(So no, guys - I won't 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 act with you, and we women don't have some magical feeling that forecasts how you will behave right off the bat ... unless you're sending us those red-flag messages on dating sites, LOLsigh. We have to see how words & actions match over time, at least over a few months, which I feel was certainly one of the other lessons here. I had some tiny signs that arguably could have been lime-colored flags ... halfway between green and yellow ... but I tried to set those aside under the other pole & cane we women are beaten with in Western society --- the "Give him a chaaaance!" one.

Internet dating may suck for men, but from speaking to my sister it appears far worse for women. It's true that you get messages, but many of them are one-line demands for sex, rude or abusive, or simply odd. I've received quite 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 intriguing. It is a little offputting when someone only stops messaging for no apparent motive, but in the event you're 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 different.

He asks one question, which is fine enough, but either being more brief or more substantial would be a better strategy. Way too many emoticons for my taste. It's not a horrible message, however he is not really coming across that well to me, either - and I work with a much more limited dating pool compared to the women he's likely writing (given that he's composed 30 of them and that his profile is pretty generic and focused on dating younger women, I'm going to say there's good chances that he is writing really desirable women in their mid-twenties rather than zeroing in on women likely to enjoy him as much as he enjoys them).
So, when guys become rude and insulting it is the fault of the women? How dare they not respond to any or all messages (which as all posters have stated are considerably higher in amount than messages men receive). Every girl is required by law to react to every guy who posts to her, whether that be sexist, whether it be a one word sentence, and never say anything rude (The definition of impolite online including not reacting, responding and politely rejecting the offer, reacting late, responding.....pretty much any answer which is not "Do me now!" Can make women a tirade of abuse online).
Sure, a female won't receive only sexist remarks on her dating profile, she'll also have one word messages, or common messages that say nothing. And perhaps, just perhaps, 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 exactly the sort of guy she'd need to go.

A study of over 1,000 on-line daters in the US and UK ran by international research service OpinionMatters founds some very interesting statistics. A total of 53% of US participants admitted to having lied in their own internet dating profile. Girls seemingly lied more than guys, with the most common dishonesties being about looks. Over 20% of women posted photographs of their younger selves. But guys were just marginally better. Their most common lies revolved around their fiscal situation, specifically, about having a better job (financially) than they really do.

One of many enormous issues with online dating for women is that, although there are real relationship-seeking men on the websites, there are also plenty of guys on there just looking for sex.
