I have noticed that there are a lot of the same people on all these sites though. All kinds of phony profiles- people trying to run financial schemes and such- a lot of Nigerians pretending to be Americans.

As far as Match goes, I tried it just recently (again) for a few months and was disappointed to see their percentage of scammers on the site had gone up dramatically.
Are there any other free sites that are decent besides Mingle2 and ? And when they found out that I was separated and not divorced, they inactivated my account but still tried to automatically collect their fees from my bank account. That depends on what one defines as "better luck."I have had more first dates from Match than here, but from Po F, I had one where there was more than just the first date, but after 4 dates, she turned out to be a "patient scammer" (i.e.
