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.
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 elsewhere. The established relationship of effort-to-result is challenged in online dating in a manner that is nothing short of madness.
