One thing I always wonder about these “gotcha!” pieces in relation to online dating is how filled out their profiles are. I mean, I think these dudes who respond with insults are pretty sad sack and deplorable, but I always wonder if it’s a case baiting where they put up pictures and not much else and say to the internet “guys only talk about my looks” while their profile only says “just ask.” I’m not saying that happened in this specific case, but I always wonder. Also, I know it doesn’t fit the typical Buzzfeed narrative of women/fat people/trans people/minorities/everyone except white dudes/etc. can do no wrong, but I find it curious they don’t even address the fact that these were not normal responses. In normal conversation, people don’t usually respond to “you’re so pretty” with “I know.” It comes across as arrogant and uninviting, but at the same time, it makes it easier to write your Tumblr post!
