Worst dating site photos
He had started a new account and messaged me:so to be clear, I told him to leave me alone, and he told me he was going to find me on Facebook. I reached out to POF, both through a report on the site and a Twitter DM, because when I had made my original thread about them they had DMed me.
This was April 19 and as of May 10, he’s still on the site because POF is horrible.
I don’t expect everyone to feel as strongly as me on this issue, and some non-Trump supporters may very well be willing to date a supporter, and that’s their choice.
That linked post goes into why I won’t do so, but regardless, the point of a dating site is to find someone who meets your personal preferences.
This situation, while annoying, inspired me to conduct an experiment.
I decided to change my POF photos the same way I had my OKC photos and see what kind of messages I got.
I stayed off the site unless I got an e-mail about a message, I didn’t look at anyone’s profile unless they messaged me, I avoided being active on the site in really any way unless I got a message.
I can accept some political differences with a person I’m dating, and normally I wouldn’t really care who you voted for in a presidential election, but my fears and concerns about this upcoming administration go beyond any typical difference of opinion/political party/etc (let’s be serious, Donald Trump is only pretending to be a republican anyway, so this isn’t my way of saying I won’t date republicans).
Most of my professional work has been in low income and minority communities so I have strong feelings about how his presidency will impact those populations.
I got these messages from a guy last night: His profile said he was a business owner, so I did a reverse image search on his pictures to try to figure out what his business was so I could be sure to never patronize it.
I found his Instagram and Facebook, and the person from his photos is really a man that lives in Las Vegas (very far from where I live), and has been in a relationship with a man since 2015. I was a little afraid to message the profile directly in case it really was him, but I felt like someone should know.
Three or four weeks later I came back to Bumble, Tinder, and OKCupid.
