A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.From concise bios and photos, to values and cultural insights, we aim to show you the whole person. Searching for friends, casual dating, serious relationships or just someone to go to the movies with?
