16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating!

Next time, let Hanna or Aria write your profile.


1. The first step: wondering why you even need to join a dating site.

Like Hanna said to Ella: "you're a catch!"

2. Trying to explain it to your friends...

...who are all in relationships.

3. Coming up with a username.

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1003

This is arguably the hardest part. Swimster. PrettyLittleSwimming. EmilySwims.

4. Trying to fill out your bio.

If you cook, you're a chef, right?

5. When you don't get any matches immediately.

:( - refresh - :( - refresh - :(

6. Looking through all the available options and judging them.

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1006

Who uses a picture of themselves and their mom? *sigh*

7. Getting multiple second opinions before even writing a message.

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1007

It's a lot of effort. Make it count.

8. Spotting one of your matches in real life!

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1008

Talk to them, or run away? Ahhh!

9. Picking somewhere public to meet your date.

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1009

Particularly in Rosewood. Nowhere is technically ALL that safe.

10. Picking an outfit!

And then they're just wearing a t-shirt and jeans. Dates. Oof.

11. Forcing your friends to spy on things.

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1011

An admittedly risky move.

12. When your date looks nothing like their profile picture.

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1012

So. Who're you?

13. Getting someone to call you in case you need to escape!

#gottago #athinghappened

14. Telling them you think you should just be friends.

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1014

And they are heartbroken. Naturally.

15. Swearing that you'll never put yourself through that again!

Pretty Little Liars - 16 Pretty Little Screengrabs to Sum Up The Struggles Of Online Dating! - 1015

Delete. Profile.

16. And then beginning the cycle all over again!

New profile name this time. HotforTeacher? I'veBeenThrougALot Rosewood'sOwn
