I haven’t used dating sites to try to find men to date ever since.
First off, telling a woman about what you would like to do to her sexually without any prompting is not a compliment.
I personally have had some experience with Ok Cupid before this experiment, which weren’t completely positive.
When I was living in southern Oregon, the dating scene at my college wasn’t that great.
One of the most notable of these is a reddit user who set up a fake profile and didn’t last two hours.
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.
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.
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.
It is estimated that there are about 30 million total users, with roughly 1 million unique users logging in every day.
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.
In fact, it’s not uncommon at all for women to be threatened for refusing to send nudes or insulted when they say they’re not interested in the man messaging them.
I spoke to a few friends about their experiences with online dating websites.
