Are dating sites good
Dear Geoff, Glad to hear you found someone special, and even happier that you spoke up.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.Go to one of those websites that reviews dating sites and you’ll see the same.Average review will be 2 out of 5 stars or something like that. Because people who get married from online dating sites rarely get back online to post happy reviews on websites.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.Aside from my own luck and the trendy radio ads and sexy commercials, it seems as if no one’s happy.They move on with their lives, while everyone else complains about the sites and the awful people on the sites.I don’t deny ANYBODY the negative experiences that they’ve had.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of kittens saved from trees.Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.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.I just urge people to find some healthier perspective on the whole thing.
I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.
I did meet my girlfriend online, but after a year of painful struggle, meaning hardly any dates despite being educated, employed, and reasonably attractive.
