My fish dating
Three or four weeks later I came back to Bumble, Tinder, and OKCupid.However, I decided I was going to try to take the process a little more seriously, less mindless swiping, really try to meet someone etc., so I decided to change a couple of my photos so people would REALLY know what they were getting into as far as my personal views.The twitter thread describing that situation can be found here but the TL; DR of that is basically a guy saw my political opinions in my profile and started referring to Black people as “chimps” who “deserve to die” and saying my generation was what was wrong with the country.I reported him multiple times, he only got a temporary ban, and when he was back I harassed POF on social media until they fully removed him.I added these two pictures to my profiles: I felt like these photos served a few purposes.
After that, there were others I’d met in real life — a widower, a couple of recently divorced men.
Not many serial killers from New Hampshire, I reasoned.
“Call me.”I looked up the telephone prefix: New Hampshire.
I can accept some political differences with a person I’m dating, and normally I wouldn’t really care who you voted for in a presidential election, but my fears and concerns about this upcoming administration go beyond any typical difference of opinion/political party/etc (let’s be serious, Donald Trump is only pretending to be a republican anyway, so this isn’t my way of saying I won’t date republicans).
Most of my professional work has been in low income and minority communities so I have strong feelings about how his presidency will impact those populations.
