Dating site weirdos
The first type offers no profile picture or info, but the user will send you messages saying that he is married and seeking “discretion.”I think the “D” word you are looking for, sir, is “divorce.” You are seeking a “divorce.” The second type tends to have a faceless male torso or a pair of furry handcuffs as the profile picture.These gentlemen are looking for what I think they think is BDSM-style sex, but in reality, their intentions are questionably safe. Their messages invariably commence with pleasantries (“Hi”) but get serious quickly (“I can tell you need a strong hand to guide you, baby girl.I’m going to make it hurt until you beg Daddy for mercy”). Well, there’s a time and a place for everything, and the place for this is Fet Life, not Ok Cupid.At some point in the exhausting message exchanging process, you will find yourself breathing a sigh of relief when you somehow stumble upon a man with a working knowledge of the English language, who actually seems somewhat interesting, relatable and respectful.For me (in NYC), they tend to be located in either Long Island or Jersey, but they seem to be under the impression that the distance won’t matter once you meet their sweet abs.And you will, indeed, get a look at their sweet abs because more often than not, their profile pics are shots of them shirtless at the gym, one hand pointing at their tan abs, the other holding the ostentatious gold chain around their necks.As a result, people who turned to their desktops – (yes, this was back in the ice age of big hardware) – were genuinely interested in finding a relationship, however long or short term that might be.I personally view this deluge of flakes as the single biggest threat to people taking this whole industry seriously – and while I write the following with a light heart and (hopefully) carefree tone – keep yourself in check next time you come across these monsters. Genus: Indeniabilitas Drivesmethefuckcraziensis Description/Habitat: You connect. (S)he looks cool, well-intentioned, and states that (s)he “find[s] this whole thing soooo awkward…” written throughout their profile.
But recently I got back “on the market,” and reentered this crazy/fun/slightly-exhausting world again.
Also, please join the rest of the literate population and expend the energy to type out 'you' and 'to.'”If you stick with OKC long enough, you'll come across gentlemen who call themselves “polyamorous.” They say this means that they “discovered a long time ago that monogamy is oppressive and just not for them, so my partner and I are free to 'explore' the boundaries of our relationship without judgment.”But what I hear from that is “I’ve decided I don’t want to be monogamous any longer, but my live-in girlfriend doesn’t know I feel this way and she has no idea that I created this profile and wouldn’t be ok with me spending half my day actively pursuing other women on the Internet instead of walking our schnauzers.”I will say this about these junior Anthony Wieners — they can be very charismatic, so much so that they can make you think you are wound too tightly, but that moment of self-doubt will pass and you’ll realize these guys are the delusional ones for thinking that you’d somehow be cool dating a guy who already has a mortgage and tiny dogs with someone else. Try being honest with yourself, your partner and then the Internet — in that order.
The faceless profiles fall into one of two categories, and it’s hard to say which is scarier for the future of society.
You fill out the self-describing essays with care and a bit of whimsy with the hope that maybe, just maybe, “the one” is also on OKC and is taking the same care in selecting the same quirky descriptors. To speed things along in your screening process, I’ve drafted a handy list of the five types of creeps you will have to pick through before you find true love — or at least a respectable dinner date. These guys are not disrespectful or rude but are actually sincere and well intentioned.
But, they are probably also underage, live miles away from you (and any other metropolitan area), most likely in their mother’s basement.
