Chat room with women who talk dirty Small case against online dating

I’m not usually one to bitch and moan on a blog just to relieve my frustration, partly because I know nobody would read it anyway.

I’m hoping the links I post here will cure someone of their naivete before they finally bite the bullet and create that OKCupid account they’ve been meaning to make.

— and all it has taught me is that online dating is a “World War I”-grade exercise in futility, so much so that I felt the urge to post something about it here, in case anyone happens onto my dumb little site who is also thinking about trying it.If nothing else, you should know what you’re getting into before you consider signing up.Don’t go into online dating expecting it to make things easier, because it really doesn’t.All it offers is another front for (theoretically) meeting new people to go out with.According to this article from 2010 by Christian Rudder of OKCupid, paying for an online dating service is most definitely a waste of time and money.

It makes a brilliant case against the financial swindle that is the paid dating site, using eharmony and as its main examples.However, Rudder says this early in the article: “As a founder of Ok Cupid I’m of course motivated to point out our competitors’ flaws.So take what I have to say today with a grain of salt.” After a bit of online research and using OKCupid so many times myself, the irony of this statement, and the article as a whole, becomes clear to me: the only difference between OKCupid and every other dating site is a paid subscription.Rudder even states at the beginning of the article that all dating sites suffer from the same problem: women get messages from unsuitable matches, either because the messages are lewd and stupid, or the women themselves have impossible standards; and men get far too few replies, if any at all, for the same reasons.All dating sites have this issue, including OKCupid.Ergo, if the free site is just as broken and useless as a paid site, there’s no point in using site.
