Not to sound insensitive,but there's nothing overtly ominous about those posts. Just sounds like a raucous,albeit sllow-witted, frat boy.

Seconded on the 'can see anything particularly worrying about the guys profile'. He doesn't sound like a serial killer. Hell, he doesn't even sound like a creep. He just sounds like a typical no commitments kind of guy, also a little bit reckless and stupid, who might take you out for a date and then never call you again.

I've seen way, way worse on dating profiles.

I don't see how any of that counts as Dark Humor, in fact his profile seems so normal that he may have copied it from other people.

ciberido: Freudian_slipknot: Any guy who self-describes as "nice" is 95% likely to be a misogynistic asshole.

There's no bigger red flag, in my experience.

To all the guys who ask, "Why don't girls like nice guys?":

This is why.


Way to miss the point. Or to prove it.

Girls like GENUINELY nice guys just fine. It's the ones who pull the "OMG I'm a nice guy why don't girls like me" that always have major personal issues that make them undateable. You're not a nice guy just because you say you are. And guys who can only describe themselves as "nice" generally have nothing to offer except a weird expectation that they're entitled to a date for existing.

So now we're expected to assess people's emotional/psychological stability by the stupid/boring/odd shiat they put on their Facebook page?

I'm gonna go ahead and save time by assuming that most people are stupid and boring, without going to the effort of reading their nonsensical ramblings on Facebook.

swahnhennessy: Meaning there are women out there desperate enough to go for that. Well, that's what poor judgment gets you. If you're lucky, you just realize he's a stunted man-child and possibly retarded after the first date. If you're unlucky, you end up dead.


The desperation stems from the overwhelming number of loser men.

At my work there's a guy in his 20's with a beard about a foot long, real scrawny, dark clothes, etc. He looks like a ZZ Top wannabe. I think women are desperate because most guys (myself excluded of course) are losers who don't take care of themselves.

".But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked. ..Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: ..We're ALL mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.' ..How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice. ..You MUST be,' said the Cat, ..or you wouldn't have come here.'

I trust that the writer of this article realizes that this is actually a Lewis Carroll quote and not actually a sign of imminent mental collapse (at least, I sure hope not, since it's been my email sig for about eight years now).

Unfortunately, if those are the best quotes they can come up with from the guy's page, all this demonstrates is that some things can't be predicted or prevented by looking at someone's Facebook.

rushthatspeaks: 45 and 30? Trashy.


Desperate is more like it. Desperate and now dead. The FA is not very detailed, but it sounds like she broke the first rule of on-line dating. First couple of dates: meet in a public place, let everyone know where you will be, and time-limit the date. Never, ever go home with a man on a first date!

OK:

1) I'm a pretty retarded dude. I don't know what to say about myself. I'm a WICKED nice guy (to most people) and like to go out and have fun (sometimes a little too much - and I've got the bruises to prove it), then I wake up, laugh it off and do it all over again. I love hanging out with my friends and doing what ever won't get us arrested (well, most of the time).

If you're thought is, "This guy sounds fun to date, you're retarded.

2) Man who murdered online date had 900 Facebook friends

Is this really a thing now? If I commit a crime, it'll be entered as to how many online friends I have? Because my old MySpace page had all 4 Ninja Turtles and President Clinton.

Nana's Vibrator: 2. Having 900 Facebook friends is desperate narcissism


Or you actually joined FB when it was a college-only site. The original idea wasn't to be a slightly sleazier version of OKCupid mixed with MySpace with some Craigslist thrown in, it was to be a tool to help you meet people from your classes, mostly for things like, y'know, getting notes from lectures you missed and so on.

Short version: people that got profiles in the first couple of years auto-friended everyone that they shared a class with. If you went to a public Uni you'd hit 900 easily before you graduated.

Even in the modern iteration, if you're something of a slacker and have had four or five jobs in as many years or moved a few times you've probably made enough casual acquaintances, neighbors, co-workers, etc to hit that number without being particularly overly social.

Well shiat. If I decide to go on a murderous rampage I'll be held up to the fact that I have no online friends. Bummer.


There's no way to win, especially with journalists who are all wannabe CSIs in their spare time. One guy is suspicious because he had "900 Facebook friends, clearly he is psychopathic and spends too much time online!" The next one will have three Facebook buds, and will "obviously be a suspicious loner who couldn't even connect via the anonymity of the Internet."

These guys know nothing; and even the experts are guessing half the time.

Do you mean if they self-describe as nice spontaneously, or in answer to a yes-or-no question? Because if you ask somebody "Are you nice?" the vast majority of people will say yes, simply because the alternative would imply that they are mean or cruel.


As in when asked to describe themselves, they say "I'm a nice guy."

Or that's the first thing in their "about me."

I've done a bit of internet dating in my day, and anyone who uses that phrase seems to have some really serious issues - like blaming the entire female sex on their personal dating failures.

This is a pretty stupid contextual trick, really. If Mary Poppins killed her e-date, she would also, in retrospect, have a Facebook profile that reads like something by Attila the Hun.
