Thanks to online dating, you no longer have to do that.
You can set up a profile on a dating site and browse around and answer emails whenever you have some spare time on your hands.
People who meet on dating sites are quicker to tie the knot than those who meet in the real world — dating for an average of just over 18 months before getting hitched, compared to 42 months for those who meet offline.
To all my single friends, I suggest this: Rather than spend another night talking to another balding banker, or worse, suffer through a complete dry spell, why not make dates come to you?
No matter which side of the dating spectrum you’re on, there is definitely an online dating service that’s right for you.
My philosophy was: the wider I cast my net, the more likely I am to find that rare guy who’s just right for me.
And while I’m no longer in the dating pool, I definitely remember many a month when I felt like all the attractive and kind men had gone into hiding.
