A few e-mails and a telephone call or two will allow your personality to work for you—a real plus.
In the bar scene it's all about your looks; you don't have the luxury of putting your best picture out there because—you're out there—in the flesh.
In fact, one woman admonished him for not posting a picture: "If I have to put one up there you should to," she said.
Online dating is also convenient, or I should say as convenient as you'd like it to be.
I just ran into my buddy Andy at a restaurant-—the kind of hip place you'd take a first date to impress her.
Knowing he'd gone through a difficult divorce—one he didn't really want—I was pleased when he immediately introduced me to his new girlfriend, Carol. Andy and Carol turned to one another and began mumbling something indecipherable for what seemed to be an eternity.
This is a big pro in my books, another con though is having way too many options."Relationships should be less predictable and worth waiting for." Written by someone who had no trouble dating, I suspect.Having been an abysmal failure at the dating scene for many, many years, and finally meeting and marrying someone I met at work, I reject this statement.There was a time when you had to send couriers from your castle to your mate's castle and wait a month or so for a response.In the not too distant past there was a time when you had to mail a letter and wait two or three days to hear something; there was a time when you had to get off your ass and drive somewhere. I know online dating is necessary in our crazy fast-paced world; I, too, think it beats the bar scene; and I know your friend the tax attorney may not be able to fix you up until tax season is over; just sayin: I knew there was something disturbing about the Jetsons.
