When I was living in southern Oregon, the dating scene at my college wasn’t that great.
A lot of people, including me, turned to online dating, and Ok Cupid was all the rage.
He came away with the realization that women have it much, much harder on these sites: I figured I would get some weird messages here and there, but what I got was an onslaught of people who were, within minutes of saying hello, saying things that made me as a dude who spends most of his time on 4chan uneasy.
I personally have had some experience with Ok Cupid before this experiment, which weren’t completely positive.

Despite Casual Kiss being kind of scammy, with only 3000 monthly visitors, I decided to give it a try all the same – and I wasn’t entirely disappointed.
It’s creepy, and in some instances really scary – not a turn-on by any means.There are also instances of men, believing women ‘have it easy’ on dating websites, setting up fake profiles and being shocked by the messages they receive.One of the most notable of these is a reddit user who set up a fake profile and didn’t last two hours.While my experiences here were relatively tame, that doesn’t mean it’s the case for every woman.In fact, it’s not uncommon at all for women to be threatened for refusing to send nudes or insulted when they say they’re not interested in the man messaging them.
