Last summer as I boarded my girlfriend's SUV, she announced, "You have to listen to this song.It will make you laugh." She popped in a country music CD and I giggled my way through Cooler Online, a song about a guy who works at Pizza Hut, drives a Hyundai, lives with his mom and dad and is 5'3".
I've heard many times that there are a lot of fish in the sea, or numerous men to date in the world.
Certainly, there are innumerable "fish" in cyberspace, where millions of singles converge to meet daily.
“It’s just that more people are using online dating …
so people are noticing it more.”Shah said societal pressures may help explain why people lie about who they are or bend the truth about their appearance.“Right now, there’s such a tight criteria,” Shah said about many who seek their ideal partner based on looks.
Instead of always fishing in the “work” pond, or the “Friday-night bar-scene” pond, switch it up and also fish in the “volunteer at the animal shelter” pond or the “local community college digital photography course” pond every now and then. Step outside of your comfort zone and try new things.
You have heard this before, but have you done anything about it?
She didn’t “meet the spec.” When he does meet someone he is interested in (he gave an example of a “perfect” woman he met at a work function and who was really centered, active in her church, and had a lot of great stuff going on in her life) he said they would go out on a few dates and then she would tend to back off and disappear.
He said he would be brushed off and he wasn’t sure why. One, perhaps in his haste, eagerness, and delight at finding what he thought might be the “perfect” woman, had he come on too strong and scared her off?
But when he's dating online, his life is another story.
Behind the computer, he's smooth, cool, works in Hollywood, drives a Maserati, has a black belt in karate and probably earns at least six figures.
It was about switching up your dating routine and finding new ways to meet new people.
