I hate online dating and I’m never doing it again. I did meet my last serious gf online, but other than that, I haven’t had much luck.
I’ve had to reject one or two chicks because I found them annoying for one reason or another. But mostly I’ve bot rejected. I’ve had messages disregarded (many times), message exchanges that went nowhere (a good number of times), and coffee dates that went nowhere (a few times).
I’m chalking up 50% of my rejections to being awkward and ugly. The other 50% I couldn’t quiebro capture. But now, I get it. Everyone who creates online dating profiles speak te their own language. If you don’t know the language, you have no slok at surviving—whatsoever.
I’ve created a translation guide so you can navigate the tricky world of online dating profiles, and figure out what you’re getting yourself into. Hopefully, it’ll spare you some trouble. I did a guide for damsels and a guide for guys.
So here it is. I hope it serves your well and good luck!
