This is actually how I met my soon-to-be ex. And not because I’m jaded by him, but I choose now not to be meet someone online.
I think online dating is something everyone SINGLE should try at some point in their lives. I tried it for quite some time and some of the experiences were good and some, meh. I think the feedback aspect of it can be quite addictive for the ego and there are precautions that must be taken – one never knows if someone is truly not married, really employed and really legit.
But for fun, for a lark, for a dare, I think one should try it out.
