Mingle2 was created by 2 singles passionate about creating a new “online dating” culture.
If I had to think back to my first online date, it happened my freshman year in college in 1994.
Online dating gives people the option to talk to hundreds of people simultaneously, all freaking day. You pay one small price, and you can have everything from chicken to dried steak.
If you wanted to have a date every day of the week, it’s all possible thanks to sites like Ok Cupid, Match, Plenty of Fish, e-Harmony, Craigslist and the list goes on. But with having options at your disposal, you have to know when to step back and just say no. So many people don’t know how to step back and say no.
Back then online dating consisted of IRC chatrooms.
I alternated between crossing them (bad for my back) and tucking an ankle under one buttock (really bad for my back).
I did more yoga, wrote more blogs, parented, taught creative writing, started a book group, failed at Weight Watchers, made some new friends and in general, became an even more well-rounded and informed person.
A perfect catch brimming over with information and inner peace, I decided to try online hell again.
They’re always on the look for the next best thing. A few weeks ago I had a conversation with a close guy friend and he was talking about all of his online conquests.
I pulled my back out on a date with the a-hole from "Bridesmaids." You know, the Jon Hamm character?
If you have asked for someone between the ages of 28-35 and you get respondents that are 45, 50 and onwards, or 20 onwards, discard them.
