This is so weird it's funny.

I'm on a dating website sort of - that is, I check it every now and then when I'm feeling sorry for myself and remember I have it.

What i can't figure out is the guys who "wink" at me and then I go to look at their profile & it's unavailable--and it's the same day.

Oh; that is because maybe they hide the profile somehow when they are not online and then unhide it when they are online.

I dont know what that does except limit contact with people.

I think those are the fake profiles the developers put up to entice people into paying. They're up long enough to draw in a few people then they take them down before anyone gets too invested.

I've read repeatedly that we need to try to pretend we're docile and sweet and NEVER offer to meet them NOR give them our phone numbers until they ask for it.

I’m a guy and the first post in this thread is an example of something that men find so infuriating about women.

Wow; I wish I had a dozen suitors OLD.. I guess because of my age I might get a few stragglers here and there..

I write to men and they dont write back.. I think its a numbers game for everyone not just men... It works both ways.

I think it goes like this.. if we like a man they dont like us.. If they like us we dont like them. Its tough to find two people OLD who like each other.so yes meeting IRL is so much better..

Oh; and then I get the internet stalkers and ones who love me but wont meet me EVER.. they are just playing games.

By the way are you Greg Berendht from He is

Hi Beren,

I have been told repeatedly by men how hard it is for them. But the Missing Link - the mystery behind my surprise at his disappearance - is all about technology.
