Recently took a trip into the online dating world on a website called sparkology.com, also dabbled in another site called howaboutwe.com. Both are very interesting, and hey, Sparkology even has an iPhone app. The only thing keeping me away from maintaining these online experiences is that you have to pay for them. Don’t get me wrong, $15/month is certainly a very cheap price, especially if it means you can scam on dudes from the comforts of your morning commute, but… I’m one of the cheapest people on the planet, and while I don’t want to be single forever, paying for an online flip-book of dudes doesn’t really seem like a beneficial way for me to spend some dough.
It should be said, I’m not against online dating at all – everyone knows someone who knows someone that met their significant other on a dating site and it clearly worked out. Just not sure I’m ready and willing to shell out some greenbacks to a website in order to find a man.
Hm – also didn’t help that my psycho cousin decided to play around on my Sparkology account and start poking/winking/whatever’ing at people. Maybe that was the source of being turned off from online dating. Okay, well, I mistakingly gave my cousin my login information because I thought she was a sane person and would go on the site just to look at it one time which seems like a relatively sane idea considering she’s in a very happy relationship. Far be it from me to think she wouldn’t abuse her privileges and log on to my account multiple times per day (more than me) and comment on all of my potential suitors, “He’s way too old for you!” “He’s a smidge too ___” and so on. She’s totally going to get pissed when she reads this, but whatever – you’re insane.
Do you use a dating site? How’d you meet your significant other – that is, if you have one..
