Blogs about online dating experiences
Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.
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.
They move on with their lives, while everyone else complains about the sites and the awful people on the sites.
I don’t deny ANYBODY the negative experiences that they’ve had.

And if it hasn’t happened to you yet, you can say “What’s wrong with these terrible people on these awful sites?
” Or you can ask, “How can I make this work for me, despite the obvious flaws? But I’ll tell you, all it takes is one person – and you’ll be standing right with me.Has my dad’s attitude changed- of course not- in fact i doubt he even recognises a connection.
