One woman was determined to prove that some men would really click on anything online, so she created the worst fake dating profile in history.
Columnist Alli Reed used a picture of her model best friend to create a fake profile to test what limits, if any, men had when it came to online dating.
Going by the screen name “AaronCarterFan,” the OkCupid profile included a picture of Reed’s best friend Rae Johnston and a series of answers to several questions. Reed’s objective was “probe that there exists an online dating profile so loathsome that no man would message it.”
In her fake profile, Reed made sure to come across as horrible, mean, spoiled, lazy, racist, and manipulative as possible.
But the fact that she wrote that she’s really good at “convincing people im pregnat [sic] lol,” and that the first thing people notice about her is the drink she is throwing in their face, didn’t stop swarms of men from messaging “AaronCarterFan.”
The account received more than 150 messages in just 24 hours.
Reed gave some men the benefit of the doubt and figured they didn’t read her profile. Her new goal then became to have these men to stop messaging her back.
“I was going to make AaronCarterFan come across as so abhorrent that not even the kinds of dudes who comment on YouPorn videos would respond to her,” she wrote.
Reed responded to messages with horrible messages, including admitting that she lied to a judge about being pregnant in order to get out of doing community service. But still, some men just kept sending messages.
“After reading 500 messages from men who apparently had just slapped their semi-erect penis on their keyboard a few times and pressed ‘send,’ my already flimsy grasp on reality was loosening,” she wrote.
Reed eventually ended her social experiment with a message to her respondents:
“You don’t want someone who will pull out your teeth and then sue you for your child support, you deserve someone who will make you want to be better than you are, and will want to be better because of you. You deserve happiness, and love, and adventure. Be brave. Don’t settle,” Reed wrote. “STOP F---_ING MESSAGING AARONCARTERFAN, YOU A------.”
