacts and tap on a contact name. Under Vibration Pattern, tap Default and choose a preset pattern. Or tap the Create button and tap on the screen to create your own pattern. Need a quiet alert about notifications and don't want to use vibrate? Have notifications trigger your phone's LED camera flash instead. Just make sure you turn this off or keep your phone hidden when you go to the movies.
Tapping your phone's screen to take a picture sounds good in theory, but in practice it can make shots a little shaky. Here are some better options. Open the camera app and tap the gear to see the settings. Scroll down to Voice control and turn it on. Now you can take pictures with the commands, "Capture," "Shoot," "Smile" and "Cheese.
If your phone doesn't have a built-in camera app with this feature, you'll need a third-party app like Say Cheese. If you're taking pictures of a moving object, squirming kid or people who tend to blink, you often want to take a bunch of pictures at once. Open the Camera app. Tap and hold the shutter release button on the screen - or press and hold the Volume Up button - and the camera will start taking multiple pictures. Release the button when you want to stop. The iPhone can take up to 10 pictures a second. It will group the photos for you automatically so you can quickly find the best ones.
Tap the gear icon to open the settings and turn Burst Shot on. Then tap and hold the shutter release button and the phone will take multiple images until you release the button - or it hits the preset limit for your phone. But I didn't think I could go out and meet more women like her. Immediately, that became a problem for me to fix.
I had to start meeting a lot of really amazing women So I did. My next two girlfriends were just as amazing as that one I broke up with. And the spell was broken -- I now have full confidence in my own ability to find amazing, incredible, beautiful women and turn them into long term relationships virtually at will. And the instant I achieved that realization, any thoughts of, "Oh no, what if I never find another girl like her again?
Let's say you're moving slowly with a girl because you don't want to mess it up. If you were moving fast, you would've just asked her out the first time you saw her and it would've been relatively cool and fine. But you didn't, so it isn't. What happens is you start to think about her, more and more. You start imagining a future with her.
You start daydreaming. And a funny thing happens The very thought of her sets your heart aflutter. Because of that, you keep making plans to ask her out You get more and more invested in her, thinking about her more and more, and she more and more becomes this idealized dream girl in your head, a picture of perfection, unblemished by the sordid world around you. If you ever finally do ask her out, you're such a mess of nerves that you trip all over yourself and look awful. She might think, "Aw, he's so cute," in the way that a puppy dog or a baby is cute.
But she doesn't think, "Wow, I want this man to take me to bed and make me his lover and girlfriend and confidante. That's why holding up a girl as a shining image of perfection and amazing-ness leads to your downfall with her, time and again. You psyche yourself out, bumble things up with her, and communicate to her through your actions that she's way better than you are.
Having an absolute abundance mentality stops this dead in its tracks, because you never come to over-value a woman. She is what she is -- nice, pretty, fairly smart, fun to hang out with. But not a princess or a goddess; she's just some girl, imperfections and all. The second mentality we mentioned above is that of emotionally accepting the value of moving with speed. Now, unless this is the first post you're reading on this site, you've time and again heard me stress the importance of moving fast and making things happen with women. Sitting around twiddling your thumbs and waiting for the leaves to start falling or the snow to start accumulating or the trees to start blossoming again before you make your move doesn't work and your girl will have moved on by then.
You know that logically. But where you might not know it yet is emotionally. It might still be a shadow of a thought to you, abandoned at the first sight of your dream girl. And if so, I commiserate. I knew I needed to move fast but continued to move slow at least some of the time for something like 4 or 5 years. I'd move fast sometimes -- and often get the girl -- and move slow other times -- and almost always fail to get the girl -- and yet it still wouldn't fully sink in.
It wasn't until I pushed myself to consistently, constantly move fast with women that I incontrovertibly saw how superior it was to wait-and-see that I abandoned moving slow altogether. Until you test out both ways, you will never get emotionally on board because you'll always fear that if you move fast you'll lose the girl. The only way around this is trying out moving fast and seeing for yourself that it gets you a LOT more girls, of a LOT higher quality, than moving slowly does.
I've been with a lot of different women. Some of them have been very experienced women who've been with lots of men. Some of them have been almost completely inexperienced with men. Many of them have been somewhere in the middle. But when it comes to long term relationships, I've only ever dated conservative women with very low partner counts. Because that's what I like. Now, I don't talk about this too much because it upsets people.
That shouldn't matter! That's not a conversation I want to get into in this article; that's one for another time. I do have my reasons, but suffice it to say for now that my love life is not a charity; I'm not giving my time away for free to anyone who wants it. I have a lot of choice in what women I date; so, naturally, I choose the women I want most. Anyway, the reason I bring this up is because I want to stress that I date conservative women who've had 1 to 3 partners before total and who move slowly with men.
Think about that. I move fast. They move slow. But I get them, we have a long term relationship, and it's good. My girlfriend right now hadn't had a boyfriend for two years before me. She'd had men chasing after her like crazy in that time span, and they were still chasing her when I met her and some of them still are to this day -- doctors, investment bankers, coworkers, friends. They wined and dined her; called her and texted her daily; did everything in their power to try and make her theirs. I succeeded. On our first date, a day and a half after we first met.
I was unemployed and didn't know what I was going to do with my life. Why oh why is the world so cruel that these guys who so many men and women would swear were better than me -- better jobs, better courting of her, who were far more invested in her with stronger feelings for her than I was and had -- didn't get her and I did?
Well guess what, if you're superficial, you get superficial. Since you claim they only want Brad Pitt then I'm assuming you're not exactly Brad Pitt material, so how about giving non-supermodel level girls a chance? Just a thought.

10 awesome things you didn't know your phone could do
Guys date European women so much more classy,engaging and fun. Dont play these silly immature games with women from america. They are way out classed in everyway. Just sayin Women have all the power. Due to slut shaming they don't message guys first unless you're A a male model or B look like you have a lot of money.
Online dating is pointless for men since men have to do all the work. Women have all the power if they are young, thin and pretty under Otherwise women are invisible. Yet, Ironically, women will spend their 20's chasing all those players and bad boys who will never in a million years settled for these girls only to figure out that by the time they hit 30, all of the guys they could have had are long gone an these players and bad boys want nothing to do with a 30 year old girl cuz they're still getting attention from the 20 year old ones.
Lifelong cycle. I'm I haven't had to date a 30 year old EVER. Yes, I'm a man in my 40's who married a girl I met in my 30's. She was 19yo at the time and I married her years later. While in my 20's I was one of the "nice" guys who rarely could get a date, this was pre-online dating. While I spent a decade overcoming my shyness the "alpha" dudes were pounding the young women left and right, pump and dump, ignoring the masses of nice guys who could not compete for one reason or another, shyness, etc.
Sad but true and an example of "Youth is wasted on the young women ", who don't know by experience how to make the best use of their youth PLEASE, Ryan - tell me that your entire article was a facetious ramble that was written late one night after you had consumed way too many drinks. Yeah - like two quarts of proof rum! I have never read a less informed article on inter-net dating. You have the sheer audacity to state that what you have written is 'the whole story'? You state this, based on two interviews? You, my friend, are naive, foolish and ignorant beyond belief.
I would have more confidence asking a street sweeper to conduct a triple bypass on someone's heart than to rely on your advice on dating. Finding a match on an online dating site takes a lot of work, especially since most sites today are overrun by scammers. That said, for most people who are no longer in school, they are probably still the best 'focused and pro-active' option. Yes, you are likely to be disappointed, to be hurt along the way, but then I suspect that even though you were married before you left school, you still had your heart broken once or twice before you met your wife.
And yes, it is possible to meet people in church, at meet-ups and other special interest activities. However, a good many people you will meet in any of those places have no interest in finding a new partner. Pay close attention to what I have written my good sir - you married young and have only been married 15 or so years. That's a bit harsh isn't it?
What's Ryan ever done to you apart from waste a few minutes of your time reading his article.. That poor guy might not have all the answers but his article still provides food for thought - in my humble opinion please please don't bite my head off for it! And while I had the same reaction as you, that ironically one day Ryan too might end up on a dating site, I really wish for him that he does not because dear god it is an ugly parallel dimension!
Ryan, may your happily ever after last forever! We're already planning the places we'll be traveling together during our retirement. But thanks for offering your perspective. Congrats, Ryan. Happy to hear of your success. All the best to ya and many more happy memories come your way! I have tried online dating on and off for a year, 2 years after my divorce. Met a few in real life. First one seemed decent, professional, fit and all but too arrogant and thinks he's perfect.
Second guy almost stalked me so poof, I was gone! Third, I actually ended up dating. Normal looking guy with a decent job and seems to be responsible but way too insecure. No thanks! Currently talking to someone for 4 months now, the very last one I met online. I don't know where this is going but I don't worry whether it works or not.
Online Dating Is Frustrating for Men
I am the type who lives in the moment. We talk everyday and are getting along very well. But I have deleted my account online, not because of him but because the people I saw on one site are the same people I have Encountered on another. Same creeps who thinks they are 10 just bec they are muscular. I am well toned but never considered myself a Most people online think so highly of themselves but once you start talking to them, red flags started to come out.
Pictures are so outdated, like 10 years or so ago And those are just some issues I have encountered. People online are serial daters. Call me old fashion but once I start dating someone regularly seeing him , I don't entertain any other men. I feel like I am not giving this one a fair chance if I do. But most people online don't think that way, they think they always have a "reserve" so they don't take one person seriously and wolf easily let go of one.
I don't blame them as there are too many people online to choose from. So good luck to all online daters! I think the most relevant thing you say is people are serial daters. Most people I meet online, especially the hot ones, are some of the most insecure people I've met Makes em feel better. I just want to meet a girl I could be friends with before I start dating her. Very interesting article! It is nice to get a male and female perspective on their expereiences. I never thought I would be trying online dating at my age over I am from the old school world of dating and have found online dating to be awkward and uncomfortable, not a fun way to meet people.
I put up a direct, honest profile, stating what I was looking for on more than one different site. It has been extremely hard to find honest, genuine guys locally. I get turned off by guys calling me gorgeous, not saying more than hi, instead of simply asking questions to let me know that they are seriously interested in getting to know me.
When a guy does write me to say something more than "Hi," I have found out that a lot of guys have had their own drama with women. I hear the same thing over and over: women are very forward and chasing the guys, followed by lots of drama, high maintenance, which ends the relationship and the cycle continues. Once you finally find someone who is looking for the same kind of relationship as yourself, you find you are both very skeptical of each other.
I have only been able to go on a hand full of meet and greets only to find no connection. So, I too am trying to find outside interests to get away from the social media and hopefully, find the kind of relationship I am looking for. Trying to remain hopeful and realistic. I also do not want to settle, as that is unhealthy, dishonest and not fair to both parties.
I wish everyone the best of luck in searching for that special guy or lady! Since I've never been married, outside of a few long term relationships, I've been dating offline and online for a long time. They get hundreds of emails, and a lady you may have met at the gym who is a 5, thinks she's a solid 8 online.

In the last year alone, I've met 4 women who said they were divorced but were really separated all with really unique stories as to why their divorce wasn't final. Turns out, 3 of those 4 had family violence felonies pending against them! The 4th, I should have got up and walked out after she started talking. Not only did she lie about the little things on her profile, like having a degree, her occupation, and marital status, but she was a solid 2 compared to her pictures.
What did all the women I've met online have in common, a solid relationship with their phone. Now I call them out on the phone issue and I don't care what they think of me. If you can't take 30 minutes or an hour and put your phone in your purse or leave it in your car like I do, then stay at home browsing, FB, POF, Match, Instagram, or whatever else is the in app. I think you're giving women far too much credit.
Granted there are guys out there that are creeps and they probably never leave the house and use somebody else's pictures, but I'm willing to bet they're few and far between. Well said! I see no reason that a decent looking woman has to resort to online dating , unless she is super busy which i beleive is a great alternative for a busy person.. Essentially playing the role of the opposite equivalents of their male trolls , jerks and perverts You know what I'm a nice guy who's romantic, successful, and respectful and I get passed by and ghosted once things start to get real.
I think women like the idea of a relationship but have horribly overblown expectations. The three things I keep coming across are women who have no time to commit, just broke up recently and shouldn't be dating or they think far too highly of their prospects. Close your eyes picture the perfect guy now open them. If you were that perfect guy would you settle for you? Having tried internet dating and meetup, I personally prefer "live and in person" approach to finding a match.
Here is a point by point breakdown of the two different approaches. Dating sites -spend a lot of time setting up a profile which you hope will convey my personality and attract interesting guys -answer some multiple choice questions with four answers, none of which actually work for me really, I have to choose between a. I just want sex b. I'm okay with sex on the second date c. I always wait for the third date before having sex d. I'm a complete prude who will never ever ever have sex.?
Hey, since I'm definitely not comfortable with the whole casual sex thing, I guess I must be a complete prude. Now I'm feeling really great about myself! Okay, I'm interested in guys within a km radius, between , looking for a relationship, between , doesn't smoke, between , is single, between Yeah, I got a bunch of "hey sexy! Look through some more profiles, send a few more messages. Show up, and the evening starts off really nice This guy doesn't seem to get it that I'm not that into hearing ghost story after ghost story.
Okay, now he's trying to talk me into going to some dark secluded area on a ghost hunt What female in her right mind goes to a dark, secluded area with a guy she's just met? Conclusion: The whole internet dating experience is highly unpleasant. Meetup groups -create a profile, upload one picture, answer a few questions about interests, and I'm good to go -okay, let's see what meet ups are happening in my area.
Join meet ups -pick an event that works with my schedule, show up for an evening of board games at a pub -have a nice meal out, play some fun games, meet some nice people. Hey, I didn't meet the love of my life, but at least I had some fun, right? Meet a nice guy, exchange emails Plus, meeting people in person just feels more natural. I've gotten to speak with a few women, but only have met one outside of the digital world and we found that we didn't really connect. Which is my main problem thus far with the sites; lack of connection.
I can think of plenty of reasons why women wouldn't respond to me, but for those who do, we just can't seem to connect. Eventually, we seem to run out of things to chat about, and the conversations die off. I want to approach women in the real world, but I get in my own way as a shy nerdy introvert who has a roommate read, doesn't have a private place to take a girl back to, if they were so inclined.
It's a lie that there's someone out there for everyone. After all, if that were true, there wouldn't be so many lonely people out there. Guess I need to just drop the sites and focus on trying to make myself happy in life without romance. Nature didn't takes it's course as it did over That just doesn't work, period. She can be however interested if you got a smooth talk and decent pictures. Most of the time a woman is not self aware of what she wants and gets bored with the chat because they thrive on emotion, unlike us men.
But in the end you need to be your own man in the real world and become the best version of yourself. Attraction is not a conscious choice, meaning a women can't control to who she is attracted to. Just take care of yourself, read self improvement books. Go buy "Mind lines" from Michael Hall and educate yourself to create a healthy view of the world and stay away from negative news and media. I've been on Plenty of fish, okCupid, and Zoosk since November.
It is now April. On PoF, I got lots of views, but the only message was an offer to sell me drugs.

On okCupid, I didn't even get but a few views, and no messages at all. On Zoosk, I got lots of views and lots of winks, but only from guys out of the state, and again, no messages. On Zoosk and PoF, I even tried messaging guys first, but no responses. Almost all of friends married guys they met on these sites, but I have no idea how they did it.
It's like you're describing my experience on the dating sites. I sit down, think of witty things to write to guys, and I get nothing back. One evening, I read like 10 profiles, made custom messages that I felt were well thought out. This is on both OKCupid and Match. I do have one guy on OkCupid though who likes to send me dick pics He's finally blocked I've met my girlfriend on a dating site. But I've read literally hundreds of profiles, contacted dozens of women, went to a dozen of a really bad dates before I've found someone.
The problem is you're messaging guys out of your league. Close your eyes and think of the perfect guy now open them. Would you as that perfect guy settle for you? I'm not messaging guys out of my league. I don't want a guy that's super fit and looks like a movie star.
I want a guy that I'm attracted to, but that I'll feel comfortable around. Eventually there would be sex, which won't happen if I'm too self-conscious or if I'm grossed out at the thought. So if I dream up my perfect man, he's going to be a little hefty, he's going to have a receding hairline and his face won't be clean shaven, he's going to wear comic book characters tshirts, he's also not going to be hugely successful, but he'll have his act together, he'll be well educated, and sarcastic, and a little bit dark, and if I were that guy, yeah, I'd date me because I'm pretty sure if I were a guy, this is the guy I'd be.
I think perhaps you're reflecting your own insecurities and prejudices on others. Kim, if you're not getting replies, you simply aren't attractive. I'm not being mean just being real. Don't kid yourself for the sake of saving your ego. I agree with you, Kim. It's the men who are delusional. I'm an average looking 35, slim but not gorgeous woman and I've had terrible luck online.
A Guide to Manual Handling and Lifting Techniques
Men DO assume that women have it made on dating sites, and we can just sit back and let the decent messages roll in. Not true. It's only the women who are under 30 and look like models who can do that. I started online dating when I was 26 and a size 3. It didn't work for me much better than it does now. Men who look like George Costanza think they deserve Jessica Alba.
And, will ONLY message the super hottest women out there. While we try to message guys in our own age range, with a similar level of looks and intelligence and get ignored. It's a waste of time and I am so done with it. There are some very interesting posts here. For the ladies I would say I'm sorry that you have to put up with so many rude, insulting, crass men and their messages.
Very unfortunate, but most likely the culmination of a cultural whirlwind that has swept over the land the last 50 years or so. I typically respond to messages from women that I have no interest in and do so in a polite manner, encouraging them to stick with it as it takes time to find the right person online. However, I don't think the online dating model is productive, for all the reasons mentioned in the posts below. And to those that say that millions of people have met and married via online dating sites, I say prove it with hard data, not conclusory statements bereft of evidence.
In my case, I've had several dates from these sites. The first gal profiled herself as She was Game over. The next gal was very nice and I had met her at a gym that we both were members several years back. Very attractive woman, but I was sure that I would be happy being with her every day for the rest of my life. I could have continued into a relationship with her just for companionship and sex, but that's not who I am. I have to be convinced that I am falling in love with a woman, or could do so, before I am willing to fall into bed with her.
Old school, I guess. That last gal messaged me relentlessly.
She stated in her profile that she was "curvy"she was not, she was obese. Now here's the interesting thing. Like most other men here, I don't get a lot of message responses via online dating. But if I go out to meet women, I will get approached by fairly attractive women 20 years my junior, routinely. For some reason, I don't get approached by women within 5 years of my age or unattractive women. I don't have to do any of the work. And again, they could end up being friends with benefits, if I were so inclined.
But again, the issue is do I want to wake up to this woman every day for the rest of my life. So far, the answer has been no so no sexual activity occurs subsequently. I have thus concluded that real life, 3 dimensional contact is vastly superior to online dating if you are searching for a mate. You get to examine the product up close and personal, and you're not confronted with them whipping out their photo album to show you 18 pics of them skiing, hang gliding, with their pets, their kids, grandchildren, or ex's.
And conversation actually ensues without a question questionnaire. Best of all, you don't have to travel 30 miles to be disappointed. That's it I'm out of material for now. I met my guy. We have friends who met their partners on line If you havent met anyone after a few months then it is not the flaw of on line dating or the other gender. Why is it that many of the men or women behind those profiles you flip throgh have found success? People ARE meeting in person.
YOU are the issue. You may be the greatest catch in the universe but YOU need to shake up your profile, message style, responses, etc. Dont just tweak a few variables but start afresh. Haha, isn't that funny, the guys profile needs to be shaken, as usual is the guys fault. I have done online dating, for a good while, and met people, got some short relationships, out of it.
One of the main issues are, a guy needs to send loads of emails to get very little replies from women. The other issue is due to women having to make nearly no effort, as are mainly the guys who contact them. So, all they need to do is look at the photos and choose, without even bother to read the emails, deleting them straight away. All because they think with so many guys contacting them, there's always a better one just about to appear! The other issue, is how quick they are at labelling guys, any little thing he said she didn't like or goes how she thinks he should have approached her he is a creep a weirdo etc.
Man, I totally feel you. But I think probably there is some other issue because I followed all the possible tips and i have never ever even thought about saying "ur hot" or stuff like that and I only met a girl who wanted to find a man to get a passport to stay in the country after several years.
As if they were so much more special that we have to go beyond the moon not to even get an answer, because their "emotional" brain I am sarcastic about both labels you in two seconds. I think it is really too simple for them at least too many of them and what does that say about their ability to approach real difficulties in relationships and life? Women dont send dick pics to guys. That's why we are not creepy. If men didn't immediately make everything sexual they might have better luck. I never get guys that ask me about my interest or hobbies.
A lot of the men are their own worst enemy. Guys rant in their profiles. They have few good clear photos or they choose photos with other women in there and dont crop them out. Most guys put very little effort into their profiles and then they are shocked women aren't interested. A lot of men come across as bitter, self-absorbed, shallow, perverted, womanizer. They can be the nicest person but if they display any of those qualities they wont get the time of day. You know why men on dating sites are like that? Because after weeks or months of sending deeply thought out, interesting messages to women with shared interests and trying to talk about those interests, only to get completely ignored or get a one line reply and then nothing, most of us realized there's just no point in wasting time.
In fact, I found this article by googling "why do women never want to talk about common interests on dating sites", trying to figure out why this is the case. From all my experience it seems clear to me that all women want are cheap thrills from a hot "bad guy" - nice, interesting guys with common interests don't tickle their libido so we get ignored. Women get some creepy comments but some nice comments too. Men get no responses and are wasting their time on money on these sites. Wise up. Men don't get responses because they have a failure to communicate and they don't type so how do you communicate when you don't type the internet bathing system requires one to know how to type and if you pack it gets boring waiting on someone to respond back to you.
Then again unfortunately there are so many women now that are either gay and or bi adding to the problem too. As an internet busybody I hope to add my contribution to this awesome topic that has baffled the greatest and the not so great. The trend I see in most of the comments is Women siding with women and men siding with men, with few exceptions. Lots of people list personal anecdotes and use it it to generalise to what the real issue is.
To me, after giving a lot of thought to this matter as a result of my own dating frustrations on Tinder, match , OK Cupid, and PoF. I think the problem is a matter of choice. The ballooning of choice that internet dating has brought on now means we are no longer satisfied with our current options until our hands are forced. In the old days,people just met partners I.
School, at church or at work and found a way to make it work. Now you have a seemingly unlimited supply of partners. Even when you find one that is good enough, the current societal conditioning not to settle for anything for the best, or 'the one' just means the search continues. The 'top ' as in the most desirable of both sexes on these sites go on dates upon dates and most of them never quite find what they are looking for. Making us all a little more shallower as a whole. Also, the modern individual is a little more narcissistic than ever. This gives a lot of us a false sense of our worth as people.
This leads most young men and women to casually date till they wake up in Late thirties and early forties with a sense of urgency to find somebody anybody. I do not know how we can solve the dating problem but it's a problem both sexes have. PS : Even Ladies on bumble the pro-female dating app aren't having much luck either.
I totally agree. Don't know why but it seams to be very logical. That's a lot of competition. And those guys that get picked don't have to settle at all, why would they? That's why women complain. They simply pick guys that they can't "afford". Women and men do exactly the same thing, they drop less interesting people as soon as possible. The difference is such that women drop guys before they meet them, guys drop women after they have sex with them. It's the same outside the online world but on much smaller scale. The ugly The more attractive 50 stayed together not because they were never interested in opposite sexes, oh no, exactly opposite, they had very interesting encounters.
They are just cool and every woman wants them. So I just got this thought. Maybe the whole idea with monogamy is just an absurd? Maybe everything is all right but we are looking at it from wrong perspective? Maybe handsome guys should have many women and many kids and ugly guys should go to war and die?
I've been on Plenty of Fish quite sometime and a few other dating websites, I'm a genuine guy, who will make an interest in reading and talking about interests. Yet get very few replies, but I have had people say I'm a good looking guy. The biggest problem with dating websites, is ratio, there is more men then women on dating websites Go in chatroom's and you will see probably about men to every women in these chatrooms. Dating websites, is a bit like a competition at least it seems like that, where you're competing with everyone else.
I set up an experiment once, just to see one of the reasons, why guys might struggle on these sites I set up a female profile, with permission using a female friends photo's. Within minutes of setting up the profile, creating a fake bio Within half an hour, that profile had an incredible 75 messages from different guys, most put no effort in their messages or asking for one thing.
Sadly if that's the case for a lot of girls getting so many messages, I can understand why so many of us guys struggle on these sites to get replies. Another thing is and I have noticed it on quite a few of these female profiles, is the unrealistic expectations certain women set themselves. In the process extremely limiting her picks and possibly excluding somebody who's a bit shorter that could be the best partner for her. We all have expectations but it's those unrealistic expectations sometimes that I think is another thing guys have to compete against and why these women are single themselves, the knight prince on horse back doesn't exist in real life.
He does exist. He comes to the village, impregnates all young women and goes away. To another village. Then he comes back next year. Women are programmed to have children with the best men they can find. That's natural selection. I'm not blaming anyone. The rest of life is a bunch of different stories, some are funny, some are happy but half of them are sad. And now because of the computers are running dating scene, we have data to prove it. I think that this is first stage, we just noticed that something is wrong. That was actually very smart experiment.
Majority of these men are chasing after women that are not in their league. That explains why as a single 35 year old female with no children that I constantly get messaged by 19 years olds, 54 year olds, guys with 3 kids, and other men where we dont share the same values and ANY common interests. I am also approached by men in other states that want me to pick up and move for them. I've clarified that I'm not interested in men outside my parameters but many think they can change my mind. They think they are so amazing that if I met them I will fall in love.
Many women are different in that if a guy rejects us MOST will just move on to the next. When I reject men they become hyper focused on changing my mind. I wish more people would adopt the notion that if someone doesn't want you that you should just move on. Even if you change their mind its usually temporary. If I want to have a child of my own and a guy has 3 kids and doesn't want more I'm not going to change my mind.
I dont have time to give everyone a chance. If guys stopped messaging women they have no chance with and messaged women they have things in common with they would be better off instead of messaging some hot dream girl that is out of their league. Many of these men get angry and lash out.
And I'm also tired of the overtly sexual messages as well. You've deluded yourself into getting it the opposite way around. You are looking for nothing but hot, single men in their thirties, and so is every other woman on the website. Goes to show what primadonnas women on dating sites are when you can get it all this wrong. Easy there, buddy. But don't go telling someone you've never met she's "way past her prime. I do think it's funny that you label a "hot single guy in his 30s," as tops among men.
That's Me. Let me tell you , they're not all looking for that. I'm in my 30s and in great shape best of my life , 6ft tall, friendly, respectful, own a house, two cars, my own business, and vacation around the world.
