I'm sorry RyanAmysMom.

The married guys are everywhere, even the paid sites.

My match has expired since last August. I had deleted pics and all narratives. Just my stats are there.

I added I am no longer a member on my status line and in my info section I wrote saying sorry you missed out, I'm no longer a member, too bad as I am a good catch!

I added a pic back 2 days ago, as an experiment but did not change my words....

I now have likes, winks, messages! This proves that most men don't read, they only look at pics! Geez!!!

Momto -- sad, isn't it? I think what stumps me most about dating sites is how many people are there looking just for sex and how many seem to think that's all anyone wants. I guess the translation for 'looking for long-term relationship' is 'looking for long-term f*** buddy' :(

Created a profile on Match for about 20 minutes last night.  Was browsing my "matches" and saw my daughter's piano teacher's husband.   :o :o :o :o  Yup.  Deleted my profile.  'nuff of that nonsense......

Oh crap. Yeah. Sad.

Maybe the marriage is ending and PT's wife is on there also. You never know.

You really can't make this stuff up!

Message on Match.  I can actually read it as this member has the reply for free option....

"I really enjoyed reading your profile. I just wanted to say hi…."

This is what my complete profile says...

"Find me before August 17th, 2016...I will expire after that...
You didn't find me...
So I guess I have expired...
Too bad...
I am a great catch too..."

Where is the like button? :)

Of course the guy who I enjoy talking to the most is unavailable. He's in an on/off relationship with his girlfriend.

Wow I am surprised he was forward about this. Kudos for the honesty I guess?

We're very open, very comfortable talking with each other. That's why I'm so attracted to him. I love his personality, and we have a lot in common.  When we started talking to each other it was like we had been close for years. We talk daily, all throughout the day. I hope we at least remain friends. I really enjoy talking to him.

That's his decision to make, but I think it's just a matter of time. He has to see it.

I have been chatting/talking with a guy that lives 3 hours away for months now.  I like the guy but I just don't think it is going to go anywhere.  I keep asking when we are going to meet and he avoids that question.  Time to move on.

Went out with supper with some old friends this week, each of them met their significant other online so I opened up my profile, yet again. 

Lots of "likes" and one message.  The guy's profile is so "wild", it is so long and doesn't make any sense at all.  I am trying to be open, but...????

Hi needytoo! I met my current partner online, it took time and patience. I chatted up and met a lot of men and then one day found my match. You can do it!

Not sure what to say about the long nonsensical profile? I would be sort of turned off and cautious. Who knows?

Yes, Needy -- as you know from my posts, NG and I met online. Patience and a sense of humor are definitely necessary  :P

Years ago when I first ventured onto the sites I thought it was going to be so easy. Little did I know how many "weird ones" there are out there, but I guess it is better to find out online than in person.  Then I find someone that I think there is hope, but they end up ghosting, just want to chat or want to meet right away and sometimes my schedule I just can't make it on short warning.

Maybe I should suck it up and try one of the paid sites again instead of the free ones.

Needy, I agree with you. I found that the trolls seem fine with paying too, unfortunately. I think it's about gaining experience and reading posts here to learn about the potential pitfalls!
