Online Dating Frustrations


So I’ve tried the online dating thing. And I’ve come across the common problems : too short….too aggressive….too toothless (<—yes, you’d be surprised). But I think the most frustrating one is : receiving messages from men that I know in real life!

Seriously life? Can I catch a break? *holds out baseball glove and catches a 90 mph gust of nothingness* -_-

I mean, if I wanted to date any of the men that I know, I wouldn’t be online. Your messaging me on a dating site does NOT change the fact that I don’t too much like you. And no amount of “Oh wow! You’re on here too?” or “Since we’re both looking, let’s go out!”, is going to change that! I do not like you. I would not like you here or there. I would not like you anywhere. I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them. Sam-I-am.

So if you happen to come across my profile on a dating site, just leave me be. Take your green eggs and ham and feed them to some other unsuspecting fool. Oh, and while I’m at it, don’t talk to me in real life either -_- .

I don’t like you.

    I’ve found that a reply like “You’re a great guy/girl, but I’m looking for something quite specific and it just isn’t you. Sorry.” can work. But the hardest part isn’t telling someone you don’t like them or don’t think they’re right for you, it’s the question afterwards: “Why?” Answering that is so tricky!

      I’ll have to try that one out! And yes, answering the “why” question is a difficult task lol.

    I’ve been doing online dating for over a year now. I honestly think it’s a lot of fun, but I’ve had people that I know in real life message me on the dating sites or on facebook and say they saw me on the site.

    I think that if someone from my real life wants to go on a date with me, they should just have the confidence to ask if they realize I’m single. And if they aren’t that ballsy then they will never make it through a relationship with me.

      I totally agree! If a guy can’t ask me out in person, then we definitely would not work.
