E-Dating; The Devil's Brew
I'm going to come right out and say I have never actually tried e-dating. No Match.com or eHarmony.com or YouKnowThere'sSomeoneOutThereYouJustHaven'tLookedOnTHISSiteYet.com Frankly my dear, they scare me. Not in the Craiglist-they'll-rob-you kind of way, but in the people-lie-to-your-face-how-much-worse-can-they-be-over-the-INTERNET kind of way.
Oh sure, there's always the friend of a cousin that has found their one true love on an internet dating site, but that's the 0.5% that you hear about. That ONE person you have heard of that it's actually worked for--the hope-fodder. For the most part all I get told is it's either a bunch of first dates with nothin' to show for it or terrible, terrible matches.
My poor sister is one of those "guess who just WINKED at me?! Ewwww!" ones. At least she's trying though, so kudos to her. At this point though I'm not doing any worse off then her NOT using the dating sites then she is actually using them. I've actually saved myself a lot of aggravation. At least I will keep telling myself that until my sister gets married, then I'm getting a cat.
