What have your experiences been with these sites, any benefits of subscription sites over free sites? I used OkCupid for a while but found the guys on there too weird and casual, but got way more e-mails than what I am using now Match.com. I still have yet to try POF but I hear there are tons of profiles, maybe more to weed through, but a larger dating pool? Thoughts?

I think it varies by where you live. I have only ever done Match and POF. I find the caliber of men much higher on Match.com than POF. In fact, I think of POF as "Plenty of Freaks."

I also think it varies by area.

All of the men are weirdos on any site. That's why they aren't attached. If they were worth anything they would already be taken.

I have several friends who have met their DHs or BFs through OLD sites so they aren't all jerks, but it's hard to find someone.

So from your logic, then, there is something wrong w/ you since you're not attached?

I have noticed on match.com, there are men on there from 10 years ago, literally. I first used Matchcom briefly back then and didn't do any online dating for nearly 7 years because I was in a relationship. I think there are guys on there that are addicted to it obviously, online dating creates some kind of shopping mentality that there is always something better out there. It is actually a form of commitment and intimacy problems, because if they keep looking, they aren't forming a relationship. Just my opinion. But all you need is that one guy that is right for you, and it take some patience.

I've never used Zoosk, nor know of anyone who has.
