match.com

Okay stupid question time. I'm thinking about doing match.com. I have a profile and all that fun stuff, and I've found some guys I'd like to converse with. I looked at that different packages.. it is different then what it used to be from back in the day when I used it before.

If someone emails you first, can you read it and respond, just read it, or neither? And what is with the profiles that are green?

um you can't respond or even read their message unless you are paying a fee on the site.

Well I figured that much. But there's two or three types of members now. This one says "Anyone can email or IM you" that's the really expensive one. Then there's two cheaper ones.

Then there's profiles that are green, and I'm guessing those are the 'Anyone can message or IM you"

i don't know what green profiles are. i just know i don't like the site, because you can't even read a message someone sends you without cleaning our your wallet

Well some of the profiles have a green background when you do a search. There's an option of a six month package that you anyone can email you and such. I think that is what it is.

But I don't want to pay if someone can't even read my messages

Here's an interesting blog article which might assist you. The green background is apparently an extra cost option to make the profile more noticeable.

I had one case where someone will send an email right before the subscription ends. When you try to read it, you'll have to rejoin only to get a scam email or profile not available.

Now their scam is both parties have to pay to send and receive. Now that really is a scam.

I hate match.com.. but you know why!
no, it was ok the first time I tried it because I didn't know what I was getting into and was more open-minded... then I had to go and fall for the first guy I really met on there and well.. you know the rest! It's hard for me to think about going back on there with that same open-mind I had the first time I guess... plus the last time I did try I pretty much only got a bunch of those lame wink thingies and some generic emails.. like these guys are just trolling for dates or something, hoping one of us will bite. Maybe I'm a little jaded now, I dunno... but now I think I'm too good for s*** like that... not to sound conceited...
Maybe your experience will be better... I hope so! you better keep me posted, k?

Well I'm trying OKcupid (but not finding any guys that grab my attention).

Then there's POS. Found a few that I'm interested in, but not getting anything back from them. And they viewed my profile. Maybe I'll have to do my own revamping.

not saying it's a crime... guess I like to feel a little more "special" than that... like meeting a guy that wants to really get to know me and doesn't just see me as one of many that he can hook-up with... anyho, don't want to hi-jack the thread...

back to you DG... still waiting to see your profile! you can PM it to me if you want.. or not!

Maybe they are just a little too short? One dude looked at my profile but didn't read my email.
