Online Dating Magazine estimates that more than 20 million people visit at least one online dating service a month. (Online Dating Magazine – 2007)
I know that many people meet online these days. Almost every other person I ask about introducing me to nice single men tells me a story about a happy couple that met online. I know of at least four couples who met online. There is some statistic going around that claims something like a quarter of marriages in this country result from people meeting online. I don’t know if that is true, but for more statistics on online dating click here.
Online dating has certainly proven to be great for some people. But for me, a person with man choosing disorder, it is nothing short of hell. During the summer of 2010, my well-meaning coworkers thought I should try online dating because, like so many middle-aged single women, I was having trouble meeting SINGLE middle aged men. In an effort to humor them, I agreed to sign up for a service and go out on a minimum of three dates. I will tell you all about my experiences with Match and those three dates in the next few posts. Needless to say, it was an adventure.
