Ten worst dating websites
I’ve had a few other rude messages that I haven’t bothered including here.
My plan was to keep this up for a couple more weeks and continue collecting screenshots to make this post even funnier, but last night/this morning something else happened and I’ve decided it’s where I have to draw the line.
I purposely did not reactivate my profile on POF because I hate the site, but at one point I was showing someone on Twitter how to hide her profile and I guess as I was going through the steps of how to do it and taking screenshots, I accidentally un-hid mine.
I wasn’t aware of this for several weeks until I saw an e-mail come through about getting 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.
It’s not as though I hadn’t mentioned politics before, and I felt like on OKC/POF I had really tried to explain my point in a respectful way.The one on the left is a little more politically extreme but also serves the purpose of being a “full body photo.” Men are always complaining that women only post selfies and don’t post their full body, and I’m aware I’m not the thinnest girl (I am, according to men who catcall me on the street, “thick”) and I’m not trying to misrepresent what I look like.On Bumble and Tinder, I had always had a line in my profile saying “If you voted Donald Trump save us both time and swipe left” and on OKC and POF, where you can write a little more, I had always had the following statement: Along those same lines, it’s also important to me that you didn’t vote for Donald Trump.I have occasionally had this issue elsewhere — I think something like this happened once on Bumble, but their awesome moderators took care of it right away, and it has happened maybe twice on OKC but I contacted them and they eventually removed the profiles in question.But on POF, this issue seems to run rampant — and again, this is ONLY a sample of ONLY politically-related messages I’ve gotten in three weeks.
