In the past, when you had a question you went to your best friend, wise father or perhaps your know-it-all neighbor for all sorts of wise advice. When it comes to love, it will always be difficult to step out and ask for advice, let alone share your feelings. Nowadays you can spare the hustle, since all you have to do is visit Reddit, where the community will provide the answers you need. Seriously, Redditters discuss literally everything. Thus it’s no surprise you also find a large number of topics dedicated to online dating. From useful tips for beginner players to actual surveys on the popularity of given dating sites – this treasure chest of user-submitted advice is all you need to prepare yourself for online dating.
We ourselves visited Reddit, and found some gold nuggets that are helpful in stepping up your dating game. For example, did you know that Redditters made a survey on what kinds of audience a dating site appeals to? According to them, OkCupid is angled towards those who seek a relationship, and visited by “run of the mill folks, mixed with extreme geeks, fetish types, poly couples, and intellectuals”. On the other hand, eHarmony is recommended if you are “heterosexual, Christian, a single parent and/or if you want to pop out babies”. That’s the kind of brutal honesty you can expect on Reddit. They also have a huge gallery of topics dedicated to individual features of given dating sites or helpful advice on how to avoid becoming depressed from unsuccessful attempts.
Reddit Nightmare Stories
Reddit is also a treasure trove if you are looking for a good-night horror story about dating (or just a chuckle at the expense of others). For example, a girl shared a story about a date where she ended up being handcuffed, but not in a way she expected. Her gallant got chased by the police for doing a stunt on the middle of the road, and then they were arrested because it turned out the car was stolen. The girl was eventually taken home by policemen, but the guy was extradited to another state for outstanding warrants.
Another girl followed her date to his apartment, where his buddies were right in the middle of shooting up heroin. And when she backed up in terror, she was labeled as “closed minded”. And lastly, let us quote our favorite:
“I met my date at a wine bar thinking we were going to have a regular person date. Things were going regular until he pulled out his Bible and started reading me all the parts where a woman's place is serving men.”
