Oh No You Didn't

Oh.  My.  God.  I recently wrote this quote:
Online dating is the suckiest suck that ever sucked.
A friend soon commented on it thusly:
Then get out there and play the field.
I'd be speechless if I weren't so irate that someone elses obtuse ignorance had not penetrated a space directly below a quote of mine, so as to assoicate that ill-advised comment forever with what was a generally not serious, benign, and probably not all that funny line.

First, there is a syntax error committed in trying to make a dichotomy where there is none.  To the point, how is online dating different from "playing the field?"  Therefore, I'm led to ask what playing the field is, after which, we then need to realize that talking about dating as a game is inherently stupid (on top of objectifying).  A game is something you can win, people.
