We don't find anything romantic about whistles, name-tags or over-the-top party trimmings typically found at singles events so we have done away with them.
I have tried this in the past and found a bunch of women on there just having fun and killing time with no intentions of meeting. We started off just messaging each other back and forth, then exchanged numbers and email addresses, and met after a month or so. My cons: unless you are talking local with someone likelyhood of success is next to none. Just enter their ID number and you can listen to their voice and respond back with a voice message. I know if i had to pay i wouldnt be on them ever cuz why pay when you have the net and some of the sites are free. I am not sure how it even works, if its over the phone then how do you pick who you want to talk to???
I do think phone chat lines would work will well if blended together with the on-online sites. Phone chat line pros: you can listen to voice and u can tell a lot by a voice of the person. Most women are seperated, married and not happy, single and don't have the resouces to meet guys. I'm not really comfortable chatting on the phone with strangers.
Lavalife chat line has it where u can go to a site to see a pic of the person if they have a pic. I want to know a little about someone before my phone lines are open to them.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. There are a lot of strange people in this world and I think they found a way to communicate. good hearted women but use there loneliness to talk on these lines to help thme cope, they talk alot of meeting up with you but never do. Less driving is involved most i drove 1 way is about 35 mile. Internet dating just makes people not to settle and hold out for the best so in a way its far fetch to think you going to meet mr or ms. too many internet sites and chat rooms causing too many ppl going to many directions.
There might have been nice ones on there but it would have taken too long to weed through them...my opinion that is. Cons: internet dating is very slow going and going to a simple exchange of emails to IM to talking 1 on 1 on the phone to actually meeting in person is a very long wait. diversity, everbody is looking for something different. i like them both they both have its pros and cons, i notice lavalife a chat line has a site to see a pic of the person, so in a way a mixture of a chat line and internet works well but nobody has seen that concept yet. I know of one right now that is free for men but i dont think it is fair that us women get free and guys have to pay..
