Some female members of dating sites are kind enough to be honest that they are not really looking to meet anyone for any romantic purpose, and they are on that site because they are bored and/or have nothing to do. Look at an actual example below. It’s a very short profile that contains at least 7(!) signs that she is not looking for any type of dating, love or romance in her life, and to this woman – OkC serves the same purpose as Facebook and Instagram.
To help you know exactly what I mean, I provide brief commentary below as well
- “Explore” – i.e. I am bored. I am not “looking” and I don’t “want” to meet anyone. I am engaged in exploration without any specific purpose.
- “See what I am missing” – her purpose is sorta FOMO driven. She just want to window shop.
- “Open to all possibilities” – i.e. bored and lonely.
- “Like, swipe, and repeat” – admits to being addicted and jaded by the dating apps.
- “18-99” – anyone who is looking to date will have an age limit of who they are willing to talk to.
- “New friends” – yet another confirmation of boredom and loneliness.
- “No pressure” – she doesn’t expect anything and is not looking for anything and she wants you to be the same way.
A fan submitted a Tinder photo below apparently from the San Francisco area. First, try not to drool over the irresistible image. Then, read the text below carefully and pay special attention to the “dating coach” and “disappointment” parts. And try not to vomit at this unprecedented complete-out-of-touch-with-reality mess. You might stain a Tesla.
The service is based on the premise that people actually look at each and check each other out. But, they don’t. An opportunity cannot be missed if it isn’t recognized.
After a surprising number of requests to find a decent okc profile that will serve as, among other things, hope for those whose jaded ways got the better of them, I have uncovered a real jam. It wasn’t easy, but considering how great the female profile below is, it was well worth the effort. Let this sample serve as an antithesis of the cliche and the mediocre that pollutes the online dating world:
For the sake of fairness, I will now undertake the task of finding a worthy male profile, which promises to be quite challenging, considering how doll and unstimulating the local male population seems to be, once you strip them off their gadgets and pocket squares.
I don’t know who the author of the profile below is, but I can guarantee you that if you meet her, along with her impressive eloquence you will also get a female who is as pompous as she is argumentative, and who is otherwise a total pain in the ass.
There is a new way to meet even more lame and more pretentious people than you are naturally surrounded by in FiDi through a new app that combines the douche factor of LinkedIn and the superficial, lazy swiping idea of Tinder – BeLinked. Supposedly, it’s an app like Tinder but it is attached to your Linkedin Profile. You can anonymously swipe people in your industry left and right (not necessarily your connections) and get matched. If you thought you were profoundly tired of hearing the good old “So… what do you do?” cliche, imagine how stale and sodium free the first date conversations are going to be between the BeLinked drones. The biggest initial challenge on these dates will be to not let the vomit erupt as soon as you hear “So….. how do like this new app?” or even worse – going straight to discussing the only thing they most likely have in common – work – and boring each other death in under 20 minutes.
BTW, I propose a new name for this app – BeDouched.
Going Isis on a lobster is hardly flattering, to put it very mildly, let alone when the beheading of an animal is contemplated by a woman…
1. Lose the “career oriented”, “career focused”, “independent”, “ambitious” and alike testosterone induced adjectives from your profile. It doesn’t make you sound more attractive or desirable; it makes you sound scary. Not intimidating, but scary.
2. Remove those obnoxious rock-climbing, marathon running, soccer playing and alike pictures that suggest that you are likely to be lesbian.
3. Stop telling the world that you like to work hard and play hard. I assure you that this way overused cliche has never given any guy a boner.
