Most online dating sites let you see who’s been looking at your profile (and they’ll let you browse privately, without showing up in anyone’s records if you prefer). Anyway, sometimes I’ll notice the same guy showing up in my “who’s viewing you” list, day after day. I usually just ignore it, assuming the guy is trying to figure out something smart to say in his opening email or maybe he’s just really absentminded and keeps forgetting that he’s already checked me out.
But there was this one guy who kept showing up in my “viewing you” list who looked interesting. He didn’t hotlist me or show any interest. Other than that he kept showing up in my “viewing you” list. And since I really liked his profile I went out of my way to write a nicer/cooler than normal introductory message.
That was 3 days ago. Since then he’s showed up in my who’s viewing you list again. But I haven’t heard from him. So I’m thinking maybe- brain damage?
I know it’s silly to even care, but seriously, if a guy just wants to look at profiles and not contact anyone why wouldn’t he use the privacy feature. That way he could look at the same ones over and over and not seem like a creepy, brain-damaged jerk. Which is what I think of him now.
Oh, and for the record, I use the privacy feature. Always have.
