I had an interesting chat tonight with my hair stylist, while getting my awesome red highlights, about online dating. We both came to the same, sad conclusion: the majority of people who are on online dating sites aren’t actually interested in taking the dating from “online” to “offline.”
I’d love to see if there is a study out there on the success rate of online dating. Not your typical study, but a study of people who create profiles who actually go out on a real date. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been contacted for a one-night-fling (no thanks!) or for an endless chat that goes no where (again, no thanks!).
Another friend recently responded to my latest post on Singles Warehouse by stating that if we don’t meet people online, what are we supposed to do – stand at the produce section of the supermarket and just wait?
We’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t!
Online daters: do you take it offline?
