I hate myself online dating
Yes, I’m talking to you dark15672, latino, and 345,000 others. I realize that out in the real world, the first thing you say to a person is “hi”, but this ain’t the real world, honey. I’m just as lazy as the next guy, but when I can clearly tell that you’ve held down your finger, pressed copy, got to my message, held down your finger again for paste that’s pure laziness.
You have an entire profile’s worth of material to work from and all you can say is, “hi” (maybe a winky face next to it to make it even more genuine)?!? Shit, I’ve even been called Sheila these dudes are so lazy! This site is called “Plenty of Fish”, not “Plenty of Hoebags”. It’s not hard to hold down the smartphone-version-of-a-Shift-key.
I did try it when I was single and I was a touch scared of the weirdo’s that are out there and how confrontational, over familiar and downright creepy people can be when they instant message or email you. Jaysus if you want to find the largest cluster of deluded liars, check out online dating sites. Someone sees your photo and if you’re online, they IM you with an innuendo or send BS emails about how they are in love with you, want to meet you, or want to touch you, and all because they saw your picture and read your profile.
What I learned from carrying out an interview of a female and the interview of a male trying to dig into this intriguing subject was that using the Internet for dating is equally painful for men and for women, but for very different reasons.
