Australian Woman Creates 'Worst Dating Profile in History' With Model Pic as Experiment
upi ^ | Jan. 7, 2014 | Evan Bleier

Posted on 01/09/2014 10:52:46 AM PST by nickcarraway

Columnist Alli Reed created the profile to prove that men will click on just about anything.

An Australian columnist paired a picture of her model best friend with the “worst fake dating profile in history” in an experiment to see just how low men will go if they see a pretty girl. As you can probably guess, she got a ton of responses.

Alli Reed was “hoping to prove that there exists an online dating profile so loathsome that no man would message it” but ended up discovering that some men just don’t have any limits.

As if her profile name, Aaroncarterfan, wasn’t bad enough, she indicated that she was mean, spoiled, lazy, racist, manipulative and a gold digger. Even a skill like being good at "convincing people im pregnant lol" and never wanting to be without "$$$, my car, my phone, keeping america american, my family, my friends, and Aaron Carter” weren’t enough to keep away the men.

"After reading 500 messages from men who apparently had just slapped their X on their keyboard a few times and pressed 'send', my already flimsy grasp on reality was loosening," Reed wrote.

Once the experiment proved beyond a doubt that men will message just about anyone, even if they are “mean-crazy, life-destroying-crazy or crazy-crazy," Reed called it off by giving some parting advice.

"You don't want someone who will pull out your teeth and then sue you for 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," she wrote. "STOP [EXPLETIVE] MESSAGING AARONCARTERFAN, YOU A------."

I did the opposite and put a male model picture in one profile. Same thing happened. Both men and women go for looks first no matter what they say.

Of course men will go for the crazy hot girl. Apparently the author doesn’t know the maxim “Crazy in the head, crazy in the bed.”

Hot and bitch are often fun in the sack. Not to mention many men don’t mind using a bitch. (They might feel bad if she is really nice)

I’m assuming that’s what they meant by racist in the article. This was clearly done by some liberal. Their opinion of what is racist is useless.

But if you eliminate “mean-crazy, life-destroying-crazy or crazy-crazy,” — then you have removed most of the good looking women are off the available list.

Her first mistake is assuming men would even read the profile.

They probably looked at her picture and fired off a response.

Her second mistake is assuming that men would read a horrible profile like that and not assume it was sarcasm.

Her entire definition of “worst profile ever (for a hot girl)” is far different than what she thinks it is for most men.

I think Richard Pryor said “if a chick is hot, anything short of having aids is cool. I’d like to see her again.”

I think women go for looks waaay way WAY more than men do which is why just about every female in my family and extended family almost always votes for the better looking candidate in every election, any election and it drives me absolutely nuts. They voted for Clinton and Obama twice although Romney almost got them but he “looked older than Obama” to quote my Aunt so they voted for the Marxist Kenyan again. Now she regrets voting for Obama!! Yeah surprise, no sh*t I told her. I don’t know what the hell it is, something in the chromosomes and the Marxists know this which is why almost always they pick the best looking candidate for POTUS no matter how freakin’ nuts he is. Look at Obama for example putting aside party lines: WHAT possible qualifications did they think that idiot had to run the country? He was basically a telemarketer. He made phone calls as a community organizer. What the hell is that? That’s why I’m really really hoping they are stupid enough to nominate Hillary with her Alfred E. Neuman face

After reading her profile, I would describe her as “feisty.” This would be a turn-on to most men.

Anyone who thinks this is the”worst profile ever” is an idiot and doesn’t understand male/female relationships.

I don't know who Aaron Carter is (apparently just some singer), but the rest of it doesn't sound all that awful to me.

My idea of a horrible profile would read more like a typical liberal person's resume.

Maybe we need a nationwide campaign using one of Hillary’s uglier pictures as yard signs. Just leave off the ugly to the bone message.

I agree -- "I campaigned for Barack and think he is the One" -- would send me running regardless of the picture. Worse than a Moonie...

I think a lot of people are making it simpler than it is. I think a lot of men would avoid an attractive woman with a really bad profile, but there are others that wouldn't.

In this case, though, she was so over-the-top a lot of men will think she's joking, and making fun of dating profiles. I think a lot of men might think the women who wrote this profile might be funny and have a good personality.

Remember Ferris Beuler? If she had said, “I also have a scorching case of herpes!” She would have seen the true depths that some men will plumb to meat a pretty woman.

The difference is that men will be drawn to a pretty woman despite her worthlessness; women will be drawn to a worthless man BECAUSE of it.

I never thought Clinton or Obama were the least bit attractive. Romney is a nice-looking man but I wouldn’t vote for him because of it. I’d vote for someone who looked like Danny DeVito if he were a true conservative patriot.

Her profile indicates an interest in casual sex. This pretty much trumps everything else and invalidates the experiment.

I created a stealth account at one site to view the profiles of a couple of ladies I know that have their info listed.

The photo I used was of some fat bald guy from Australia.

I think its had 3 hits in a few months.

If she wanted to create the worst profile ever she could have started by actually using a picture of an ugly woman. She still would have gotten responses, but a lot fewer to be sure.
Posting a picture of a hot woman and then posting outlandish things is not the worst profile ever. In fact, most guys who responded primarily did so because of the picture — superficial, but true. I know she was trying to make a point, but pretty on the outside does a lot to bewitch a man into overlooking the ugliness within.

Form is everything, bro.

Like when I used to post "We're all gonna die!!!!" and someone claimed they imitated me by writing "We are going to die!!"

Not the right number of exclamation points. "Going to" instead of "gonna". Dropped "all". "We are" instead of "We're".

It was a total mess.
