people ask me all the time if i've considered online dating.
truthfully, lately a lot of my friends have taken to this modern endeavor.
and several of them have found success!
one example of success:
what? of course i'm friends with tom and meg. clearly.
my initial concerns:
Q: would it be embarrassing if people i know see me on there?
A: duh, that means they're on there too.
besides, i'm blogging about it so now you all know anyway. FULL DISCLOSURE, PEOPLE.
Q: does online dating make you seem desperate?
A: eh, i wouldn't label most of my friends as desperate who are using it.
Q: is it unromantic to meet someone online?
A: i figure that's just step one. you still get to build the rest of the story in-person, e.g. first date, etc.
Q: can't people just tell dirty lies and hide behind the internets?
A: maybe, but people can lie in person too. i figure it's similar to going on a blind date -- you still figure out what you need to know after meeting in person. i'll be a smart cookie and only meet them in a public place, i won't be handing out my address or social security # or anything.
as you know, i found myself recently single again.
and all my online-dater friends were like, "do it katie! do it!"
and then i got a fever all weekend.
and after lying in bed for like 3 solid days, something crazy came over me.
and now i have an online dating profile? how did that happen?
germs, was that you?
but you know...i figure it can't hurt. i'm sure good stories will come of this.
and if i hate it, i'll break the wrist and walk away.
and it asks me important questions such as:
If I had my choice of the following options, I would live...
duh, tree house.
So uh....here we go?
what about you? your thoughts on online dating?
please let this be like tom hanks & meg ryan!
