With the rise and rise of apps like Tinder (and the many copycat models) who could blame them. In case you would like to consider dating as a numbers game (and apparently lots of people do), you could likely swipe left/right between 10 - 100 times in the span of time that it'd take you to interact with one possible date in 'real-life'.
Sure, a lady will not receive just sexist comments on her dating profile, she will also have one word messages, or common messages that say nothing. And maybe, just maybe, in50 messages there is going to be a message from a guy who read her profile, and wrote a message that reflects this, and is precisely the kind of guy she would wish to really go. But if she's getting the vast bulk of messages being offensive, abusive or hurtful, you're going to blame her for not troubling to read each and every one in the hope that the following guy is not going to try and hurt her?
So, when guys become rude and insulting it's the fault of the women? How dare they not respond to all messages (which as all posters have said are considerably higher in amount than messages males receive). Every girl is needed by law to respond to every man who posts to her, whether that be sexist, whether it be a one word sentence, and never say anything ill-mannered (The definition of ill-mannered online including not responding, reacting and politely refusing the offer, responding late, reacting.....pretty much any answer which isn't "Do me now!"

His message could also use some work. The first and third paragraphs are only complete filler.

It's not a terrible message, however he is not actually coming across that nicely to me, either - and I work with a considerably more limited dating pool in relation to the women he is likely writing (given that he's composed 30 of them and that his profile is fairly generic and focused on dating younger women, I'm going to say there is good chances that he is writing actually desired women in their own mid-twenties rather than zeroing in on women likely to like him as much as he likes them).
And have you seen the number of men who do the identical thing as the imagined entitled women on dating sites? Probably not as you aren't looking at their profiles. I believe we can safely say there is a part of the population that is rather entitled in general. But go on, consider exactly what you want to, so a lot easier to think you're hard done by and that women are the enemy and to blame for your failures at online dating than to maybe think we are all in this together, all have our own different kinds of shit to handle, and that the great ones are harder to find for sure but are perhaps worth the effort.

Sure, you get messages, but many of them are one-line demands for sex, rude or abusive, or just bizarre.

(So no, men - I won't be blaming myself for this one, so I'd appreciate it if no one else attempted to either - it takes time to see & monitor how people are going to act with you, and we women do not have some magical intuition that predicts how you'll act right off the bat ... unless you're sending us those red-flag messages on dating sites, LOLsigh. We have to see how words & actions fit over time, at least over a couple of months, which I feel was definitely one of the other lessons here.

I really don't enjoy the Kobayashi Maru scenario any more than James T. Kirk did as a cadet.)

well there is some obvious variability to this of course.. but it's also the reason that 100% of my girlfriends have started out as friends or more particularly, women/girls who I spent a LOT of time hanging out near.
