Online dating pet peeves aib des moines online dating
Another annoying statement, one that short guys such as myself face on a regular basis is, "if you're shorter than me, swipe left." Personally, I don't care about height.
Dating a girl taller than me will not hurt my pride.
A list of hobbies, maybe a mention of their job, and a few characteristics of what they’re looking for. The worst is someone starting a conversation with you by sharing the usual pleasantries, and then you say: “So, what interested you in me?
There’s a lot of “fun-loving, down-to-earth, love the outdoors” kinda stuff. Your profile isn’t very helpful.” And then you get a few “Oh, I like that you seem so smart and mature and you like sci-fi and your pics are great. I’m an open book.” Dude, you’re not the latest featured AMA on Reddit. When I read a profile, I like to have a general sense of whether or not we’ll get along, so we don’t have to both waste our time if we don’t fit.
“Ask me anything” is putting the labour on MY shoulders to find out whether we’re compatible.
You’re just sitting there, waiting for the questions to come in.
I have lots of experience, and coming back after 9 years in a monogamous relationship, it wasn’t much different.
Now, sure, sometimes when the profile is better than the average, I can find something to ask you about.
But since you’re the one who approached me, you’re the one who should that spending my energy having a conversation with you is worth it. Don’t expect that simply because you’ve sent a lazy “hi, how are you? This isn’t “elevator at the office on Monday morning.” This is online dating, and you can get to learn a lot about me without even talking to me.
Speaking of bios, from my experiences using online dating sites (primarily Ok Cupid and Tinder), I have noticed some common trends.
To give some context, I am a straight male using these sites.
The only reason I am addressing this is because I have rather limited insight into what users with other sexual preferences face using dating apps and websites.
