Online dating is an effortless way for women to meet good, ordinario guys, right?
Or so Redditor OKCThrowaway22221 thought when he determined to pose spil a woman on OKCupid and see what happened. Persuaded that women had it effortless when it came to finding online romance, he wasgoed ready for an evening of joy.
Originally, OKCThrowaway22221 wasgoed pleasurably astonished at the number of messages he received minutes after creating his profile — but things got weird quickly:
At very first I thought it wasgoed joy, I thought it wasgoed weird but maybe I would mess with them or something and weirdo them out and tell them I wasgoed a dude or something, but spil more and more messages came (either replies or fresh ones I had about Ten different guys message mij within Two hours) the nature of them continued to get more and more irritating. Guys were full-on spamming my inbox with numerous messages before I could reply to even one asking why I wasn’t responding and what wasgoed wrong. Guys would become hostile when I told them I wasn’t interested ter NSA hook-up, or guys that had embarked común and nice quickly turned the conversation into something explicitly sexual ter nature. Seemingly nice dudes te fairly esteemed careers asking to meet up ter 24 hours and send them naked pics of myself despite numerous times telling them that I didn’t want to.
Being on the receiving end of this behavior — and coming to understand that his practice wasgoed far from unusual — eventually proved too much for OKCThrowaway22221:
I would be lounging if I said it didn’t get to mij. I thought it would be some joy thing, something where I would do it and worse case script say “lol I wasgoed a man I trolle you lulz”etc. but within a Two hour span it got mij truly down and I wasgoed feeling truly awkward with everything. I figured I would get some weird messages here and there, but what I got wasgoed an onslaught of people who were, within minutes of telling hello, telling things that made mij spil a dude who spends most of his time on 4chan uneasy. I ended up deleting my profile at the end of Two hours and zuigeling of went about the surplus of my night with a very bad taste ter my mouth.
Few would argue that online dating is inherently bad. It can be a fantastic way to meet fresh vrouwen and get to know your own preferences. But the number of dudes who consider online dating sites an suitable place to send exceptionally explicit messages or otherwise harass female users can’t be overlooked.
This Redditor concluded, “I came away thinking that women have it so much tighter than guys do when it comes to that kleintje of stuff.”
