Ew. I know that type. At least she was in Florida so you weren't actually subjected to a date with her.

Also, Mayo - I thought you thought "childish" was a desirable quality in women.

It is pretty easy to tell when it is a bot. Bots normally reply fairly quickly to messages, wouldn't have an okcupid profile linked to a phone number, and aren't very specific in their replies. As for the age I am not 100% sure but her profile is pretty lengthy and she gives very detailed information in which bots don't normally do. I don't think a bot would know the name of my elementary school from 18 years ago that no longer exists.

Wait, how does she know this?


Also, bots have changed with the times and become more sophisticated. Some of the names you gave have very short profiles, with 3-numbers following their names, which is recognized as a form of bot-dom by the mods.

Why would she link her phone number to her profile?


I have been on here for a while now and I can't remember a bot ever sending a message to me. Bots usually have almost nude supermodels as their profile pictures, are interested in casual sex and will have a link posted on their profile that links to a cam site.

How would you know they were bots if you don't respond long enough for them to ask for your credit card? And no, they don't all use nude supermodels as profile pics, or have the cam-link on their profiles anymore. Your intel in very dated.

She works there. She's real. Bots aren't that smart. I'm not posting every single text that we sent each other to prove it.

How could she know the name of a school you went to that no longer exists?  You say, she works there. So, the school does exist still?

How did she know that you went there? Did you tell her your name, your hometown?

If she doesn't know you, she must be getting something from you, to make these statements.

You have no picture. You're a bot.


Dec 29, 2012 12:47pm

Why is this such a point of contention?


Dec 29, 2012 12:49pm

Seems to me that she's just trying to get a better idea of this person, because the response you've shared with us from her almost sound bot-like. 


Dec 29, 2012 12:53pm

Wow. Am I being trolled here? I talked to her for a day and she not once mentioned anything about even getting together. She stopped replying at the time a real human goes to bed and replies when she wakes up. She doesn't work at the actual elementary school I went to. There were three different elementary schools (which she named) in that town and she told me about the one I went to being used for something else. I'm not explaining anything else.

I don't understand why you're so worked up about it. Does it really matter if she was real or a bot?

^ not at all, to me.

He's criticizing responses from her, but doesn't actually know who he's talking to, which is all I'm saying. He's making lots of assumptions.

It wouldn't be the first time that a "girl" was talking with a guy, and not at all as she represented herself, including that she might not be a girl at all.

^^  You don't have to explain to me, I'm just challenging your assumptions. Food for thought, is all.

I'm not a bot of any kind, not a sock or troll either. Just a cranky 63yr old woman. And my picture has been up till a few weeks ago, when I went on vacation. Not that having a picture (of a 63yr old woman) actually makes me that person. I'm glad you see my point, anyway.

It's like Infomavore said. "Looking for a nice guy" "why can't I meet a nice guy" "where have all the good guys gone?" ALL are GIANT RED FLAGS. Those women are telling you they don't date nice guys, they date guys who are shitty for them. They are attracted to shitty dudes, they attract shitty dudes and they don't really want a nice guy. Just like guys who say "no drama" "no crazy" they say that because that's what they attract. If you are attracting shitheads/drama queens on a consistant basis, then the problem is you [as in the person writing that on their profile].

Learn to screen better. Also realize that if a woman is actually interested in you, and is a woman that's worth dating she will not:

  • Play manipulative waiting games.
  • Be difficult to get along with.
  • Half-assed participate in conversation.

When a woman is truly interested in a guy, and she's not a manipulative drama llama, she will:

  • Participate fully in conversation.
  • Be open and receptive to conversation and date suggestions.
  • Not put you off with lame excuses.
If you are talking to a woman and she's not reciprocating the same amount of effort in conversation. Stop the conversation. She's not really interested.If you attempt to set up a date with a woman and she makes excuses, hems and haws, or doesn't offer an alternative date/time or compromise. She's not really that interested.Even if she's given you her number. Even if she seemed gung-ho for the first couple of conversations. People lose interest for all kinds of reasons. Learn to recognize disinterest and disengage.

"How do you know she's not a bot?"

 These bots are made for talking

Girl just sounds really immature, and possibly off her meds


Dec 29, 2012 5:13pm

Girls be crazy, yo.


Dec 29, 2012 6:29pm

I bet she'd roleplay teacher-student with midgets though. Mmmm hot.


Dec 29, 2012 7:31pm

I don't understand why you're so worked up about it.

This whole "bot or not a bot" business is straight triflin' as they say in the DMV.
