Still, you aren't ready to give up on the dream of finding your soulmate, so you soldier on, trudging through the masses, hoping that the next "wink" or "poke" will come from "the one."I've experienced the world of online dating firsthand.When I was single and had just moved from Chicago back to Los Angeles, I carried on a long-distance relationship for a few months that eventually wound down.
My aunt and cousin were both having fun meeting lots of nice guys online, so after much persuading, they talked me into trying it. I didn't have a full-time job yet, which was a good thing, because weeding through all of the guys who wrote to me was a daunting task.
Nine-tenths didn’t even take my requests into consideration; if they liked my photo, that's all they needed to make contact.
