I have been sharing information on several dating sites.  Let me share some of my expericences from this site:  This site runs hot and cold, a couple of weeks ago I had hits right and left. Bam, bam, bam! Handsom men, from all parts of the country.  There is a warning on this site, don't IM too quickly with the people you meet.  Well, I was so flattered I went right to IM.  This one guy, lets call him David was on business in London, finally he shared with me his money was running low and if I would be so kind as to send him some money, because we were on our way to being soul mates, to help him get back to the states. DO I LOOK STUPID!!  He was reported to this site and he is now gone.  Another guy from GA I think, was owner of big company working in Saudi Arabia. Just happened the industry I work in was the same as his.  I asked to visit his website and maybe do some business with in the future and he dissapeared as quick as water spilled on a hot rock! The last guy, Robert I think, was from Waco, TX.  He fell in love with me three minutes after we IM. He sent me pictures of he and his kids.  He said how I was the woman of his dreams.  Pretty cheesey really. After a bit some of my questions went unanswered: I then asked him about the cult led by David Koresh.  He had no idea who I was talking about! I blasted him as a scammer and to drop dead.  I reported him, well it turned out I reported him twice.  I was looking thru the pictures and there was Robert again.  This time he was younger, widowed, from NY and had no children this time.  The picture he used was the same one he sent me with the kids in the background! Again, DO I LOOK STUPID! If anyone else runs into men or women for that matter, don't be embarassed, just report them. I have but in my profile please be verified. It is so simple to do.

My English could be poor to. I'm from Europe, so it is my second language. I'm here because I hoped for new start. I did live in USA for 10 years. Divorce is hard ,so I went back to Europe to be closer to my family ( for some moral support) Scammers could be from all over the world. We simply (must) be careful. Question is this (dating site) working? I don't want to pay money for gold membership ,if this (site)is not even working.

I have the same issue as Olderhorseman51.  Many of the matches have not been on for awhile.  I really believe everyone should respond to their emails with a hello, but not interestd in a very kind way. 

I am glad you, mymulegus, were saavy enough to see through the lies.

I haven't had any scammers lately.  I am also on another site and I had a guy asked "if I knew how to please a man" after he said some other crap.  I told him I just lay there and to bugger off.  I think everyone needs to listen close to what folks say on this site or any site.  Listen for the little inconsistancys or the questions that go unanswered.  I have seen these words in messages to me, cheques, and not checks, very european or canadian for that matter.  I have seen theatre and not theater and honour and not honor. I use to get ones with poor english.  Or they use a strange turn of phrase.  Sometime when I am IM with someone long pauses are between messages.  Sometime I think they are looking up stuff on internet to answer or they don't answer at all. Oh I asked one guy if I could google him and he said what's that. Just be careful.  It is not fun to get your feelings hurt.

Main thing I see is that many women that come up in my searches are GONE. Haven't been on the site in 2 weeks or a month or more and don't think they plan to come back. I have emailed couple no response.I guess Iam at a disavantage because I smoke not much but I do. Looking for smoker so I don't hear nagging about the habit. Also there are not many women looking for a Man my age. So with two strikes against me I may have just wasted my time and money being here. My choice is bars which I don't do, being here, or alone which may happen anyway. LOL Bottom line is we ( the real people on this site) would like to find someone to connect to but given the scum scammers and lack of people who stay with it for any time I would say chances are slim to none! Wish it isn't so BUT well time will tell. I do wish you and the other real people out there much luck with their seach. I will continue mine for awhile here. How long ????? Micheal
