POF vs. OkCupid

So I made an account on OkCupid 2 days ago to check it out and see how it compares to POF. So far,I’ve noticed that the guys on there aren’t NEARLY as attractive as the ones on POF. I wanted to give it a few days before I judged,but after scrolling through a few dozen profiles,I was only attracted to maybe one or two!

I’m not sure if this is just in my area or if that’s just the way things are. Also,I got about 100 msgs the first day I joined POF. I only got 2 the first day I joined OC.

I made the profile in hopes that maybe I’ll get some more stories to write about,but nothing so far. It’s been pretty dead tbh. I probably won’t be on there much longer if things continue this way.

Don’t do it, Guys

I’ve been on POF for a few months now, and I’ve noticed that some things that SHOULD be common sense apparently aren’t. Guys put all kinds of things on their dating profiles that turn girls away, and then they wonder why nobody ever responds to their messages. In some cases, it may be that they just aren’t attracted to you. In that case, some natural lighting and bangin’ photoshop might do the trick. If not, I don’t know what to tell ya.

The truth is that online dating is alot like window shopping. We scroll through tons of profiles, clicking “No,” I would not like to meet you, until we come across someone who catches our eye. This may not always be due to your level of attractiveness, though.

I remember messaging a guy once because one of his pictures made me laugh. He was trying to be funny, and it worked! Anyone who can make me laugh with a picture or their first message is worth giving a chance to in my book, regardless of their physical appearance.

So in this post, I’d like to start with the pictures, since listing everything you shouldn’t do in one post would make for a VERY long post….

So here are the picture that you should DEFINITELY NOT post on your dating profile:

1. Well fuck you too!
image

I don’t know why any guy would ever think that flicking girls off that you’re potentially trying to date is a good idea, but let me assure you, it’s not. You want us to answer your messages, yet your profile picture says “Fuck off.” And we’re the ones sending mixed signals…

2. Creepy shirtless caveman mathematician? I’d tap that.
image

This was definitely one of the creepiest pictures I have ever seen. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a legit profile, judging from the picture and the information that was on the profile, but nonetheless makes my point. Staring creepily into the camera is never a good idea. It makes us feel like you’re staring into our soul, and in case you were wondering, we’d like to keep our soul to ourselves. Thank you.

3. Say cheeeeese!!
image
Groups shots of you and your friends are cute,but not for your profile picture. We’re here to date you,not you and your friends. Also, if there’s a picture of all your friends,and then I go to your other pictures and I like your friend better, that should give me the right to message you and ask for his number. After all,you put him on a dating website. He should be up for grabs too! 😉

4. Guess what’s for dinner again?!
image

As I mentioned in my previous post,we don’t want to see you with tonight’s dinner. No girl is going to look at this picture and go “OMG he killed a (insert animal here)!! He must be a great hunter and will provide for my family. I must marry him!” No guys…..just no. You and 50 other guys like to go fishin, muddin,and huntin. Get a little more creative. We’re not in 6500 BC looking for a big man to kill prey for dinner.

5. I own a car.
image
Sometimes,it makes me wonder whether you guys are on there trying to impress men or women. I mean, you post a picture of your truck/car….or 2…or 3 pictures. You list your interests as fishing, muddin,and hunting. We don’t care! And to be quite honest,in some cases,I’d rather date your car than date you. Just a disclaimer: If your car looks better than you, it’s considered your competition. That’s one sexy son of a bitch,and you’re…well…not.

6. Smiling with my….niece.
image
Kids don’t belong on a dating profile unless they are your own. If I see a profile picture of you with a kid,I will automatically assume it’s yours. And when I see that your profile says you don’t have kids, then you’re giving off the wrong impression. Sure,we’d like to see that you like kids,but not on your profile picture. And I can only imagine how upset the mother would be if she found out her little girl was plastered on a dating website with her great uncle Harry.

7. Shirtless AND downward angle! We’ve got a double wammy here folks!
image
This guy hit 2 birds with one stone here. First of all, shirtless pics make you look like a douchebag jock. If you’re not going for that look,then don’t post half naked pictures of yourself. Especially if your body is BARELY a 5….just don’t do it. No,we don’t want to see your jelly rolls. Secondly, taking pictures from down below is not a flattering angle for anyone. It makes you look disproportionate and just highlights everything you don’t want highlighted. I see alot of guys doing this,especially with upclose pictures. No,we don’t want to see what’s up your nose,in case you were wondering.

Some advice? Take pictures from a straight on or even upward angle. Keep your clothes on. And would it kill you to smile?!

That’s all I have for you tonight guys. Hopefully you learned some things,and if you’re guilty of any of these pics,you should probably take them down. Just sayin.

I’d Smash

So as I was peacefully drifting off to sleep last night around 3am ( because I couldn’t sleep), my phone vibrated informing me of a new message from POF. I was curious, so I opened it up and inside was this wonderful message:

id Smash

Now, normally, I wouldn’t reply to this sort of message, but I thought it would make for a pretty entertaining post, so here’s the rest of the conversation:

I’d hit

why don’t you bring that talk to my house and (City) and hit then pretty lady

Sure, I’ll be right over.

haha yeah, if only you were telling the truth

And if only you weren’t

i swear if you came here I would lay it to you as much as you wanted im just not able to go to (My City)

Oh what a shame. I was hoping someone would “lay it to me” tonight.

yeah it is a shame because with that attitude, you need a good laying

I’m so glad you’ve looked into my laying schedule. I’ll be sure to pencil you in for next weekend.

haha im just joking don’t get your panties up in a wad pretty lady

Oh my panties are perfectly fine. Thanks for checking though.

your welcome, so how does a girl as gorgeous as yourself end up being single

Because of guys like you.

ohhhhhh burn, someones laying on the wrong side of the bed

I didn’t bother replying after that. It was 3:22am and I was tired. I don’t know what the point of all that was, but I guess I can’t expect much more than that at 3 in the morning. My hope in online dating is slowly deteriorating. And so is my hope for mankind. I mean seriously. No punctuation. No common sense. Is this what our generation has come to? Telling random girls on a dating website that you’d “smash?” So sad.

POF Pictures

This is dedicated to all the weird profile pictures I see daily on Plenty of Fish. I mean,why guys? Why?! Keep your dead catch, booze, and shirtless torso to yourself. We don’t wanna see it in your profile pic. Or in any pic for that matter…

image

This is not 2013 B.C. We don’t need your dead deer pics to prove your manly worthiness. I prefer my meat cooked and on a plate, not drenched in blood and getting held by its horns.

image

This was his PROFILE pic. This was his ONLY pic. Why!?

image

Okay…profile pic. Can’t see your face. You look like you’re 12. and I get the “samurai look,” but was the ripped shirt really necessary? I guess if I ever needed a 12 yr old Samurai, I’d know where to look.

image

Profile pic. The ONLY pic. I guess if I ever have a booze shortage, I know who to go to. Also, how would I know if you’re the right or left guy? Not that it would really matter.

And might I add, his headline was “Chase here really bout monii know games”

Omg, your grammar kills! Nice to know you’re “bout monii”…..what the hell is monii?! I don’t think I’ve heard that one before. And remember, know games. Because someone who is “bout monii” clearly is about know games. I rest my case. 

I saved the best for last….or the worst for last?

image

This is either terribly photoshopped or sadly a reality. Where is your neck?…and aside from the neck-less pic, this was his profile pic and, again, his ONLY pic. 

Also, I’d like to share with you his ” About Me” section, because his picture was not the only thing wrong with this guy:

I’m not on here to hook up, so don’t even try. (No worries there. We won’t.) I don’t play no games either!!! (Ooo, three exclamation points. He must be serious about playing “no games.” At least he doesn’t “know games” like Chase.) So if you like to play games (other than elder scrolls series) Don’t bother!! I am on here with every intention to take babes to the boneyard. (I don’t think any babes will be going to the boneyard with you tonight.) I’m a total gym rat, if you couldn’t tell by the steamy pic. (Steamy? I guess that’s one way to put it…) If that bothers you then step aside and let me do what God put me on this earth to do, twerk. ( God…please don’t ever let this man twerk.) I also focus on strengthening and toning my neck. (Ahh, there it is. That explains it. Except…you seem to be missing the neck part.) The abs,those are included in the package. (I guess the neck didn’t fit in the package.) I have a down-blouse photo upon request. Boobs. (Nice touch at the end there. Real mature. I’m sure that’ll get the ladies swarming all over you.)

That’s all from my daily dose of POF tonight. And FYI guys, shirtless pics SCREAM douchebag! Don’t do it. If a girl wants to see you shirtless, she’ll let you know. 

 

Welcome to Lifetastic Saturdays!

As my very first blog entry, I’d like to welcome you to Lifetastic Saturdays!

I named my blog Lifetastic Saturdays because I think life is fantastic, and Saturday is my favorite day of the week.I mean, who doesn’t love Saturdays?!

This blog will be all about my life and experiences. My personal thoughts and feelings on subjects such as sex, college, friends, family, dating, and everything inbetween.  Think of it as Sex in the City meets Awkward from MTV. Uncensored and as real as it gets.

I’d like to remain anonymous, since I will be sharing very intimate details about  my thoughts, feelings, and life in general, but I will tell you a little bit about myself.

I’m in my second year of college. Business Administration major. I work at a kids play center. I am on the dating website Plenty of Fish, or POF for short. I love reading blogs about dating, relationships, and anything that I can get a good laugh out of, so if you have a blog, definitely link me to it! I’d love to check it out! I also have a beauty blog, and I love watching videos and writing about anything related to beauty. 

That’s as much as I’m willing to give away so far, but stick around and you’ll soon learn alot more than you probably want to know! 😉
