MOVIES NEVER MAKE PROFITS.

You're not meant to kill them.

Maybe that's why you're single.


"everytime I get close to a woman, they just turn into ghosts..."

An M Knight Shayamalan style thriller about a sensitive man who tells his therapist about how women keep "ghosting him". The whole thing is filmed in the therapists office except the final horrifying scene where you discover what he meant by ghosting.

Dear Hollywood, aayl1 and I would like £50,000 up front plus 2% net profit please.

Net gross mate, you never want to ask for net profit.

Ah gooseberry fool I just signed the contract on aayl1's behalf. So sorry mate!


To be fair giving you complete legal conservatorship has worked out pretty well thus far so we can forgive the odd hiccup.

Gender differtials on dating sites are actually hilarious

Me on Tinder for 2 months: not a single date

My almost 60 year old mother on some browser based site: gets 50 people message her and swaps numbers in under a week

:lol:

It makes you feel like actual dirt.

It's so exhausting swiping through 50 people, getting one match and then having them ghost you randomly. I give up.

Probably should do, I'd have more strawberry floating luck :lol:

The sad thing is I'm not even necessarily looking for a relationship, just trying to socialise but it just feels impossible.

It feels like if you don't live up to expected male gender norms and you live in a small town you may as well delete the app.

The only people I've dated on there before were from bigger cities close to me.

She's like me but with more hair on her head and less hair on her hands.

I can send you a selfie if it helps

ok if youve been on the apps for more than maybe a month at a time, the odds of seeing new faces in a smaller place reduces loads

as youve said too men outnumber women by a lot so the odds of your face at all coming across as a new one are smaller still

sad reality of the situation - women are the commodity and men the abundance

to stack it in your favour i would make sure first of all you have good pictures - avoid bad angle middle aged man selfies, avoid bathroom selfies - try to get pics dressed up and/or with other people (crop the people out, but leave a hint of their presence), this shows you are social, scrub up, and people like you enough to take pictures of or with you, even if all of this is an exaggeration of the truth

next up dont sit on any one app for too long, no heat after a few weeks, close the account and move on

consider buying the minimum cost subscription - usually this gives a few benefits like unlimited swipes, message visibility, checking your likes, gooseberry fool like that, things that stack it in your side as a swiper - i wouldnt really consider the expensive subs as theres no need

if there is any ref at all in your bio to anything that sounds downbeat get it gone, you need to come across as happy and entertaining, again even if its a lie

this isnt about changing who you are, thats still genuine, its about getting your foot in the door

Thanks for the advice, my first two pictures are: me with a gigantic smile in a suit and me in said suit posing in a photo booth with friends, so I think I have that sorted.

Also my bio is literally just a bullet point list of the kind of person I am, no negative stuff, just stuff I like and the fact I'm easy going etc

I think the sad fact of the matter is it's just the way things are. What sucks more is I've had at least 2 people stop talking to me when I've told them I work in childcare. Women don't have to deal with that kind of gooseberry fool

At least you’ve had the motivation to give the dating apps a go, I haven’t even got that far :lol: Well I’ve got partway technically, I need to add some photos to Hinge but then it wants you to add 6 and I struggle to think of 6 pictures I think I look decent in never mind other people, this is before I add a bio and the lot which would probably be another nightmarish situation :lol:
