(this is part of a series of entries that I simply copy and paste the text “as is” from my profile on some crappy online dating website. I will try to update my profile on a weekly basis and see what happens. Let’s see what resonates with people out there.)
Well…there are profiles that will get you a “good’ol” boyfriend who will introduce you to his family, who will fall in love with you, who will buy you that unnecessarily expensive diamond ring…and so on.
I’m assuming the tone of those profiles is mostly sweet and subliminally submissive. They probably appeal, in a very unthreatening manner, to the un-/subconscious male pathos, that…let’s be honest…even in 2014 is always striving to be the Alpha personality in the room. And there is nothing wrong with that…because ladies let’s be honest…we enjoy that thoroughly.
Then…there are profiles like mine. A pure stream of consciousness, devoid of any desire to actually connect with somebody, while in the same time, craving the potential praise for the creativity and uncanny resonance it causes in well…human beings.
I’ll be honest, that I’ve been deliberately playing around with different ways of projecting my personality to the cyber-online-dating-world. Mostly out of fun, and also because of my curious and inquisitive nature.
Or maybe, I’m just a pain in the ass, really!
I’m not advertising my blog here (online dating world), but my stuff is certainly being read more frequently, and by more people, here than anywhere else.
Yes, boys and girls, I am force feeding you my poorly phrased sentences and horribly structured essays. Most likely written while stumbling my way to Bacchus monopolized lands…
Let me get back to my not-so-sweet, not-so-subliminally submissive, blah blah blah personality. Alright! Maybe, I am too “tomboyish”, with my callused hands from crossfit and climbing (oh…and pole dancing), way too flirtatious, definitely an alpha personality, blah blah blah…but…
There is something quite shitty about a girl/woman who’s carefully summoning her sweet powers, and submissive prowess as she seduces the boy across the table from her (assuming they moved their conversation from online to F2F). All this while she plans the next 5 to 10 years of her life with said boy…things like…how big the diamond ring will be, that big wedding she wants so bad, how many children, and the like (ALL ON THE FIRST FEW DATES)…to the complete “ignorance” of poor little boy, who probably just wants to get laid.
When that happens my online dating friends, I’m not sure I want to be that sweet girl, if you know what I mean.
Just kidding! I am not that cynical. But sadly, it does happen.
I’ve considered writing a very sexually-inclined profile, with pictures of me on the pole (which, if I may add, are pretty hot), without any intellectual subtleties, just to see the kinds of guys who respond.
The latter profile falls somewhere on the spectrum of skillfully manipulating the male pathos. It works! And let me tell you…probably better than the “sweet, subdued” personalities. Especially if my goal was to “get laid”, which coincidentally aligns well with the boys primitive motivation. Oh please! Don’t roll your eyes, or stare at the screen like I just said something horrible.
Why do you think a lot of girls spend hours in front of the mirror adjusting that low-cut top, which strategically shows just enough cleavage and part of her blood red bra?
Or the ones that go all the way, and wear low cut jeans, that are so low cut, you can probably see their entire G-string underwear that has that sparkle you can’t take your eyes off of? Underwear? Wut? Forget the underwear…and wear a dress…and let the guy know.
I have a friend that does this very well. I am actually copying some of that “brilliance”, and the sad part is…it yields results. May not be the types of guys I’m looking for…but it works.
So conclusion is…guys either like sweet girls or complete sluts! ahahahah
I AM ONLY KIDDING!
I seriously hope we are a tad more complex than that.
But I definitely do not fall in the “belly” of that bell curve. And, I’m not so sure anymore it is a good thing.
