So if you’re an avid JenAndMen reader, and have seen I’m Not Interested In You, I’m Interested In Fixing Your Online Dating Profile, then you’ll know what a huge hypocrit I am by the time you finish reading this post.
The other day, I was HORRIFIED by a Plenty of Fish message. Unlike my usual array of complimentary gushes, this one was a guy who clearly never gets laid.
The message was from an incredibly mediocre-looking guy, with an even less exciting profile. I opened up the message, skimmed it like I always do, and immediately felt my jaw drop.
I recently made a new friend who I’ll call Peter. We were talking about JenAndMen and he brought up the well-known phenomenon that nice guys finish last. (Now I’m totally singing the Greenday song.) After a few minutes of listening to his concerns, I came up with a great little experiment that I’m sure my female readers will yell at me for even suggesting. I told him to pretend to be an asshole for a month, and see how many dates he gets. (For the record: He’s not going to go sleeping around and breaking hearts. He’s simply going to find a girl he likes and try a different approach to getting her to settle down with him.)
I will share our pre-experiment conversation and then our findings at the end of the month…
