Why So Long On a Dating Site ?
« on: September 10, 2015, 03:48:11 PM »
Has anyone any suggestions as to why some guys who are searching for a FSUW are:

1. Will be registered at 2/3/4 sites for 3/4/5/6 years and during that time they will never upgrade membership however they will log in EVERY single day even after 4/5 years.  What can guys be hoping to gain?

2. Will be registered at 2/3/4 sites on each site they will have premium membership allowing them to speak to literally thousands of women. However these guys are still there 5/6/7 years later. Whats going wrong?

Yes but its not normal is it? What sort of fantasy can you have longing into a site every single day for 5/6 years to look at pretty pictures. With no intention of ever communicating with any.
Wouldn't you get better results on Porn.com or something.

Or do you think these guys are also registered on all the Porn sites?

Puritanical Yanks.

On a dating site they can look at the photos and tell themselves they are looking for a wife. Cant do that on a porn site.
I apologise.
And so he should.........

I doubt they are Puritans from New England.

I expect this is largely true, but across nationalities.

Beyond that, you have the guys who are going to visit, surely, "just as soon as" they get their next pay raise, "just as soon as" they have more free time, "just as soon as" as they get around to learning some more of the language--meanwhile the set of "Living Language" CDs, still in its plastic wrap, gathers dust on the bookshelf.

And so it goes....

For some it might be a mid life crisis type of thing, most likely married, but test the waters to see if they can still attract those young beauties.
That's why the pay for play sites make the big bucks.
Don't shoot the messenger, links to articles posted, don't necessarily reflect my personal opinion.

I think Mr Fi summed it up well before when he said most guys are armed with a box of kleenex when they browse these sites.

But the amount of guys you see posting here who just haven't got a clue or any intention of meeting anyone. The likes of Adate cater for them well.

Go look up Adate app on your phone and read the reviews. Guys who are scamming themselves because of stupidity or are just plain ignorant.

We've seen on this board countless times guys unwilling to do normal things (phone, WhatsApp Skype ) to move forwards as you would in a domestic relationship. Instead of grabbing the ball by the horns and arranging to meet with potential women hey spend time making excuses as to why they can't go.... too busy at work etc yet spend every night tugging off on pay per letter sites.

That sums it up for sure I have personally heard "Just as soon as" so many times it gets boring :hidechair:  I have heard from so many guys "Just as soon as" I will make a trip to Ukraine stretching out 4/5/6 years!!

For a few years now I have been trying to work out the mentality of some of these guys.

I couldn't imagine if I needed to buy a new TV I would visit the TV shop for 5 years every day thinking "just as soon as" I get paid I will finally buy one.  :'(

Help me God if there was ever a world war and I find myself having to fight along side these guys :Zzzzsleep:

I believe NS1 hit the nail on the head. They know deep down they know this 20 year old, drop dead beautiful girl is not going to want them at 60 + years old and a hundred and fifty pounds over weight no matter how poor she is. Some of these guy are likely to have personality problems where they know no one can live with them. Also some of these guys are likely to not have any money for a plane ticket. It would not surprise if many of these guys have all of these problems. Better to play pocket pool and dream than face reality.

If I was 70 years old which is about 30'ish more years to go :chuckle: I guess I would probably still think about having some young bunny rabbit. But I would face reality and realise it ain't going to happen!

In which case I would just hire some young hooker for the weekend  >:( it would be much more economical than spending $$$$$$$$$$ on something that will never happen  :)

The world is full of fantasy for money, including this basement dwellers
wanting to talk to some hottie, with no intention or ability to ever go further.
We have seen people here banging away for several years and not making any trips :chuckle:
Also many people who live on their computer. Some people need to get out more,
actually all people should get out more :)
