I’ve ranted about this before, but I am SO FUCKING ANNOYED with dudes on OKcupid.
So now with OkCupid, it’s like tinder where you have to mutually like each other before chatting. At first I was apprehensive, but I don’t actually mind the changes all that much.
But holy crap, dood’s are the fucking worst. If you are only willing to date people younger than you, you are a douchebag.
You essentially believe either 1) women have an expiry date or 2) you want some manic pixie dream girl to fulfill you dumb ass fantasies. Both of these attitudes are gross. Every 4th profile I come across is of some guy who’s 38 who wants to date a woman between 23 and 35. GTFO DUDE.
On the one hand, it’s great, because I can just filter those dudes out, but the sheer amount of men who have this preference reminds be that we have a long way to go in terms of women finding real equality. Because if 25% or more of men feel like women have an expiration date, or you want to date someone younger because she’ll have less “baggage”, you’re an emotionally stunted asshat who wants someone else to do all your emotional work for you. That is not progress.
Because as someone here once commented to me: “someone who says they don’t have baggage are forcing other people to carry it for them”
Rant over, talk about anything.
