Oh the many joys of online dating. When people don’t actually put what they want.
Plenty of Fish has all the options for what you are looking for:
And if that isn’t clear enough, the app provides with even more options:
- I’m looking for Casual Dating/No Commitment
- I want to date but nothing serious
- I want a relationship
- I am putting in some serious effort to find someone
- I am serious and I want to find someone to marry
In my opinion, it’s clearly spelled out for you if you want a serious relationship, to date someone or just casually hook up. If a guy has a profile that says looking for: Friends, Hangout, Looking for Casual Dating/No Commitment, then I’m going to assume he will want to just bang and probably never call… unless he liked the lazy sex and want more…which gosh that’s saying a lot more about him than me. I don’t mean let’s meet for drinks at a bar, I mean text me your address and a picture of your junk, AND PLEASE! don’t bother telling me your name because I honestly won’t remember and for sure won’t care.
Then there are profiles that say: Dating, I want to date but nothing serious. Those profiles tend to be a toss up. Maybe the guy does want to date but just isn’t ready for a relationship. Maybe he does want to go to the movies or a carnival. Chances are he wants to meet for drinks and then have sex but still, it’s a little more classy.
But the WORST is when a dude tries to pretend he is this great guy and says he genuinely wants to find an amazing girl and be in a relationship. Then has the audacity to ask “DTF.” NOWHERE on your profile did it seem like you were looking for just a hookup. Then the first thing out of your mouth is an obvious lie. Imagine if a girl said she’s just looking for a casual hookup and you think, “Wow! Finally someone who gets it!” BOOM, now she’s blowing up your phone everyday wanting to cook you dinner. That sounds like a complicated situation. No one wants a complicated hookup. It’s just annoying.
