I haven't yet.¿ Most want to flirt and when I suggest they call me or chat, nothing happens.¿ Not sure online dating is for me.¿

PS.¿ I'm in my 50's and have found that men on this site (at least in my case) are mostly talk.¿ Haven't been in the dating scene for many years but I feel like I did in high school.¿ They haven't changed much.¿ Just got older.

well this site was recommended to me and so far i cant figure it out. there seems to be men here but they are looking for something other then BBW. I was hoping to find the one honest man here, where as i could not find him elsewhere. there seems to be alot of wonderful woman here. If men only knew what was hiding here.

I haven't met anyone yet, although there is someone that I would like to meet but I will probably never get the chance sine I don't have the money for the stinking membership. Yep I'm broke! Bills, Bills, Bills. I think I have a relationship with my bills its life committed! UGHHH!

I am new to this site, can't quite figure out how to meet people who are interested in really getting to know me. I hope this turns into a fun and eventful place to be.

I have met a lovely man from another BBW site who is willing to look past the skin to the real me. Most have wanted to ...um....but have used my intuition wisely and have met some great people.

So we part ways after an hour. About 20 minutes later he calls me on my cell phone and says: "It was nice to finally meet you and you seem very nice", maybe we can keep in touch."

WELL HIT ME WITH A BRICK! WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS EH?

Because the second guy called you, it seems that he was interested, but just shy. I would think that he would not call at all if he were not interested. In my experiences, when a man was not interested or when he was disappointed in what I looked like, my calls were either avoided and I never got return calls when I left voice mail messages. If you like him, then perhaps you should take him up on his offer and call him. If you get his voice mail, then leave a message and if he does not call back, then don't call him again. Then you will know for a fact that he is not interested.

While you may find the second guy attractive, it seems that he has too much on his plate right now to offer you a stable, "non-dramatic" relationship. Besides the emotional distress that may come upon him while dealing with the legalities with his ex, he also has let you know that he has financial problems. When a man talks about being broke, that usually means that he may be looking for a woman who is willing to help him out financially. Or that he is letting you know that you should not expect him to pay every time that you and he go out.

Regardless of anyone else's intentions, it is always best to go with what your gut tells you. If your gut tells you not to pursue either of them, then by all means follow that feeling.

Good luck to you.

I'm totally new at this too, but am optimistic about making new friends both male and female. I'm not a paying member yet, but am considering it. Looking forward to new friendships.

I am having LOUSY luck! I met one that was "ashamed" to be seen with me.

And one who I've been IM'ing on Yehoo Messenger since July! But he tells me he likes to go out with the co-workers for drinks...which is fine with me. But WHILE ON THE SAME SUBJECT...he tells me that he once got soo drunk he slept on this co-workers (girl) couch.

Not a thing you want to tell someone
you WANT TO MEET!

I have a profile on Yehoo Personals, made 2 good friends out of it but geez...more superficial people on there!

sigh....not sure whether I want to give up and just LET it happen on it's own.

Fif, all I can say is that the guy who was ashamed to be with you must have been high on crack or something. Or gay. Or blind. Or possibly all three!!!!

Well, I don't know why, but I am not having very good luck with this process either. I met someone, he came on stong and I beleived that he was interested. Then he just disappeared. This is AFTER 2 dates; AND a follow up conversation saying he had a great time (initiated by him). I have sent out winks to others and emails too....and I'm not getting any responses.

I get tons of winks from the creepy guys with nasty profile names or captions. Seems like no nice men from my area or state or region are interested.

I won't give up. But I am a little disappointed at the moment.

I haven't met anyone from this site, as I'm new and only recently divorced. However, I did meet my ex-wife online, so I know that it's possible. :)

It wasn't a quick thing. We built up a trust with each other through email at first. After a few weeks, we finally decided to meet in person.
