A friend of mine who has never had a girlfriend before at all he is almost 30 just made an account and went on two dates last week, at least. I was active on the account for a week…if that. I want to meet the healthy people who are living good quality lives, and that success, for me personally, only happens in person. So my tip is basically to not be black I guess.

With the proliferation of spammers, married people, general scum online, I have had much better success online dating in the past than recently. If you ever have an interest set up a profile as a woman. Meeting the person in person usually seals the deal or ends it.
