Was never big into on-line dating. Might have something to do with it not really being all that prevalent before I got married. But now, there are so many different on-line dating sites, it's crazy. No one out of my dysfunctional circle of friends has attempted it to my knowledge. They all did it the old fashioned way. Started an illicit affair with a co-worker, was approached by an overbearing woman in a piano bar, met in college at a frat party kegger, had an arranged marriage, stalked a stripper, you know, the normal way to do things without a keyboard.
But family members on the other hand, they decided to go against the grain, to try the non-conventional. To take pictures of themselves and post a profile of themselves and what they were looking for in the opposite sex online. I can't even imagine how many crazies they had to reject, how many "blind dates" they had to go on. But they persevered.
Both my sister and a cousin of mine not only found success through online dating, but also found husbands as well. My cousin was so successful, the company used her and her stalk.....er.....boyfriend/husband, whatever in one of their ads:
I think my sister used a different online service, but the results were the same. With the exception of being turned into a poster child for keyboard dating.
Might not work for everybody. And I'm sure that if I were still single, I'd probably being giving it a shot as well. Or simply going to the nearest bar and seeing which women were drunk enough to comply to me doing body shots off of them.
