I consider myself a decent looking guy(or so I've been told) and I thought for sure I would be getting more responses but thats just not the case. I've emailed about 15 women over the past week and have only 2 of them have emailed me back. WTF? And I know they've checked their emails and my profile.
I mean, I even emailed some fat chicks and they ignored me. Its kind of a kick to the gut. Can't even get a response from a fat chick.
And some of these women on POF are ridiculous in what they want. Not even remotely being realistic. Most of them want a hard bodied Calvin Klein model.
Don't even get me started on the single moms on there. Their demands are ridiculous too.
Oh and a lot of the females on there have this quote by Marilyn Monroe thats such bs.
“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe
I've seen that quote used by women a lot on Facebook and other places. You just know they are ****ing crazy in head if they use that quote.
Dude...you are now basically competing with everyone as opposed to the few people at the bar.
Not to mention the fake people on there trying to steal from you.
Further, 2 of 15 is a decent response rate, and they ones that aren't responding to you are doing so for a number of reasons. Poor self esteem, disbelief, and some of them just aren't in to you.
