Worst Online Dating Profile Ever Attracts Hundreds Of Positive Male Responses

Do men have any limits when it comes to women and online dating? Apparently not, according to L.A.-based comedian and columnist Alli Read, whose latest experiment proves men don't care about personality, only looks.
Reed set up a fake OKCupid online dating account of the “Worst Woman on Earth” in a bid to prove the existence of “an online dating profile so loathsome that no man would message it.” Sadly, Reed announced on Cracked.com that her efforts failed.
A longtime OKCupid user herself, Reed had obtained permission from her best friend, a gorgeous model, to use her photographs to create a profile that was, “mean, spoiled, lazy, racist, manipulative, and even a gold digger," Reed wrote.
In an effort to seem as unlikable as possible, Reed touched on every major facet of being "truly horrible." On her profile, she said she was a goddess and her main aim was to “keep America American.” She said on a typical Friday night she was “knocking coffee out of homeless people’s hands because it was so funny." She also declared she was unemployed and couldn't live without money.
But despite these less than appealing admissions, within 24 hours, Reed was inundated with 150 messages.
Attempting to curb the responses, Reed became "unforgivably awful," even going so far as to ask guys if she could pull out their teeth. To another man she wrote that she was really good at convincing people she is pregnant.
Still, the men were undeterred and the messages kept rolling in. This suggests that some men really don’t have any limits when it comes to women, sex and dating.
Despite the cynical conclusions that could be drawn from her experiment and Alli Reed's own personal desire to invest in a “high-quality chastity belt and start collecting cats” she decided to stay optimistic. She offered this impassioned plea:
“Men of the world: You are better than this….There are women and men out there who are smart, and kind, and challenging, and honest, and a lot of other really positive adjectives. You don't want someone who will pull out your teeth and then sue you for child support; you deserve someone who will make you want to be better than you are, and will want to be better because of you.”
