Online dating, as you’re no doubt aware, sometimes has a bit of a stigma. Meeting in person, for whatever reason, is automatically considered to be somewhat more kosher, a little more traditional. But here’s the thing: People can be creepy and weird in real life! Often, way creepier and weirder than they are on the internet.

Take a look at this — what would you call it, a pick-up card? — that a young lady recently received on her lunch break in Manhattan.


This guy asked her directions, she gave them, and then he handed her a card. “Not compromised”? Good lord. Close that chat box as quickly as you can.

Oh wait. You can’t. Cause you’re in person.

The internet: Same ratio of weird and normal people as in real life. At least online you can screen ahead of time.
