I’m a 25 year old masculine from Bangalore, India. I’ve been through a few troubled relationships in the past, several years ago. I’m single since more than Two years now, and during these Two years I loved my single status and didn’t even attempt to date anyone. But now, I’m slightly feeling the need to get into a secure long term relationship, which may hopefully lead to marriage after Two or Three years. I have only a handful of friends, all masculine. And there is no way I can directly make any female friends or date them. So I’m considering the option of signing up on a dating site. Very first I thought of matrimonial sites since I’m mainly looking for a relationship which will eventually lead to marriage. But I know matrimonial sites are for people looking to get married instantly. I’m not in a position to get married for at least another Two or Three years. Hence I felt a dating site might suit my need better than a matrimonial site. So I just want to ask, how effective are dating sites to find a playmate? Most people only say bad stuff about dating sites, like they’re utter of fake profiles and fake people only looking for brief term joy. And some people also told me that the ratio of guys to women on dating sites is like 100 is to 1, and guys never get any responses. Sill others say the women on dating sites are those who have failed to get dates in real life, so they’re the kind of women no one would want to date. Please advice me. Thank you.

They shouldn’t be called dating sites. you indeed don’t date on there. Instead, they should be called Finding sites. where you find the type of people you’re interested in. and in turn they are doing the same thing. you contact each other. email. meet in person and so on. Trust me..after being a a dating site for any length of time..you are able to discern from the truthful. valid profiles. and the fakes. In my practice there are MORE good fair people online than I expected. You will learn quickly. Good luck

What Ladies Said
Do dating sites indeed work?
See, the main problem is that I’m truly ugly, so there’s no way any woman will get attracted to me by observing me. Since the very first impression won’t be good, she obviously won’t like my personality. But if its online dating, I can expose my personality tho’ my words and make her like me, and only meet after she’s comfy. I hope you got my point.
Online dating generally requires a photo for profiles and most gals very likely won’t bother with a profile without a profile.
Dating sites are OK. My advice would be to find someone NOT on a dating site. Your search would be free and you wouldn’t have to deal with scammers, women not responding to your emails, etc.
What Guys Said
You could attempt to join some clubs or some classes where damsels & guys will blend, instead of a dating site. Dating sites are many a times tiring. I guess it may even work good in western countries, but a little raunchy for India.
See, the thing is, no one would be willing to date me if they see me directly because I’m truly ugly. If its online dating, I can get them to like me with my words and personality, and only meet them if they feel comfy.
But to meet a lady online, the chances are very slender. So that squares it all. And people will be skeptic about you while talking online. But in person, your personality may give a stronger influence on them. All the best.
the odds are much more in a woman’s favor on online dating sites than for fellows, I’d say dudes have to be in the top Ten percent of attraction on online dating sites, meantime women have to be in the top 50 percent
