The one special factor regarding this dating service is that, unlike many others, this one is free. However, you may not have to pay in terms of money but you might find yourself paying when it comes to your very sanity.
If you are a man, you will initially view this website as a treasure chest of gold that has fallen into your lap. A free website with the opportunity to meet lots of women in your area? You never need enter a bar again and stumble up to that attractive woman by the counter with a gallon of Dutch Courage inside you. The reality, however, is far different. The ratio of men to women is about 7: Alas, these poor, naive souls are not even fighting for the partner of their dreams.
Upon viewing the female profiles on the website, I discovered that there were a great deal of the following: Oh, this cruel, shallow world. Older women over 50 who are searching for a toyboy. This is only the beginning of the vicious cycle. A lot of the men on Plenty of Fish are only looking for one thing and they are willing to drop their standards to the bottom of the bucket in order to get it.
No matter how overweight, ugly, demanding or rude the female may be, she will be inundated with messages from desperate men who need to satisfy their wayward libidos. Such men fall under the following: You look absolutely beautiful and I would love to have the opportunity to chat with you. For some women, this does work. This man will just come out and say whatever he is hoping for, which is usually followed by a swift finger on the block button.
It no longer matters what the woman looks like despite the fact that appearance is everything on Plenty of Fish. Personally, I find this type of arrogance mind-blowingly funny.
They told him that the fabric was invisible to his eyes, but that everyone else could see it. In this instance, the deluded women represent the Emperor and the desperate men are the wily tailors. Yet, despite the dismissive arrogance of the woman, her rejection was not with the intent to be cruel, but simply because she was probably so overwhelmed with messages that she only had one minute to spare typing a response before returning to the other messages in her inbox.
The truth is, everyone is riddled with flaws and we should take the bad with the good, or not at all. Similarly, there are a great deal of men and women on the site who completely contradict themselves. Meeting someone off Plenty of Fish can be similarly gruelling. When someone finally gets lucky enough to bring things into reality, it is not uncommon for the following to occur: People are usually ten stone heavier than their pictures. People are usually ten years older than their pictures.
People are usually not the person in their pictures. This is something I have difficulty understanding. Women will meet men who are hooked on drugs. Men will meet women who are simply trying to make their boyfriends jealous. Women will meet men who will suggest living together on the first date and marriage on the second. And after these disastrous experiences, people will resume their fishing and look for someone else, for the site is strangely addictive.
The mind-boggling, disturbing cycle will then continue.
