Hell, I feel like I was a pioneer of the online dating thing back in 1994. I met a doctor from Boston the semester after I dropped out of Syracuse University.
I even moved to California as a result of a relationship.
And ever since I have flirted with the online dating thing because that's what I KNEW.
I've met some people in person. Had short-term relationships, and have a decent track record of remaining friends with people when the romance proves not the most effective part of the relationship. But in all honesty, I haven't had a long term, in-person relationship REALLY since my first boyfriend, Dave from college.
And so here I am, about 16 years into my dating experience and a friend of mine sends me the link to Act for Love. It's a personal site for folks working for social justice. There are yentes for EVERY demographic. I SWEAR!
I have to say, I am NOT ready to pay my hard earned money to join a singles site. Since I work 5 hours to earn the Prix Fixe menu for 1 at Chez Panisse on Mondays (after taxes), I don't think it's worth the dough. In fact, I am trying the radical approach of meeting my partner in person, this way I get bang for my buck: I'm already out and doing something, so maybe the likelihood of my partner doing the same is high? Who knows?
A-Ha's "The Sun Never Shone That Day" is playing on Lastfm.com right now. I honestly can say I don't know this song. Now I'm in the mood for Icehouse's "Crazy" for some reason...oooh! But I found the video for "Great Southern Land" from the Young Einstein movie! WOOOOOOT!
