Giving up online dating dating in the dark reunion
I was angry about being blown off for the umpteenth time by a guy who'd disappointed me many times before, so I thought creating an account on a dating site, which is supposed to attract guys looking for more than just hook-ups (or so we're led to believe), would restore some of my faith in people.
I'll admit that it did, but that doesn't mean the online dating concept works for all.
Two months ago, I joined How About We, a dating site for doing activities with other singles, on a whim.When you go to the shoe store, even the most high-end shoe store, you might spend an hour or longer trying different shoes, and out of thirty pairs, you might only like one pair, or even none.You are tired of trying different shoes that don’t fit or don’t look right to you, but you also enjoyed the experience of going through different shoes, seeing what’s out there, and eventually finding the right pair.Fast forward thirteen years and I hate everything about internet chat. I G-chat, which I'm convinced is going to get me fired someday because I can't stop using it and don't know how to tell people nicely that they're distracting me, and even though I love my i Phone, I'm not a big texter (I only really text my mom, sad face).People don't believe me when I make statements like these, but it's my tragic reality.
