Hi Everyone...I notice a real difference between match.com and other internet dating services. When I get a response from someone at match.com, it NEVER includes an email address that I can use to reach the person directly. But on other internet services, I often get the real web address of the person. Is there something going on here that I don't know about? I give lots of hints in my profile that I would like the real email address, but nothing happens. Any clues? I was thinking of posting here the handles of the match.com gals who have written to me not knowing that I can't respond. They probably think I have rejected them. Match.com is deceiving them by letting them think I can respond. They should really tell them which people are paying members and which are not. Have fun. Nerdyguy609@hotmail.com

I think it might have some to do with my age, getting older and coming more into my own...(I'm 43) maybe you and others who are looking are much younger...when I was younger, I took so much more, so much more seriously...

After the whole situation with the guy asking for more pics, I decided to give online dating a break. Fortunately, a friend has introduced me to some new guys (which is the way I'd prefer to meet men), so I still have some possibilities out there and don't feel like I need to go online.

No, not yet. His roommate called the other day to make arrangements for us to all go out again tonight. If the one I liked last weekend doesn't show interest tonight, well, the roommate's pretty cute and is a lot of fun. I won't be devastated if the cop acts disinterested. I have other options.
