How weird is this place?

So, it's my first time to a website that helps you find 'friends'. Sure, I've looked at them before, but Ive never made an account, taken 30 minutes to fill out tests and questions, etc. Is it cool? Don't know yet. It seems like it could work, but after reading about 50 profiles, I'm also weirded out.
I see a lot of escorts looking for work, and the rest seem to all be amazing women looking for either sex or the right guy to spend their life with. Is it possible this is the holy place where only the smart guys go to get women? Is the bar scene for the ignorant who haven't been told about this secret place? And, does this site prove that woman are as horny as guys are? Yup, I'm pretty sure about the last one!

Now, what am I doing here. I figure I'm looking for something long term with the right woman, but I'll settle for everything else in the meantime. Why be completely single and lonely, when you can be single yet satisfied. Not sure what I'll find here though.

I've seen a few different profiles that I find amazing. One is from a beautiful mid 20s, aspiring woman that likes to travel. Her entire post seems like a dream come true. But, will I ever hear back? Will I not fit her desires? Thats the weirdest part about this, because in real world dating and hitting on people at the bar, you get instance denials or successes. Here, you express interest and hear back a week later, or never! Sure, you don't take the same offense, but does that make this a pure numbers game instead of making it count? So, am I suppose to email 500 people a week so that I can get one to respond and take it to the next level, or do I just pick and choose and get lucky? Maybe's its too early to know. Where's the tutorial on how to handle internet meet and greets AdultFriendFinder? All I see are trainings on how to "Do Sex Good" and "Like Toys?"

Guess the last question on my mind, while I stare at this horrible webcam picture of myself, is how much people focus on this. I'm a good looking guy, I've always had attractive girlfriends, yet I'm the least photogenic guy I've seen. So, since this site doesn't revolve around what people look like in person, do I get passed up? Or, do I get passed up because I don't have a glamour shot of my twig and berries?

Who knows. I'm hoping in a month or two I'll be so happy with this place that my blog will have to see the trash bin.

Blogging is where it's at!

It is a great way to start up a dialog with people. It takes a lot of time, and if you're a guy, you're one of hundreds emailing these women... so doing something that makes you stand out (blogging, joining one of the groups, the chatrooms, etc) helps you get your profile read.

I've met lots of people, but it takes time.

Supply and demand.

As in the real world, You have to be at the right place, at the right time.
Look at it from the womens' view, they email you and you decide whether or not to recipicate, thus being just like them. SHUFFLE, shuffle, SHufFLE.
