One friend brought up a message where a man had told her that because she was a ‘woman of size’, she ‘must suck good ****’. Others in the past have conducted similar experiments, setting up fake accounts on free dating websites and recording the messages they received.Cracked’s Alli Reed set up ‘the worst online dating profile ever’ and still received heaps of messages from men who wanted only to hook up with the terrible woman she had created.Plentyof Fish is perhaps the most popular online dating sites out there, with an estimated 6 million pageviews a month and 76 million users (a little less than the entire population of Turkey).It’s no surprise that I received nearly twice as many messages on Plenty of Fish than Ok Cupid and Casual Kiss combined.Continuing to be horrible did not dissuade any of them.There are also instances of men, believing women ‘have it easy’ on dating websites, setting up fake profiles and being shocked by the messages they receive.I joined February 4th, around 7 AM, and received a total of one vote, two winks, and six messages.
I spoke to a few friends about their experiences with online dating websites.
A lot of people, including me, turned to online dating, and Ok Cupid was all the rage.
As I was serious about finding someone, I uploaded a lot of pictures of myself, had a very thorough profile, and received a lot of attention. Eventually, it got to be too much and I closed my profile.
In total, I received 34 messages, all of which were very nice.
I never replied to any of the messages, however there were a few men who messaged me twice despite that, in an attempt to get a response.I personally have had some experience with Ok Cupid before this experiment, which weren’t completely positive.
