It's why being single is tough. We all want someone "above average", whether that's looks, wit, income, whatever. The problem is the math doesn't work.
This problem is magnified on dating sites. In real life there are plenty of subtle suitability cues that can lead to people towards each other, online people have a check list.
I'd also add that I think online dating is particularly bad for dudes. If you can approach a gal in real "meat life", you've probably put yourself ahead of 90% of the other guys. If you've got a little charm and self-assurance, you're in like Flint, even if you're carrying some extra pounds and live in mom's basement.
Online, however, you're just another perv hiding behind a keyboard. You'd damn well better be Brad Pit with a degree from Harvard Law.

Huh...Im new to this forum and read the first handful of pages of this thread with interest....hoping for more actual serious posts by men. Then skipped to the last handful of pages....what a letdown! Its kind of like a pathetic chatroom.
ETA: some people are posting relevant and interesting things...the rest of it is like a script for Idiocracy
Why not get a feel for the forum and the kind of banter that goes on amongst long standing friends, esp in threads lending to random conversations, before making such a rude, unnecessary, judgmental, bitchy observation about the place.
FWIW I found the recent discussion fascinating to have frank insight into things not normally discussed so openly. That is why forums can be great. Even if I have nothing to add, I was interested.

If there isn't inane banter and chat about bizzare and random things, what the hell is going to keep experianced people coming back to the forum to answer all the questions by the newbies. If you look in the other pages it's 90% + serious and sensible, people are happy to answer questions and discuss serious topics with new members and old hands alike. Shooting the shit is pretty much kept to the odds and ends, and that's fine every forum needs a banter space.
Seriosuly have you been on the internet before?
You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................
