We live in an age where everything is available to us at our fingertips. New shoes – Express delivery they will be here in two days, order your books, movies, clothes, and your mate. All with the swipe of your finger, or click of your mouse. Ok, obviously we don’t actually order our mate (I am not here to talk about mail order partners) but I am here to talk about the ever-changing world of dating.
If you are reading this at home happily married, or if you have been off of the market for over five years know this; the game has changed.
Has it changed for the better, or for the worse? Well, that all depends on the perspective.
The good: It is now much easier to find a suitable partner. If you lead a lifestyle that does not allow you to go out and engage with strangers on a regular basis, online dating can be great. I say CAN BE because this leads me to the bad.
The bad: The quantity is there, but what about QUALITY? Yes, there are some fantastic people waiting to be discovered online, but to get them requires a whole heck of a lot of patience and time. and this is where the bad may start to overshadow the good.
The ugly: We have become so disposable. You are just a swipe away from finding someone new. Having this luxury to connect with so many people at once has desensitized us. There is always someone ahead, behind, hell maybe even beside you.
SO, here I am. Ready to share the good, the bad, and the ugly. Hopefully, at the end of this experiment I can conclude as to whether online dating is a waste of time, or maybe, just maybe I will walk away encouraging all of the single ladies and men out there to give it a try.
