I recently posted my question about what women do that is annoying on dating sites and received some terrific responses. So now I get to share my take on what men do that drives me bananas.
That's the worst message I get. I absolutely hate this. It probably accounts for 80% of my messages. Either that or just a WYD. Or you're hot. If you aren't going to put some thought into it, don't bother.
On the flip side, I don't want to read a book. Especially one that reads like a poorly written romance novel.
Then there are the guys that just want to show you their dick or see my tits. There are other places for that. Not dating sites.
Now I am told that it is quite annoying when women post their social media names or links however there is a reason for that. Almost every single conversation I find myself in results in the question "what's your Snap?" This is often the first or second thing we discuss. Because of this I often drop my links just so I don't get a ton of messages asking for it. It's not advertisement. It's inbox cleanup.
The other complaint I see is that women never initiate or put in effort. I for one know I can be better at this and I do try. However it is not always well received. Due to the many scammers and spammers a lot of men don't take me seriously when I message first. Most never respond at all. I also cannot begin to express to you just how flooded a womans inbox can get. With some apps I get flooded with messages before even adding a picture or bio. Dozens of men per hour just excited by the generic cartoon woman face I guess. Once the pics go up my inbox goes straight to 99+. And I'm no dime either.
As far as ghosting, again guilty here. I try not to but I do often lose touch with men I am speaking to. I will say though if we make it to the point of exchanging phone numbers, I won't quit you without an explanation first.
On a positive note, I have had some good relationships, great hookups and made some wonderful friends. All because of dating sites.
