yes there are lots of real men here.....and idiots too ahah
it takes time to find a decent one and most of the time it's difficult to have a real conversation but soon you will understand that here its like a little town with the same people signing in and out all the time.......and also recognize the players ahah :)
I've been here 2 years and I made nice friendships with very nice people. I've been gold member for a lot but its not worth it at all!
ps. now i put my pic just private cause I had my profile copied once! be careful o go hidden!!
I believe most of the profiles are real, I see several very appealing men who probably don't really need a dating site and possibly very busy people. If it was meant to be, they will log on at some point and find your wink or email and contact you. Keep logging on and keep your options open and love will find you because you are thinking the same thing. Sift through the fakes or site ADMINS who try to keep people interested when things are slow and pacify them with compliments and kudos, you get more with sugar than salt (although sugar is bad for you and sea salt is good for you lol). I wish you all the love in the world.
I am newly back on this site after being in a relationship and off dating sites for a couple of years, but back when I originally joined, I met several lovely men here: one in LA who is a hugely successful screenwriter whose work you would definitely recognize; and a guy in NYC who was a very smart, successful, decent man, but deeply wounded by a tragically terrible first marriage and unbeknownst to him (but obvious to me) he now has a deep distrust of women; a very kind man in Dallas, also successful, but one of those guys who can't be alone and was too anxious to just off check the "wife" box. I think there might have been a couple of others who were less memorable as well.
That being said, I probably had a 20:1 ration of fake accounts vs real ones contacting me, which, aside from being a bummer, is clearly a huge waste of time. And of the real accounts, there was an unusually high percentage of men looking for women who were not equals, either in accomplishments or status. In other words, successful men who are exceedingly easily intimidated by successful women.
It can be depressing to be inundated with negative stereotypes about men, and even more depressing to experience first hand how much of that is actually true, but I absolutely know there are wonderful, kind, successful, intelligent men out there looking for a partner, not a plaything.
