Dating App GAF: Anything that makes you quickly "swipe left" on somebody?

Woman with facial piercings and earlobe stretching repulse me. Smoking cigarettes, vaping, canabis use and recreational drug use are all an instant no no for me. Also piss heads, I don't mind casual drinkers though. Obviously there needs to be a certain amount of attraction, but personality is key for me.

I was in a serious relationship with this woman a couple of years ago. When we started having serious problems, even before trying to talk them out and resolve them as, you know, two grown ass adults should (and as adults have been doing since the beginning of time), her immediate go to was... therapy.

She went even further than that and said that if we wanted to go further into the relationship (we were pretty serious so she had thrown the idea of marriage around), that therapy/counseling was a required prerequisite. When she said that, I said OK, then said:



I can maybe (and that's a weak maybe) understand if you've been married for several years and the marriage is hitting a dangerously low point, and you're trying to save the marriage for both of your sakes, and your children's sakes, etc.

But yeah, when you're still in the dating phase, when everything is supposed to be good and you're not jaded yet? Therapy at THAT point? Nah, fuck that. It tells me your conflict resolution skills are weak AF.
100%, I would be the same way. Was your ex into following celebrities on social media? I have a sneaky suspicion that people are being influenced by Hollywood's obsession with therapy. They all do it, and it's at the point where the people that don't go to therapy are seen as the weird ones. Kristin Bell and Dax Shepard's marriage in particular seems to be held up as shining example of a marriage (even though they say it's not) and they do therapy all the time.

I know Hollywood is a strange world full of poorly adjusted people owing in part to the culture of being fake and most actors being needy attention seekers, but do people really have so little capability that they can't sit down with someone they care about without a third party telling them how to talk?

What a strange world we live in.

Yeah it all started in the 40s as a way to prevent kids to masturbate and not feel too much pleasure during sex… it is amazing how now became the norm. Also this from a country who is against abortions but has no problems to cause pain to newborn baby boys…
Exactly! I find cut penises weird. I don't feel comfortable with them. The tip is so intensive.

And the poor baby boys :messenger_crying:...

I had to go to therapy for panic attacks. Was from smoking weed. Even attended with a love bite. Pharmacy next door girl looked disgusted, gave concealer for free.

I didn't care, kinda proud. With her 10 glorious years. Hadn't one since a teenager, made me feel young again.
 
Women have no skill on how to get a man. Period. So when they say bullshit like “surprise me, make me laugh” or “say more than hello” - bitch, bring your A game on as well. You ain’t special. Sometimes you see women with just a profile pic and nothing else on their profile, literally blank. Automatic no. That tells me you have nothing to offer other than your looks.

Also, women who say shit like “I’m smart, funny, witty, and adventurous” - LOL! Anybody, man or woman, who needs to validate themself by saying they’re smart are kidding themselves, 😂

Never had to use an ap. Get girls easy peasy, not ashamed about it either.
It's even easier on an app.

That's kind of the whole premise of the thread, right? That we have it so good that we can choose to be picky?

If we didn't have it good, we'd be desperate and bang the first "Live, Laugh, Love" blue-haired whale that shows up at our door 😂

thinks Halo Infinite is a new graphical benchmark
The human element in person is more important I just think talking online is weird and doesn’t really mean anything.

Which one, the pharmacy girl or the lovebiter?

It's only slightly better here in Japan.

Many profile pics are of things. I mean, it gives you something with a bit of substance to work on I guess? Then there are the photos of them from the back, or from obscure angles. The worst are the group photos (and they all to often end up being the ugly one).

"if you only say "hello" swipe left, be original and surprise me"
while having an empty bio that gives you no cues.


You make an effort too, bitch. It's 2022. Parity.
I used to hate these ones, ESPECIALLY if you matched and THEY start the convo with "hey", like bitch hold yourself to your own standards!
 
I keep swiping left because I'm still looking for your MOTHER.

But seriously, I swipe insta left when their bio is all 'hit me up on insta can't read messages on here (insert insta name)'.

Fuck off, I'm not here just to up your number on how many instagram followers you have.

Never seen a woman starting the conversation, in Italy. I did had some starting the conversation in Korea, Japan, UK and some other countries. Italians? They never do. Maybe if you're a Chris Evans or something.

Anyway, blame the doormat "males" for allowing those standards.

I always swiped left on girls with pronouns and political bs in their bios.

If that's the defining point of your personality then you can't be much fun.

The irony is I met my current gf on Hinge and she's fairly woke but at least she's not insufferable about it.
I’m pretty sure anyone who doesn’t tow the party line is banned when it comes to online dating apps. I very rarely saw profiles outside one kind of view. It makes them look bad when you see only one side is single lol

Back in the early days of Tinder, there were actually normal people using it. Tried it for a month recently, and holy crap. The amount of communist/non monogami/narcissists is through the roof. Didn't swipe right on a single woman, it was just a sea of shitty people. Uninstalled and never looked back. I feel sorry for you youngsters growing up in this environment.

Saw a profile just this morning.

"I'm looking for someone to...

... Help me smash the patriarchy..."

There was other stuff after that but I immediately stopped reading and swiped left 😂 Because let me tell you, young lady... While you're busy "smashing the patriarchy," you know what WON'T be getting smashed, by any guy?

You.

New girlfriend. Pharmacist was older, hence the shock. I didn't ask for one, she just did as was super horny.
Told me she had a boyfriend, didn't believe her.
She did, i felt awful but the dude was a prick, her best mate tried to find another for her, different dude but once she saw me. Her mate told her to kiss me and she said only if i kiss you first.

They did, then 10 years of love. Still very good friends to this day.
