Online dating. A single sentence that can strike fear and bring back horror stories into any single person. I have stories from beyond the internet and I never went out with anybody I met from there. Online dating. Where everybody goes to meet their true soul mate.
Online dating aka “Hey girl, I’ve messaged you twice now..so uh, like when are we going to hook up?” This has been MY experience with the world of dating online. Or better yet when you’re kind of interested in a guy or gal and then like a magic trick *poof* they are gone. Like a dream you want to remember but rather quickly fades.
My personal favorite has been when a guy will send me a message with the general messages going something like this; “Hey.” Or “Hey beautiful” Or my personal favorite “You’re beautiful, why are you single?”
First, I would like to point out if I knew why I was actually single I probably would not be on a dating site trying to find hope that Juneau has some descent type of dating pool.
Lord knows the guys I do see around town, or at work are either married or in a relationship. Or possibly even gay. Yes, just my luck.
So why am I single? I wish I knew. I always figured something was maybe kinda wrong with me. It’s not like I have a hundred guys beating down my door wanting to take ME out on a date or trying to get MY number.
And it isn’t even that I think I am ugly I have just never been ” That girl .” I’ve always wondered what being that girl would be like. Or how some girls can dump their boyfriends and a day later have another boyfriend? Like do you have a list of guys waiting to date you or some shit? Oy.
What happened to true gentlemen? To treating women with kindness and respect? If you don’t even know my first name, where I grew up or my favorite flavor of ice cream; you sure as hell have no right to be talking dirty to me. We aren’t in a relationship. No I do not want to see your dick, thank you very much. And no I will not be engaging in anymore of this conversation you rude pig.
Let’s paint the picture ..
You are going on about your day when your phone vibrates a couple of times. “Oh hey I am popular today.” You think as you quickly check your phone. I mean you are after all single and it’s not like you have a life aside from your imaginary friend Bob (double points if you get this joke) and trying to pretend you have a life on Facebook. *Yes, I went there*
Captain America 420- has sent you 3 new messages.
“Seriously Captain America 420?” You say to yourself as you check out his profile and shove another bite of rocky road into your mouth.
So as you scroll through his 20 pictures it comes to your attention he does not appear to be your type. You still look at the messages though.
Captain America 420- “Hey..”
Captain America 420-” You’re like really pretty…”
Captain America 420-“so why are you single? Also are you like 420 friendly? ” I just LOVE when they ask me that. Don’t you?
Not that this guy’s screen name didn’t scream that to start with. Also ‘Captain America 420’ WTF[wpsr_socialbts]??? Though you tell yourself be nice and you respond back. Grrr.
Kittens&Rainbows87-“Hey, how’s it going? It doesn’t bother me, but no I don’t smoke anymore.” (This is my actual response to this.)
Captain America 420-” awww sux. So when you wanna meet?”
I’m sorry but what the flying fuck dude? This, this is when your dumb ass gets ignored and goes into desperate and slight creeper status.
There was a dude I was talking to on a popular dating app, and since I live in a small town when people ask where I work at, you’re eventually going to see me. So I told this guy and I get a message from him on the dating app. He saw me at work. Didn’t say hi to me or anything.
Ok, kinda creepy but I responded with a joking “UT oh”.
Didn’t hear from him til a day or so later. Three days if I remember correctly and his message was something along the lines of ” I was walking next to you today.”
This ladies goes into big time creeper status. Code RED! I repeat code RED!!!!!
I deleted him and the app. Bye Tinder. Bye.
Also, when you see people who you work with on said dating apps it is kind of weird also.
I am glad I’m single. This world of online dating is scary and creepy. I believe the word they have for a lot of guys coming off of online dating is #fuckboys.
Must do more research into this. I am sure I have dealt with them myself.
