The Los Angeles-based writer created the fake OKCupid profile, 'aaroncarterfan,' using a picture of her best friend who is a model, 'hoping to prove that there exists an online dating profile so loathsome that no man would message it,' despite how attractive the picture is.
But, despite the despicable persona she created, responses flooded in Reed wrote in her column on Cracked , suggesting some men really didn't have any limits when it came to women, sex and dating.
Try this one instead: Men and women are like. two very similar configurations of the same species, who are mutually benefited psychologically and emotionally by ongoing socialization with each other despite the fact that it's puzzlingly rare that any two of us get along for extended periods of time. So, I guess, like cats? Cats might be the easiest way to crystallize that analogy.
In trying to convince these men that they're better than this, my first strategy was to just say horrible shit. These messages are natural extensions of her profile, confirmation that you do not, I repeat, do not want to know this woman.
When it came to drinking and taking drugs, she wrote she did both often and said one of her main aims was 'keeping america american.'
Finishing the statement 'I'm really good at,' she wrote 'convincing people im pregnat (sic) lol,' and she ended 'the first things people usually notice about me' with, 'Prolly (sic) the first thing they notice is the drink Im throwing in there (sic) face LOL.'
'For example, I could extrapolate from my data that men have been so deeply socialized to value women solely on their appearance that many of them seem unable to take any other aspect of who she is, such as intelligence or capacity for self-reflection or suffocating douchiness, into account.'
But what if meeting her would have clear, lasting consequences? What if there was no such thing as a one-night stand with her? What if the effects of coming into contact with this woman were devastating and permanent?

As a child of the Internet and confirmed weirdo, imagine my relief when they finally took that last bastion of in-person awkwardness -- dating -- to my laptop instead. I've been using one of the major dating sites, OkCupid, on and off for about five years now. While it has its perks, being a woman on a dating site means immersing yourself in a disgusting cesspool of exposed nerves, unfiltered testosterone, and daily propositions to engage in sex acts so horrifying, I hadn't even heard of them before, and I'm from the Internet .
