Types of online dating sites
Online dating can be like a marathon (or so I'm told, as I could never in my life run one). In that vein, here are some guys you'll inevitably meet when you're digi-dating.
But if you're looking for love, it can be a really terrific way to find it as long as you realize you've got to message a few frogs before you find your prince.
Not only will you see more people, you can find exactly the person you want, or so we've been led to believe. I remember being in a car with three women who each went through a laundry list of criteria for their perfect mate.
There's also a list of their criteria, plus they maintain a list of top ranked beautiful daters. According to the site, the socially successful have become too confident to be intimate.
I believe this site is on the up and up, but I don't think they beta tested it with many or if any members. Wouldn't it be awesome if all the women you met smoked pot? Geeks' lack of past romantic success allows them to approach lovers with the zest of a neophyte.
This is one of those sites that people want to simultaneously join, protest, and mock. If you're questioning whether geeks make good mates, read this site's rationale for why geeks make the best catch.
The site owners maintain a poorly updated blog where they keep track of all their complaints. My favorite "geek dating" rationale is their lack of experience.
There used to be an old saying, "You won't meet anyone if you don't go out." Not true anymore. I have seen this behavior more so in women, than in men.
