Diary of an internet dating troll
The series is also called as the Utterly Lame series.
Author Tim has written this series as a parody of the Wimpy Kid novels written by author Jeff Kinney, but has added a few fantasy twists in it.
I have a theory on why it’s so hard to find love online. But, when we go out on an actual date, we are disappointed because we don’t get the same emotional sensation that we get when we watch a movie. You have to sell yourself so that others want to go out with you and see what you’re all about. Online dating is hard because we are “browsing” profiles, making judgments based only on a photo.
By then, the pool of quality partners has shrunk, and they are left with mostly “undesirables.”Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not saying it’s only women who are the problem. Television and movies have brainwashed us to want and expect one thing. Many profiles have the same types of photos and say the same thing, i.e. I love to travel…” It takes skill to write a compelling dating profile.
Whatever happened to going out a few times and getting to know a person before deciding if there is a connection or chemistry?
I think a lot of good relationships never get off the ground because they are never given the chance to develop. Don’t get me started with this one because I’ll tell you right now, I hate texting.
Author Tim originally hails from Manchester, but today he lives in London.Now that everyone and their mother has a smartphone; people don’t talk anymore. The first-way people communicate on an online dating site is by instant messaging or email.Then, instead of exchanging numbers and having a real conversation, the texting begins and continues until the first date and beyond.When I was dating, I used the first date for two things, 1) to make sure the woman was who she said she was in her online profile and 2) to see if there was any chemistry between us.If we had a pleasant enough time, I would typically go out again.
