I'm a very busy girl. Let me rephrase that. I'm a very, very busy girl. I do my banking online, pay my bills online, keep up with friends online and shop for clothes online. It just seems appropriate that I should give online dating a whirl.
I like knowing that I will have a guaranteed date. I'm pro-active about everything else in my life, why not dating? Plans are very important to me and if I know I will see [boy's name] on [date] at [time], I don't have to stress. Even better, though, I feel with online dating I can be a lot more specific than I would be if I just met someone at a bar. If I'm actively online, especially if I'm paying for that service, I am only walking out of that store with something that looks the way I want and fits PERFECTLY.
I've never dated a guy I met on Twitter, but I definitely would. There are a few people I follow that I consider viable options. They treat the site as a knowledge share and I'm just generally attracted to intelligent, successful people. Even though I haven't met someone on Twitter and then dated them, I find myself more attracted to a guy I meet in general life who turns out to be on the site. The crappy part, however, is that if you guys part ways you have to see all their stupid updates.
- I received a message from a cute guy that wasn't really my type, but, even if he had been Michael Buble in the flesh, I wouldn't have responded to him. His first and only message to me ended with the following, all caps, sentence: EVEN IF YOU AREN'T INTERESTED YOU HAVE TO JUST RESPOND AND TELL ME YOU AREN'T. I absolutely did NOT respond.
- If you're username has XXX in it or your profile pic is shirtless, I will not respond to you. If your message to me says "want to cyber", I will not respond to you.
Have you ever met a boyfriend/girlfriend online?
