Discuss: Finding Love Online
May 31, 2013
A short post today.
Online dating. Have you done it? How was it? Did you meet anybody good? Or was it unmitigated disaster?
I have a friend who went on 90+ (not a typo or an exaggeration) Internet-matched dates before she met a guy she really adored. That’s determination.
And, if I could have a follow-up: Is there still a stigma associated with online dating? It seems like there shouldn’t be since it’s so pervasive, but I’ve seen people give the side eye when someone says they met their significant other online.
Also, I have an acquaintance keeps telling people that she and her boyfriend of three months met at a coffee shop, but they didn’t. They met online, and she has forbidden him to tell anyone because she thinks it cheapens the relationship.
