Dating site handicapped men seeking women
So I’m a total novice when it comes to dating online, really dating at all.
But I deleted them after about a week, because I could never bring myself to actually go on dates with anyone who swiped right.
It’s also worth noting that on all three sites, there was really no way to create a geographical limit.
A couple days into my quest for love, I was getting messages from some people who lived five miles away, and others who lived in Germany and Japan.
In addition, it wouldn’t let me set my preference to men, so despite being straight, I kept getting notifications about women I might be interested in as well.
I attempted to reach out to the sites as well to see if they could offer insight into success stories or the number of users, but their representatives said they couldn’t disclose any data about their users. Since I find the notion of paying for online dates a little too similar to paying for sex, I gave up on the site.All in all, I probably spoke to about 25 different people.I realized how lonely they must be, and that this attempt to connect with people online was somewhat of a last resort for a lot of them …We would have conversations about hobbies, school, the weather, and weekend plans, but no one wanted to exchange phone numbers, or set up a place to meet.Typically, if I asked for either a number or a real date, I was met with radio silence and never heard from the guy again.
