FML - The follow-up

Today, I was messaging a nice guy. He sent a picture of himself and asked for one back. Shortly after my picture sent, he blocked me. FML

He simply realized you were so far out of his league that he might as well not even attempt it. At least, that's what I tell myself every time it happens to me...

Obviously looks matter, just pointing out the fact that OP was blocked. Blocked because their looks mattered to so much of a point that nothing else did. So yes in this case it is shallow, and they are better without him.

Are you seriously saying you find it acceptable to block a person you're talking to just because you don't find them attractive? Would a little "sorry, but I don't think you're my type, have a nice day" hurt that much?

It is one thing to not want a physical relationsip with a person you don't find attractive. It's a whole 'nother can of worms to refuse any further interaction whatsoever with a person based solely on looks. Not even a, ''No, thanks.''

No, the whole concept of "beauty is a social construct" pertains to the "standard beauty" of women being "skinny but perfect curves", "white but not pale", "you're ugly if your face isn't masked by makeup", etc. That's bullshit because it says that everyone should fit into this tiny box or else they won't be loved. What ISNT bullshit is people being naturally attracted to those who are more apparently healthy (based on first glance) or are even just their type.

I don't know if the guy's comment was removed or if I just can't see it, but I might as well explain before I get bashed. I do agree with everyone else saying that it's shallow of him to block OP just because he's not attracted to her, especially if they got on so well. For me, I've always found that if someone's personality is amazing to me, they become physically attractive to me over time as well, but that's because they are attractive as a whole person.

considering that im at peace, after accepting both good and bad aspects of myself... well, im not really proud of my status of Emperor Asshole, but, its still a part of who i am. i can be less of an asshole. much less. but doing that doesn't make it me, or my native personality. its expensive to run non-native personality aspects, with no real reward.

The only thing I can think of #8 may be referring to is a movie called Shallow Hal. A guy in the movie (not Hal) ghosted a girl he was dating cos he had issues. He blamed it on her weird toes. Idk. Just guessing tho.

What about showing my dates my baby photos? I was a wild child and into streaking from a young age. You know, feel the wind against my skin and all the flapping of my various body parts. It was glorious. Actually, not much has changed since then, but I digress.

There is nothing wrong with online dating. Your relationship is not better just because you met through friends or wherever else. Seriously, what's the difference between meeting a random stranger in a class then going on a date, vs meeting a random stranger online then going on a date? Either way your relationship still starts out the same way, as strangers that don't really know each other. Meeting online is not bad or shameful. 1 in 4 relationships begin online, and it's increasing. It can be a lot easier to get to know someone online first then go on a date when you know you are compatible vs going on dates to find out if you're compatible. It's also a lot easier for introverts, like myself, where conversing online is easier and where social interaction with unknown people can be uncomfortable. I met my boyfriend online, Plenty of Fish to be exact. He's the best guy I've ever known and dated, sweet, caring, respectful and smart. He treats me better than anyone I've ever known. We're basically exactly the same in almost every way. We're very compatible and I got to know all this because I met and talked to him online first. We're celebrating our 1 year anniversary today.

My dad's brother so my uncle and his wife, my aunt met online. They have now been together for almost 10 years and pretty happy from what I've gathered from my aunt. My point is online dating can work for some people but not everyone. However there is an increase of people meeting online and starting to date.

I completely agree. I too met my boyfriend on POF, and after many failed dates with the wrong people I finally met him and knew from the get go that things would go well. On our first date we sat there talking for hours, whereas I'm normally quite shy around new people. My sister set me up on a blind date with her boyfriend's best mate, and he was pretty much the same person as my sister's boyfriend. They thought we would go well together but we most definitely did not. It was incredibly awkward and I didn't know much about him at all, it didn't help that my sister wanted it to be a double date and took us to a noisy bowling alley. Anyone my friends or family tried to set me up with ended up being the complete opposite of someone I would get on with. Online dating helped me find someone with similar interests. We've been together 7 months now and it's a lot better than my previous experiences. Yes there are some weirdos, but those are everywhere.
