None of you were afraid of the possibility of a female from your same firm (HR, same group, whatever) being on there as well and then things get awkward at the office?

No what would be real awkward is if you ended up meeting a casual encounter on CL and it turns out to be the girl that works at the desk next to you.

Unlikely since 99% of the casual encounters on CL are men LF men (or boys).

Wouldn't worry about it too much, the odds of that happening are pretty low. Never used one myself but have seen others use them and enter successful relationships. Never hurts to try I suppose.

Read recently that something like 1/3 of marriages originated from online contact. It's no longer "weird" to meet someone on a dating site--it's culturally common now.

I went on Match.com in 2011. Reached out to 11 women and got rejected 11 times. Then I gave up. So, I'm not a great example.

Work out enough to not look terrible shirtless.

Have an opening message that's witty/funny and add 1-2 lines of customization in the beginning to make it seem like the entire message was custom written.

Probabilities. Just message a bunch of people. Multiple accounts too for short term vs. long term dating. Different profile pictures with 1 picture that doesn't show your face.

Okcupid is the best site by far.

Guy I know, who is definitely not me, had a near 100% meet:slay ratio on plenty of fish at one point. Not the greatest talent but if you are looking for some 6's and older/lonely MILFs to do the thing with you can find them fairly easy. As far as actually dating someone? No clue

This to all my hatin' folks seeing me getting guac right now..

'Guy you know' actually met chicks off of POF? I tried it for a week and it seemed like all the women were illiterate. Though that probably explains the near perfect slay ratio....

You seem to have knowledge with this, so I'll just throw it out there...how exactly is Okcupid better than Match other than being free? I've never tried either but considering it.

6/27/13

Just a heads-up: you have to be one of the first person to message a new chick that's even remotely good looking. The best ones get snapped up real quick. The crazy/ugly ones stay forever.

Not first-hand experience, but I've seen the effects of this shit. Sometimes it's funny. Sometimes it's really, really not.

I think that really depends on what you're after TBH. If you're looking for a fling then yeah that's spot on, find the best looking girl and put in a bid before she gets scooped up by some Misc bro that's jacked and tan. However, if you're looking for more of a relationship, the absolute best looking girls are less likely to be the best catch...you want the risk-return asymmetry to be in your favor.

Free = more users = more chances. Getting girls is just probability once you know what you're doing. The same could go for using sites other than OkCupid as well. Many have success with Plentyoffish, but I like OKC for several functional reasons (example, it notifies me if I already messaged a girl so I don't accidentally message her the same opener twice)

Interesting take...the functional reasons I can understand, but the free part I'm still skeptical about. Wouldn't more users (and all free) decrease the quality of the average user? By not being free, Match establishes a barrier to entry (no pun intended), which perhaps maintains a certain, how shall I say..."standard". Is that wrong?

6/27/13

But it looks like there are more options to the users that pay them. That's a lot more valuable than giving them quality matches.

The main difference I've found is that chicks on Match are looking for something a little more serious; whether or not it's due to said barrier of entry, I don't know. I think that with OkCupid, geography comes in to play - in NYC everyone seems to be on it, so there isn't quite as steep a drop in 'standards,' if at all. Not sure if it's as prevalent elsewhere. Can find quality gals (in terms of hotness and/or personality) on both though.

And Xepa is right, in the end, its all a numbers game.

Have used with moderate success. It really just makes the process so much easier. I'm not a big bar/club guy, so it's a solid alternative for me.

(a) You know the person is single. Or at least you hope so.

(b) If you get a response, they're interested. No need for fake politeness.

(c) The time invested is low.

Not a dating site, but the Tinder app for iPhone is fucking awesome. Buncha girls from my school and hometown use it, and if you have good facial aesthetics/text game you can get #s easy and set stuff up. The majority of the girls are 7/10+ too.

I used OKC for the longest time, mainly to look for cool people to hang with and slam a few drinks. I have met one or two WSO people on it, so the odds aren't as uncommon as you'd think :P It's a small world.

LOL at "facial aesthetics". Love the way you put it.

What's funny is that I'm not photogenic at all but in-person I have no issues "getting girls". It could be a personality thing or it could just be I'm not photogenic. Either way, dating sites aren't good for some of us. LOL.

I think it's Match.com that asks the preferred range of height. It never ceased to amaze me to see the range of, say, 5'11" to 8'0" (basically no upward range) that most women would put down. I thought it was interesting that there are many, many women who would rather date a 7'5" guy (who will probably die around the age of 50) than a 5'9" guy. I mentioned that to someone I messaged and she ignored me. Haha.

Check out Match.com. You'll be blown away by the number of women who have something like 5'10" to 8'0" in their preferred height. Granted, it could be laziness, but how hard is it to put in on the back end that maybe 7'0" might be the max?
