Justin bought Pylant a drink and the pair made plans for a follow-up date on Monday at the Truxton Inn in Washington, D. But Justin wasn’t just any guy, and their date wasn’t just any date. dude’s attempt at a 6-date night ― as told by the women — "While the rest of us were enthralled by the 'Bachelorette' finale on Monday night, six women in Washington became unwitting participants in an epic dating game of their own.What was about to unfold was an internet saga so dramatic and so ridiculous you’d say 'that could never happen' if you saw it in a movie. Lisette Pylant met up with Justin Schweiger for a first date over drinks that evening, only to discover 45 minutes in that he’d double-booked.Especially when it comes to men trying to write to women.For all the talk about “The End of Men” and how gender roles have been obliterated and women can write to men first, blahblahblah, here’s what ACTUALLY happened after four months: • The women as a group received over 20 times more messages than the men.“The expanded horizons offered by online dating don’t equal unrestricted access to a ready and waiting list of beautiful people.Every man and woman online still has criteria that must be met by people who want to date him or her, and every guy and girl is still in direct competition with every other person of their gender…Last week I shared my six pet peeves about middle-aged men's online dating profiles, and I promised everyone that this week I'd focus on middle-aged women's online dating profiles.
Justin Schweiger set up at a bar in Washington with six – count ‘em: six! (@Lisette Pylant)Alexandra Woody, the fifth woman in Schweiger's six-date series.Please, let's rid our profiles of these overused phrases once and for all: glass-half-full, sensual, drama-free, and easygoing.And these, let's omit these too: "I look 10 years younger than I am," "I hate talking about myself, but..." and any and all derivatives of "my friends/mom/ex/kids tell me that ..., like, “a guy told me he was looking for a girlfriend by next year so he’d have someone to split rent with.” Then there was the charmer who told his date about the time he “got wasted, peed and mopped it up with his clothes, and then wore them.” Um, yeah., we’d like to assume you know better than to make mistakes like these.Whereas before a man just needed to be the best looking guy at work to get a date with a colleague, now he needed to be in the top 10% of all men to get a date with one of the women in his city.” This is the double-edged sword of online dating.
