First of all, I know, I'm only 20 years old. I have been getting weird reactions when I've told people I've joined a dating site before. But the thing is that I wanted a relationship. I wanted to meet someone to share my life with. It's up and downs. Everything. And I wasn't looking for the drama that often comes with trying to find someone; I wanted a relationship and nothing indecisive like I've encounterd before. So I thought joining one would be a great idea.
Everyone goes there for the same reason. Or well, most people does. At first I didn't really get any results but it's really had its ups and downs being on a dating site. But I'm going to make a list of the things I've encountered the most on dating sites.
1. Those who blame everyone else
At the dating site were I am a member, we have a section where you can post a status about how your date(s) has been going or just have your day have been. Or overall something that you just wish to say; like Facebook status sort of tbh. And the only thing I see at that section is someone blaming everyone else for their lack of success with finding a partner. Do I even have to begin explaining that? And the worse part is that most of the people who sound like that haven't even tried putting any effort into it themselves and have just expected everyone else to come rushing to them.
2. The material/wanna be rich people
The people who act like they are gods among us and writes the most stuck up descriptions of themselves at their dating profil. I understand if you want to look the best and if you're trying to meet someone. But if you have a personality that demands "a hairless body, remember ladies, hair only belongs on the head ;)" then you need to get out of my face and check your facts. Seriously. These are usualy the people who have pictures of themselves sitting in a fancy car or leaning up against on at their profiles. And they often don't even have a picture of themselves; just material stuff like their phones or their gold watches, or their latest car. These often also are the people who make sure to note out that they earn a lot of cash and often also note out that their search for a partner hasn't gone well cause everyone they met just want their money :( At least that's what they say.
3. The unintentional creep
The people who mean well but instead come of as total creeps. I at first thought they were really creepy but I can't help but feel bad for them in a way. They meant well but it instead just became very wrong.
4. The actual creep
I've encounterd people asking me if I can send them pictures of my feet and those who want me to join their gangbang. *Shivers* I dont think I need to explain this any further. These are people who are creepy and aren't afraid to show it.
5. The ones who use someone else's pictures
I haven't encountered this as often as I thought I would. I think this is so often spoken about that I almost expected to encounter this daily. But the two times I did encounter it was just sad and annoying. The first time was frightening; the guy snapchatted me dozen of pictures that seemed real, and then when he sent me a selfie I texted him "what the actual fuck?" and never heard of him again. I dont know what he expected really when he sent me pictures of someone else and then when I really saw his real face? Well...the second time was just saddening. Okay, the guy didn't really look the best. But using the profil picture of a really famous male actor wasn't the best choice to try to cover it up...
As I said, the list could be made longer. And if this one gets popular I will gladly make another one with my encounters. Have a nice day!
