Irrationally Enraged Neighborhood Attempts To Halt Wine Bar For Serving Online Daters

Wine Bar

Residents on New York City’s Upper West Side attempted to prevent a wine bar from serving alcohol in its outdoor seating area because too many “internet people” go there for dates after meeting online. Riposo 72 in Manhattan sparked controversy at a community board meeting (well, to the extent that those kinds of meetings can actually be controversial) out of supposed fear that children will be exposed to whatever peril the area’s mostly wealthy residents assume is stemming from Tinder and OKCupid. Riposo 72′s sidewalk cafe was approved in August and had to cut its capacity in half to compromise with the community board. Now, it wants to extend its liquor license to its outdoor area, and the neighborhood is inexplicably ragey about this. Resident Al Salsano told DNAinfo, “I have seen people say, ‘I met you on the internet,’ and you’re putting that on the sidewalk? I don’t want children walking near ‘internet people’ meeting.” Keep reading »

#OnlineDatingFail: It's Called Punctuation

The online dating scene is rough. Sure, it’s a great way to meet people, but we use the term “people” loosely, as some of the individuals we’ve come in contact with still seem to be in their primitive forms. Obviously, first impressions count … but not to these idiots.

Sender: 26, Male
Receiver: 28, Female
Site: OKCupid
Tip: While this guy refreshingly refrained from mentioning panties, masturbation and the suggestion to pee on each other in his initial message, he’s forgetting a little thing called punctuation. What gets me is that there’s one solo period just hanging out in the middle of his 54 various thoughts. Why even use a period at all? Run-on sentences are not a turn-on, so next time you message someone, you should probably watch this. Keep reading »

#OnlineDatingFail: Let's Have An Introductory Pee-On-Each-Other Meeting

The online dating scene is rough. Sure, it’s a great way to meet people, but we use the term “people” loosely, as some of the individuals we’ve come in contact with still seem to be in their primitive forms. Obviously, first impressions count … but not to these idiots.

Sender: 32, Male
Receiver: 28, Female
Site: OKCupid
Tip: I don’t care how kinky we say we are. Talking about “pee on me, fruit fuckin’” sex the first time you message someone is a surefire way to stay out of their pants. And think of something more original than “multiple partner havin’”… that’s just pure laziness. Keep reading »

Online daters are always eager to share their horror stories — and, oh, do we have them! But, I feel like if your bad OKCupid date makes the New York Post, you’ve reached a whole other echelon of horribleness. A 22-year-old St. John’s University student, who wishes to remain anonymous, shared the grizzly details of her date from hell, well, because the police were involved. That’s how bad. Keep reading »

okcupid scam

A New York City man has filed a lawsuit against OkCupid’s parent company IAC after a guy he met on the online dating site scammed him out of $70,000. Michael Z. Picciano insists in his lawsuit that OkCupid, which is a free site, doesn’t properly screen its subscribers and that they are creating a false image of a safe place to meet people.

Picciano, who is 65, met “genuineguy62″ (oh, the irony), whose said his real name was Bruce Thompson, about a year ago. Picciano said he trusted Thompson and felt safe with him. They hit it off, and chatted on the phone and on Skype.

Things got sketchy when Thompson explained that he was facing “unexpected fees he incurred in his dealings setting up a new computer parts business.” Cool story bro. Picciano was fooled, however, and wired Thompson $24,000. Thompson instructed him to send them to two different names located in Texas and Canada, but Picciano must have been to caught up in his feelings to take note of that glaring red flag.

#OnlineDatingFail: Sometimes Honesty Is Not The Best Policy

#OnlineDatingFail: Sometimes Honesty Is Not The Best Policy

The online dating scene is rough. Sure, it’s a great way to meet people, but we use the term “people” loosely, as some of the individuals we’ve come in contact with still seem to be in their primitive forms. Obviously, first impressions count … but not to these idiots.

Sender: 29, Male
Receiver: 26, Female
Site: OKCupid
Tip: When the second message someone sends you (after you haven’t responded to the first message) is about how badly they want their tongue between your legs, you should reply by telling them how badly you want absolutely nothing between theirs, because assholes should not be allowed to procreate.

Did someone send you a creeptastic or WTF message on a dating site? Take a screenshot of the message/your interaction and send it to us at onlinedatingfail@thefrisky.com. Include the info in the post above. (Don’t worry … if we choose to use it, it’ll be anonymous and we’ll make sure to guard all identifying information!)
