Love it or loathe it, there is no disputing that it is both soul destroying, yet highly entertaining all at the same time. After recently going on an ‘organic date‘, meeting the guy on a night out, I have realised the benefits of both online and offline dating… but still head back to online dating like a moth to a flame.
Why? I have absolutely no idea, it just passes the time I guess. Conversations with people you may never necessarily meet can be extremely amusing – though I have met some lovely guys recently from online dating, so it can’t be all that bad!
The search still continues though and I do wonder if I am searching for someone who doesn’t actually exist… I then click onto POF etc, attempt to lower my standards and then immediately change my mind and stick to my original tick list. These men really do stand no chance at all!
The Internet has totally changed the way dating ‘works’ – meeting the recent ‘organic date’ meant that it didn’t feel like a normal first date. Albeit I in theory know the guy, at the time I probably knew less about him than most of the men on POF as his life story had not been printed in black and white for all to see.
Makes me realise how much I rely on the Internet, especially after I recently changed to a new 4G phone. It is ridiculously quick, loading up pages even faster, I am even considering comparing broadband packages for my home in the vain hope it will make work a lot quicker and more seamless. We spent the weekend at a stunning hotel near Scarborough and it seems super fast broadband has completely bypassed them… they struggle to get 3G let alone 4G. For someone who needs access to the Internet, it was painful, but blissful at the same time.
Being home now means everything is back to normal and I am yet again receiving questionable messages from questionable men… being without the Internet for a couple of days doesn’t actually seem as bad now!
