Many different dating websites there
Before online dating existed, finding a compatible fit was far less clinical; you’d meet someone in real life, and if you enjoyed their company you might decide to on another date, maybe more.
You would at least talk to someone before you’d go anywhere near finding out what their pet preferences were …
Online dating lures us with the false promise of an “ideal” partner so much that we apply filters that ensure we never get to meet that person in the first place.
Of course, I live in a relatively small town so it’s easy to recognize locals, but I also see the same faces from larger metropolitan areas.
Forget 1 in 562, you could literally be talking about 1 in a million.
The promise of making it easier to find your “ideal” companion by letting you add filters to hone in on specific requirements has actually had the opposite effect, diminishing your pool to the point it becomes almost impossible to find anyone!
And, of course, the ones who good at selling themselves generally do so by misrepresenting themselves to some extent.
When you encounter one of these profiles, you haven’t met your ideal partner.
