Featured on the Reddit forum Two XChromosomes, which is "related to gender, and intended for women's perspectives," OKCThrowaway22221's story is reminiscent of others in recent memory who have opted to dabble in fake profiles, to see what they come up with.This Reddit user, however, was convinced that us womenz is always lyin' 'bout how shitty we haz it on teh internetz, and wanted to prove that ladies have a way easier time finding a match than teh poor menz.
I was joking with her that "girls have it easy on dating sites" etc. I had never really done anything in the online dating world but I had set up a real profile a few years back and didn't use it much aside from getting a few nice messages and decided it wasn't really for me.Anyway, don't stop reading now and start posting angry comments about this guy and his misconceptions, because you need to see what happens next.I finished setting up my profile, used a picture of my friend for the profile pic with her permission, and said I was interested in Long term dating/short term dating and was good to go. But before I could even close the tab another message was received.It was another guy who seemed nice asking how I was doing and I messaged him back staying as neutral and as uninterested as possible without being mean.I was about to leave again, but I was kind of curious now, so I waited another minute, and sure enough, a third message popped up (also I feel this is a good point to say that my friend would be the first to say she's a pretty average looking girl).But, as I said, I was bored, so I decided that I would set up a fake profile.
Set it up as a gender-swapped version of me essentially see what would happen. Before I could even fill out my profile at all, I already had a message in my inbox from a guy.
It wasn't a mean message, but I found it odd that I would get a message already.
So I sent him a friendly hello back and kind of joked that I hadn't even finished my profile, how could he be interested, but I felt good because I thought I was right that "girls have it easy" HAHAHAHAHA said everyone woman ever who has tried online dating. If your idea of "easy" is somewhere along the lines of scaling Mount Kilimanjaro naked with a rhino strapped to your back—a rhino who makes nonstop gross, unwanted sexual comments to you.
I messaged him back, but before I could send, I had gotten a reply from the first guy, so I had to do that, then a reply from the second guy.
So fine, people are interested in going out with me.
Then I got another message that opened with a line that while not wholly vulgar, kind of came off a little strange.
