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.There was a time when you had to send couriers from your castle to your mate's castle and wait a month or so for a response.In the not too distant past there was a time when you had to mail a letter and wait two or three days to hear something; there was a time when you had to get off your ass and drive somewhere. I know online dating is necessary in our crazy fast-paced world; I, too, think it beats the bar scene; and I know your friend the tax attorney may not be able to fix you up until tax season is over; just sayin: I knew there was something disturbing about the Jetsons.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?So the "bar scene" is the only alternative to online dating you can think of?
Folks used to be embarrassed to admit using those ads, too.
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.
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.
