Another fish dating
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.
POF is attached to an e-mail I don’t use that much, so I had missed all the other e-mails about messages I’d gotten over the past few months.
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.
I left the paragraph about not wanting to date Trump supporters in there, and just added the two photos and did nothing else.
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.
A month or two ago, I decided to take a break from all dating sites/apps for a few weeks.
I deleted a few lesser-known apps that I had been using sporadically and I deactivated my profiles on the sites that I figured I’d return to soon, but on POF I couldn’t find a way to do that so I just “hid” my profile.
However, I decided I was going to try to take the process a little more seriously, less mindless swiping, really try to meet someone etc., so I decided to change a couple of my photos so people would REALLY know what they were getting into as far as my personal views.The twitter thread describing that situation can be found here but the TL; DR of that is basically a guy saw my political opinions in my profile and started referring to Black people as “chimps” who “deserve to die” and saying my generation was what was wrong with the country.
