While still basking in the glow of Edie’s lovely post ❤️, I opened up the Tinder/Bumble apps and gave it the old college try again. Ha!
After several, nope, no, God no, Fucking never - no swipes. I started listing in my mind all the superficial/stereotypical (irrational?) reasons for the right swipe. Not the BIG reasons like: completely unattractive to me, interests include all things I hate, morally/ethically on opposite sides of the spectrum, but rather the LITTLE things; the pet peeves that get the 👎.
- thin/non-existant lips
- “School of Hard Knocks”
- “Partner in crime”
- Every picture the person is in hat and sunglasses and/or the same type of clothing and/or type of activity
- Interests and likes are vague - example, “I like eating out, sports, and TV.”
Also getting the no, those who use coded language like
- Looking for “sweet, fit, traditional, supportive”
And a long do-not-want list and/or list of demands
- No drama, no baggage, no sugar babies, no fatties, etc.
I will be single for life.
At the risk of falling into Lurker’s pet peeve of “am I the only one who?”, am I the only one this picky/unreasonable? What are your immediate superficial turn offs in peoples’ profiles?
