Content notice for racial and gender-based slurs as well as rape apologism and fatphobia. This post is heteronormative not because I’m hetereosexual, but because most of my online dating “adventures” have been with men.
I am, for better or for worse, a seasoned veteran of OkCupid. I’ve been using it off and on for almost a decade now. The way in which I have used it and for what end has varied over the years, as has my weight, my appearance, and my sexual orientation.
What hasn’t changed?
- For various reasons, I’m not everyone’s non-platonic cup of tea.
- Most men on the site claim to be opposed to at least one of the facets of who I am.
- I get messages from those men anyway.
- Hilarity ensues.
