If you’re curious what turned me off to online dating. . .besides over a decade of failure. . . I would point to “Ben.”:
This profile nicely sums up what I hate about online dating:
THIS KIND OF MAN
Surely there’s some misogyny going on here, what with him calling women “slut faces.”
I just realized that I’m no longer surprised when I come across profiles like these and that it’s time to get off dating apps.
I’ll just have to put my efforts elsewhere and not linger too long thinking about how much time I wasted on online dating apps.
I did meet The Swede and Big Joe.
And Nate – all who have become good friends.
So obviously there are some decent people using these apps.
But in my estimation, making three friends over 15 years of online dating doesn’t constitute a great success rate.
Out with the old, in with the new.
These are all great ways to get out and mingle with good people who aren’t going to call you “slut face” before they’ve even met you.
