I keep giving guys a break. Perhaps the sparkling wit absent from their written correspondence will manifest in a real life interaction. Maybe they will look better in person than they do in their profile photos. I’m sure the 1-hour geographic distance will be inconsequential if we have chemistry.
Why do I force these issues? I don’t want to be so picky that I never find anyone. I do, however, refuse to compromise on what’s really important to me in a partner…so I only suffer illusions or delusions for a limited timeframe.
There are some guys that don’t deserve even a short break. Lately I’ve been feeling generally annoyed at bad or inappropriate profiles and photos. Swipe with me, click on profiles with me, and you’ll see what I mean. Fuel up first on some baked red snapper.
Examples from my dating files:
The word-less profile:
*A picture of an armed soldier sandwiched between two photos of a guitar-filled wall
*A “shadow” photo – literally a picture of someone’s shadow.
Sapiosexual ad nauseum:
Mocking education and career:
*Graduated from University of Hard Knocks
*Works at: Director of Everything
Consider joining a religion-focused dating site:
“I am a man with a fear of God….All I want in a woman is someone….who…has a fear of God too.”
*Ten photos- nine of them are of a woman
Silly for silly’s sake:
A man with a farm or wild animal
*Cuddling with a tiger, rubbing noses with a llama (love animals just not these pictures)
*His profile reads like a resume or a biography by a historian and sometimes so does his first message:
Extra credit for cleanliness and good housekeeping
So many more examples…Sigh. Okay, end of rant.
Until next week, happy dating or not dating.
