POF. Short for “Plenty of Fish”. This app is similar to LOVOO, however I found that the quality of the users was quite low here. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone looking for a long-term relationship. Many people sign up there for fast sex and one-night stands (ons). I didn’t find anyone serious and interesting to talk to. This app is free of charge.
SeekingArrangement. This is a very different kind website. It’s for sugar daddies seeking a sugar baby or sometimes even a normal relationship with a girl that he can spoil. (Or for a sugar mama seeking a toyboy). The men show their income and net worth on their profiles. There are men on there that have anywhere from half a million to over 80 million dollars net worth. Crazy. Many of them are very handsome and offer the women trips around the world, allowances, presents and a nice easy life, in return for their company. A man offered me an allowance of 8000 dollars a month to be his sugar baby. When I read this I almost fell on the floor! I didn’t accept it, but it was nice to know that I could still compete with the young hot 20 year olds on there ;-) I was curious to see how these men are, so I chatted with a few, and even skyped with one. They seemed quite normal to me – just men with lots of money, looking for an intelligent and attractive woman to spend time with. They explicitly said that they don’t want professional escorts and prostitutes – just normal girls that want a fun life and need financial support. So girls, if you want to have fun and travel the world with a hot rich man, and don’t mind getting financial support and gifts for your company, then that’s your website. The men have to pay, and the women don’t pay to use this website.
The one common thing in online dating is that you have to be really patient. Have enough time to browse through hundreds of profiles and chat with many people. I have to admit that there are some strange and crazy people on these apps, but in between the freaks, you will be able to find some wonderful and beautiful diamonds. It’s possible to pick out the crème de la crème people that you like best, meet a few and see what happens. You have to ask them the questions that are important to you. Like if they are looking for something for serious, if they are single (there are some cheaters there!) what hobbies they have, jobs, dreams, goals, past dating experiences, etc. Don’t be afraid to ask what matters to you.
What often happens is that you will have many chats and your concentration will scatter to many people. Therefore, pick out your few favorites and get to know them better. Otherwise, you are lost in online dating oblivion, have 50 chats and end up not meeting anyone.
It’s not embarrassing and many people are dating online these days. Maybe your soul mate is on there? So why not check it out for a few days and see what the hype is all about? Good luck!
