A straight man thought it would be fun to pretend to be a girl on an online-dating website. He imagined playful interactions with men that would end in good humor when he told them it was a prank.
He was wrong. He got a dose of reality. In the actual experience, he was bombarded by rude, aggressive and overtly sexual messages from men. It wasn't the fun he expected. "I ended up deleting my profile at the end of two hours and kind of went about the rest of my night with a very bad taste in my mouth."
His conclusion? "I came away thinking that women have it so much harder than guys do when it comes to that kind of stuff."
Does this reflect your experiences dating online?
