As history has it, when people defected from My Space to Facebook, that online community became a dust town.
Dating sites like Ok Cupid and Plenty of Fish (POF) became more popular.
Perhaps my perspective here might help you when seeking your next mate on there (or not). I turned 19 and I was good with finding and meeting prospective dates on there.
You were defined by how cool your My Space layout was – animated GIFs, custom CSS and your favorite embedded You Tube video.
After the fall of My Space, I eventually created my Ok Cupid account.
I really got into the quizzes that members could take. Ok Cupid prides themselves on the ability to match people based on responses to their surveys.
I didn’t think I’d have much luck on a site that asked me for my favorite Bible passage. Other women’s lists may differ — although I bet there’s a lot in common. I was lamenting the sad fact that someone I’d begun messaging with on an online dating site had proven himself to be completely illiterate.Hell, here’s the original post: So I’m on this dating site and this guy’s profile looks interesting to me.Christian Mingle had to approve my bio and photos before they went public. I thought choosing “Charismatic” would show how charming and fun I was, but Google informed me that it is in fact a kind of Christianity that “emphasizes the work of the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts and modern-day miracles as an everyday part of a believer’s life.” Whoops.The app chose my headline for me, which strangely announced that I was a “Single—never been married Woman.” That’s not how I usually introduce myself, but I guess my previous marital status was important to eligible Christians. At first I kept getting matched with men in their early 20s and was becoming frustrated by a lack of facial hair or bachelor’s degree.Very rarely was anything of substance shared there and more or less, everyone had the same opportunity to meet and connect with others.
