I started off my online dating journey on eHarmony. I did have the most ‘luck’ on this site, however, it’s not cheap, I kept getting matched with people who lived nowhere near (even though my radius thing wasn’t that far!!) and I only got a handful of matches a day! I did meet two very nice guys though, had some lovely dates … then they both turned out to be a***holes!!
Went onto POF next … there’s a lot of wierdos on there!! My inbox was either full of “hi” or men telling me in explicit detail what they’d like to do to me (I’m 36, divorced, 3 kids, far from hot … I’m guessing it was a standard message!! Maybe I was meant to swoon?!?) I did have a few nice conversations with people though but they never led anywhere. There were also a lot of men I recognised from living locally … not sure if that’s good or bad?!
Bumble next. I found this site really frustrating! Women message first which is an ok concept BUT no one ever replied!! Even when we were supposed to have swiped on each other and be a match or whatever, they just didn’t message back! Maybe I need to work on my opening message!!
Then match, purely because I had an email for a £5 month subscription so figured I’d use it. Again, not much success to write home about but I did have a few nice conversations, swapped number with a couple and talked on the phone, but nothing I felt was going anywhere. I definitely wouldn’t pay the regular subscription fees.
If anyone can recommend any others then I’d be very grateful … otherwise I fear I too will be single forever ??
