In my opinion, any form of dating kind of sucks. Meeting new people, trying to find the right topic of conversation…Blah blah blah!
I love dating, can’t ya tell?
I’m the jaded sort…but (and there’s always a but) there’s hope and it’s called online dating. I know this first hand.
Living in a small town can put a damper on the dating scene; it definitely does if you’re picky. So now, I’m all about online dating. I guess I have a love/hate relationship with it. Some days, I just wanna throw my computer out the window, some days I want to hug it – I’m going through a hugging phase right now. I have my fingers crossed it stays that way(pray for me people!)
With anything, of course, there are always pro’s and con’s. I love that there’s not much stress when first striking up the conversation. It tends to flow easily, if you’re both interested in forming a ‘relationship’. You get to meet people you would never have met before. You may even meet people that you will form friendships with and can’t live without. I have one of those and I would be lost without him. And the best of all?? If you hold out long enough, you may meet the one you’ll fall head over heels in love with. (Even if he doesn’t know how you feel yet, unless he reads this first. Hehehe)
Thanks Plenty of Fish!
With all the good things being said, there can be a darker side to online dating.
Distance sucks, especially if you meet someone and you are both totally interested in each other. And by distance, I don’t mean the distance between Clarenville to St. John’s.
I’m talking the distance between provinces…or worst yet…countries. That’s distance!
And let’s not forget…married people!
Seriously? You’re married.
You remember that day don’t ya?
Exchanged wedding bands, pictures were took left, right and center, pretty dresses and shoes…all that fun stuff.
What are you doing on an online dating site to begin with?
Another thing I despise about online dating?
People who only email me for sex!
I’m trying to date. If I wanted a random hook up, I’d do the club scene.
Online dating has its risks, just like any kind of dating. Some people may feel it’s embarrassing to have to resort to it, but it isn’t.
Who cares where you meet that special someone, as long as you’re happy.
