Crushed

  • I have spent way too long thinking about these stupid prompts and how to best convey my personality through them. I still have not figured this out. Do I want to come off as quirky? Am I actually quirky, or do I just want to be quirky? Do I want to come off as normal? Am I actually normal, or am I just afraid of scaring people off? (Clearly I’m very concerned about false advertising)
  • What photos do I use? I just went through a quarter life crisis and changed my hair many times in the last year. Do I even look the same? I mean, sort of? But what if the guy who liked my picture with pink hair only likes Annie with pink hair? Or what about the guy who liked my picture with bangs — is he only into the version of me who had bangs?
  • If you have a group photo as your first photo, you’re out. Are you trying to mislead someone? If you are, it’s certainly not going to be me. Nuh uh. Not today. Honestly, even if all the people in the photo are attractive, I still need to reject it ON PRINCIPLE.
  • Account Executive, Account Manager, SDR, BDR, Mr. I work in tech sales. Pass.
  • If you don’t show your teeth in any of your photos, I immediately assume you have no teeth and therefore give you an x. Kidding about the teeth, but also not kidding. Next.
  • If you’re listed as ‘Moderate’. What does that even mean? Next.
  • If the answers to your prompts:
    -Have spelling errors
    -Mention tequila or shots
    -Make you sound like you’re looking for a manic pixie dream girl to show up and change your life. Let me save you some time & go watch 500 Days of Summer.
    -If you leverage the voice recording as an answer to a prompt. Like listen, I’m not saying it’s 100% a deal breaker, but I’m telling you I’m not only judging you on the answer but I’m judging you by the sound of your voice. Is that too judge-y? Probably.
