Whereas before a man just needed to be the best looking guy at work to get a date with a colleague, now he needed to be in the top 10% of all men to get a date with one of the women in his city.” This is the double-edged sword of online dating.
Post true-to-life pictures, and be honest about your weight. I had just called that “looking attractive,” but apparently I’m just as wrong as the rest of you, because the dudes and dudettes that are checking out our pictures see right through our faux-hollow cheeks and plumped-up lips and they are having none of it. Now, having said that, I lie about my age but most people think I am 10 years younger than I am and if I told the truth, I’d never get a date with a younger woman.” I repeat: Let your true self shine through.
I thought I was an emotionally stable human being before this — that theory has since been challenged. Praying for wisdom and grace for us all as we walk this out.
This year has been my initiation into all things online dating, and let’s just say that the tears factor has been exponential.
Save yourself all of that grief and get ready for your next adventure.
You meet a great guy..drop your entire former life to be with him.
