Online Dating: Is it a Good Idea? Part 3.3
June 18, 2011 21 Comments
I’m looking through every digital nook and cranny to find the gem hidden within the litter of excrement that fertilizes the online dating world. I’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places, but I’m hoping that someday I’ll find the love of my life and together, we can trot on down eternity dealing and laughing at the malfunction of the universe. Here’s my latest find and I actually learned something new:
Date Hook Up is free and easy. If you just want to get your feet wet on dating sites, then this site is for you because sign-up is quick, navigation is easy, and you don’t have to take endless quizzes and evaluations before you can get started. You do have to complete your profile before you can take part in the Forum discussions or send another member an email.
I found the Groups and Forum sections quite entertaining, but I got the feeling that there was more chatting than hooking up going on, which was fine with me. Topic threads ranged from “how do I tell my gf I like to wear dresses” and “omg cheap date” to “The Tantra Chair” and “I want to date a stripper.”
The site has a “Sex & Dating Chat” with a disclaimer stating “Enter at your own risk.” I risked it and noticed the prevalence of spelling “naked” as “nekked” or “nekkid.” As usual men wanted to “chatterotica” while women responded with a “you wish dork,” “not in a million years” and the classic “I would if you can afford my per minute rate.”
I love acronyms, but I didn’t understand these threads: “You’re drunk and see the PAY in your bed,” “Ugly PAY, what do you do?” “F&%$, kiss or marry the PAY.” What the heck was a ‘PAY”? I Googled “online dating acronyms” and found two sites, Webopedia and All-acronyms, with a comprehensive list of online dating terms but I did not find “PAY” on their list.
So, I went back to the chat page, posed the question in the thread and found my answer: PAY= Person Above You. Then I received a very rude response from a woman who wrote:
Read the threads and STFU! lol
Well I know what STFU means, but what was so funny about her wanting to stifle my right to free speech in the chat room? I got mad and responded:
I don’t have to STFU you UCOTR (ugly c#nt on the rag). Be careful that the last PAY isn’t wearing a black robe with a sickle in his hand … lol on that you GOB (grumpy old broad).
Since there seems to be (at least on this site) a prevalent usage for dating abbreviations I decided to rewrite my profile:
SF LFM with SI for LTR. You must be DTE, DDF, and have a GSOH. If you’re M, MBL into TINA or SWS then you’re SOL.
Translation: Single female looking for male with similar interest for long-term relationship. You must be down to earth, drug and disease free, and have a good sense of humor. If you’re married, married but looking, into methamphetamine, or sex without strings, then you’re sh&t out of luck.
