The Dating Game?

Hello,

I’m writing another blog about my experience with the biggest, free dating and most popular web site that I don’t care to name!

To see what competition there was, I decided to pretend I was a man. What I noticed, was that most of the blonde girls had many men listing them as their favourites in their profile, especially if they showed a lot of skin. I wondered why a woman had to show herself off in such a vulgar position and state that she can cook turkey too! How are we to gain respect as women if we allow ourselves to be manipulated and demean ourselves out of desperation?

 

What I learned was that most of the men on this site like body parts, vulgar positions, kitchen servitude and street walker outfits.

  1. Hear, hear!

    There’s never been anything quite like the internet for letting us go undercover to experience life from the guys’ eyes. I’m always shocked by the women whose profile pictures make them look like total porn stars…

    I wanna say that it sounds unfair to the guys and that hey, the guys I know aren’t like that. Then again, you can seek something totally different on the net than you would in your Clark-Kent-life (it is the place to go to get NSA action, right?) and maybe all my dude friends have secret profiles that are just like that. Maybe all my girl friends do, too. Hmmm.

  2. I did some online dating last year and it was both fun and disheartening. Like all online experiences the anonymity of the internet can bring out the worst in people -some men admitted to me that they were addicted to the constant picking up and influx of new women. It’s a game to many people, like going to a club but without the live rejection factor that most guys dread. I did meet some great guys too but overall, I found that like any meat-market bar, people just want the pictures of you. And as for the women posing in bikinis and such, I think it’s fairly obvious they are desperate for some kind of validation -however, it won’t be fulfilled for very long until the dude finds a newer, blonder member to instant message. I think if you continue to online date you probably should try to not think of it as ‘competition’ unless that’s what you’re into. I know a few men and women who have found people they love very much online and none of them spent hours photoshopping cleavage. 😀

  3. You were perhaps expecting a little too much.
