I've been trying out match.com off and on for the past couple years now but have yet to have any great results or results at all! I know I'm not a "loser," nor am I presenting myself that way in my info. My friends and family tell me as much and it puzzles them too. I admit it can be a tempting source of discouragement, so much so that at times I wonder if my ethnicity is a factor, even though I contact women who don't have a preference in that regard. I can see exchanging a few emails and not seeing anything develop but the majority of the time I don't get any replies to my messages. On the other hand my friend who is 50 and divorced has had a great experience with it. He's been on several dates and is now seeing someone who is very nice. This has lead me to believe that online services like match.com are better suited for the older age bracket because those people are not looking to start a family or find the "one" - just companionship, which means they tend to have more of an open mind. Usually I wind up just suspending my subscription and giving up on it, but go back because the only thing it does do is make me feel I'm being proactive. So I guess I'm just looking for some kind of corroboration on my less than spectacular experience with online dating.
