As a child of the Internet and confirmed weirdo, imagine my relief when they finally took that last bastion of in-person awkwardness -- dating -- to my laptop instead. I've been using one of the major dating sites, OkCupid, on and off for about five years now. While it has its perks, being a woman on a dating site means immersing yourself in a disgusting cesspool of exposed nerves, unfiltered testosterone, and daily propositions to engage in sex acts so horrifying, I hadn't even heard of them before, and I'm from the Internet.

I got the feeling that a lot of men on that site would message literally any woman who had a profile, but the optimist in me wanted to believe that there was a limit. Maybe there was a woman so awful, so toxic, so irredeemably unlikeable that no one would message her, or if they did, at least they would realize they never, ever wanted to meet her. So I made the OkCupid profile of the Worst Woman on Earth, hoping to prove that there exists an online dating profile so loathsome that no man would message it.

I was on this dating app and I hadn"t put my photo in there, so I got a lot of messages but everytime I send them my photo in chat they ghost me.

I registered on a dating site yesterday and set my interest to people between ages 20-28. You don"t want to know how many likes/messages I received from people over 40 ( occasionally 50 ). Just. Why do they do this. I"m 21 please fuck off

Such a misleading headline. Basically 2 FBI agents that were dating who worked on the Mueller investigation were removed after discovery of anti-trump messages. Investigators are reviewing over 10k in texts to determine the extent of anti-trump

Om why do you need a dating app for that i liter6get these messages on twotter and facebook I"m SVREKSNNDKD

When did Twitter become a dating sight or a pick up zone? So annoying getting personal messages from outright strangers who have followed me. Am I the only annoyed woman?

I feel like I could make an instagram for all the sexual harassment messages I get off dating websites. Don"t worry I give great comebacks.

Erase the messages, delete the numbers move on. You don’t have to forget them, but just accept that they aren’t that person anymore.
