A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.
The unfortunate truth is that the paid singles don’t know who is free and who is not.It’s not as simple as some online dating services claim it is.Singles, both men and women, are under attack from the fakes. Potential love interests are 8% more likely to reach out to a woman who has the words “pumpkin spice” somewhere on her dating profile, than they were to those who didn’t mention the fall drink.That’s according to a survey of 2,800 singles released this week by dating site Plenty of Fish, which concluded that “ladies may want to consider putting the words ‘pumpkin spice’ in their online dating profile.” (The same did not hold true for men.)No doubt, this is good news to whoever is paying for the date, as a pumpkin spice latte costs around .50, compared to or more for a glass of wine.
