    I got an email on a dating site (where I had marked “looking for men”) asking if I hated men. Sure, dude, I always try to date people I hate! :p

    Everyone knows that women don’t date nice guys.

    These remind me of a guy who messaged my sister with some vile shit. So she let me write a reply. When he got back with, “Damn bitch, I was just trying to beat that up” (I love this euphemism for sex) she said, “Well, I already got beat up for 14 years, I’m trying some new stuff now.”

    He never messaged her again. What if it was true love?

    I got a message once telling me based on my profile sounded like an egotist. I messaged and telling him what a hit he must be with all the ladies. I wonder if this is the internet version of the PUA ‘neg’.

    At least you messaged him back right? ;)

    I haven’t had too many terrible emails but that being said, I did have a guy try and school me on my guitar-playing. In my profile pic I was holding my guitar and he gave me a nice condescending spiel about how to hold a guitar properly which ended with “… And now you’re ready to play”.

    I told him that a) my webcam has an auto flip function and b) how do you know I’m not playing a right handed guitar strung for left-hand use and c) I’ve been playing for 18 years so kindly fuck off.

    The worst I got was this:

    “I’m gonna masturbate thinking of you” does that make you arroused or flattered?

    ………. I didn’t reply. I actually had kind of forgotten that guy until reading these.

    OMG jemand, I swear to god I have gotten EXACTLY the same message before.

    This thread makes me glad to be done with on-line dating, hopefully for a long Time.

    sweet baby dinosaurs those are vile.
    also, why can I not shake the feeling that “push-up” guy probably is not physically fit at all.

    Snort. Then I suppose it serves the b**** right for passing up her ONE CHANCE!

    During my halcyon (ha!) days on OKCupid, I got an email from a much older gentleman (also ha!) that read: “u like big cocks in ur brain?” Nothing else.

    I am still puzzled by that cryptic message. In other news, water is wet and Internet dating is still a cesspool.

    Those messages were fightening. I never thought I’d feel ashamed to be a bloke, but those managed it.

    Oh my gosh I have so many dating horror stories! I did the online dating thing on and off for 3 years or so here in London. The highlights include:
    1/ The guy who ‘forgot’ his wallet.
    2/ The guys (yes there was more than one) who asked right at the beginning of the date ‘How do you find this internet dating thing? I am thinking of jacking it in myself’ – flattering.
    3/ The guy who’s profile picture was 3 years and 3 stone (40lbs) over weight. He later told me that he’d just reactivated his old profile when he became single.
    4/ Finally the real humdinger was the guy who spent over an hour telling me at great length about the breakup with his girlfriend (who was the woman he had left his wife for). Oh and he was also one of the ones from example no 2!

    If you’d like to read about my delightful experiences and life in general feel free to check out my blog. I recommend starting at the back and working forward. http://whatdaisydoesnext.blogspot.co.uk/

    I am glad to report though that I have recently met someone and yes it was online so it’s all bad though….!

    What we really need to do is put our heads together and find a way to make blow-up dolls respectable so these guys will leave us humans alone.
    I believe this is doable: we had a guy rent a motel room for his blow-up doll. Unfortunately, he couldn’t get her blown up so he, so help me goddess, called the local police out and asked them for their air pump when they arrived. I am not making this up.
    Dumbass is a huge market segment. All we have to do is find what they want and give it to them. Rich feminists: my dream for the future.

    If those messages are the first things to have made you ashamed to be a dude, I believe you may have been living under a rock.

    Why? I assume it was not news to you that there are assholes out there? (And these losers are better than many other scumbags who do far worse things than spewing bile on the internet)

    Just see this as an opportunity to hold up some anonymous idiots for ridicule. (And/or vent if applicable)

    Why do these dudes think this is actually going to work? You’d think they’d at least try to hide their assholeishness enough to actually go on dates and maybe get a story about them on A Bad Case of the Dates.

    Maybe some of them are just serial online harassers using dating sites for their jollies, but I suspect most of them are just plain clueless.

    They are the male version of “there are no good men left”.
