More online dating-ness

flir_177As many have suggested and/or requested, I have finally written a bit in-depth about my experience with online dating over the past several months. Below’s a snippet. Read the full post here.

Joining online dating websites was something I did several months ago as part of a larger project to challenge my shy, serial monogamist-with-a-tendency-to-date-friends’-exes self. Take a chance, make a profile, I told myself.

The first site I used was JDate, which has no real matching mechanism (perhaps it does now? Regardless, it didn’t last fall). You fill out some boxes indicating your interests, education, and various demographic info–should you choose to provide these things–and upload photos. You can search for people within a certain age-range and within a certain distance from you.

I went on JDates with five different guys over the course of about two months before canceling my account. Nothing went horribly–some meet-ups went well enough to warrant second dates. One produced this two-week-long micro-relationship that started with tea and good conversation and ended with us remarking over a sushi dinner how we somehow skipped to that point in a marriage where you have absolutely nothing to talk about.
