How to start? Searching by location? Newcomer Introduction Forward to friends

  • View author's info Author Posted on Feb 11, 2009 at 12:08 AM

    A few months down the line after a nasty break up I thought I would give internet dating sites a go. Have uploaded profile and photos, and searched through a few profiles.

    Should I start sending out a few winks? Upgrade for a month or so and see how it goes? Wait for people to contact me or make the first move? Some of the people on here have been registered for years it seems by the comments dates. This is not a good sign.

    Also do people tend to only search by location? While I am originally from UK, I no longer live there and have a property elsewhere but currently living and working in yet a different country. Where to put as my location, where to search?

    Hi All sounds like I am not the only one that is new. I haven't even figured out how to search on "location" so in my opinion you are doing pretty good! I am not sure this is for me but I guess it will be fun to "play" with it a little and see what happends...that is when I am not playing with all my other toys! (twitter. blip DJ program etc. BLA BLA BLA

    Question: What do you ladies think about communicating with someone that does not even post their pic? I think it is a little strange I mean if I am willing to place my pic out there isnt it only fair to expect a man to do the same?

    Yes but even if in this age range gets you little response. Have contacted loads of men, all stated that location not really important, yet then many say I am too far away - I am Europe, not USA (not Russian or Eastern Europe - British). I am willing to relocate if there was that spark there.

    I think if I was prepared to date a guy 50+ (getting to close in age to my dad), then might not have a problem but...would prefer someone not older than say 42 ish.

    Appears most are searching for that age range yes. I just fit in there!

    I have just started by seaching for people that have similar hobbies and have sent a few emails.

    Finding a good photo not easy. Lots on here seem to have all these wonderful glamour shots of just head and shoulders. I can only find 'normal' photos of me.

    Hi! I'm new here and I haven't found the photo that I want to put on here yet. Are all these men looking for 18-35? Or is it just me? I'm looking for a best-friend, companion, laugh partner #1.
