An Online Dating Offer You Can’t Refuse: Free Man With Every Shoe Purchase

Today I read about a merger that makes sense, but in a sorta creepy way: shoe-shopping and online dating.

How I Found A Boyfriend By Online Dating

I understand why online dating gets a bad rap: it takes away the fun of the “meet-cute” and forces you to judge, based on very little information, whether you want to take risks with someone else’s neuroses and perversions. There have been online dates I’ve been on over the past four years, such as with…

Girl Talk: Why I’ve Given Up On Online Dating

I was an early adopter of online dating: I was into it before it became as commonplace as it is today, and I was young (22) when I first started. Back then (cue “when I was your age…”), young twentysomethings didn’t really “do” online dating. And if they did, they didn’t exactly openly advertise it.

Apparently, Android Users Are The Sluttiest

Don’t judge me by my Android phone, Match.com! I resent the fact that a new study done by the online matchmaking site claims that Droid users are the loosest of all Smartphone owners. I quote: “Androids may be the newest Smartphone on the market but their users have already been around the block.” from a…

Girl Talk: I Met My Husband On My First Online Date

I was one of the skeptics. Online dating sounded kinda lame to me. It sounded kinda like giving up. After all, I was living in New York, a city teeming with eligible bachelors. In theory. I wasn’t meeting any of them, but I was told they were out there. And I wanted to go o…

OKStupid: For Those Total Online Dating Fails

If you’ve online dated, you’ve probably gotten one or two or 17 really terrible messages from strange, socially maladjusted weirdos.
