Why do people do that?
I have met someone who I judged from when I 1st saw a picture of her on a dating site as the most wonderfull woman. I met her once and sure as hell my first impresions were everything and more. I'm in my 30's, so not exactly stupid or naive either. New to the single scene I tried the honest route, she seemed to be interested. I soon realized that I was the only one trying to make conversation. She was never rude, allways nice but very vague. So you might ask what the hell am I on about....
I'm straight forward, much prefer the direct approach. Tell me straight in my face that if there is not interest, why waste someones time?
So I guess I am just blowing off steam here... And to the guys, being honest and nice is the worst atribute if you want to meet a new chick. It doesn't pay! I will have to change the way I do things. Back to the old me many years back, no place for Mr Nice guy anymore...

Be very cautious about dating sites, especially the aspect of judging what someone may actually be like, from the very limited information available to you. A picture may well not even be of the person you think it is ; and you have nothing to go on except what they choose to say about themselves. For all you know, if you have only encountered her through the web, this wonderful woman might actually be a guy in hit 70's. Don't reach conclusions about women, dating, or relationships, based on this disappointing encounter
