I tried OK Cupid.

I got asked many inappropriate things (questions about nudes, questions about hooking up) by many different men with only a HEAD SHOT as my picture.

I subsequently deleted my account.

I made a post on the "orthonorm dating advice" thread about short messages, but most people probably (understandably) thought I was making it up. But on OK Cupid I really do get messages that are nothing more than "hey" or "hello sexy" or whatever. I know women complain about those kinds of messages a lot, and I don't doubt that they have to deal with that more than guys do, but guys deal with that as well sometimes. Having said that, I haven't had anyone ask me for nudes... yet (though I have the pics ready just in case...*)


*See, now I'm starting to joke, and people will start thinking that the whole post is supposed to be a joke... ah well...

If anyone needs a picture of me shirtless for their profile pictures, I'm game  ;)

If I ever get married, I want a woman who doesn't want kids. I've already spent so much of my life taking care of younger siblings that I don't want to spend another 18 years of my adulthood taking care of kids.
I don't blame you.

Frankly I'm in the same boat not wanting kids either. I don't know if I can really put up with it. It's not good for my mental health to have kids at this time, maybe later.

I tell you what though, if I meet the girl of my dreams and she wants kids then I'll have kids.

If I ever get married, I want a woman who doesn't want kids. I've already spent so much of my life taking care of younger siblings that I don't want to spend another 18 years of my adulthood taking care of kids.

Given your posts (on Hitler, et al), that could be seen by some as a blessing
Can you link these posts on Hitler? I am 99% sure JamesR was misread on them.

Thanks.

I tried eHarmony many, many years ago....and they gave me a $90 offer free, because out of the thousands of members they couldn't match me with anyone!  :D

That was my first and last online "dating" experience.

Out of curiosity, did you have height restrictions?
LOL. I know you are being serious, but I seriously laughed out loud because of what someone used to say about dating and height.
