I am now 1oo% convinced that internet dating is a fool's paradise.
Several months ago, when I still lived in Vegas, I created a profile on true.com. When I moved back home, I amended the profile to reflect my change of address.
Yesterday I received an "I'm interested" message from this woman. Her name is Jacklyn, and as you can see from her profile photo, she has been arrested for prostitution. She uses this as an apparent selling point.
Yes, today's profile pic is yesterday's mug shot. Her actual profile photo is just her head, but when you click "photos" this is what you get.
Okay, I'm curious. Is she a woman with a great sense of humor who's making this up; someone who is honest and willing to confess to her past mistakes; or is she a prostitute using true.com to drum up some additional business? Another SLIGHT possibility is that she's the victim of a cruel practical joke, which is why I obscured her face and last name for this post.
I'm of the opinion that she's a whore, using our beloved internets as her cyberpimp. For example, she says she's looking for men aged 18-42. For an attractive 26-year-old, that's casting a rather large net. But if she's a cumpster, why stop at 42? Is she saying she won't fuck a 43-year-old with cash? What kind of a hooker is that? She's single-handedly setting back the art of strumpetry a hundred years.
Uh, if I go on a "date" with her, does anyone have five-hundred dollars I can borrow?
