The Truth About Internet Dating

Check out this cartoon depicting one guy’s thoughts about online dating. It starts out on a positive note — the girl he’s been chatting with says she’ll go on a date with him, and he even gets some virtual tongue action via instant messenger. Things seem to be going well enough, as they take a ride on a ferris wheel, go to the movies, have a picnic in the park, go to bed together…and then, you realize the guy is dreaming. This is so true about online dating. Since you haven’t met any of the people, you can imagine them however you want (with a face like Casey Affleck and a voice like Pierce Brosnan). You can visualize your life with them until you meet them. Then, you see that they completely suck or can’t hold a conversation or don’t look like their pictures at all. “[Dating is] like buying a CD, only if you like the CD, you have to call the store and see if they’ll let you keep it. And if you don’t like it, you have to call the store and tell them why,” one of my friends told me. That’s why I illegally download music. [I Am Bored]
