So I (as a guy) have found online dating to be a pretty huge joke. There are a lot of reasons. Women (traditionally) are used to being pursued, so typically search for what they want far less and get flooded with messages. Guys are expected to craft amazing awe inspiring messages (that don't even get read over half the time), but on the rare occassion a woman sends me a message it's generally "hi" or "how's it going". Now we have the filters on every pic (sorry most humans aren't into deer, for dating anyways) or sunglasses. I'm not going to add everything, my point is... while the grass is always greener, I know women have their side of it and it's not perfect either, but what is it that makes a woman actually search and send messages. What is it that makes them read messages, if the one pic on the message isn't Ryan Reynolds (or whoever you are into) is that just an immediate delete without reading? I'm curious to hear women's perspective not some article online. Thanks for reading my first question on here!
