OkCupid - 3rd Time No Charm

I've said it before and I'll say it again, people need to pay attention to profiles on dating apps. Most of the time they are quite telling in regards to whether or not a conversation needs to happen. I've seen plenty that make me immediately swipe left, no matter how attractive the person may be. Today I present to you someone who didn't quite understand that a boring first message and not paying attention to a profile proves that the third time is not always a charm.

This is a clear sign of insanity right? Attempting the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. The fact that he doesn't even seem to acknowledge the response to each message makes it even more worrisome. I'm certain he saw that there was a response. Adding sexy didn't make a response any more likely though. Needless to say you should all be aware that some people literally can't take a hint, even when you explicitly state what's wrong.

Having a profile filled out on OkCupid is a little more lengthy than Tinder because it isn't just an empty bio box. There are specific questions that you can answer which means people can find out plenty about you. The only thing required is that you answer the questions and fill it in. On top of that if you actually read someone else's answers you can find out about them. Is it really that hard to ask, "Hey, I noticed you like kayaking. Where is your favorite spot to kayak?" I mean it really seems to be an issue with common sense because it turns out common sense isn't all that common.

With being so connected it seems like a lot of people just want things to happen without any effort. It really only takes a minute or two tops of reading a profile to then figure out what you could possibly send as a first message. If someone isn't willing to put forth any effort to try and start a meaningful conversation with you what makes it worthwhile to try and have a relationship of any sort? Don't get me wrong, it takes effort from both sides but if there isn't a start then nothing happens.

What do you all think of this guy? Does he have the right approach or do you think he'll constantly send the same message over and over again to a handful of women hoping for a different result? Let me know what you think in the comments below. (:
