Concepts of online dating
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?
"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.
No need to drop a pound or two and drag yourself to a Happy Hour or a meet-up group.
Nope; just a couple of taps on your keyboard and presto: Janine appears on your screen to tell you that she loves to laugh, isn't needy, loves her children more than life itself, and can find time to fit you into her mind-boggling schedule.
This is a big pro in my books, another con though is having way too many options.A female friend of mine would only date men who lived a minimum of one hour away—she liked the anonymity.Call me a wimp, but I get exhausted just visualizing a two-hour drive home in the wee hours of the morning following a date.Married 20 years and now unfortunately facing divorce, I'll try predictability and speed instead if I find myself single again.I prefer the "control over the romantic process" (as you phrase it) that the new technology gives us because I've found the process didn't work out well the first time, and I have no desire to wait until I'm retired for it to work again. There are no bad ways to find love, and no real reason to compare the bar versus the dating sites. Many people do not have the ability to be at places where they have the opportunity to meet the opposite sex.
