Why do people use online dating just for an ego boost/attention?


I’m not too bummed about these kind of people as there’s many others out there, but I just don’t understand the women (which isn’t a ton) who will respond and talk to you for a bit and them when you ask them out, they’re like sorry I’m not looking to date, I don’t feel comfortable meeting people off the internet, I’m looking for friends, I don’t wanna get hurt, etc.

I mean not to sound entitled to a date but if you have no intention of meeting the person in the first place then why bother responding back to them in the first place? It’s both a waste of your time and theirs. It’s like are you shocked that someone you talk to off a dating site would eventually ask. If I message people then I clearly have an interest in meeting with them and playing it by ear. No use in responding to people who like me that I don’t like back only to give them false hope and eventually have them ask me out.

It’s like if you’re that desperate that you have to go online to boost your ego/self esteem then that’s pretty pathetic and sad.

They should have an option under the intent sections saying just looking for attention/an ego boost because that’s really all they’re doing lol.
