So I signed up for Plenty of Fish, for those of you who don’t know what it is…. well it is a dating website. My experience on Plenty of Fish has been…. well… not so positive. I feel like the ocean dried up and the only fish left are mummified, zombified, small brained, or just poor mannered fish.
So Mini (see nicknames) and I signed up out of boredom one night and with-in 5 minutes of signing up we already both had 10+ emails each from men that were “interested” in chatting with us. WHOAAAA that was ALOT. We were both super excited until we started looking at who were sending these emails…
The mummified fish…. these men are just too old! Lets put things in perspective, Mini and I are both 23 years old and we both had men as old as 38 messaging us. I feel like it isn’t weird when couples with a large age gap met in person, maybe they work together or had some romantic meeting. But a large age gap online???? It feels like they are just preying on young girls! Find someone your own age and stop preying on babies like us!
The zombified fish…. the conversation goes a little something like this…
Me: Hello how are you?
Him: I am good
Me: Thats good.
What the HELL is this the most boring conversation ever are you kidding me! I mean you can expect that from someone you meet at the bar face to face. Or maybe you are shy and thats precisely why you are on this sight in the first place. But you are literally hiding behind a computer screen so be yourself and be more interesting!
The Small Brained Fish…. did you proof read your profile… did you proof read your message…. y are u talken like dis…. I mean I am not one to talk, I know my grammer isn’t he best but I did graduate college and I would prefer someone who knows or at least wants to try and put their best gramatical foot forward.
The Poor Mannered Fish…. do NOT ask me if I like handcuffs… do NOT ask me to play the risque question game… do NOT ask me to come hang out with you, at your house, at night…. can you say STRANGER DANGER!
I have had one normal conversation with what seems like a respectable , well mannered, educated, interesting man… but who knows… I did meet him online so we shall see what happens….
Meanwhile in the life of Mini… she has been on three dates with a cute, nice, respectable, well educated, athletic man…. WTF is wrong with me 😦 I’m probably just too picky….
On a side note…. I don’ t know if it is on purpose or not but I would be willing to bet that 50% of the men on this site either have a picture of them fishing or a picture of them with a fish they caught. Does this site just attract people who like to fish?
