Among the big issues with online dating for women is that, although there are true relationship-seeking men on the websites, there are also plenty of guys on there just looking for sex. While most people would concur that on average guys are more ready for sex than women , it seems that many men make the premise that if a lady has an internet dating presence, she is interested in sleeping with relative strangers. Online dating does represent the ease of having the ability to fulfill others that you possibly never would have otherwise, but women should bear in mind they probably will receive rude/disgusting messages from horny guys, sexual suggestions/requests, cock-pics, and also lots of creepy vibes.

More than 40% of men indicated that they did this, but the approach was also used by nearly a third of women.
With the popularity of sites like eHarmony, , OKcupid and literally a large number of similar others, the stigma of online dating has decreased greatly in the last decade.

Sure, a woman will not receive just sexist opinions on her dating profile, she will also have one word messages, or universal messages that say nothing. And perhaps, just possibly, in50 messages there is going to be a message from a guy who read her profile, and wrote a message that represents this, and is precisely the sort of guy she would want to really go. But if she's getting the vast bulk of messages being offensive, violent or hurtful, you're going to blame her for not bothering to read each and every one in the hope that the next guy isn't going to try and hurt her?
So, when guys become rude and insulting it's the fault of the women? How dare they not respond to any or all messages (which as all posters have said are substantially higher in number than messages males receive). Every woman is expected by law to respond to every guy who posts to her, whether that be sexist, whether it be a one word sentence, and never say anything ill-mannered (The definition of rude online including not responding, reacting and politely rejecting the offer, reacting late, reacting.....pretty much any answer which is not "Do me now!"

But go on, believe what you would like to, so a lot easier to think you are hard done by and that women are the enemy and to blame for your failures at online dating than to maybe think we're all in this together, all have our own various kinds of shit to handle, and that the great ones are more difficult to find for sure but are maybe worth the effort.

Internet dating may suck for guys, but from speaking to my sister it appears much worse for women. Sure, you get messages, but the majority of them are one-line demands for sex, rude or abusive, or simply bizarre. I've received very few messages on OKC (none in my geographic or age range, either) and never had any replies to my messages, but at least all the messages I got were considerate and interesting.
