When my marriage ended 11 years ago, I went online. They loved to ski, surf, go to the theater, travel to exotic places, go for walks on the beach, run marathons and read. "People present themselves in the best light online," he said.
So I signed up for Match.com, which has more than 21.5 million subscribers. One woman wrote me, "Unlike Popeye, I am NOT what I am but if nothing else I am kind and compassionate and to top it off I am interesting and exciting." None of the women on Match were boring. Philip Muskin, Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center, is not surprised.
It starts out with basic profile information about you and what you’re looking for.
Initial signup questions cover children, marital status, interests, smoking and drinking habits, religion, profession, income, family situation, relationship history, and more.

"No one is going to respond to someone who says they are a couch potato and likes to stay home."I was lucky. (I have friends who have been on dating sites for years.)

Because if after 15 minutes you don't like the person you are stuck; and for men that means the bill as well.
Members only see intersection of what they are looking for and what other members are looking for. Free messaging and status posting for undergraduates (5 messages/day limit).
This website is only interested in ripping off your money but as soon as someone reports lies about your account,the management are quickly in sending you an email of deleting your account.... I'm a good looking girl and find it hard to attract the right type of Christian men.
I will NEVER EVER RECOMMEND this website to anyone... Read Full Review It probably works for some people. There are older men on there, 50 and it makes me wonder why they would contact a 20 something girl.
But then one cold night in November, I met a Match date in a bar in Greenwich Village.
I had a date for the next Saturday night for seven years.
