Here is what I wrote back to her: First of all, I’ve had EVERY bad dating experience you can possibly imagine.

Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.

My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing.

Go to one of those websites that reviews dating sites and you’ll see the same.

Average review will be 2 out of 5 stars or something like that. Because people who get married from online dating sites rarely get back online to post happy reviews on websites.

I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.

I did meet my girlfriend online, but after a year of painful struggle, meaning hardly any dates despite being educated, employed, and reasonably attractive.They don’t have time to “date around” several times a week.(actually neither would I). Women, being more vulnerable than men, are more hesitant to date online, so you get a situation where there’s a lot more men than women.Aside from my own luck and the trendy radio ads and sexy commercials, it seems as if no one’s happy.If you choose to wait for lightning to strike until you go on another date with the “right” guy, you might be waiting a long, long time. Listen, you might think I’m nuts to keep on preaching positivity. All I know is that it’s freakin’ HARD to meet someone.We have our small lives: our circle of married friends, our work buddies, a few single people, and that’s it.Our dating consultants will also personally speak to you on the phone to help you coordinate your dates!
