I did meet my girlfriend online, but after a year of painful struggle, meaning hardly any dates despite being educated, employed, and reasonably attractive.
Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of kittens saved from trees.
Go to one of those websites that reviews dating sites and you’ll see the same.
Is online dating making the world better and dating more effective, or is something important being lost or sacrificed as a result?
Most of the people that write about online dating write about what’s wrong with it. I mean, that’s what news is – emphasize the bad, misery loves company, etc.
Turn on the TV and it’s not about kittens being saved from trees, but drive-by shootings.
My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing.
They don’t have time to “date around” several times a week.(actually neither would I). Women, being more vulnerable than men, are more hesitant to date online, so you get a situation where there’s a lot more men than women.
