More often than not, people did not want to converse on the phone (which I totally get), so I would have to deal with their anger, irritation, and lots of hang ups. After college, I worked for Medicaid doing prior authorization for nursing visits and home medical equipment.
Of course, like anything in life, these aren’t hard and fast rules.
Because of the ubiquitous nature of the profiles on the site, it’s usually a quick glance, and I decide if I’m going to send a message to her. I try to get the conversation offline as fast as possible.
However, what I find interesting is what people do with said online dating profile. I have plenty of successful and attractive ones in my social circles.
Most of the conversation revolves around a few topics.
They tell stories of bad mannerisms and out-of-line expectations. They are bombarded with messages, and it’s kind of hard to sift through what’s real and authentic. We don’t talk about Ok Cupid much between ourselves, minus those rare ‘bro’ moments where we complain about women. I know that makes me somewhat hypocritical, and I’m okay with that.
