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.
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.
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.
I haven’t used dating sites to try to find men to date ever since.
It is estimated that there are about 30 million total users, with roughly 1 million unique users logging in every day.
It goes without saying that Ok Cupid has one of the better reputations of more popular free dating websites for having a wide variety of quality users.
Neither is asking for, or offering to send, nudes (unless they were not discussed first). Insulting other women, while looking for a woman, won’t help your chances of finding someone. Don’t be this guy and send this as your first message to a woman.
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.
I never replied to any of the messages, however there were a few men who messaged me twice despite that, in an attempt to get a response.
497 people said that they wanted to meet me on Po F’s Meet Me feature.
Of course, there’s no one-size-fits-all, but their number one criteron make sense to us: an emphasis in profile questions on mutual interests and honest self-representation over looks and sexual prowess.
