So I'm starting to check out Plentyoffish and such after a long time of not using it. To my dismay, I found that craiglist ultimately drowned in the ocean of spam and crap, so that's mostly out of the picture. Additionally, since I'm going out a lot more and attending more mass-function events (i.e. events with lots of people), I'm not serious enough to pay for a dating service (ala Match.com, eHarmony, etc.).
I've experimented with lots of variations on my profile, and nothing seems to be working. In the beginning, I was getting responses relatively regularly, though the message itself was somewhat long (two paragraphs). However, after I started trimming the length of the message, and even after using the same message (and variations of it), I've been getting nothing.
Additionally, I have ratings turned on for my main pic, and they are quite low. I know for sure that I'm not a bad looking guy, so I'm wondering if I just chose a bad pic or if people there hold "higher" standards...
Either way, take a look for yourselves and tell me what you guys think. I'm not taking this too seriously, as I've only logged in a few times in the last few weeks, so criticize away!
