It is through this psychological phenomenon that such wondrous myths and bullshit have manifested in the collective subconscious. It is through this that almost four million people a day still believe what they read in the Daily Mail, why experts still wrongly tell us that we swallow insects in our sleep, and why my Mom told me yesterday that full fat milk will give me cancer.
Disclaimer: I understand that there are many people out there genuinely looking for a partner using such websites, and this series of articles is NOT aimed at those people. I, in no way, aim to lead people on for the sole purpose of emotional trauma or grief. I am careful with my selection process to only choose people who willingly admit they are only looking for casual sex, and I have a vetting procedure to make sure that this is true (which won’t be uploaded for everyone to see). If any people ask me outright if I really am who I say I am, then I am honest and tell them the truth.
And with that, let’s begin:
The Curious Case of BeerNBongs
Within minutes of stepping into the world of POF as a reasonably attractive woman, I was greeted with multiple messages consisting of either of ‘hi’ or ‘u ok?’. I’m not sure how many women enjoy this type of generic banter, but I wanted my Romeo to at least put in a bit of effort, maybe something original and unique? Low and behold, that’s when BeerNBongs waddled unsteadily into my life.
Ask anyone over the age of 18 what they think of sex and the answer will be largely universal; sex is pretty awesome. That’s a statement we can all agree with, no manipulation or psychological duping required. But if we throw in a vague sexual statement, mix it up with a little confirmation bias, spread it across the front page of the Daily Mail and mix it all up into a froth which looks suspiciously like jizz, that’s when people really start believing whatever shit is thrown at them. I wanted to test this notion, but of course, I didn’t have access to a readership of four million, and I only really wanted access to the gullible perverts within that demographic. So I scoured the seedy back streets of the internet in search of the nastiest, most deranged subcultures in existence today. Finally, under the orange street lamp of my Firefox window it appeared to me: Plenty of Fish. The most perverted website I could find.
On next week’s Plenty of Catfish: I run into my old friend of mine named Jeff who is now calling himself, Loveking60, apparently!
