Register on that, and you get loads of winks and loads of visits, but no other site has being like this, granted I took some time to make my profile on this one, but still..

Are they all fake visits and winks to get you to pay the insane amount of money they ask to register for it?

    Match.com has been going for years and yes it's a legit site. I met my wife on Yahoo Personals, 10 years ago now!

    I'm old school as well, the trouble with the internet is that you never know who you're really dealing with :shock:

    I guess you're defining 'success' the same way that most of us would :)

    You forget tanning shops, nail salons, anywhere that has enough room for pushchairs and serves lattes or whilst at the gym around the cross trainers.

    I think the people who run them may be legit but there are definitely plenty of fakes on there.

    We made two profiles a couple of years back, same person, one obviously very well off, the other no mention of wealth.
    Both using the same picture which was of an overweight 40 something (not me) and who do you think got the most messages ?

    It's a particular type of gym though. Big chain, Pilates and yoga classes, has a cafe/bar (normally imaginatively called the cafe bar). Unless th OP is looking for something a little exotic in which case he should try a traditional spit and sawdust place.

    I think we need to give Willhub some proper constructive advice on how to score before his balls explode :P

    Willhub, mate. I'll introduce you to a woman who never gives you jip, never talks back, never has PMT, won't ever ask you to buy a round of drinks. Inflate to 40psi and if you like it tight, 50psi.

    If she stands you up, just go for a weekend in Middlesborough taking in Club Bongo - you can't fail.

    If you end up on a slippery path into misery and Celibacy like Willhub, it just might suck you back in.

    You took your time - I bailed out in '87, lured by the promise of limitless cash and flange down in the Big Smoke :)
