When I was in college, the high point of the day was coming home to a blinking answering machine, meaning someone called and left a message.
Before caller ID, email, voicemail, text messaging, IM, wall postings, and poking there was…a blinking light.
I heard people wondering about online dating and they ask, as if it’s a binary question: Should I do it – yes or no? The better question is one of degrees: how much online dating should I do?
An online dating site should be on any singleton’s menu of meeting places, which is no longer limited to the local bar or random parties.
As with most things, it’s the extremes that come across as weird, such as someone that only does online dating or someone that does no online dating at all.
