Woman Creates Horrible Online Dating Profile, But Uses Picture of Model So...

It can be hard to meet a quality guy these days, which is one of the reasons online dating is so popular.

But comedy writer Alli Reed decided she was going to conduct an experiment and create a fake OK Cupid dating profile for an awful, absolutely unlikeable  person.

She created "Aaron Carter fan," a woman who is a self proclaimed "goddess," who spends her days "partying!"

Her parents pay her bills because they think she's in law school and she's really good at "convincing people I'm pregnant.. LOL"

If you thought this profile kept the guys at bay, you'd be 100% wrong.

Alli, acting as her profile, got 150 messages in 24 hours.

Maybe it's because she used a modeling photo of a friend of hers?

When asked why she thought she still got replies despite the seemingly horrific personality behind her profile, Reed said: 'I don't think anyone who messaged her really read her profile..I hope, I really hope.'

    Many people have made fake, funny profiles like these(OKCupid profile - Bitchygf)... did this just make the news because the girl was hot?

    Awesome. Added to the thousands upon thousands of other fake profiles on dating websites, is it any wonder why people are so frustrated with their inability to find someone real with online dating? Online dating websites aren't playgrounds to mess with people or run your little experiments. They are places people turn to when finding people locally hasn't fruitful. Littering the the customer base like this doesn't help people who are trying to legitmately find love abroad; it sullies the already shady perception people have of these services. You should be ashamed of your actions.

    I used an online picture of a good looking male and got tons of messages from women. So much for beauty is only skin deep.

    I'm sorry but this surprises you? I know someone who did a similar experiment with several different female profiles. The sexually promiscuous one and the girl next door got the most responses. The confident older woman got the next most. The least? The self pitying older woman with baggage. No one was thrilled with that one.

    It was an interesting experiment because it goes to show how really desperate many men are for casual relationships. Honestly, if they decided to make prostitution legal in America, they would make a fortune in taxes.

    What's most surprising is that CNN thinks this is an actual story. Someone who is unlikable gets attention because of their good looks? Online people are so stupid because we know it doesn't work this way in the real world too, right? If her attempted point is that no one reads the profiles, she should do a similar ad with an opening that tells people she has herpes and see if she gets the same number of responses.

  7. Online dating, meh

    I have not had any luck with online dating and this is exactly why. They guys don't want intellectual and hardworking. They want easy to get and a quick bout of fun...

      Guys want a hot woman, not some "curvy" woman with a great personality. personality doesn't get my blood flowing.
