This Dating App Heroically Slayed A Baby-Man Who Hurled A Tantrum Because A Girl Asked’ What Do You Do ?’

In the long history of the internet there is a stack of screen shootings miles long that detail the tantrums men throw when their manhood is questioned. It’s happened to me — once I happened to fall asleep late at night while texting person I was getting to know from Tinder, and woke up to this 😛 TAGEND

For whatever reason, men on dating apps tend to be, should we say ” touchy “?

The company that owns the dating app Bumble recently got work of a similar instance happening when a guy flipped out because a girl asked” what do you do “? I get that sometimes dating — and especially dating apps — can sometimes feel like a scheduled interview where the other person feels like they’re putting on a depict so you can determine whether they’re “good enough”. But it’s a two-way street. You judge people harshly on their appearance, and you judge people harshly based on whether they live up to the idea of the kind of person you want to be with. Regrettably, one of those things happens on first looking, and another takes a few prying questions.

But again, getting to know someone and seeing if you are able scene a life with them is what dating is about. The big things about your life: what you definitely sounds like, what you do for run, whether you have children, what your home situation is like — those aren’t a secret. Those are the first things you should tell people so you can mutually decide if you’re compatible. If you’re super worried about gold-diggers, it seems like suggesting a cheap/ free first few dates would easily weed that out.

Here’s the exchange Bumble captured 😛 TAGEND




In response, Bumble had this to say:

Dear Connor,

It has been brought to our attention that you lost your cool on one of our female users named Ashley. She made small talk, you felt personally assaulted. She mentioned her work day and requested information about yours; you assumed that she was prying into your financial status.

We are going to venture a guess into the state of mind of Ashley here, given that we are all working women ourselves. Take a seat, because this concept may blow your mind. Women nowadays run. Its happened over time, we know, but a vast majority of women from our generation have jobs.

With that in mind and knowing that Ashley simply mentioned work in the conversation we can collect that she wasnt hoping to figure out if your wallet was sizeable enough for her to move into your house and start cooking dinner for you after vacuuming your living room while you clock in a 9 to 5 work day. Instead, Ashley was( wait for it, Connor, because this is where things genuinely get interesting ), viewing herself as an equal. It might sound crazy, but people connect over the basic routines of life. You know the weather, working out, grabbing a beverage, eating, and working.

And while you may view this as neo-liberal, Beyonce, feminist-cancer, and rant about the personal wounds you are trying to mend from classic entitled gold digging prostitutes, we are going to keep working. We are going to expand our reach and make sure that women everywhere receive the message that they are just as empowered in their personal lives as they are in the workplace. We are going to continue to build a world that builds small-minded, misogynist sons like you feel outdated.

We are going to hope that one day, you come around. We hope that the abhor and resentment welling up inside of you will subside and youll be able to engage in everyday conversations with women without being cowardice to their power. But until that day comes, Connor, deem yourself blocked from Bumble.

Never yours,

The Bumble Hive
