Let me preface this with the fact that I have nothing against online dating.
Online dating is a great way for busy or introverted people, or those with weird schedules, or just those who want to meet new people outside their current circle and local haunts, to find romance or a hookup or a husband or wife or friend with benefits.
But those who signed up tend to come from metropolitan areas, earn 0,000-plus a year and have an average age of 49.
The site claims to have rejected 7.5 million people who were not deemed attractive enough to join, but Greg Hodge, CEO and co-founder of the site, wants to boost membership through his “adopt an ugly person initiative” — a provocative statement perhaps aimed at generating publicity.
The scheme — described as a “charity drive” to help people with their appearance and profile pictures — will be open to anyone over the age of 18 who feels they could do with help to improve their appearance or their dating prowess, and they will be invited to participate in a one-on-one video conference.
Sure, a lot of sites are alright, but some are definitely on the sketchy side.
This is where you’re most likely to find guys who claim to be nice, or 30-year-old males with respectable professions, who in reality are way past 30 and live in their mom’s basement.
