(So no, men - I will not be blaming myself for this one, so I'd appreciate it if no one else attempted to either - it takes time to see & observe how folks are going to behave with you, and we women do not have some magical intuition that predicts how you will behave right off the bat ... unless you are sending us those red-flag messages on dating sites, LOLsigh. We must see how words & actions match over time, at least over a month or two, which I feel was certainly one of the other lessons here. I had some miniature signs that arguably could have been lime-coloured flags ... halfway between green and yellow ... but I attempted to place those aside under the other rod & cane we women are beaten with in Western society --- the "Give him a opportunity!" one.

Internet dating may suck for men, but from speaking to my sister it appears much worse for women. Sure, you get messages, but the majority of them are one-line demands for sex, rude or abusive, or simply weird. I have received very few messages on OKC (none in my geographic or age range, either) and never had any responses to my messages, but at least all the messages I got were courteous and interesting. It's a little offputting when someone only ceases messaging for no apparent motive, but in the event you are playing the numbers game I guess you simply shrug and move on, or if it weirds you out too much, cease online dating and attempt something else.

On both sides.

He asks one question, which is good enough, but either being more brief or more substantive would be a better strategy. Way too many emoticons for my taste. It is not a terrible message, but he is not really coming across that well to me, either - and I work with a considerably more limited dating pool than the women he is likely writing (given that he is composed 30 of them and that his profile is fairly generic and focused on dating younger women, Iwill say there is good chances that he's writing really desired women in their mid-twenties rather than zeroing in on women likely to enjoy him as much as he likes them).
So, when guys become rude and insulting it's the fault of the women? How dare they not respond to any or all messages (which as all posters have said are considerably higher in number than messages males receive). Every girl is needed by law to respond to each guy who posts to her, whether that be sexist, whether it be a one word sentence, and never say anything rude (The definition of rude online including not reacting, responding and politely rejecting the offer, responding late, reacting.....pretty much any answer which isn't "Do me now!" Can bring in women a tirade of abuse online).
Sure, a female will not receive only sexist comments on her dating profile, she'll also have one word messages, or universal messages that say nothing. And perhaps, just possibly, in50 messages there is going to be a message from a guy who read her profile, and wrote a message that reflects this, and is precisely the kind of guy she would wish to really go. But if she is getting the vast bulk of messages being offensive, violent or hurtful, you're going to blame her for not bothering to read every single one in the hope that the next guy is not going to try and hurt her?

A study of over 1,000 online daters in the US and UK conducted by international research service OpinionMatters founds some very interesting statistics. A total of 53% of US participants admitted to having lied in their internet dating profile. Girls seemingly lied more than men, with the most common truthfulness being about looks. Over 20% of women posted photographs of their younger selves. But men were only marginally better. Their most common lies revolved around their fiscal situation, particularly, about having a better occupation (financially) than they actually do.

Among the enormous problems with online dating for women is that, although there are true relationship-seeking men on the websites, there are also a lot of guys on there just looking for sex.
