I see a lot of guys on OkCupid who use selfies as profile pics. Sometimes mirror ones. Often the mirror is dirty.
I have questions.
First, don’t you own Windex? Vinegar? A ShamWow? I can’t get naked in your home if your mirror is all bedaubed with toothpaste remnants. I’m a lady, dammit. Plus it’ll turn into that “Big Bang Theory” episode where Sheldon can’t sleep because Penny’s apartment is messy: “I couldn’t sleep knowing that just outside my bedroom is our living room, and just outside our living room is that hallway, and immediately adjacent to that hallway is…THIS!” And I am damn sure not cleaning while you sleep.
Second, don’t you have ANY photos someone else took? Do you have friends? Only two of my six profile pics are selfies: a really cute one taken post-haircut/color, and one mirror one I took after work so I’d have a really recent pic. The caption says: “With apologies for the mirror selfie, this is what I look like after work.” (Not at all true — after work I put on yoga pants and put my hair in a ponytail. But I’ll never let any of these dudes see that.)
Some guys have like 10 selfies, but only ONE facial expression, so it’s like Flat Stanley or the Twilight chick — the same face in various settings. “Here I am at home. Here I am at work. Here I am in a bar. Here I am in a PUBLIC restroom mirror, just for a bit of added class. That’s right, ladies… Behold.”
I haven’t seen this show in years because it stopped being funny, but this was so sweet. They’re adorable, I want to hug them.
Also, asking verbal consent AND a contractual backup? Well played, Dr. Cooper. (We’ll let that comment about “litigious society” go. OK, fine, he’s an awkward virgin — whatever. They still make it sound like he could get fake-rape-sued. As if that is a thing that happens all the time.)
Wait. What was my point? Oh, right. Sweet. It was sweet.
I get that the reporter was probably interviewing tons of people and can’t research them all, so I don’t think he was being deliberately sexist — I do think he may have asked the same question of any male actor from that show.
However, you ARE an entertainment reporter. This is just a casual interest of mine, not my JOB, and I knew she was a nerd ninja.
