I'm somewhat popular, in a particular set of folks.
They are the 'pay for play' crowd. My dad suggested I check out 'The Ladders' (which I'd considered). I've not paid. They've sent me lots of 'good leads' that pan out into a possibility of 'signing up'.
I joined quite a few of the other sites (just to check them out) of the same sort, but with girls.
I joined 'Ashley Madison', 'eHarmony', 'FastCupid' (Village Voice/LA Weekly personals), 'XXXBlackBook' and OKCupid.
OKCupid doesn't charge anything, and it's the best site in a lot of ways, and they are constantly sending me 'suggestions' but never any mail indicating that I've got anything special going on.
The ones that charge always seem to send me something every week or so that indicates that one of their members (or jobs) finds me personally interesting (terribly curious as I've barely got any info listed at any of them).
I actually paid at FastCupid at the outset to see what a real dating system was like.
It has better video chat than OKCupid, but other than that, nada. So I let the membership lapse.
