    I would like to know if Amateur Match, UNTRUE and Friend finder are scams. I have been on AM for 9 months and NO ONE, zero wants to meet and just talk over dinner or a drink. There seems to be a lack of commitment.

    Friend Finder has a lot of foreign women, I’ve had three Russians and 5 from Ghana and you know what Ghanans want! Money. Now the Russians are a little more subtle and I am writing one now and she sadly fits the pattern. I am expecting her to ask for money any time now.

    Is there anything out there that wants people to meet or are they all just taking my money? I’d like to know those that are really interested in people meeting for REAL. I am fed up with the “one line about every two weeks or such and those who “just want to get to know you” on the e-mail and won’t, under any circumstance meet in the chat room for a one on one chat. I am getting very suspicious.

    Hello Rodney, unfortunetly not too many sites are for real. Many years ago when internet dating was free I was very sucessful at meeting women. There was a free site called American singles and I went on many dates with that one. But now days it has all changed. A bit of advice do not talk to women from foreign countries if they do not live within 50 miles of you than just tell them you only date local women. I been on almost every current dating site and I too have not had much luck. Do not give up my friend. When you least expect it is when you will usually meet someone. Get out more and do stuff like art and wine festavals or a nice local night club where they are playing music to dance to, women love to dance and almost always some woman will drag me to the dance floor. Good luck and let me know how it goes buddy, take care. Bill
