I personally feel that it's bullshit that I have to 'compensate' for my race, but I know that the stigma exists and is definitely real, so it's just another thing I have to deal with. Edit: I'm also from an area that is somewhat low on interesting people, so that may be another factor. I gave up online dating and honestly I'm happier as a result.I wasn't getting the matches I was looking for and caved and figured I'd wait for someone to come along the old fashioned way.Ive constantly made and deleted profiles from Okcupid, tinder, bumble, etc. Im gonna go back to old fashioned way of asking women out and taking the outright rejections and “i have a boyfriend” excuse instead of sending a message and being put in the “read zone”. It leads to a lot of echo chamber opinions because there's a bias here.
Some sites take this to an extreme degree and let you go nuts specifying the attributes you want: professional background, religion, salary, ethnicity, personal habits, even pet preferences!
What they don’t ever make clear is that each filter you add diminishes your chances of finding a compatible partner even further.
And if you don’t like what you see, you can always click on to the next profile – there is always another candidate just around the corner!
Of course, online dating wouldn’t be so popular if it didn’t work for so many people.
And with such an alluring promise, it’s understandable why online dating took off so quickly.
Suddenly there was a different way to find a partner, one that promised practically infinite possibilities, where an algorithm could find you the “right” person without you needing to do the hard work of ever actually talking to them in person.According to some estimates, there are over 8,000 online dating sites worldwide, and over 2,500 in the US alone.Yes, that’s just the number of different it’s no wonder that many people find online dating overwhelming!I've got accounts on Tinder, Bumble, OKCupid, e Harmony, POF, and On all 6 of them I've managed to swipe on every single woman within my city or the surrounding cities. Hundreds of women across 6 different sites, and not one of them has wanted to start something with me. This is where I can really feel it..Ok everyone.... Step 1: if you aren’t matching with anyone at all ever, you have to do something about your pics.Have one pic of you and an attractive hobby, a pic of you with a drink in your hand, a pic of you with a dog, a pic of you with friends, and then a standard pic of you just looking sharp and smiling.A bit over a decade ago, online dating was viewed by many as the last resort for those who hadn’t found a relationship the “normal” way.
