Single GTA Women: Watch For This Man

I saw this story on the news last night and am passing it on.

This is 29-year-old Robert Charles Henry, who also goes by the name “Anthony Henry”

He is 6’ 2”, weighing about 190 pounds, with an athletic build, short black hair and a thin chinstrap beard and goatee.

He is accused of forcing a woman he met on PlentyofFish into his car, threatening to kill her, and hitting her with his car.

Police believe there may be more victims.

He drives a 2001 Silver Lexus with license plate BSDY 927.

If you have seen this man, or have been unfortunate enough to meet him, please contact Toronto police at 416-808-5204, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at 222tips.com, or by texting TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).

Oh, Tinder

I love Tinder. I love that it’s a complete time-waster. I love that it’s shallow and based solely on looks. I love the gratification I get when I am matched with someone I actually find attractive. And of course, I really really love seeing what some people consider to be good dating etiquette.

For those of you who are not familiar with Tinder, it is described as “the new way to meet people around you.” It works by searching the area around you using GPS to find members of the opposite sex also on Tinder. Once a potential match comes up you have the option to anonymously “like” or “dislike” that person by swiping their picture to the right (“like”) or left (“dislike”).

searching!

 
 

a “recommendation”

 
 
Note in the above image the “shared friends” link. Since Tinder connects to your Facebook account, you can see whether you and your potential match have any friends in common.

If you like someone and they like you back, you get an alert that you have a match and can start chatting with that person. If you dislike someone they can’t talk to you, even if they liked you.

my matches!

 
 
I met somebody once from Tinder – he wasn’t my type, and although I tried to keep it friends-only because we had similar interests, even that didn’t end up working for me. He did buy me a lot of drinks though, so that was cool.

I still “Tinder” (yes, I just used it as a verb) and thought I would share some of the more memorable people I’ve seen on it. Below are examples of the type of profile pictures you should not use on a dating/hookup site if you ever hope to get laid:

not even sure what to say about this winner

 
 

it’s hard to resist a man who kills shit!

 
 

not the most flattering pic, he looks constipated

 
 

no, no, and no

 
 

ew, gross

 
 

sexy!

 
 

I hate robots. Or whatever this is supposed to be.

 
 
It’s not all bad though. For example, this guy made me laugh:

Tinderella – get it!?

 
 
This is clever:

 
 

The best though is this guy I was matched with – if I was single I would have been all over this beautiful man:

drool……

 
 
I could look at him all day….and imagine so many things….

I Can See Why You’re Single

More winning.

1. Oh god, the “hi and may I” guy is back

But this time he dropped the “may I” so I give him some props for that.


2. Not only is this a complete grammar fail….

…but he repeated it twice, and in less than 12 hours no less.


3. Random alert


At least it’s good he got right to the point?


4. WTF


I can’t say a man has ever wanted to make me his bubbly queen before.

5. Actually, you’re wrong….


…I am immensely scared of your recklessness towards correct spelling.

I Can See Why You’re Single

Online dating offers so much amusement sometimes….

1. At least he’s persistent

 

I wonder if the repeated messages ever work for him? I guess maybe eventually he wears you down so much that you just say yes?

2. Uhm, what?

When did proper grammar and punctuation become uncool?

3. Only a somewhat clean woman required

I laughed out loud at this one. You only need to be fairly clean to date this guy – also I hope he means “flexible” and not “fixable” – and I wonder what he hopes to introduce on the first date? The suspense would kill me.

4. I just had to ask

I think he confused this site with a BDSM hookup site. Or he just needs a puppy.

5. This text from my incredibly boring date on Sunday

I threw up in my mouth a bit when he said “brown sugar.”

I Can See Why You’re Single

I’ve decided that the world of online dating has too much potential humour for me to ignore it – thus, I’ve decided to start compiling all my favourite messages, profiles, anything related to online dating where I’ve been like “what the fuck is wrong with this person?”

Here’s a few to get started from the past week (images blurred to protect the retarded):

1. From the profile of a man who contacted me:

What a charmer!

2. From my inbox:

Why are so many men obsessed with eyes?

And “a relationship that never ends” just sounds creepy to me.

3. Again from my inbox:

May you stop asking if you may? Yes, you may.

That doesn’t even make sense!

4. From a profile of a man who messaged me:

I would rather have boring and “mediore” (I’m assuming he means mediocre) than “douchey”.
5. Inbox again:

Dude! I didn’t know it was still the 1980s!

6. What is with guys?

I wonder if this line has worked for him in the past?

Last I checked there was no “us” – and I don’t think there will be.

7. He's a winner

Yep, this was one the best one I’ve received yet because there was no “hello, I saw your profile and thought I would send you a quick message,” it was just….this.


I can’t wait to see what else comes out of the woodwork,the comic possibilities are endless.
