Getting rejected on online dating sites
Man assumes women have it easy because they get a ton of attention.
Man barely lasts two hours as a woman because the responses from his fellow men are so toxic.“At first I thought it was fun, I thought it was weird but maybe I would mess with them or something and freak them out and tell them I was a guy or something, but as more and more messages came (either replies or new ones I had about 10 different guys message me within 2 hours) the nature of them continued to get more and more irritating.
It’s pain from a time when you had no sense of perspective.
I wrote about this in Finding the One Online extensively – what it’s like to be a woman dating online and how men need to up their games to connect.As much as I’d told people that I was learning it for the self-discipline and the focus it taught me, just between you, me and the everyone else reading this: I wanted to be Billy Bad-Ass.I had the same fantasies of being Terry Bogard1 or Van Damme or Jeff Speakman that every other would-be ninja warrior had.Guys were full-on spamming my inbox with multiple messages before I could reply to even one asking why I wasn’t responding and what was wrong.Guys would become hostile when I told them I wasn’t interested in NSA sex, or guys that had started normal and nice quickly turned the conversation into something explicitly sexual in nature.
