I thought this was interesting. I think I had read somewhere else that the number of new member on match had diminished. I was on there the last time for a 3 month subscription at the end of the year and it was horrible--I would say I had no one interested in me except I probably got a few emails from guys who were so out of what I am looking for it's not funny, so I thought why continue to pay to torture myself when I can use free sites? I look at the free ones & it's the same guys who have been on there forever, hardly any new members, etc. I just ran out of enthusiasm for putting any effort into it, so maybe that's how the guys feel too.
Where do you think the people who were using online dating have gone to? Is online dating becoming passe?
I don't know. There are obviously still plenty of guys who are on OLD. Some guys stay on there for years. I wonder if they ever meet anyone? I think people could go back to the ways we met people before OLD existed, like going out to bars, dances, parties, etc. Also I think a lot of people like meetup groups cause it takes the pressure off having a "date" with one person but you can still meet people and hang out. I think there are a lot of people who like to socialize but don't really like dating and don't really even want to be in relationships. I have become very disillusioned w/ OLD and can't really see myself meeting anyone that way, yet a bunch of my friends are in serious relationships w/ guys they met on OLD.
