This is why I can’t be bothered with online dating anymore. First, this jizz bag sends me an email and doesn’t even have any photos on his profile that show his face. Then he follows up his first irritating email with another one as though he was entitled to a response despite making zero effort.
Then there’s this:
He’s just being honest, folks! And the worst part is that his (one!) picture was relatively decent. You all know what I’m talking about: you get an email from someone and they look appealing and not like some basement dwelling jar head or shut in. You get a little excited thinking maybe this person isn’t a total loser.
Okay. Maybe this site isn’t bad after all. Let’s just take a look at that profile and….
Look, I love a man who knows his way around a vagina. I really do. I’m not offended at his “honesty”, I’m bored by all the cliche nonsense people say in these profiles. And not just “I work hard and play hard stuff”. I’m talking about all the people who have infiltrated these sites talking about how they’re looking for “one special lady” or their “one true love.”
OKCupid has always been on the sketchy side, but that site has taken a gigantic turn for the worst in the past year. Am I the only one noticing how fewer and fewer new profiles appear when you do a search for people new within the last week? I can sometimes go a couple of days without seeing any new members. That never used to happen.
And what about the absolute dearth of users actually filling out their profiles anymore? Or how it seems like the only people using these platforms all live in the suburbs?
The thing I hate most about this transition from reasonably effective dating site to Losers on Parade is that it’s turned me into the very thing I hate: a grouchy, bitchy dating blogger.
I can not be the only person picking up on the general malaise people are feeling in regards to these sites and apps, can I?
