Hey Guys! Did You Know That Wearing a Ball Cap in Your Photo…

…automatically lowers your IQ by about 50 points?

I closed all my profiles, but Match still keeps mine open until my 3 month subscription runs out in October (at which time I will BE on their ass like the proverbial flaming bag of dog poop if they auto-bill me for another 3 months, since I cancelled the subscription a month ago!).  I’ve been getting lots of “winks” from guys in ball caps.  I’ve been getting emails telling me that God has told men in ball caps to marry me.  A man in a ball cap emailed to let me know he wanted to shower me with rose petals and massage baby oil into my feet.  A man in a ball cap who I suspect is Nigerian told me he would love to meet me, if only he could find the money to get to America to do it.

A man in a ball cap with his arm around a slinky blonde too old to be his daughter emailed to tell me I was invited to his tailgate party.  A 26 year old man (I’m 49)  in a ball cap that had “IWFU” embroidered on the front emailed to tell me how “hot” I am and that he didn’t know a woman as “hot, sexy, and intelligent” as I am lived in my city.  Can you guess what “IWFU” means?  I can…

Boys, wearing a ball cap in a primary, okay in ANY online dating profile photo, causes me to immediately click past your profile.  I don’t even read it.  That  sound I just heard might have been YOU, my knight in shining armor (and ball cap) thundering down my street on a well-caparisoned charger, but if I’d been interested enough to take a look, the ball cap on top of your helmet would have immediately sent me for a camera so I could post your photo on Facebook for my weekly caption contest.

Ball caps in online dating profile photos mean TWO things to me:

1.  You’re bald and ashamed of it.

2.  You’re too stupid to realize that wearing a ball cap in an online dating profile photo assists with the presumption that you’re bald and ashamed of it.

Men who wear a ball cap in an online dating profile photo are the equivalent of a woman with a big dog sitting in her lap while she peers out from behind the dog and smiles oh-so-coyly into the camera.  Like the big dog, the ball cap is hiding something, and that something may be a lot more than a lack of hair.

Jus’ sayin’!

I also think it’s really interesting that one of the suggested tags for this post was “Ohio.”  Amazing.  Two of those men WERE from Ohio.

  1. If you really want to delete yourself from match, you have to take down your profile. This is a cumbersome process, which I forget how to do, but it can be done. That’s the only way you’ll be able to stop balding men in ball caps from winking at you.
    Good luck. BTW – I think half the men who do this – wear ball caps and wink – aren’t paying members of match and wink because they can’t send messages. If you read their profiles, you’ll see that a lot of them try to disguise their email addresses in thieir essays! So, they’re saying “I’m cheap and I’m bald, here’s my email address – you contact me, and send a picture, if I think you’re worthy of wiping the sweat off my bald head, I’ll write back to you.”

  2. I forgot I could hide it. I just went in and did that. 🙂 The emails were amusing, but I’m of the opinion that dating sites are just a waste of time. I have yet to meet a man from any of the three I’ve used who isn’t in over his head with baggage, intimacy issues, disorders, and a host of other things too ugly to dredge back up.

    I’d rather be alone than in a bad relationship. I get lonely, and I don’t want to spend the rest of my life alone, but I’d rather do that than expend all the time, energy and money necessary to “date.”

    If I bump into Mr. Right in my daily travels, great. If not, I’ve got plenty to keep me busy and happy.
