The moment you check a dating app you’re on & see a “like” or message from a really cute or hot guy...

You get a little twinge of excitement, but then realize they’re too good looking, so they’ve got to be a catfish. 😒🤦🏻‍♀️

Dating apps scare the hell out of me hahaha. Those people are more fucked up than they are here
SpaceJesus · 41-45, M
[@73351,marsbar] Whew! Maybe I'll luck up one of these days, when I decide to try again
marsbar · F
[@717388,GaiusJuliusCaesar] It’s tough out there. Lol
SpaceJesus · 41-45, M
[@73351,marsbar] Yep! But that's ok. I'm having a blast flying solo!

Apps can be crap; nah the people that join them as fakes and frauds or with scammers motives ruin the app, not the app itself is crap or it's designed purpose. Just the shitty humans that ruin it with alternative motives.

I am on apps because regular women will not date me for my life style choice. So living on a rural country farm that I own. Sitting in the tree line beside the road awaiting that ideal looking woman to drive along it so I can chainsaw a tree down to block the road so I can bonk her over her head and to drag her back to my farm house is just a tad bit ILEGAL would you not say, right! Hell I live in Southern Ohio after all, not West Virginia or Kentucky, heck we still have ethics here! LOL

[@73351,marsbar] I have developed friendships with four different ladies on a site polluted with the scammers of the world that are true and authentic women. We know we will never date or even meet, but we are great supporters of each other there. And who knows as the Optimist in my heart says, it only takes that one to make a difference, and I do not seek the many.

[@799841,WillaKissing] That’s great! Glad you made some friends. ☺️
WillaKissing · 56-60, T
[@73351,marsbar] I have here too, but I do not have them on a list. I just support them when I see their posts and respect whom they are. I put no expectations upon friends other than being friends. They know whom they are and I need not point them out.

Back when I was on dating apps, when someone messaged me, I always felt instant regret. “Like “fuck... now they are going to want to carry on some kind of meaningless conversation with me, and I’m going to have figure out an answer about what I do fun” 🙄
marsbar · F
[@686846,NewBeginnings7790] It sounds so complicated & heartbreaking. If he can make you swoon like that, I imagine he does the same for other women.

It seems like you’d crumble into pieces if he wasn’t in your life. So I wish you the strength to make the decisions that are right for you. 💗
NewBeginnings7790 · 36-40, F
[@73351,marsbar] It is definitely complicated and heartbreaking. Only time will tell. Whatever happens I know is what is meant to happen so either way, I know I’ll be okay once again. It’s not the first time I’ve fallen, and I know now just what it takes to pull myself back together
marsbar · F
[@686846,NewBeginnings7790] Ok, that’s good. 😇
[@73351,marsbar] i look at dating apps as for people who just want to mess around with lots of others or married people looking for someone to mess around with or have an affair with.
marsbar · F
[@1178169,undetermined] Sure, that happens too.
[@73351,marsbar] i kind of think thats mostly what they are used for tho.

You know the sites are legal scams because most will not let you view profiles or messages or respond without paying. Ones that do like POF are nearly 100 pct all fake bot generated profiles. I've met two women at speed dating who were featured in multiple profiles on about 10 sites so they're real but are looking for the alpha unicorn which I'm not.
marsbar · F
[@830706,zonavar68] Speed dating is a good option. It’s just not so practical with Covid right now.
zonavar68 · 51-55, M
Ha ha given the application of the 10 percent rule, I automatially presume (usually correctly) that any interest I receive on dating sites is from fake profiles. It's pretty rare to get any response and the 10 percent thing is pretty accurate with this.

Any good looking woman writing to me is either a straight out scam or a mistake (by her if she's a real woman).
marsbar · F
[@830706,zonavar68] Men have it a lot tougher. I feel for you guys.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
Kinda like a child waiting for Christmas. 😊
marsbar · F
[@322117,Zonuss] Haha. Yeah
SkeetSkeet · 100+, F
Sometimes they turn out to be real
marsbar · F
[@849619,SkeetSkeet] Yes, I’ve dated a handful of cuties & sexy guys.
TheSunisout · 56-60, M
I usually either find women on dating apps either too attractive from me or too unattractive.
marsbar · F
[@11430,TheSunisout] Awww 😅 It’s ok. You’ll meet a match one day.
TheSunisout · 56-60, M
[@73351,marsbar] I am quite happy just having women as friends😊
marsbar · F
[@11430,TheSunisout] Ok ☺️
zonavar68 · 51-55, M
I noticed a high portion of allegedly 'single women' have photos with their profiles that feature a 'furry friend' or several which they treat as 'human alternatives', and/or pics that include other people, often men, or 'blurred out'. ;-)
marsbar · F
[@830706,zonavar68] Sure, lots of people treat their pets as part of the family.

My tiny selection looks like someone took a page off the Humane Society, the page full of dogs that should have been euthanized long ago.

It ain't even worth a "hello".
marsbar · F
[@1073121,Leggs] Oh gosh 😅
DrWatson · 61-69, M
A lot of those sites have fake profiles created by the site itself, to make the place appear busier.
marsbar · F
[@338282,DrWatson] Yes, I’ve heard of that happening.
Sorry, most are amazing fakes....
marsbar · F
[@7393,masterofyou] There are lots.
[@73351,marsbar] Yes some are on here... It's a shame, they're very hurtful and down right criminal..
marsbar · F
[@7393,masterofyou] Yes, catfish on here too, but it’s more disappointing when it’s on dating apps since the purpose of them is to meet someone.
Shutterbug · 51-55, M
Geez you never answer my messages :/
marsbar · F
[@377577,Shutterbug] You must have one of those scary or catfish profiles. 🤔😒

😂
Shutterbug · 51-55, M
[@73351,marsbar] well you will never know now! 😞
