Dating for weird
When I got bored, I searched for hot guys based on my zip code to see who was out there.
First, I found Hunter*, a model-hot guy with shaggy hair and washboard abs.
5% of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship say they met their significant other online.
When I tell someone I’m single, a common response is, “Have you tried online dating? ” The answer to that is that yes, I have tried online dating.
I met a few guys online and it was actually really weird.
Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.
To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
