What to say on online dating websites

Perhaps my perspective here might help you when seeking your next mate on there (or not). I turned 19 and I was good with finding and meeting prospective dates on there.You were defined by how cool your My Space layout was – animated GIFs, custom CSS and your favorite embedded You Tube video.

Second, the number of dudes in shirtless photos and less engaging profiles shot way up.

After the fall of My Space, I eventually created my Ok Cupid account.

I really got into the quizzes that members could take. Ok Cupid prides themselves on the ability to match people based on responses to their surveys.

As history has it, when people defected from My Space to Facebook, that online community became a dust town.

Dating sites like Ok Cupid and Plenty of Fish (POF) became more popular.

They have a decent algorithm as I found myself conversing with smart, funny and attractive women regularly. There wasn’t much competition — that is, not many other guys were using it when I was.

Eventually as more and more men (late majority) joined the site, I observed two problems.

Very rarely was anything of substance shared there and more or less, everyone had the same opportunity to meet and connect with others.

The interactions were unique because of the anonymity given by using My Space.
