No second date online dating
If he is willing to “date down”, then he can easily find a woman who will pursue him.
What I would like is a woman who will put in equal effort.
These women aren't obligated to go on a second date with you, however, I agree they should have messaged you back with a simple "Thanks for dinner, I had a good time but there just wasn't any spark for me. I've gone on dates where there wasn't much of a spark but have given it a second chance and felt absolutely nothing the second time around as well. It's not that women are necessarily looking for a perfect guy or a perfect date, if it's not there it's just not there, we can't be into everyone that's into us.
Good luck =)Much of what you say is obvious and true.
The "everything about him/the date has to be perfect" syndrome. If I had my pick from hundreds of women weekly who had to do all the work setting up the date while I just waited around, and who payed for my drinks/dinner/activity on the date I guess I'd expect perfection if I was going to give them a second date too.

They have a set list of "standards" and "expectations" and if all of them aren't met then it's "thanks for dinner! "Sonny, may be that you are just trying way too hard to try to "impress" ALL those teens/20 somethings... Usually backfires unless you are Clooney or Cruise.. As you mature you may become way more selective in just who you approach to "date", and if wise enough to make much better selectionswithout striving to always over-the-top try to "impress",eventually you may find that elusive mutual level of interest relationship, where she makes just as much if not more effort to focus on you and develop it further.
Easily identifiable by a guy who has spent anytime here and interacted with women on this site or others. When I have set up "meet and greets" they usually go pretty well unless the lady has misrepresented herself in some way.
I would say that, more often than not, I am the one who does not call for a second date.

Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. It is a woman's instinct to select a mate who will meet the challenge of impressing her and proving to her that he provide for her what will make her happy and meet her needs (not necessarily financial needs, more her emotional needs) before she accepts him as her mate and agrees to give him what he wants (typically sex).
