What internet dating descriptions really mean
from Brooklyn, NY for suggesting this week’s topic: Online dating, once a fringe and stigmatized activity, is now over a billion industry.
Over 40 million Americans have given online dating a try, and over a of the American couples married between 20 met online.
The way the current trend is heading, what will dating be like in 2030, and will that be a better or worse time to be on the dating market than 1995? I think the term “online dating” is part of the problem and makes people who don’t know much about it think it refers to people forming entire relationships online and only meeting in person much later.
It differs from documentary television in that the focus tends to be on drama, personal conflict, and entertainment rather than educating viewers.
The genre has various standard tropes, including "confessionals" (also called talking heads or interview segments) used by cast members to express their thoughts, which often double as the shows' narration.
I’ve already expressed my argument for why in two posts: one on how critical it is to find the right life partner and how seriously we should take that quest, and another on why going to bars is a terrible life experience.
The first step in ending up with the right person is meeting the right person, and for something so important in our lives, we’ve had for doing it efficiently and intelligently.
When I read my profile, this is what a few key words mean in my description (remember this is for the sake of humor-I'm really not that bad-quite)Long Term- at least overnight, maybe forever, or until you hate me Weight: thin to average because the average American is way overweight-i'm just fat headed Smokes: regularly to often-only when I'm awake and in a legal area............
I am a smoker, but I respect other peoples rights-means you have the right to remain silent Interests: I'll tell you later-after you fall for me we can discuss my fetishes I am different - that means that I do not tend to agree with popular opinion or beliefs and I am often ridiculed or rejected for not being afraid to admit this. I am willing to listen to anyones story, past history, or beliefs and try to understand where they are coming from.
Women come to me all the time for relationship advice, as I have been married three times (well, technically four -- I don't count the annulment) and dated hundreds of men.
I try to explain that this is not a badge of honor; if you want relationship advice, go to someone who married her college boyfriend and is still married to him 30 years later.
Be that as it may, there are many women out there who, at 50-something, are dipping a wary toe into the brave new world of online dating. Unless he's actually riding a horse, any man wearing a cowboy hat is bald.
