internet dating

I wonder if it somehow relates to the fact that people on the Internet always assume that I'm a man...

I don't know what percentage of internet users are women (I don't see why it would be that different from 50%), but
Only about 12,000 of the 5.5M women 'registered' on Ashley Madison were real
lmao, 99.8% of the women were fake

edit: and you do use a pic of a man as your icon

It's a Fallout boy, as in "I like to play Fallout". Men use female avatars (from manga, games, etc.) too. In old Guild Wars there was an overrepresentation of female elementalists among male gamers, because the avatar apparently had the biggest breasts...

Anyway, I don't see any problem with the fact that those women weren't real. They fulfilled those men's emotional needs probably better than a real woman would be ready to do. It's a bit like in Spike Jonze's movie "Her". BTW, long ago I dated a system admin who set up a job in crontab (at the main server at his workplace) to send to me love emails every hour. It was sweet and it was a good relationship, but later I decided to make an upgrade so to speak.

I once worked with girls who used online dating services and often discussed their experiences (e.g. one of them dated a guy in whom I recognised a London recruiter, but he told her that he was a trader). Apparently, one of the rules is that you don't have sex before the third date.

Just play it by ear. It all sounds so formal.

Congratulations, Irish men – you’ve been voted sexiest in the world

Women, on the other hand, place a premium on listening. When asked which qualities affected their decision most, 49 percent responded with “accent.”

Chinese dating apps closed after women revealed to be robots
Image

do any dating sites have actual women members?
match.com was paying escorts to pretend to be members and go out on dates with male members,
the hack at ashleymadison exposed all the fake women there (there's a link earlier in this thread, "How 40,000 'women' on Ashley Madison shared just six email addresses - all of them owned by the affairs website itself")
And so on

match.com was previously found to be hiring escorts to go on dates with members
speeddate.com is one of  45 web properties owned by Match.com (that's a lot of dating sites)
they have a widget on ithe site letting you know how many people are online at that time, so you know there's lots of people there for you to date
Except the "number of users online" is generated by a random number generator
Match.com Dating Site Is Reporting Fake Active-User Numbers
