I really have no idea... on the one hand, it might seem that women (and men) join these sites with the intent of finding romantic relationships. That's why I join, now, I will say that it's proven difficult to find a mate that would be the right match.

Seems like many women are looking for someone different from me, otherwise I would have many more contacts. I've meet a number of women on-line but few have progressed to a face to face meeting and after the meeting fewer still made the connection required for a second date.

We all probably have unreasonable expectations, and frankly after being in the world for a long while, we have sets of "requirements" that must be met for the relationship to click.

I continue to hope that a good match for me is out there somewhere within "a stone's throw distance" and has enough points of compatibility to have a go at trying to establish a LTR....
I believe it's certain members that you get blacklisted by and you get no responses.But that is indeed a theory.It's very suspicious that after what will be 6 months you get as many answers to 60 or 70 sent messages....
Only messages I got was from another Galaxy.
