Who wants to go on a date?

As our friends at Adweek so aptly headlined this: “Halifax’s Horrifying Date-Night Ad Will Make You Not Want to Date for a While. Be thankful if you’ve found someone.”

I just can’t wait to start online dating again. If only one of these Romeos was available, but anyone who has made love in the NYC sewers has certainly found love already.

    Oh my god there are so many dubious mustaches in this video!

    Also on the topic of dating, I recently joined Tinder (more out of curiosity than an actual desire to date anybody) and I find it weirdly satisfying to swipe left on like 50 guys in a row. It makes me feel oddly powerful! Although it became awkward when my brother’s childhood friend, who is a huge douchebag, came up. I had already swiped left on him for looking douchey before I registered who he was! Now I’m kind of paranoid that I might one day accidentally swipe right on somebody I know IRL.

    • That’s a romantic comedy waiting to happen!

      I had Tinder for about 3 weeks. My favorite thing was that I traveled during the time I had it, and it was really funny to me how each city would have a “stereotypical” local guy. The Minnesota guys were all in boats/fishing photos, in LA it was all headshots, etc. I gave up on it after I got 4 “I’m married are you still DTF?” messages from different guys in the same day. NO THANK YOU. (I realize this is not an issue exclusive to Tinder.)

      On a related note, Tinder just announced that their premium service which has pricing, is twice as expensive if you are over 30. NYMag is calling it an “old-people tax.” LOL.

        Chicago has a lot of fake lumberjacks right now. I automatically swipe left on any guy who has a kid in his picture because I just assume it’s his kid and no thanks. I’m always amused by the number of guys whose pictures are of them on top of a mountain or in some foreign location, usually with their back to the camera or so small in the picture that you can’t see their face. I guess they think having been to Egypt or wherever makes them automatically interesting? Those guys and the ones who just take pictures of their naked torsos are my favorite to laugh at.

        • I had to walk one of my dude friends through setting up an online dating profile and it was like pulling teeth to get him to upload a clear picture of his face (he wanted to use his baby picture. HIS BABY PICTURE.). I totally understand being insecure, but I got annoyed when I pointed out the hypocrisy (no way would he ever have taken a second look at a woman’s profile with no clear pics up; he admitted this) and he STILL tried to get away with one where his face was completely obscured.

          I have a whole mess of screenshots on my phone of the most laughable/noteworthy/wierdo/inappropriate things i have seen while browsing online dating profiles. Maybe someday I will blur out the names and faces and post a bunch of them here for everyone’s enjoyment.

        • It might be because I come from an artsy background, but I judge pictures so much. Taken in the bathroom, no. Too far away and blurry, no. The same expression/pose every time, no. And yes to swiping away kids. Or even photos with girls, I don’t know why but I find it weird. I’m terrible.

      • There are so many “open relationships” on okcupid! What’s up with that?

    • I use the swiping on OkCupid and it becomes such a game. There are some interesting dudes but more often than not I’m just like “WHAT IS THIS EVEN?” So many bad photos. Or group photos where I have no idea who the guy is.

      • Sota says:

        I think I think through image selection like crazy too. I feel like you have to throw in at least one photo with other people just so you don’t look like you don’t know any people. Although one guy thought my friend was my mother in one of them…I haven’t told her that. She wouldn’t be happy about it.

    I don’t know if itk explains things or not, but that dude that made love in the NYC sewers has a weirdly small head.

    I know one person who wants to go on a date, Sota! (hint: s/he regularly searches “sota porn” on the internet)
