Before I got married, I tried just about every dating site out there.
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.
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?
Basing this on some mighty lonely experiences living alone in the big city and essentially working my butt off, I found it almost impossible meeting someone.
Working in retail in Soho, the most amount of interaction I had with the opposite sex were usually gay. It was just one of the biggest dry spells I had and all I wanted was to be adored and wined and dined. I didn’t think I was ugly and I do usually have some confidence when it comes to dating.
Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships.
Few Americans had online dating experience when Pew Research Center first polled on the activity in 2005, but today 15% of U. adults report they have used online dating sites or mobile dating apps.
