Plentyofish dating website
However, I decided I was going to try to take the process a little more seriously, less mindless swiping, really try to meet someone etc., so I decided to change a couple of my photos so people would REALLY know what they were getting into as far as my personal views.
I added these two pictures to my profiles: I felt like these photos served a few purposes.
You may not know me but 13 years ago I started a social network called while I was working as an engineer at Google. In 2014 when Google announced that orkut would be shutting down, it was a sad moment for us. Back in Turkey in middle school, I was the funny guy with the German accent. We stay with locals when we travel abroad but we don't even know our neighbors at home.
orkut had become a community of over 300 million people and was such an amazing adventure for all of us. All my life, I have felt like someone on the outs: I was a programmer, I was gay or I was short and had a foreign accent. But the truth is, I've never had trouble making friends because I love people. We click through feeds of updates from our friends from under our covers in the dark. Too often, we are hateful toward what we don't understand. I'm confident the more we connect, the more beautiful it will become. It's also why I created the world's first social network when I was a grad student at Stanford, and it's why I have dedicated my life to helping people connect with each other.
It’s not as though I hadn’t mentioned politics before, and I felt like on OKC/POF I had really tried to explain my point in a respectful way.
I purposely did not reactivate my profile on POF because I hate the site, but at one point I was showing someone on Twitter how to hide her profile and I guess as I was going through the steps of how to do it and taking screenshots, I accidentally un-hid mine.
But, I have gotten a few politically charged messages over the past three you want a more detailed explanation of my opinion on this (that’s not my real last name, so don’t bother stalking me).I wasn’t aware of this for several weeks until I saw an e-mail come through about getting a message.POF is attached to an e-mail I don’t use that much, so I had missed all the other e-mails about messages I’d gotten over the past few months.On Bumble and Tinder, I had always had a line in my profile saying “If you voted Donald Trump save us both time and swipe left” and on OKC and POF, where you can write a little more, I had always had the following statement: Along those same lines, it’s also important to me that you didn’t vote for Donald Trump.I can accept some political differences with a person I’m dating, and normally I wouldn’t really care who you voted for in a presidential election, but my fears and concerns about this upcoming administration go beyond any typical difference of opinion/political party/etc (let’s be serious, Donald Trump is only pretending to be a republican anyway, so this isn’t my way of saying I won’t date republicans).
