I find it incredibly disconcerting that one of my Japanese female coworkers told me that it was “really dangerous” to use online dating and that she met all her boyfriends the “natural way.” I essentially gave her the “are you fucking kidding me look?” and said, “Well, some people can’t afford to meet people in bars and other great places.” Ffs she has no idea but she was judging a two time rape survivor who KNEW both her rapists. So, I’m just wondering, is it more dangerous to talk to men on the internet who don’t know your address, phone number, full name, and email address who you can block from ever contacting you again or is it more dangerous to meet men who are in the process of getting drunk or who solicit you in dark corners?
Plus, I don’t really want to date any of the Japanese men in my town. They all look either super entitled and cocky or they have really poorly dyed hair. Yeah, that really works on me.
Then she had the audacity to suggest I start dating my coworker who lives on door down from me. She gave me the weirdest fucking look when I told her I wasn’t attracted to him. He’s like my brother, gross.
People should really keep their bullshit ideas of relationships to themselves unless I directly fucking ask for them.
