Been on okcupid, seems a lot better than pof, pof is horrible,,seems a lot of the women on there have kids, and not for single guys who have none.
To be honest, i am also on match, and i have female friends on there also, welcome to horrible ratio and competiton. They gets hundreds of emails a day so good luck getting ur email thru, i saw one friend delete 50 emails in 5 minutes based on looks alone.
I would stick with the free ones for now, i have had more dates from ok cupid than match, thinking a paid site would garnish more results and serious players.
It does not, and yes, women are just as shallow and superficial as us males.
