Online dating is a pain in the ass. As a “veteran” of over 60 internet dates and nearly 10 years of negotiating my way through the many, many websites out there. Whether you're currently online dating, considering getting back onto an app or site, or still in the “never would I ever date online” camp, I think.
I know we all know people who love to tell us that they know people who met online. Everybody meets online now, right? Just using the most popular dating app here. That makes 27 million people on this dating app who did not meet their partner on their first goddamned date.
You want to tell me a success story? Yes, people meet online, but fuck the odds of it. The invested effort of heterosexual single women looking for men to spend time with online is not met with a proportional return, not by a goddamned mile, and this disparity does not exist link.
