I spoke to a few friends about their experiences with online dating websites.
One friend brought up a message where a man had told her that because she was a ‘woman of size’, she ‘must suck good ****’. Others in the past have conducted similar experiments, setting up fake accounts on free dating websites and recording the messages they received.
First off, telling a woman about what you would like to do to her sexually without any prompting is not a compliment.
It’s creepy, and in some instances really scary – not a turn-on by any means. If you see a picture of a woman you like, take the time to read her profile. When messaging a woman without bothering to learn about her through her profile, it may come across as you not caring about her as a person – no one wants that. If you’re interested in something casual, tell her or put it in your profile.
Cracked’s Alli Reed set up ‘the worst online dating profile ever’ and still received heaps of messages from men who wanted only to hook up with the terrible woman she had created.
Continuing to be horrible did not dissuade any of them.When going to meet someone in person, it helps to suggest you both bring along a friend.This may help relieve the anxiety of the other person, plus it’s a safeguard for you both in case something happens.The messages were all nice, although one user messaged me three times.Plentyof Fish is perhaps the most popular online dating sites out there, with an estimated 6 million pageviews a month and 76 million users (a little less than the entire population of Turkey).As I was serious about finding someone, I uploaded a lot of pictures of myself, had a very thorough profile, and received a lot of attention. Eventually, it got to be too much and I closed my profile.
