How to Meet Atheist Social Justice Queers (Because Online Dating Is for Losers)

Posted on | July 14, 2016 | 29 Comments

OKCupid confirms every stereotype:

OkCupid used data from nearly 200,000 profiles for its Words and Politics analysis, which also found that liberals looking for love are vegetarians and conservatives like steak. . . .
“Like the outdoors or going to the shooting range? So do a majority of conservatives interested in love,” OkCupid said. “Liberals looking for love prefer museums, yoga, and crying.”
The analysis also found liberals tend to list “The Daily Show, Broad City, NPR, podcasts, and weed” on their profiles, while conservatives mention “Jesus, faith, guns, and Marines.”
Other terms commonly listed on liberal profiles included “Atheist,” “Social Justice,” “Feminist,” and “Queer.” Common conservative terms included “Country,” “Fishing,” “Old fashioned,” and “C.S. Lewis.”
OkCupid said the majority of its users are liberal, and 50 percent of its total users report that they could not date someone with opposing political views.

Why are the majority of OKCupid users liberal? Because they’re losers. Who wants to date an atheist social justice feminist queer?

This is what I keep trying to explain about online dating: If somebody is trying to score a hookup via the Internet, this is an admission of failure to find a relationship among people they actually know in real life. Every online dating site is a toxic pool of weirdos and rejects.

Are there any sane, normal people on OKCupid? If so, why? So you can browse through the profiles and laugh at what pathetic losers they are?

    Don’t be quite so hard on online dating: it’s how I met my wife.

    I met my conservative husband online, but that was way back in 2001 when online dating was new and free.

    I was married with a year from the day I put my profile up on AOL.

    Same here. Met my husband on in June 2000. We got married in February 2001. But things were different then.

    Me, I met my wife the old fashioned way: in person. Of course, back in 1979, there was no such thing as online dating.

    Only losers want to date liberals. They still need a mummy and daddy.

    Actually, I’d blame much of this on urbanization and constant moving. In The Good Ol’ Days, people lived in the same areas for a long time, and frequently married people that they knew from before high school. Now, people come and go so quickly that these long-term relationships don’t really have as much of a chance to develop.

    Being liberal doesn’t help adjudicated toddler stalkers that are in default. They can’t seem to get a date using online dating because of Google.

    My best friend said that he wanted a woman who was ‘liberal’ in bed.

    Of course, he’s been divorced twice . . . .

    Only a real man can handle a real woman…. and a liberal woman isn’t worth the investment of time or energy. When a real woman sees a liberal man, she ducks out the side door to avoid him.

    Who lists “crying” in their preferences? I mean seriously, it’s so hilarious and pathetic *I* don’t know whether to laugh or cry for the future.

    I think as a man (and I use that word loosely), if you wish to confirm your progressive feminist credentials, you must admit to being able to cry easily.

    Reminds me of the couple in Best In Show, who met at Starbucks.

    Not the same Starbucks, of course. They both went to different ones across the street from each other but they’d spot each other through the windows…

    Yeah, that whole being in touch with your feminine side thing.

    Personally, I find it irritating that somebody would assume that I have a feminine side.

    Does it count for “crying” if I get misty-eyed during the opening scene of Patton?

    Urbanization and deracination (rootlessness) are closely associated with family decline. Furthermore, young people who have grown up being constantly online suffer from a double handicap — fewer “real world” friends and diminished social skills. Honestly, I think a lot of the “rape culture” hysteria among young feminists reflects this. Many young people simply don’t know how to behave themselves in normal human interactions — no courtesy, no graciousness, no charm or tact — and this contributes to the increasing climate of sexual paranoia.

    I did qualify my statement – cries easily.

    You have to be careful not to paint the entire online dating community with the loser brush. I too met my lovely wife through an online dating service. It was part of my broader strategy to engage with the opposite sex and, yes, I’m happy to admit prior failings to find a relationship among people in real life. We can’t all be debonair ladies’ men like our esteemed host.

    I do, however, think that the whole online dating business has regressed somewhat into something that simply facilitates the hookup culture. In my day…the hookup sites were pretty dam obvious in that they would use such monikers as adultmatchmaker (is that still running?). Nowadays it’s hard to tell the difference between the looking for love and looking for sex sites – especially since those two terms have been effectively conflated by our progressive brethren.

    With the current SJW atmosphere starting to pervade the military, I’d say sticking to the non-moving things is safer, to boot.

    I get all sniffly when Max Max’s dog gets it in Road Warrior.

    Then I arm up and go looking for lowlife scum to shoot.
