When it comes right down to it, online dating is like window shopping. Many are browsing just to see what is there with no “intent to buy”. I looked in the Urban Dictiontionary for “window shopping” and I got what I thought I would find but then I also came upon this 3rd definition:
“When a man or woman in a relationship flirts with someone else, with no intention of taking it any further than that. It’s like looking at a brand new 50″ HDTV without the intention of buying it, even though it’s still nice to imagine having sex with it. Example: Matt loves his girlfriend, but he likes to go window shopping on occasion.” – Urban Dictionary
Well holy shit! This is exactly what some men and woman do when it comes to online dating. People go on the dating sites because they don’t get enough attention from their spouses. They have no intention of meeting anyone (which is good for their spouses) but they waste honest peoples’ time (bad for people like me). This irks me to no end.
Another thing that has been annoying me lately is the Intent part of people’s profiles. Almost everyone is listing themselves as “Wants to date but nothing serious”. That’s perfectly fine…but I want a relationship eventually…so I STATE that as my intention. When I ask men about that they say, “Well if it’s right then I’m open to a relationship.” Well no shit! Do they think that I’m just going to jump into something with someone because I they also stated they want a relationship? Umm no. I’m not going to jump the while “getting to know each other process.”
Another example of people who don’t know what they want! Figure it out! Please! Sigh
P.S. If you want to date with nothing Serious…then why do these same guys want to have sex with every woman they meet? I’m pretty sure the last time I checked that a man’s penis entering any orifice constitutes as something serious!
I think this turned more into a rant. Bah, it is what it is. 😛
