Default No luck on POF :(

I'm from a bad, rural area in east TN. It's difficult to find women here at my actual age (27) who are single, don't have kids, and don't have a lot of baggage. I also have a difficult time talking to the average person around here. I got on POF about a year ago and have probably had no more than ten dates from there. I think I'm reasonably decent looking and I fleshed out my profile well. Here's the profile. Why do you think I have a hard time attracting dates?

I guess in your case it's the palindromic POFFOP -- Plenty of Fish (For Other People)

Dating sucks.

I'm not religious at all. Commingling dating and religion is a disaster for me.

Just checked out your area and browsed a bunch of profiles aged 26-32. They are within 10 miles of your city. I think there are about 8 of them (the sane ones) that were online today. Why don't you give them a try. The appear to be childless, unlike the many divorced women and women with children.

Why does your age say 23? If you lived in my area and you were older I would definitely be interested in going out with you. Honestly, POF is mostly trash and you would be better on a paid site.
