So recently, I’ve found that trying to find someone who is actually worth talking to in clubs is not only impossible but if you think you can do it, you’re also incredibly naïve.
I’m 20, I’m not looking for marriage, kids and a white fence. However, people who want, or can, carry out a decent two-sided conversation are, apparently, in short supply.
Instead, I decided to turn to online dating. I won’t lie, I was embarrassed to admit it at first. I thought people would bee me as desperate, pathetic or would think that I just couldn’t find someone on my own.
Well, stuff that. We are in the 21st century. Technology has taken over every other aspect of our lives, why not let it take over our love lives as well?! And for me, it’s been rather successful!
I did find a wonderful guy and we dated for six months. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out but it was a good relationship while it lasted.
Online dating actually helped me get over the break up. No, I didn’t go out and sleep with everyone on there. I talked to people, went on a few dates, and generally had a good time.
Sure, some people online are idiots, just like in the clubs their vocabulary seriously lacks and don’t even get me started with punctuation. But sometimes, you might actually find someone who makes you laugh and you have a real connection with.
Nowadays, who the hell cares where you find that special someone? You can meet in a club, on the sidewalk, after having a shameful one night stand with them or you can meet them online. If anyone has a problem with that then it’s their problem not yours.
If you are happy, then other people’s opinions really don’t matter.
