These guys are the ones who initiated the conversations (probably unsolicited.) No one should feel bad for them.

Now you're going to say: "that's what dating sites are all about." No. They are not. Dating sites are to find people who share similar interests. People who are on your level. People who play in your league. That you'd actually be able to approach in public but you don't, because you've never seen them out in public.

Stay in your lane!

Dating sites are not there for introverts and pervs to SPAM the fuck out of every woman they find hot.

And ya...that "I know you from" the chess club line was totally legit. Right.
