    Is there training to survive the heat on this train? I'm sweating and will probably smell by the end of the journey. Why is there no air conditioning?!

    Well, yes, but the training is mostly just "continuing to spend time on a hot train until you get used to it" so it probably isn't worth it.

    It's very conflicting being messaged only about your appearance.

    I don't do that
    I ask questions based upon what they write in their profile
    This seems not to work so o well
    I even get messages based upon my appearance so I went and changed all my pics to where I looked just nasty to see what happened

    I am prepared to never hear from this person again as long as I live.

    They've just apologised for the lack of air conditioning. Thankfully I'm escaping in 10 minutes, sweatily.

    I'm on a bench next to two teenage boys asking out a girl over the phone for the other teenage boy in the group. I wonder if that still works at my age.

    So yesterday I was told by my job I have to resign because they won't reduce my hours so that I can go to my classes for my last semester of school. That really soured me and I had my first ever date with someone older than me, and I wasn't in the best of moods.

    That all changed once I got to the city we were meeting up, because I saw the only thing that could make me feel fantastic no matter what: a DeLorean. I'm ridiculously obsessed with these cars, and got to take a few pictures with it after it parked.

    Oh the date went well too.

    Transformed into "Localsexfriend" he's dropped the "4 u" so I guess it wouldn't be exclusive anymore.

    And back again. Being objectified is getting old.

    True story - my okcupid profile pic has my hair covering my face with sun glasses on cousin it style and I still get comments about being hot.

    I think not only are dudes not reading the profile, they might not even be looking at the picture.

    Do you have to use a picture of yourself on these sites? I'm wondering what your hit rate would be like if you had, like, a really gorgeous soft-edged studio photo of a fern.

    ...probably find a startling number of dudes into tree-fucking. Never mind.

    I think OkCupid might kinda... suck?

    I'm not saying it's a lousy dating site but it doesn't make things very easy or fun

  • PlatyPlaty Registered User regular
    Also, that there is a premium search function by which you can sort by attractiveness and body type seems tailor-made for guys who get a kick out of sending garbage messages to ladies

    Is this self-declared body type
    Ugh it all sounds pretty gross and meat market-y to be frank

  • PlatyPlaty Registered User regular
    I think it is self-declared body type, they make you choose yours from a list

    OkCupid makes me feel like I'm window-shopping anytime I look for matches

  • OmnipotentBagelOmnipotentBagel Shell, Teeth, Eyes, Flame, Claws, Breath, Scales, FUN!Registered User regular
    Yeah, the "sort by attractiveness thing" made me go "ugh" at first and then I thought about it and realized "wait, how could that possibly even actually work?" Either it's largely bullshit metadata garbage or they have some crazy image-processing algorithms.

    And yeah, Tynic, there's a spot in your profile where you can list your body type from a pre-generated set of options. I could do without it, really.

    Especially when you get the quickmatch thing where you can't even view their profile, just "look at these pictures and say yes or no".

    Attractiveness is probably a measure of how many clicks a profile gets - when you're looking for matches, you see the pictures and match percentage, so that determines whether you click on a profile

    OmnipotentBagelHacksaw
  • OmnipotentBagelOmnipotentBagel Shell, Teeth, Eyes, Flame, Claws, Breath, Scales, FUN!Registered User regular
    Like, my biggest pass-fail metric for OKC is the profile. I don't care what our match percentage is or what your pictures are like, if you don't have anything substantial in your profile, if I don't have the slightest idea of what you're like as a person, I'm not interested.

    (My second biggest pass-fail metric is my stupid brain and it's really more like fail-fail)

  • PlatyPlaty Registered User regular
    I think it's a general problem with dating sites and apps that they're not very fun

    It's less "hooray, let's see who we'll talk to today" and more "this feels miserable"

    I can still count on one hand the number of profiles I've looked at that gave me a "I must talk to this person" kind of vibe. Most of the time, there's just enough there to get the bare minimum of what their personality might be.

    Sadly it was not mine to kiss or get inside. I did take some stealth pics when the car wasn't looking.

    When I get my own you bet I'll kiss it so much, the stainless steel good will look like John Mayer leaving the club.
