say that the site everything but legit!
It’s a SCAM! I think it was initially

05/17/13 03:42AMFling.com is a scam. It has been
operating still despite all the reports
that were raised against them. I think
it would be appropriate if next time,
you consult on forums like this before
you pay for anything. One should try
dating offline again.

05/17/13 03:38AMThis is actually a helpful topic and
would serve as a good reference for
young people who are looking into this
kind of dating. More and more people are
into this hype and it is only
appropriate that we know where this
started and would be going to.

A friend is about to embark on a journey to a brave new world. After years of serial monogamy, she is determined to enjoy singlehood. She’s got a lot to look forward to…flirting in the park, first dates in coffee shops, late nights spent with good-looking strangers in bars…but she’s nervous.
It’s been a long time since she had a first date, and she isn’t sure what she’s in for. Match.com, on the other hand, knows exactly what she’s in for. The site’s latest infographic takes a look at first dates across America, checking in on what makes singles tick during that all-important first meeting.
Who went on the most first dates in 2012? That depends on how you’re counting:
You might think most people are meeting at bars and nightclubs, but the reality is that few are finding their mates during nights on the town.
Singles are getting bolder these days. The Three Day Rule is becoming a thing of the past. 75% of single men and 50% of single women say they follow up with a date within 3 days. The bravest singles reside in Chicago and New York – 52% of singles in those cities say they initiated their last first date. Los Angeles came in second, with a close 51%.
Unsurprisingly, first dates in the 21st century are different than the first dates of yore. Now, 48% of women say they research a man before their first date and 47% expect to know his employment status by the time the first date is done. Ideas of what is and isn’t appropriate on a first date have also evolved over time:
After the date, the majority of singles prefer to communicate over the phone (61%). Other popular methods of post-date communication are “In person” (15%) and “Text” (14%). Social networking sites may be all the rage right now, but only 1% think they’re a good way to communicate after a date.

The 21st century is all about simplicity. The easier and more automated we can make an experience, the more we seem to love it. And the shorter, the better. Does anyone even blog anymore? Now it’s all about 140 character Tweets, Tumblr-style microblogging, and 6 second Vine videos.
It was only a matter of time before our short attention spans took their toll on online dating. More and more singles are turning to mobile dating instead, which offers an even more simplified experience than online dating sites. New dating apps are launching all the time, causing some to worry: Is online dating becoming too easy?
First there was Grindr, the uber-popular dating app for gay men that currently claims over six million users worldwide. The premise behind Grindr isn’t complicated: Why spend waste time at bars or filling out dating profiles when you can quickly and conveniently browse the pictures of singles nearby?
Then came Blendr, a similar app that attempted to recreate the Grindr experience (but with more of a focus on friendship and shared interests) for hetero couples. Blendr merged with Badoo, but still failed to achieve the success of its predecessor. Grindr works – Blendr doesn’t quite.
In the wake of Blendr came Tinder, one of the newest additions to the mobile market. Tinder picked up where previous mobile apps left off, requiring members to sign in using their Facebook accounts to reduce instances of fake profiles and catfishing. Tinder users are then sent profile pics to respond to (swipe left if you’re interested, swipe right if you’re not), and are only allowed to contact each other if both members mutually indicate interest.
Those three apps are far from alone in the mobile dating world. There is the scandalous and infamous Bang With Friends. There’s TrintMe, which claims to reveal your friends true intentions. There’s also WouldLove2 and EmbarrassNot, the latter of which breaks all your acquaintances down into one of four basic categories:
Sure, it’s all convenient. But is it too convenient? Transparency online doesn’t seem to correlate to equal transparency and courage in in-person interactions. Through the filter of technology, we often present ourselves in ways we wouldn’t offline. We feel safe – safe from rejection, safe to say cruel things we wouldn’t otherwise, safe to act in ways we wouldn’t dare act in person.
Studies have shown that people value things less when they’re too easy. Other studies have shown that being presented with too many choices overwhelms us, making us choose nothing at all. If mobile dating gives us too many options too easily, we may be just as single after the app as we were before it.Tag: online dating mobile dating
Are the women you’re meeting through your online dating sites not exactly relationship material? If you’re dating and not finding what you want, it could be that you’re missing some signs that the women you choose aren’t right for you. Likely, either they aren’t being honest or you both have different goals.
Following are five signs that the woman you’re considering dating might not be a good fit.
Missing photos. If a woman doesn’t upload pictures to her profile, then she might be trying to hide something (like another relationship), or it might even be a fake profile. If you’ve been requesting pictures and she keeps dodging the question, or sends you a glamour shot only through email (without actually posting), then chances are you’re being led astray. Consider women who are more upfront about who they are.
Lists of what she doesn’t want. If a woman has a laundry list of what she does and doesn’t want in a man (“no cheaters/ liars/ players/ manipulators/ addicts etc.”), then she likely hasn’t gotten over the last man who treated her badly. She’s basically screaming that she’s not ready for a relationship and she’s not going to trust you. Steer clear.
Wide age ranges. If a twenty-something woman is looking for guys in their forties or fifties, this is a sign that she’s likely not ready for a serious relationship. Many young women test the waters, and it could be if she prefers to date older men that she’s looking for a sugar daddy - someone to take care of her financially and/or emotionally. I’m all for expanding those filters and trying to date a wider range of people, but if she’s actively looking for dates who are that much older, likely there’s something else at play than just normal attraction.
Flakiness. Many women who online date get more emails from men than they respond to – this is normal. But let’s say you’ve been emailing a woman back and forth or both of you expressed interest in meeting, but then she suddenly disappears or she constantly makes excuses and cancels plans at the last minute. This is not considerate behavior, and likely she’s not all that interested or she’s too busy to make dating a priority in her life. Either way, you don’t want to wait around until she has some free time to meet you. Cut your losses and move on.
Unrealistic expectations. If a woman dares you in her profile to “act like a real man” or is looking for “someone to sweep her off her feet,” then watch out. Likely she has some unrealistic expectations about who she wants, and will often be critical or judgmental on a date. We are all human, and we all have faults. It’s important to start a date with more of an open mind, so there’s a chance for a real connection to be made.Tag: onlinge dating
