Dating Is Hard

Stumbling Through The Adventures And Misadventures Of Dating With God's Grace

You’re So Much Cooler Online June 6, 2012

Or not.

I sign up. Basically because someone (that someone being my mom) offered to pay for it. And as a bonus I signed up on a free site as well. The problem with online dating? No one I am looking to date is typically online. Farmers, ranchers, cowboys…are you hearing me?

Got nothing.

I took the chance and the hit to my credit card once because I just couldn’t stand it any more not knowing. After a three-month membership I had all the sudden gotten three emails. So I signed back up and to my dismay it was much like these guys. […]
