I am 6’ 3” (1.9 meters), weigh 182 pounds and am very physically active. I know many people who have, and virtually all reviews have been at least somewhat positive.
When I seem skeptical, my friends always point out that it’s the year 2013, that maybe ten years ago finding someone you could theoretically spend the rest of your life with online might have been weird, but not now.
It is 2013, and according to the New York Times over 80% of single Americans have tried online dating.
Hayden Aldredge joined six websites, some more popular than others, to see if this craze has caught on in Bolivia.
The results are not exactly promising for all those digitally minded bachelors and bachelorettes in this country. Profile: Hayden Aldredge18/M/Straight/Single La Paz, Bolivia Just a lonely young man in search of love in Bolivia.
Interests include good food, reading, writing, sports, music, and the outdoors.
I set out to find out just how easy to use they really were, who was using them, and whether I could actually contact and then eventually arrange a date with real people.
Currently working as a journalist in La Paz, but originally from New York.Badoo Google 'la paz bolivia dating websites' and this is the first result to come up. In just two days I received 12 profile views, most on any site for me, and was chatting with two actual La Paz citizens by that time. The interface is very good, it is easy and free to create a profile, and there are no annoying advertisements.All of my friends who are making such statements are of course from the United States.I tried asking people that I know in Bolivia about internet dating, whether they had participated or even what their opinions on it were.
Not a single Bolivian that I spoke to had used a dating website.When pressed on the issue, they all seemed to not know much about it, other than that only 'slightly off' or just plain 'weird' people used those sites. I decided to join every website offering dating services to people in La Paz.
