The New M.E. Generation











{June 4, 2010}   Putting Yourself Online 2 – Click!

So, now that I’ve decided to search for love the electronic way, which site am I going to choose from the so many options?

I remember way back then when online dating first started. It became a novelty as big as flat screen TV’s, laptop computers, DVD’s, and other electronic gadgets.

People became fascinated by them, but equally scared as well. In general, people had kept their lives pretty much private and, if you wanted to ‘get on with the game,’ you had to ‘expose yourself’ or put yourself ‘out there’ to get dates.

I remember reading articles about people lying about themselves in their profiles, setting accounts under different names at different sites, and posting old pictures, among other things.

So this definitely had me scared of going on a date with a guy that would turn out to be a complete fake, weirdo, or anything else in between.

But, I also read that, as the years have gone by, some sites had become quite successful, and that people were serious about online dating, thus doing it ‘the right way’ to get the results they want.

So I guess the best way for me to decide on a particular site is to check out the photos of men.

It’s easy; you choose the range of ages and check off other characteristics and then hit the ‘submit’ button.

(And the results are…) Whoa! Oh my! Now that’s a lot of guys (maybe too many?).

Hmm, it’s kind of strange though, so many people in the same position as myself. Am I supposed to feel happy or sad? Don’t know.

Hey, maybe this is the start of a new ‘adventure’ in my life.

Who knows, maybe the one I’m looking for is just a mere ‘click’ away.
