When my father heard I was online dating he was deeply sceptical.He told me a story about a friend of his whose internet date had turned out to be morbidly obese as evidence that it was an avenue to be avioded at all costs.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.
So you’ve got to the point in life where online dating is an option. You used to think online dating was for weirdos but everyone’s doing it! If they’re a terrible person, there’s only one thing to do – fall into a hole in the ground. Rejection Yes, all your friends say you’re good looking, intelligent and funny.
And sometimes the reject-ee will get mad, whether you’ve met them or not.
The wrath We said everyone gets rejection, and sometimes that rejection will come from you.
This stage normally starts after enough bad dates that it’s actually becoming a waste of time.
And the dating website have sent you a few emails enticing you back – time to give this one another go. After all, you’ve come to terms with the fact that the other person is probably as bored as you, and will thank you for giving them an excuse to leave.
