Would you ever use an online dating service? Why or why not? Have you already?
If I was desperate for a date, I guess I might. And no, I have not already, because I’ve never been desperate for a date.
Well, okay, maybe there was that one time when I had to go to the spring prom the year after I graduated from high school to crown the next prom queen. Whoever thought up that stupid tradition probably also invented online dating for just such an emergency.
But no worries, even without the internet I managed to dig up some guy to escort me. Didn’t have to pay him or anything, although I sure can’t remember what was in it for him. The pleasure of my sarcastic eye rolling company I guess.
At this point in my life I certainly don’t have any high school proms looming in my forseeable future, and even going on an actual ‘date’ is a real stretch of the imagination. Especially one arranged online. Because I’ve heard some horror stories. Like how you should put 911 on speed dial on your phone and choose a crowded coffee shop with several exits for your meeting place and even then it could all go horribly wrong.
Really I’m just a complete chicken shit and can’t imagine any of it. Although I do believe it’s the way of the future. And just like being introduced to your cousins girlfriends fathers nephews friend from some place you’ve never heard of and having it all work out….I think the odds of finding someone worth the effort online are just as good.
