Many communications flooding my inbox, needless to say, simply stated “hey how are you” because no body is initial, particularly on POF.

I do want to simply take one minute to notice that i am aware men and women have a selection of viewpoints on what much to think about politics whenever finding you to definitely date. We have addressed this prior to in a write-up that has been found by consideration Catalog if you need a more step-by-step description of my estimation about this (that’s perhaps not my genuine final title, so don’t bother stalking me personally). Nevertheless the true point is, they are MY values and MY choices in terms of dating. I don’t expect every person to feel since highly as me personally about this problem, plus some supporters that are non-Trump really very well be happy to date a supporter, and that’s their option. That connected post switches into why I won’t achieve this, but irrespective, the idea of the site that is dating to get a person who meets your private preferences. And once again, I don’t think my description on my profile for why i did son’t desire to date somebody who voted for Trump was at any real means disrespectful, it absolutely was simply describing my views and exactly why these were vital that you me personally.


Anyhow, in the last couple weeks, I’ve gotten some one-off that is random supporting messages such as for example:

I acquired a few from those who began rude then weirdly seemed thinking about me:

We wouldn’t have marriage that is boring. Wtf. We reported that one but he could be nevertheless here.

I acquired some that simply arrived out of the gate having a lecture

Ahhhh, the move that is classic of a girl whom disagrees to you fat. We reported this person might 2, he could be still here.

I obtained a few that started off non-political but later on made a decision to make use of it being an insult when I wasn’t tripping over myself to talk to them

This is actually the ONE individual through the previous few weeks that POF did eliminate. I assume “salty cunt” is when the line is drawn by them!

This might be only a sampling of exactly exactly what I’ve gotten during the last three months. I’ve sporadically had this issue elsewhere — i believe something similar to this occurred once on Bumble, however their awesome moderators took care of it straight away, and contains occurred perhaps twice on OKC but We contacted them and additionally they eventually removed the pages under consideration. But on POF, this dilemma appears to run that is rampant once again, this really is ONLY an example of JUST politically-related messages I’ve gotten in three days. I’ve had a couple of other messages that are rude I haven’t bothered including right here.

My plan would be to keep this up for a couple more weeks and carry on screenshots that are collecting get this post also funnier, but final night/this early morning another thing occurred and I’ve decided it is where i need to draw the line.

I obtained these communications from some guy yesterday:

Their profile stated he had been a small business owner, thus I did a reverse image search on their images to attempt to determine what their company had been therefore I could possibly be certain to never ever patronize it. I discovered their Instagram and Twitter, plus the individual from their pictures is actually a man that everyday lives in Las vegas, nevada (extremely not even close to where I reside), and it has been in a relationship with a man since 2015. At this time we either knew that his pictures have been taken or that some random homosexual man in Nevada ended up being posing being an East Coast right man merely to harass females. He previously a complete great deal of pictures for this guy, too!

This I messaged his boyfriend about it morning. I became just a little afraid to message the profile straight just in case it truly ended up being him, but We felt like somebody ought to know. He confirmed these are generally certainly taken pictures and now we had a beneficial laugh about any of it, but despite me personally reporting this profile for rude communications as well as for fake pictures, and tweeting at POF in regards to the problem, his profile remains up. Awarded, it offers just been 1 day, but it is this kind of egregious violation of someone’s privacy that there surely is no excuse with this. Whenever this example is solved I shall formally be deleting my POF profile, maybe maybe maybe not “hiding,” actually deleting, for for good.
