I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but I wanted to vent about men that just say "hey" or "hi" when you match with them on OLD. I guess we can add "hey beautiful" too ...and then they expect you to carry the entire conversation from there--and later, the entire relationship if you're naive enough to entertain them from the get-go. It's the junk email/spam of online dating, and splutters out pretty quickly if you respond with equal low effort--their entire "strategy" is predicated on women doing all or most of the work, not them.
It's even more annoying when you've spent the time to fill out a detailed profile (like on Ok Cupid) and they literally have dozens of things about your interests or personality to work with if they spent five minutes to read and think about it, and they just say, "hey" or "heyyyy [emojis]." Do they do this in person? Walk up to a woman and say hi and then stare at her? lmaoooo
The lowest of low effort. And I know damn well they don't get very many matches....it's so lazy and self-defeating. Also: quick note for men who say "but I write actual messages and don't get matches!1!!" As one of the ladies said on the podcast, you're probably not that physically attractive --something women are too kind or too scared to say--or there's something else in your profile that's off-putting to women; e.g. unemployed, only employed part-time, bad pictures, drug use, you have kids, you're divorced, etc.
