Well, this is the 3rd biggest gripe in my life currently so life ain't too bad now.

Lmao! I understand what you are saying however there is a method to the madness “sometimes”

A good friend of mine and I were on the same dating website at one point ( She introduced me to online dating)…

It had gotten to the point where she would text me and send me a pic of a guy she started talking to on a more monogamous basis ( meaning she hid her profile because she thought it could lead somewhere)
….So she would send a pic of this guy and state “Has this guy sent you emails?”
7 out of 10 times? Yes, and recently as she was thinking they were going somewhere! Some of these guys had me on their faves…she would state “UGGGG!”

So she would address it and either stop talking to this guy or make it clear that we were friends…
It finally got to the point that she posted up a pic of her and I when we were at a local haunt for her bday! To show guys that we were friends and not to hit on the both of us,..lol

This does work btw…lol
I was talking to a gent as friends and we had gone to a movie as friends, he stated he liked me more than a friend..but he was an octopus when we said our final goodbyes…ick..
I did not bother to tell my girl that I had gone to the movies with this guy so about 2 weeks later this guy sends me a text and tells me, “ I think one of your friends hit me up, said something bout liking my profile and thought I was a hottie” “When I looked at her pics I noticed you were in one!” “I sent her an email and was nice but stated I Was interested in you!”

So ,long story already told, there are reasons sometimes, not all the time but sometimes…lol..

You know they're paid to pose with you, right?

Oh and my personal bugbear - the photos of the vehicles. So you have a car, a motorbike, a boat. Great....but it's not actually the car or the motorbike or the boat we are looking to date.


Well woman always like to know if a guy drives so she is getting information she won't have to ask for once they chat on the phone

I met a girl from POF last week and when she called me after only 2 mins into the conversation she asked me....."Do you drive?"

Of course I had to end the conversation

Perhaps they thing if they stand close enough to a hot girl it becomes contagious. Hotness through osmosis.

Something is very weird about any woman who posts a picture of her with a man.

Even if he's her grown up son.

I won't contact a woman like that.
