So last week I posted my 10 kinds of guys you can expect
to meet in an online dating service article. In it, I surveyed
around 100 women from all walks of life and asked them one simple
question: “What kinds of guys have you met in an online dating service”.
This week, I am posting the guy’s point of view. I sent out an email
to over 100 different guys (thanks to my University contacts) and asked
them the same question. Their responses ranged from the mild to the
wild (since this is a “g-rated” website, I will spare you the story of the
dominatrix girl that one guy met).
I have compiled the answers from over 100 guys surveyed and
these next 10 types of women seem to pop up more often than
not in an online dating service:
(Again, these are NOT my answers. If you disagree with any of these,
blame the guys you meet online for giving the responses)
1. Rosie O’donnel
The girl who just won’t shut up. Apparently some girls like to chat too
much. So much, that when the guys are talking to them on the phone,
they cannot get a word in edge-wise. To make matters worse, the girl
talks AT them, not TO them. These types of girls are great for guys who
are just getting into online dating and really don’t know what to say. Just
sit back, grab a beer and every now and then go:
“Hrmm, that’s interesting !” followed by a few accepting grunts here and there.
2. The Serial Dater (a.k.a “Attention Whore”)
This is the girl that comes online with the sole purpose of getting as much
attention as she can from as many guys as she can. She may have recently
broken up with her boyfriend, or may have been dumped so bad that her ego
has taken a boo-boo. Generally speaking, she is very attractive and her
online personals email inbox is probably too full….so full that it takes her a few
days to answer your wink or email. She might have a few scantily clad pictures
up, with ample cleavage showing, or may have such phrases as:
“Am open to meeting all kinds of guys”
“I value a guy’s personality over his looks”
Unless you are a guy that has a perfect body and is the long-lost
identical twin of her ex boyfriend who just dumped her….I would have
to say your chances are slim to none with this girl. Her sole purpose is
to make herself feel better, and at the same time, toy with the emotions
of the guys she talks to.
Remember that epic 4 hour instant message convo you had with her
the other night? Sorry to break this to you, but she was talking to 3-4
other guys at the same time she was talking to you. Aha ! Now you realize
why it was taking her so long to reply to your instant messages?
3. Totally hot chick looking for an “average guy who understands me”.
Ok, my “bullshit meter” is going off the hook here. While I am trying to
fix it, here is how this one goes:
A cute (borderline beautiful) “girl” creates a online personality profile.
In it, she states that she is tired of the games guys play, and is looking for
an honest and open and genuine man to be her boyfriend. She might say that
“looks don’t matter” and she only cares about the size of a guys heart.
Stop for a minute before you respond to her personal ad.
Do you honestly believe that a totally “hot chick” has resorted to an
online dating service to find a boyfriend and she really doesn’t care about
what you look like and who you are? Ok….it could happen, I suppose. But
more often than not, it is someone trying to get your personal contact
information so that they can send you emails on how to enlarge your male
genitalia as well as any and all porn website advertisements.
How many “average looking guys” do you think that are on any given
online dating service, as compared to “totally hot guys”? I would say
10 to 1. So these people realize this and use it to their advantage.
4. Females they aren’t attracted to
Out of the 100 guys that I surveyed, a great majority of them said
that the “unattractive females” were a type of girl that they found
I really don’t think this one needs any explanation at all.
Face it guys, no matter what you say….if a girl you are dating offers to
have sex with you on the first date….how many of you HONESTLY would
turn them down?
There are several adult online dating sites that carter to men (and women) who
are only out to have sex. True, if you look hard enough (and if that
is all you are out for) sooner or later you will find a women who is willing
to have sex with you within the first one or two dates. Chances are,
unless you specifically stick with the online dating services that cater
to the “hookup” types of people, you will most likely get rejected more
times than you can to imagine.
6. Girl that is looking for children or marriage
These are the types of women who are out for one thing and one thing only:
To get married/have children.
Generally speaking, you can tell that they
are out for this by just talking to them for a few.
She might be extremely picky, then again, a simple “let’s goto Vegas
and get married” will land you the prize fish. Good luck with that !!
7. Average girl
Average looks, average body type, average job, average sense of humor.
In short, an average girl. If you join an online dating service with any
sense of reality in your expectations, then you should look for one of these
girls to try and date. True, she may not be a size two….hell, she may not
even be a size 3-9, but one thing is for sure. If you two hit it off personality-wise
you have got yourself a honest and reliable girlfriend for a long time.
My advice? Go for the “average girl”. She will make you 100x more happier
than the blonde hair, blue eyes, size DDDD nympho that you met last
night online. Trust me on this one. I’m a girl.
8. Psychopath Patty
Hold on to your hats cowboys, you got yourself a live one here !!
Prozac, Xanax, Zoloft, you name it, she’s on it. Usually the relationship
starts off innocently enough….until you hit her “trigger”. Then all hell
breaks loose and you might start to realize that the gates of hell hath
just opened and out comes a personality that is slightly less than what
Sidenote: More than a few guys have claimed that these so called
“psycho bitches” are GREAT in bed.
9. Must love (lots of) children
This is the girl that already has a few children and is looking for a guy
to accept her for who she is. She will usually come straight out and tell
you that if you don’t like children, don’t bother emailing her. I can
personally relate, since my sister is a single mother, and it can be hard
to find a good man.
The guys I surveyed however, reported a few girls that were just out
for money and a daddy for the youngins. I would advise you to keep
an open mind when talking to a single mother online, and never discriminate
just because she has children. But, I would also advise (until you feel that
you can trust her) to always keep an open eye for the few gold diggers
that might be out there.
10. The fat chick who thinks she can do better than you
Wow. Apparently this was a big one for the guys…..
A good portion of the guys I surveyed felt that they had been “discriminated”
against by women who they felt that were completely in their league.
Some guys reported that they had lowered their standards by talking to
these women, only to be rejected time and time again.
If I could strap on (no pun intended) my “P.C.” cloak for a minute and
try to save the guys some face by translating what they are trying to say:
Some girls are just too picky and unrealistically try to date
guys that are out of their league.
There you have it. 10 types of women that over 100 guys have reported
meeting and dating online. Of course, these are just the most common
reported examples and you may or may not come across one of these
girls in your online dating experiences.
Good luck !
