girlfriend and I met on e Harmony, so I’ll be the first to acknowledge that online dating can absolutely be a worthwhile experience. I dabbled with it for almost , and prior to Melissa, the most memorable thing I came away with was a tome’s worth of craptacular dating stories.
(Though, in that respect, I guess I do have e Harmony and Match to thank for my writing career.) Armed with years of slow-churned cynicism, I took to the internet to see if others shared my experiences.
A recent British study found that, in just the United Kingdom alone, online dating scams clobber 230,000 people a year, with a total damage of billion per year.
So if you’re new to online dating, prepare yourself for disappointment.
And don’t take it personally if most of the people you message never reply since they may be not even be real.
For a mere ,000, you get to bypass all those e-hoops the e-dating sites make you e-jump through.
And your date will never know the difference (hopefully).
