Hi there, lately over three months i been rping my groups as i barely been getting any one on one roleplays since i think a few months or less. So far i have two currently that is active and the only other things i have is two group oocs, and the rest is four and a half (if i include some of the first page not all) pages of dead roleplays.

I tried to ask someone before to look over/help me improve my intrest checks but lately they havent gotten back to messaging me >~<
So i am asking what can i do to help increase my chances of getting one on one roleplays?

You can try responding to the one on one recruitment threads yourself if you're only waiting for people to look at your own.

I have no search thread of my own. At all. But had no shortage in 1x1 roleplays and I only do those.
Making an awesome interest check is good but responding to other people interest checks worked a lot better for me. So if that's the 1x1 roleplays you seek, try to be more proactive as well rather than wait for someone to contact you. Unless you're looking for extremely specific thing which no one will likely post about unless you do it, then it's probably best to at least have a thread up.
But technically, you don't even need a search thread to find 1x1 roleplays as long as you know what you want and look for those things in others.

I been searching around but no one really wants platonic or they require literate writers. I can try to search more though

I guess my only choice is to keep looking. Lately my one on one intrest checks only get a like or a heart

'literate writers' is subjective. Some people call literate everything that is not a one-liner.
And sometimes people don't list every single thing they would rp. So if you like someone's search thread and think you might click, can suggest your own plots too (i.e. platonic). In worst case they say no.
You'll never know until you try.

give 'em hell, kid.
finding platonic 1x1 rps is undeniably difficult at times.

i should know, because i only do platonic and i've come across many an intriguing thread or plot only to read "romance required" and have to turn back. it's frustrating, that's for certain. can't say much about literate as i've never done a roleplay with replies shorter than a paragraph or two per post, but they're out there too.

when looking for potential partners, you can always search using the 'platonic' tag... it's not a sure fix, but it definitely helps filter out those who have their hearts set on romance.

Bruh... I don't mean this in any kind of negative or condescending way but: be glad you have the two current RPs, and at least an active dialogue with the other two. From poking around and trying to help others advert (as well as my own searches), this site doesn't seem to bite on a lot of ideas. Or GMs poof, or the other players go silent, etc. Just sayin'... be thankful you got what you got. ;-)

I've only been here a month, but this is my impression so far.

All these are in the first two pages of the 1x1 searches:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7

And these are the RPs in the groups section. again, just the first two pages
1
2
3
4
5

Now, granted, I didn't go and read the entirety of every description, or message any of the OPs. But all of these are either cartoon series based or are Marvel/DC based. There was a Lucifer one, but it was M/M, so I obvs didnt list it.

Good Luck ;-)

Dunno what to tell ya, then. That's way, WAY more options than I can ever find for what I'm looking for. People aren't often even in the same ballpark. Superhero/comic book canon RPs are really common, though. I'd surmise them to be like one of the most common genres, tbh. I see them on pretty much any and every RP site that I've been on. So it's really only a matter of waiting, and something is sure to pop up.
