It's 2011, aging is inevitable, and the possibility of marriage is still on the table. For most of us it's "first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the lady with the baby carriage". Yep, that's it. But before all of that, is dating. Whew, some of us meet dating with the a SIGH and others greet it as a probable opportunity. However, online dating is a total trick bag.
We use sites such as "Ok Cupid", "Match.com", "eHarmony" and a host of others with the hopes of finding Mr. or Mrs. Right (or at least a free meal). Yet, many of these online dating sites have the same faces, the same profiles, and the same drama (well for me anyway). I try to approach these ventures with an open mind and a positive attitude yet it's typically killed within minutes of an email exchange or phone call.
Why you ask?
Well this is why?
#2 - There are so many people who misrepresent themselves online.
- The consultant = the EX con
- the just looking for friends = the married or shacking dude
- the "tell me something about you" = the boring lazy dude
- the tree hugger, anti-American = the broke dude.
Online dating should be simple. See a nice photo, engage in dialog, decide if it's worth going forward, go on a date, have a good time, start dating, fall in love, and marry. I mean that's simple right. Instead, I find lots of fishy smelling, odorous moth ball wreaking, gold tooth having, trailer park living, emotionally unstable, ex-cons.
