Plenty of fish on line dating
I can accept some political differences with a person I’m dating, and normally I wouldn’t really care who you voted for in a presidential election, but my fears and concerns about this upcoming administration go beyond any typical difference of opinion/political party/etc (let’s be serious, Donald Trump is only pretending to be a republican anyway, so this isn’t my way of saying I won’t date republicans).
Most of my professional work has been in low income and minority communities so I have strong feelings about how his presidency will impact those populations.
The one on the left is a little more politically extreme but also serves the purpose of being a “full body photo.” Men are always complaining that women only post selfies and don’t post their full body, and I’m aware I’m not the thinnest girl (I am, according to men who catcall me on the street, “thick”) and I’m not trying to misrepresent what I look like.
On Bumble and Tinder, I had always had a line in my profile saying “If you voted Donald Trump save us both time and swipe left” and on OKC and POF, where you can write a little more, I had always had the following statement: Along those same lines, it’s also important to me that you didn’t vote for Donald Trump.
He had started a new account and messaged me:so to be clear, I told him to leave me alone, and he told me he was going to find me on Facebook. I reached out to POF, both through a report on the site and a Twitter DM, because when I had made my original thread about them they had DMed me.
This was April 19 and as of May 10, he’s still on the site because POF is horrible.
I decided to change my POF photos the same way I had my OKC photos and see what kind of messages I got.My hatred of Plenty of Fish (aka POF) is so well-documented it wouldn’t even be possible to link to all my past rants about them.If you’re curious, I’ve talked about them in my review of paid dating site upgrades and while I think there are many things wrong with the site, the thing that really set me off about them was when I encountered a racist on their site and they did very little about it.I have occasionally had this issue elsewhere — I think something like this happened once on Bumble, but their awesome moderators took care of it right away, and it has happened maybe twice on OKC but I contacted them and they eventually removed the profiles in question.But on POF, this issue seems to run rampant — and again, this is ONLY a sample of ONLY politically-related messages I’ve gotten in three weeks.
I got these messages from a guy last night: His profile said he was a business owner, so I did a reverse image search on his pictures to try to figure out what his business was so I could be sure to never patronize it.
