Default Dating site for people who want to get married...

Hi all,
I am a 36 year old female who is looking to settle down. I am attractive and have no problem meeting guys but they are not guys who are ready to settle down. I look younger than I am so I tend to attract young guys and they are just not looking for the same thing as me. I try to just go about living my life but I just never meet any interesting guys. I thought I would give the online dating site a try but I don't to waste my time or anyone elses. Can anyone tell me the name of the dating site geered towards people looking for a long-term relationship that could lead to marriage. I know there was a previous thread about this but I can't find it. Thanks

I'd be uncomfortable using one of these sites....but that's just my personal feeling.

i looked at "plenty of fish .com" but havent had any luck on there
its hard to find people in this age group cause most of the good ones are married.
i am 34 and having the same problem
all the women in the 30s are married
all thats in the bars is 21 year olds or alcoholics that have been sitting there for the last 20 years

Maybe you're looking for love in all the wrong places.

You could probably find this on plentyoffish.com but I would probably suggest putting up a bare profile and looking around at the available guys, reading their profiles and seeing which ones appeal to you and that are looking LTR.

If you put up a full profile with a pretty pic then you will have to deal with a bunch of 25yo's, 65yo's, outright liars etc. and weed through them. I think you are better off doing the contacting.

I had a profile up there but it's currently hidden as I just started dating a woman recently from there and am seeing how it progresses. (She contacted me) I think it's a decent site if you know how to use it.

I'll second eHarmony. I'm losing track of the people I know that have met on that site now.

I checked that site out MG...and found many guys that were also on Match. In fact, the guy I'm dating now was on both!
