(Quote) Blake-808613 said: I am sorry to hear you are having this problem but I am glad to know its more than just an idaho problem lol... I have been on here for a few months now and haven't received a response to any of my messages, nor have I received any messages from women as of yet:(... As to your question of what men really want, I would prefer that a women take the reigns with the online dating and make the first move. I know it sounds a bit cowardley but to avoid the feelings of being perceived as desperate or creepy it would be nice if you made the first move. Pictures are a must and preferably full body images, at least one recent photo helps. In the real world I have no problems making the first move but online it just seems different... Thanks for the topic and I hope to hear some thoughts from the women readers on this...

The man has a point. There's always the question of "OK. How do I make sure to NOT sound like an axe murderer?"

But hopefully some of the awkwardness will wear off with time. I am fortunate that I had a wonderful and decent lady to chat with early on. No, it didn't lead to anything, but she is a friend and I am thankful. And there's other awesome women I've met. Hurrah. After enough experience, it won't seem so intimidating to make the first move. But this IS one place where men are as scared of the women (being judged by women as creeps) as women are of men.

I want...everything.


Is that specific enough?

Sometimes it's just that men haven't gotten to your profile yet. Men are not complicated. IF they want a woman, they will find a way to let her know.

Typo. I meant If, instead of IF.

I agree wholeheartedly with Kristine. You may have a part to play too, other than just setting up your profile.

Marge, men are not complicated at all. They have their needs in order, and drinks, snacks and TV come into play only after the most important needs are met.

Hi Nicole,

I'll echo what some others said. You have a nice photo but as guys we are visual, so more helps. The guy who loves you will do so not despite but because of your looks. More photos makes a guy more sure. Guys are rarely going to inititiate contact unless they feel confident, so more pictures will get more looks and contacts.

Also post in the forums.

I agree that having 5/7 on Church teaching means you'll get less traffic than 7/7, but you will get those of us who have "accept most of the teachings" on our filter.

Also, sending an emoticon to a guy with phrase helps.

Here's where I think you are hurting yourself- your intro paragraph is very weak. Your picture and your first two lines are where you get a gents attentio, so say something that attracts attention- either a cute pick up line, or something that you are passionate about. Then add details about your hopes, dreams and goals. Your point is adding material is to give a guy somethingto respond too. If a gent likes you and thinks your cute, but has nothing he can start a conversations with he'll likely not start that converstation. Basically make yourself easiy to approach and have a conversation with.

Also, in the seeking section don't beg. If you want a guy that is intelligent and humorous and honest and faithful, then make that a requirement. (in fact, honesty and faithfulness are far more important to a successful relationship than intelligence and humor)

Hope that helps!

Peace,

Matt
