After my post on Tuesday “Single Ladies”, I’ve stumbled on several blogs – both old and new bemoaning the fact that nowadays it seems so difficult to meet a new partner. If you don’t have anyone available in your social circle or at work, which let’s face it could get very awkward, then the only option left seems to be online dating.
I tried E-Harmony for about a month last year and hated it. The site just sends people they think are suitable for you, you don’t get to browse profiles on there and their matching skills are well below par. There was literally no-one I even wanted to chat to plus you had to go through some long process before you even got to an email stage with someone. Not for me!
I am currently deciding whether to give Match.com a go. I’ve heard both success stories and horror stories from people who have tried the site, leaving me wondering if it’s actually down to luck. I’m not a lucky person, especially in love, so I’m dubious about going through endless profiles and bad dates. On the other hand, I just can’t see how else to meet someone. Everyone I know claims not to know any suitable guys , my close friends are settled down and in no mood to go to bars, and my work has no prospects. How else to you meet someone?
Help a single girl out coupled up readers. Tell me how you met your other half and maybe that will give me some inspiration for my love journey. Otherwise, I may end up a spinster with only cats for company 🙂 Or searching for sperm donors 🙂
How did you meet your loved one?
