Online dating scares
I spoke to a few friends about their experiences with online dating websites.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.Continuing to be horrible did not dissuade any of them.Also, be sure to meet in a public place and to stay in a public place. Finally, don’t give out personal information – your phone number, email address, or even full name – right away.If you’re going alone, be sure to tell a friend where you’re going and what you’ll be doing. If you really want to talk on the phone with someone, consider getting a Google voice number Dating has gone digital.It’s no surprise that I received nearly twice as many messages on Plenty of Fish than Ok Cupid and Casual Kiss combined.In total, I received 34 messages, all of which were very nice.
497 people said that they wanted to meet me on Po F’s Meet Me feature.
Despite Casual Kiss being kind of scammy, with only 3000 monthly visitors, I decided to give it a try all the same – and I wasn’t entirely disappointed.
