More men than women looking for love on the internet?

It seems to be generally believed that there are more men looking for women on the web than women looking for men. Why is this? Is it indicative of male frustration in trying to meet women in the real world? Is there something about the process that puts women off, or do most women just feel that they can meet men without resorting to the internet? Back in the 80's the convetional wisdom held that a man would get more response by posting his own newspaper classified ad in the "personals" than by respondinding to a woman's ad, and in my experience, this was true. On the internet, it's just the opposite. What's going on here? Does anyone know of an explanation for any of this? Anybody have any theories of their own?

I don't think men are looking for love, they just want serviced.
Women are too smart for that these days

Minky, when I said "looking for Love" I probably should have written "looking to meet women", but was too lazy. What I meant was, there seem to be more men looking to meet women on the web than there are women looking to meet men, for whatever purposes. The women looking for love are outnumbered by the men looking for the same, and the number of women just looking for sex is smaller than the number of men just looking for sex. Are you implying that "most" men on the web are just looking for sex and that "most" women arent? But if that really is the case, what is the big attraction of the internet to such men, given that the numbers are against them?

I have a feeling more men are looking for a sexual relationship. Women are looking for something that will lead to a more meaningful relationship. I'm not saying we aren't looking for sex though

I would support the observation that there are more Men, on MOST website looking for...something...than there are women. I'm sure that most of the women that have created profiles and visited these "dating" wesites are over run with offers, some legitimate others, well lets just say want a more "casual" aquaintence. I suspect that most women get tired of being hit on by every lifeform bearing an erect penis, and simply tune these types of sites out, walk away discusted.
Were rather fortunate that there are a number of thick skinned and extroverted women to enjoy here (AMD) as most of the "dating" sites have a three or five to one ration of men to women.

OK, that all sounds plausible, but why, WHY, do men flock to web if our chances are so slim, regardless of what we are looking for?? Or, why do women avoid the net if the numbers favor them? Are there just more men looking for women, on the web and off?

Attractive women don't gererally have to go online looking for guys. When they do they get overwhelmed with e--mail. They can't respond to all of it and some guys get frustrated then start sending abusive messages.

Guys are just horny dogs. Guys are always on the prowl for sex. It's the biological imperitave to spread our seed far and wide.

For one, women are not ignorant to the fact that what men are seeking as #1 is a sexual partner, not love. They connect love with sex and that's not how it goes. This will never change, we realize this and tend to walk away before we look twice.

So, if I'm correctly understanding what's been posted, most men are just cruising around, hoping to get lucky, and women, realizing this, tend to be wary of ANY involvment with them, and therefore avoid the internet as a venue to meet men. But by that logic, any venue where men and women could meet would be overrun with men and short of women. Is that really true? It would seem to me that a woman could avoid or weed out the horn dogs on the web just as easily as in "real lfe". Do women avoid real life social situations where men are present because a lot of those men are more interested in sex than anything else? Is this just a case of women wanting men to come to them on their, women's, "home court"? This is something I'm really curious about.

home court

Interesting. Haven't men been on the home court since the beginning of time? Now it's OUR turn and men don't know how to handle it nor do they like it.

Sorry 'bout yer luck.

I disagree. Men have always had to, been expected to, "pursue" women. That hasn't changed. Maybe my question is, do men prefer to look for women in a straightforward manner while women tend to camoflage their search for male companionship with other social activities?

Women have, as far as initial contact, always had it easy. A woman looking for a good time nearly needs to hit up whatever local social avenue, and simply wait. One thing that I hate is that men are expected to be the one's to initiate contact or conversation.

Men, at their root, are very simple, women are the enigma. Men know what they want most the time, and women tend to overthink and overanalyze. Part of it stems from culturing, the concensus of a "woman's image," et cetra. I think that there are some women who are concerned with being labeled a "slut, tramp, whore" et cetra. It's refreshing to actually see women on this site looking for sex.

I've noticed the increase in women only here to tease guys.
Sorry ladies - just an observation.

When I have arranged to meet ladies here... ONLY ONE has! The others seem to have a variety of excuses.

And guess what? The one I DID meet...wasn't for sex. Just drinks!
So even though this is a sex site, I chose not to be a jerk and pursue sex right away. I have no doubt that it will happen. But it will happen when we are ready... not just to knock boots.
