I just started on Skout, and yes I have a "hood" handle above but I am an upstanding, suburban professional looking for a long term relationship. The nice thing is that you can chat with someone, the not great thing is that many look like they are from the hood.
I'll bet there are some really nice guys but I can see where the weirdo factor could come in, with such low filters. It is too easy to sign up.
From the women I have chatted with on OKCupid, Skout, Zoosk, all of them get pictures of junk from guys. And all kinds of sob stories. They seem to think that because they have no teeth and have been dumped 6 times, a woman will like the more. WTF?? Ignorant...
Easy to sign up and chat with someone. Free.
Attracts riff raff because it is free.
T$ does recommend Skout to friends/family
