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.
Most messages flooding my inbox, of course, just said “hey how are you” because no one is original, especially on POF.
But, I have gotten a few politically charged messages over the past three you want a more detailed explanation of my opinion on this (that’s not my real last name, so don’t bother stalking me).
Funny enough, I guess I was meant to see this particular message, because I logged on and it was a message from the original racist.
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.
I stayed off the site unless I got an e-mail about a message, I didn’t look at anyone’s profile unless they messaged me, I avoided being active on the site in really any way unless I got a message.
I wanted to see what would happen if I basically just existed on the site and didn’t do anything to invite messages my way.
A month or two ago, I decided to take a break from all dating sites/apps for a few weeks.
That linked post goes into why I won’t do so, but regardless, the point of a dating site is to find someone who meets your personal preferences.
And again, I don’t think my explanation on my profile for why I didn’t want to date someone who voted for Trump was in any way disrespectful, it was just explaining my views and why they were important to me.
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.
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).
