What about the people who don’t even read your profile and just comment on your photos? Call me.” And what about the Cut-and-Paste-dater, the one who sends the same email to 100 people, hoping a few will respond? Yep, a lot of creeps and people who never grew up are dating online. As annoying as those people can be, they don’t represent the entire population.So please don’t quit online dating because of a few rotten tomatoes., like, “a guy told me he was looking for a girlfriend by next year so he’d have someone to split rent with.” Then there was the charmer who told his date about the time he “got wasted, peed and mopped it up with his clothes, and then wore them.” Um, yeah., we’d like to assume you know better than to make mistakes like these.A good rule of thumb: if you aren’t available for a date within 7 days of sending the message, don’t send it.
As a single gal in Los Angeles who has been online dating for over 10 years, I have earned my stripes as a dating expert and a dating drama queen.
A lot of you are self-conscious about the fact that you’re on a dating site.
But obviously if she’s on the site too, you’re both in the same boat.
—Have you stopped dating online because it didn’t work?
Maybe you’re currently dating online, but you’re sick and tired of illiterate profiles and messages.
