You all know that I'm a veteran when it comes to online dating. I've been at it for the last 3 years or so. Many think OD is shady and/or dangerous, but it's really not. You just have to use common sense! Personally, I think it's a great way to meet new people. A lot of girls seem to think it's embarrassing, but I see no shame in it at all. We're all busy people, and it's hard to meet people outside of our regular circles.
Online dating's an efficient way to link up with someone who has similar interests. I've met a handful of great people on OKC so rest assured, not everyone on there is douchey, crazy or [insert negative adjective of your choice]. With that said, I'm going to talk about 8 different dudes I've encountered on OKC because I got flooded with requests after my last post, "Online Dating Pet Peeves." I hope you guys enjoy this because I spent a long time sifting through my inbox to find y'all examples, ha. Anyways, without further ado, let's start with...
1. The Talker
The Talker just doesn't get it. He believes that women ignore him because they're interested. Hm. He views silence as an invitation or even a challenge. When the other party doesn't respond, it simply encourages him, and he'll message you over, and over....and over again. I guess 15th times a charm?
2. The Copy-and-Paster
The Copy-and-Paster spends hours drafting a "charming" message and then sends it...to every girl he finds on the internet. He thinks he's putting his best foot forward, but... nope. He's coming off like a total d-bag. I mean, "a nice butt for a white guy?" Ew.
To make matters worse, he forgot that he contacted me and sent me the SAME message weeks later... addressed to the WRONG username, ha.
|Hm, maybe I should've forwarded this to yorkieluv...da fuq?|
3. The Giver
The giver wants to wait on you hand and foot....literally.
|...so like, you would be my butler? Would you do my laundry and shit, too?|
4. The Catfish
The Catfish is a pathological liar who will feed you bullshit about his job, name, age, blah blah blah - you get the point! He'll sometimes even post fake photos. The dude below had Craig Craigery (the famous YouTube star) as his profile pic. I recognized him IMMEDIATELY and decided to have some fun, ha.
|Aw, how sweet of you Craig Craigery. If only you were straight...and real for that matter, ha.|
|Hm, so the good looking ones get spoiled, huh? I guess that's why you chose to post a shot of CC, one of the most beautiful YT stars I've ever seen. Nicely played, asshat. Next time, choose someone who's not FAMOUS!|
|Shortly after, he deleted his profile.|
5. The (Frightening) Romantic
The Romantic thinks he's being lovable when in reality, he's actually terrifying. Maybe I'm just a jerk, but when I got this, my first thought was, "what the f**?" I don't know. Take a read and tell me what you think. Is this message sweet or scary?
6. The "Foreigner"
The "Foreigner" is never foreign. In fact, he's most likely a douchey frat boy who thinks messaging you in french is sexy and sophisticated. Rawr. Stick to what you know fella. You're better off working on your keg stands and beer pong skills. Zing.
|You're an idiot. Just sayin' :)|
7. The Smooth Operator
The Smooth Operator thinks his pick-up lines are hella clever. I'm sorry, but PUAs would be disappointed with your pathetic one-liners. I recommend reviewing "The Game" ASAP before approaching your next potential love interest.
8. The Horndog
The horndog doesn't play around. He's thirsty, and he wants you to know it!
|This playa means bidness!|
|...is this fool touching his junk? Ew.|
|Has that ever worked for you, bro?|
|Ew. What does that even mean?|
|So when I wrote, "do not send me hook up messages," you needed clarification? SMH.|
Ha. I hope you guys got a kick out of these. Have you encountered any of these dudes on OKC or other dating sites?
