When I was living in southern Oregon, the dating scene at my college wasn’t that great.
A lot of people, including me, turned to online dating, and Ok Cupid was all the rage.
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).
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.Despite Casual Kiss being kind of scammy, with only 3000 monthly visitors, I decided to give it a try all the same – and I wasn’t entirely disappointed.I joined February 4th, around 7 AM, and received a total of one vote, two winks, and six messages.It’s no surprise that I received nearly twice as many messages on Plenty of Fish than Ok Cupid and Casual Kiss combined.In total, I received 34 messages, all of which were very nice.
He came away with the realization that women have it much, much harder on these sites: I figured I would get some weird messages here and there, but what I got was an onslaught of people who were, within minutes of saying hello, saying things that made me as a dude who spends most of his time on 4chan uneasy.
