: Responds too quickly, and elaborately (there’s a balance between a thought-out message and an overly elaborate message); balks at the idea of going on a date, but keeps messaging with you; explicitly mentions inexperience or apprehension in her profile.
: Careerist chicks; mentions of having tried online dating before; unsolicited mentions of prior dates in discussion or profile.
They’ll do anything to avoid situations that cause them the faintest amount of either.
Then there’s today’s , who is more emasculated and clueless about how to properly approach and charm a girl than even a scant generation ago.
This goes beyond the infamous—and now well-understood— Myspace-Angles technique of taking pictures from an oblique angle above her head to minimize size.
Fatties use a panoply of other, subtler tricks that emphasize her best traits and distract an unsuspecting, or ill-trained, online-dater from her worst. A girl with a cute face, but a dumpy body, often fills her profile with nothing but head shots, tightly and strictly cropped at the neck.
Economic realities and cultural shifts have also made going out less appealing.
With fewer men able, or go out, they go out in a defensive posture that’s not conducive to meeting a guy.
The whole process is really the product of a perfect storm in the American dating market.
Reasonably attractive girls, increasingly suspicious of—and awkward around—strangers don’t go “out” as much as they used to, less amenable to the prospect of being approached by “creepy guys,” even as men approach girls less and less.
Over the course of the past two years, I have spent, literally, thousands of hours pouring over online profiles, unwittingly learning more about online dating (and, frankly, the female psyche) than I thought possible in that time.
These hours have yielded countless dates and, more importantly, a deep well of knowledge.
Girls on online-dating sites are like Wall Street traders on the New York Stock Exchange floor, at closing. They’re getting non-stop offers, and they’re doing their best to field all of the best ones. Not all of those offers are going to be good, so on-point messaging and logistical planning will help you stand out from the noise.
