Weird online dating websites
I just urge people to find some healthier perspective on the whole thing.
A private client told me just this weekend that she’s quitting online dating after three bad dates in a row.
They don’t have time to “date around” several times a week.(actually neither would I). Women, being more vulnerable than men, are more hesitant to date online, so you get a situation where there’s a lot more men than women.
Aside from my own luck and the trendy radio ads and sexy commercials, it seems as if no one’s happy.
According to the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans suggest that online dating is a good way to meet people.
Interestingly, more than 15% of adults say that they have used either mobile dating apps or an online dating site at least once in the past.
My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing.
Here is what I wrote back to her: First of all, I’ve had EVERY bad dating experience you can possibly imagine.
I’ve had women write me nasty emails, insult me over the phone, ignore my phone calls, stand me up, refuse to thank me for dinner, refuse to reciprocate in bed… And yet I still run around as this super dating advocate, because I believe it is the best prospect to find someone special.
Online dating services are now the second most popular way to meet a partner.
The popularity of online dating is being driven by several things but a major factor is time.
