- match.com (or some other online dating service): 35%
- go East! (do the same stuff, but across town): 33%
- blogparents.com (like eHarmony, but blogmom and blogdad do the matching); 19%
- Jump Back Ball (where a few of my friends have met their BFs/fiancees): 11%
I'm not sure how I feel about the results. I really am veeerrrryyyy leery of online dating, given the horrific experiences most of my friends have had.
(I realize that there are a few good stories mixed in there too. But for every "good" story, I hear about 20 bad ones. You do the math.)
But, in the spirit of YESvember, I will try it out for at least a couple of weeks next month. But I swear to God, if any guy emails me who has a profile pic wearing an Affliction t-shirt (or, worse, no shirt at all) and uses some corny-ass pick-up line in his profile and/or a message to me, that's grounds to quit the service ON. THE. SPOT.
(In case you're wondering, my profile pic will neither show me in an Affliction shirt nor shirtless.)
So since I've never done this before, any suggestions for which service is best?
