women with their heads in the ether seldom deign to fly down to check out the crop of men. Most of the women's profile's appear to be permanent.
Here is what I said when i joined:
seek long term monogamy with a stable partner. I am attracted to your kindness, easy temperament, generosity of heart, tolerance, kookiness, and love for animals.
The other part of my brain seeks a svelte, smart, confident, artsy-type, who loves to explore the outdoors, museums, cinema - wherever I can best show you off - actually, so many things become fun again not having to go alone.
It's important to both of us we have our own interests and pursuits, and independence, but also that we enjoy doing some of the same things, or interested in new ones.
Here's what I say now: I have been on and off the dating sites (purgatorio) for far too long, but I have in that time been able to make comparisons. I had high hopes joining this site after suffering on Match and OKC. I thought I'd connect with more down to earth women. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. MeetMindful has far and away the lowest ROI of any dating site - even POF.
I send lovely, sweet messages infrequently on MM. On an average site, about 10% of these will be returned. it doesn't matter how sweet, sincere, clever, insightful - MM women respond less than 5% of the time, if that. That's right: women deign to return less than 1 in 20 messages. Not sure if that qualifies as down to earth, it's more head in the clouds. It also means that well intended gentlemen who are treated similarly will never perpetuate this site.
I know this because I have probably seen every single women's profile on this site (bad pennies all) - and guess what? They join, but they rarely take their profile down because they are simply not meeting men. I'm beginning to think that that may have never been their intention. If they were serious, they would quit and join sites with larger constituencies of credible men and women who actually want to meet someone.
MeetMindful is to me, a wasteland of esoteric, stuck up, uncongenial women who in all likelihood, are ultimately undateable, despite the airs of more Goddesses than all of Ancient Greece - methinks not. MeetMindful is no more than a charade of a dating site, with the lowest prospects of any other site in existence.
It's similar to the CoExist bumper stickers; those people usually turn out to be the most intolerant and wacky people you will ever meet. It's an ironic shame that a dating site that preaches loving kindness happens to be the most alienating and lonely place of all - a paramount of hypocrisy. That's why I quit. As of next Friday.
Oh, and you godesses - good luck with that.
