Barrel of fish dating
As someone else noted, you're going to want to enhance your profile.
You have a very negative look on things in general, even from reading it (not to mention your solo photo with that drab facial expression). or at least put on a happy face and look at things leaning on the potential positive.
I certainly don't get messaged by anyone I find attractive and I find this depressing. In before 'don't let the door hit you on the way out'. It is up to you, to present yourself in the best light, with the best pictures and the best write up about your self, in order to be successful........................the Online dating world. You professed lack of a social life is a huge Red Flag with a big cement truck blocking the road. If you can't be bothered to take initiative or generate interest in anyone, perhaps you should hire someone to do it for you.
I will not settle for someone I do not find attractive, but this seems to be my only option. Leanne, My first experience with OLD was 2010, on a site I had to pay to use. Over the next 4 years, on and off I used approx 7 different sites. You say POF is bottom - have you even tried other sites, have you even tried pay sites, have you even tried sites that are focused on your favorite activities or interests - or is all that much too much work or too depressing to even think about? A pair of scissors are pretty useless while in the junk drawer. The best profile on the Internet is useless if you're just going to be anti-social when someone contacts you.
People that says looks don't matter are just lying.
Yeah looks are not the only thing that matter but no matter how much I have in common with some one if I don't find them physical attractive I am only going to be able to think of them has a friend.
:) You can write guys, but fix up your profile, girl! Don't expect everything to come to you based on "what I deserve! You're no more special or deserving than anyone else browsing thru profiles and seeing your thumbnail in a list.Not to say you can be legit in rolling your eyes at how many men you have to scroll through to find one who's reasonably attractive -- OK.
