June 3, 2016

Psycho killer Carl Langdell was jailed Friday for a minimum of 26 years after confessing to murdering a young teacher he met on an online dating site.

Sick fantastist Langdell lured innocent Katie Locke to a meeting via the website Plenty of Fish.

The killer told Katie, 23, he was a lawyer — setting up a fake LinkedIn account — before throttling the teacher and dumping her body near a dumpster.

He had taken photos of her dead body and sexually assaulted her.

On Friday, a judge handed Langdell a life sentence and told him that having sex with Locke’s dead body “increased the depravity of the murder.”

The Worst Things a Man Can Say in His Online Dating Profile by S. Farris

The Worst Things a Man Can Say in His Online Dating Profile by S. Farris

I would also add to the list on the page I am linking to:

Hetero Men who are seeking women on dating sites and apps: do not send women unsolicited penis photos; do not have anything mentioning sex on your profile, and do not mention (or joke about) sex in any of your “must have” lists on dating sites or any part of your profile.

I don’t care if you are totally into sex and think sex is mucho importante in a relationship, any mention of sex (even if you think it’s funny to put vulgar jokes on your profile) is a turn-off (and / or creepy) to most women.

You wait until you have been dating a person for awhile to bring sex up, and even then, you should be TASTEFUL about it, not crass or perverted or weird.

Excerpts:

  • They show up for dates looking nothing like their pictures. They tell long, rambling stories about their “psycho exes” or spend the entirety of the evening talking about their material possessions.
  • Men who date online never fail to surprise the women they meet, but they seem to be blissfully ignorant of the fact that they’re scaring people off.
  • With men now (Link): drastically outnumbering women on many dating apps, can guys afford to offend the few female users they might attract?
  •  

    Working with April Masini, a New York City-based relationship expert and psychotherapist, we analyzed responses from women who are currently active on the online dating scene.

  • Masini regularly offers dating advice to people of both genders through her website (Link): AskApril.com. She reviewed the lines women hate to see most on online dating profiles and gave her advice on how men can better phrase them.
  • 1. “No drama.”
  • By the time people join online dating sites, they’ve often had a wealth of experiences that include breakups, job transitions, and possibly even parenthood.

Online Dating Fatigue is a Real Thing and It’s Happening to Everyone by M. Vanderberg

Online Dating Fatigue is a Real Thing and It’s Happening to Everyone by Madison Vanderberg

(Link): Online Dating Fatigue is a Real Thing and It’s Happening to Everyone

Excerpts:

… These women were deleting their dating apps because they were tired.

They had reached online dating fatigue

Curious to find out if anyone else had hit a wall in their online search for love, I polled a selection of singles who were actively dating and learned that all of them had deleted their dating apps recently, and most commonly, have deleted and reactivated their apps over and over again. The reason for deleting their dating apps all seemed to boil down to either time consuming, frustrating, or boring.

…“Honestly, I get really fed up with all the same bullshit and aggressively persistent men. I’m not obligated to talk to someone.” – Olivia, late-twenties.

“The constant swiping and messaging and checking my app was becoming a chore. A boring chore that took out all the supposed ‘fun’ in dating. And when I did go on a date, they were so underwhelming, it just felt like, What’s the point of this?” – Jess, late-twenties*

…According to a 2016 study by the (Link): Pew Research Center, 1/3 of singles on a dating app have not actually gone on any dates from the app. And among Americans who were married or in a committed relationship in the last five years, 88% of them met their partner offline.

My Online Dating Experiment by C. Lloyd (Christian Author)

My Online Dating Experiment by C. Lloyd (Christian Author)

You see how the author of the following piece says men are too picky and discriminatory about age on dating sites? That’s why, if you are a woman, you should subtract ten to fifteen years off your true age when you put your age on a dating site.

However, I will not date men who are more than five, six years my junior, so should any super young guys contact me on dating sites, I don’t contact them back. I’ve written about all that in prior posts, so I won’t get into that here.

The lady who wrote this says her female friends (who also did this online dating experience at the same time she did) noticed that the Christian men on Christian dating sites were unattractive.

I’ve noticed that too.

About any time I see Christian men on dating sites or in singles classes at local churches, they tend to look dorky, dweeby, or are obese.

Physical appearance of a man is important to single women, even Christian ones, but you wouldn’t know that fact thanks to all the gender stereotyping garbage that Christian gender complementarians push in their blogs, articles, and sermons, which keep telling Christian men that women are “emotionally wired” and that women don’t care about sex or looks, and that men are supposedly “visually wired” and care about looks.

Excerpts:

  • A few months ago, we asked Carrie Lloyd to delve into the world of online dating. She reveals what it takes for a single Christian woman to hook up via cyberspace.
  • ————–
  • … A dedication to online dating, just for you; for this article. Having chatted to the Premier Christianity team, I agreed to experiment in trying to find love in the cyber world, with all its personality filters: lawn game champion, marathoner, political junkie, health nut, zombie survivalist, tree-hugger, vegan, die-hard carnivore, non-believer in cologne (or deodorant), and finally, but importantly for me, just how much are you a Christian – really?
  • Taking the plunge
  • So, at 35, and still yet to find the right man to marry, would the online dating world be full of desperate souls seeking marriage so their lives could begin?

Sex Might be Easier to Find These Days. That Doesn’t Mean Love is Too – by Nell Frizzell

Sex Might be Easier to Find These Days. That Doesn’t Mean Love is Too by Nell Frizzell

(Link): Sex Might be Easier to Find These Days. That Doesn’t Mean Love is Too

Excerpts

  • Historian Lucy Worsley’s argument that Jane Austen could not write her novels in the Tinder age is flawed. Romance now is as difficult as it ever was
  •  It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of good fortune must be in want of sex with a man who doesn’t use the smiling turd emoji.
  • This week, the historian (Link): Lucy Worsley set petticoats aflutter when she tried to argue that dating in the modern world simply doesn’t have enough obstacles to achieve the “slow exquisite torture of love” found in great fiction.
  • That Jane Austen could not write her novels now, in this age of Grindr and Tinder, “when bored singletons search for one-night stands with a few clicks of their mobiles”. Which is, of course, as ironic as any passage from the creamy pages of Pride and Prejudice because the frontline of modern dating is nothing if not a churning, pitted wasteland of judgment, etiquette, deceit, dismissal, disappointment and, worst of all, choice.

Gross Guy Roy on Dating Site, Wife #2 Was A Stripper – Says He’s a Protestant Christian

Gross Guy Roy on Dating Site, Wife #2 Was A Stripper – Says He’s a Protestant Christian

Well okay then.

One of my friends told me to sign up for a dating site a few years ago. So I did.

This was my second attempt at using a dating site, as I had used one a few years prior, gave it up, then rejoined after my friend egged me on. I’ve had no intention of dating the last few years, so it’s not a site I visit often.

I do get e-mail notifications from this site almost daily about men who view my photos and profile, and they send me flirts and “like” my photos and so on. I did visit this site today.

I logged in and looked at my member page.

First of all, upon visiting the site today (my first time in months), one of the guys I was sent in my in-box is 60 years old, which is way over my age limit.

Even though I specify I will only consider men ages “X to Y,” these sites will send me men either way too old or too young… or, the site will allow men much older / younger to hit on me. No thanks.

(By the way, related post this blog: (Link): Ageism Vs. Age Preferences and Creepy Older Men (critique of post at another blog))

Some other guy on there who was flirting me up? Oh what a loser…

Dude is in his 50s, has been divorced twice. I think his name was Roy. Continue reading “Gross Guy Roy on Dating Site, Wife #2 Was A Stripper – Says He’s a Protestant Christian”
