    Can I ask what you think of my profile if there is anything wrong with it?

    Not sure what aventurine is supposed to mean. Isn't that a crystal? Nothing really "wrong" with your profile but I can see why some women wouldn't swipe. Smoking can be a turnoff, kids can be a turnoff and your height. Nothing can be done about most of those things so it might take a bit longer to find a match but when you do, they'll be worth the wait.

    I just signed up on OKCupid. Of all the ones I've tried, this seems the best. My only complaint is that I can't add deal breakers. I have to wade through answers to find them

    Met my current bf on Bumble. So far so good.
    2 of my brothers met their wives on Match.
    I have a friend who met her husband on POF, they have been married about 5 years, have 2 kids, super cute couple.
    Another friend met her husband on eHarmony, married about 3-4 years they have one kid, and are also adorable together.

    I don't think the site matters. I think it's just who is on at the time, and if you happen to meet someone compatible with you when you are there. I went on Match, eHarmony, POF, and Bumble (over the course of 1.5 years). I was about to give up all together when I met my current bf.

    The only reason I went online to try dating, is because I don't go anywhere. I live an hour away from where I work. Long commutes, plus being a single parent, I literally went to work, grocery store, and gas station. If I stopped at any other places, it was on the weekend with my kid, and usually to the mall or kid clothing stores.
    So going online was the best way for me to meet someone.

    But I don't like to chat for a long time. I want to meet right away and if that gets dragged out past 1.5-2 weeks, I lose interest.

    Kids wouldn't necessarily be a problem for me, and the height isn't a problem for me either, but the smoking would be.

    I've got a question for the guys:

    My brother tells me his opinion is that I don't get dates because I'm intimidating. I asked him to clarify that one day, and he tells me that I can do too much, that I don't need a man and that a man wants to feel needed. So because I do my own repair work around the house, keep my own lawn in shape, do my own gardening, build what I need built, etc, I'm being intimidating and signaling that I don't need to be taken care of. (of course, I told him that its not that I don't need or want a man, but since I don't have a significant other and that sort of stuff needs done, its either learn to do it myself or pay out a fortune for someone else to do it for me.....)

    Anyway, his comments dovetails right in with my mother's opinion that I am too independent.

    However, I see comment after comment here and elsewhere that a man wants a woman who is confident.

    So I'm curious - which is right? Or how does a gal reconcile being independent and confident while at that the same time somehow project a certain level of neediness? Or is my brother just an anomaly to the typical male of the species? lol

    It does surprise me that was his viewpoint, though: we grew up with a mother who worked right alongside our dad doing many things that old timers would consider a "man's" work - Mom splits wood, puts on roofing, helps in framing, does minor repairwork around the house, and all sorts of other things, especially since Dad has become disabled. Our mom's mother is also very independent and capable, so with having those examples of women in our family, I am rather surprised that he sought out a woman that was opposite of the type of woman our mother is. His wife is very much a "girly" girl and pretty much doesn't too anything - my brother does the yardwork and the housework. I've never really understood that but then again, I ain't a guy, either *shrugs*

    I think it depends on the man. What some may respect in a woman others may be intimidated by. Id say if a man isnt capable of doing some of the more "manly" tasks that a woman is doing it may be a blow to his pride. Then again, ther are some men that expect a woman to be capable of doing things not considered "girly"......in my experience i have noticed a change in masculinity over the years. Not saying its good or bad, just different.
