Whats so bad about online dating
I know several people who've met spouses or long-term loves through online dating, and that's rad. There are a few online dating sites that are just really, really f*cking terrible places to find love, romance, sex or just a decent human being.
If you're looking for a relationship that won't end in heartbreak, murder, or just a whole lot of therapy that you probably wouldn't need otherwise, make sure you do everything in your power to avoid the following online dating sites.
If you want someone else to pay your bills or buy you a purse in exchange for your company, along with added but unwritten expectations of sexual favors, fine. But know that this is basically glorified prostitution, which is illegal in most places in the United States without a few loopholes and clever language.
You will peruse profiles and find a few women who aren’t posing in a bathroom with their stomachs exposed.
You will look for things in common in their profile (they like Scrabble too! You will send them a note, carefully crafted to show interest and attention to detail. The next one will, but she spells “you” as “u” and you will let the conversation stall.
You will try to split it, but he will pay, and you will stand to re-wrap yourself against the frigid wind.
You will part ways, and you will probably, almost certainly, begin again the next day with another “Hey there…” message from the next contender.
