Sex & the Single Woman: Is an Online Dater a Deal-breaker?
Would you date someone who had an online dating profile…if you met them offline?
I recently went out with a guy I met at a club. I was hanging out at his place when his roommate mentioned that the two of them had just joined Match.com. He even showed me his profile.
I have to say, I was a little weirded out. I know lots of people date online these days, but surely he would have been better off not telling me? It made me wonder a) what he was looking for, b) who he was talking to, and c) whether or not he’d make the leap to delete his profile now that he’d met me.
I don’t think I’ll be seeing this guy anymore for other unrelated reasons – he has the maturity level of a preschooler and seems to think that insulting comments count as flirting – but maybe he’ll have better luck on Match!
