That is food for thought about the women who have been out there, dating online for months or even years. If this is what he endured during a brief two-hour session---well, just imagine.
At first I believed it was fun, I thought it was weird but perhaps I'd mess with them or something and freak them out and tell them I was a man or something, but as an increasing number of messages came (either replies or new ones I had about 10 different guys message me within 2 hours) the nature of them continued to get more and more irritating.

I continued to dismiss him and finished. Then I began to have some small talk with some men (remember this is like minute 20 of having the profile up) and all of the dialogs kind of get strange. Among the men becomes super aggressive saying he's competitive and he will treat me right, the other is asking for my phone number telling me he is lying in bed and the dialogue (without me steering it) is turning increasingly sexual in nature though I tell him I am not comfortable with it.
