Pros of internet dating
"Relationships should be less predictable and worth waiting for." Written by someone who had no trouble dating, I suspect.
Having been an abysmal failure at the dating scene for many, many years, and finally meeting and marrying someone I met at work, I reject this statement.
Makes sense; it's easier to endure rejection from afar rather than have someone laugh directly in your face.
FYI: my female clients claim that it‘s a must for a woman to have a terrific picture to get online attention but it's not as important for a man to have one.
Silly guy, he actually didn't use online dating as a substitute for real dating; he used it to meet a nice girl and then date her for real! There are still human people on either end, you know.
Folks used to be embarrassed to admit using those ads, too.This makes sense in part, because men tend to be more visual.But I do have a friend who refuses to post a picture for professional reasons and he rarely gets any reponses.In my zeal to find out as much about Andy's good fortune as possible I innocently asked: "So, how'd you two meet? Realizing I stepped into something awkward I thought to myself: OMG they met in prison; or on a street corner.After a few seconds passed and all of our skin tones returned to a normal light pinkish color Carol responded: "Well, uh, we met online...that's right...online...the computer." Okay, so it was a pretty good impression of Annie Hall, but why all the fuss? Why are people embarrassed to admit they use this remarkable invention?
