Loser dating site
Breaking: everyone involved in online dating is a craven, superficial liar. A 5'8 guy needs to make K more than a 5'10 guy to be judged as attractive as him.
Dating should be a breeze, since we're all young, tall, wealthy, and attractive (online). In a new data-mining study of online dating of the sort that everyone trying to fill a news hole loves, the following facts were revealed: Men think women go downhill after age 21.
Glass of bubbly in one hand and the other clamped firmly on my thigh, the man sitting opposite lunged forward, muttered something under his breath and gave me a slobbery kiss. Here I was on a first date and all I wanted to do was run out of the restaurant screaming. I’d only seen a blurry photo of him and had a brief online chat but he seemed decent enough.
Meeting him face to face was a different matter, however.
I’m talking about internet dating, of course, where millions of singletons (and quite a few marrieds on the make) line up to be selected and rejected in a process that has become Britain’s most popular way for couples to get together. Too young for the dinner party set, too old to be hanging out at nightclubs, it seemed like a hopeless cause until a friend of a similar age took me out and confessed her dirty little secret: she’d started to meet men online.
Over half of all single people turn to the internet in their search for love. I never did and I’ve never met anyone it has worked for either. She imparted this information in hushed tones, without making eye contact, and then, on pain of death, swore me to secrecy.
When I took my first tentative step into the world of online romance I had just come out of a seven-year relationship and was looking forward to meeting a man who made me feel special.
So I handed over my money to a dating site for professionals and waited.
But when I started it was a bit like train-spotting — you’d heard about it, you knew it went on, but the sort of people who did it were a little bit odd and not the type whose company you’d keep.
Today, there are hundreds of dating sites to choose from, catering for those with all sorts of criteria: vegetarians, Christians, single parents, sports fanatics, people who like pets.
You name it, there’s a site where you can meet your perfect match who shares the same interest. I browsed one site before signing up and handing over my money.
They're separating and trying to decide how to divide everything.
Worst still is that he's married and is sharing a house with his wife.
