Rejected on dating site
It feels different, because it feels more like I’m rejecting a person, well, personally, rather than saying they aren’t the right fit or we had more qualified applicants. I do indeed think the etiquette for rejection in different in these two situations: It’s much more acceptable not to reply to messages from would-be suitors on online dating sites than it is for employers not to reply to job applicants.I also think I would get more pushback of the kind hiring managers sometimes get when we reject an applicant. Part of it is just a difference in conventions — the professional conventions for hiring are different than the conventions for online dating.Please note that a complaint submitted through the online platform will not be considered unless you have raised it with us first.*Data based on an extrapolation from Research Now survey conducted in April 2018, among a representative sample of 10671 persons aged 18 in the UK, which has been combined with the total population of this age group (Source Eurostat 2018).3% of interviewees have ever been in a relationship with someone they claim having met on Match.We are a member of the Online Dating Association (ODA).(Not that they always do, of course, but there’s more of an expectation of it.) But a really big part of it is the reality that most women doing online dating quickly learn that if they send polite rejections to men who contact them, they’ll receive an enormous number of hostile and even abusive responses.And you can’t always tell who those are going to come from!Part of it, too, is that there’s more of an understanding (or at least there’s supposed to be) that hiring and applying for jobs is, well, business not personal.As a result, everyone involved is expected to handle rejection reasonably professionally.
