Online Dating Experience 39
Men Far Outnumber Women

45 year old male from South Carolina

I must admit it does my heart good to read stories from other men, who like myself, have had an overall frustrating experience online. I am 45, handsome, physically fit, and never married. The older I get the harder it becomes to find an available partner. I have actually had women who have been divorced THREE TIMES tell me that my "never married" status was a "red flag". I tell them I respect their opinion but ask them "If I had failed at marriage three times would that make ME a better catch?"

Universally I have found it true that men far outnumber women. It is a numbers game. Factor in the incredible competition we get from married men who pose as singles, and it is tough all around. I have female coworkers who date online and I have seen the overwhelming amount of contacts they get. Sometimes they can't even keep up with the emails. Whereas for every 100 women I have contacted, I get a response from two.

In using online dating in the past year I have made four dates. One lady cancelled, one lady was a no-show, and I met only two others who did not consider me their financial match. As David DeAngelo has accurately stated, "attraction is not a choice".

Bottom line: women will go for the jerky guy over the nice guy in SPITE of what they say to the contrary. They love the challenge, the mystery, the intrigue. Being nice, handsome, stable, and willing to commit mostly only appeals to women overseas who want to marry American men. Their values are different. Only thing wrong with that scenario is the fact that I don't want to date women who live an HOUR away from me... so why would I want to meet a woman who lives on the other side of the globe?

I am a catch. I have a great career, hobbies, friends and I can take care of myself just fine. It's just a shame I can't find a special woman to share my world with. After spending hundreds of dollars over four years on dating sites, I have finally pulled all my ads and given up the search.
