Any woman who ever told me that she hated online dating felt justified by her negative experiences. And while there’s something safe about not dating – no disappointment, heartbreak, and jackasses, to name three things – solitude doesn’t lead one to relationships. So, as I’ve said a thousand times, your job is to be in it for the long haul, instead of thinking that a lone month on a dating site should magically pop out your future spouse. I believe Shakespeare dealt with the same issue in his time.
But if you’re on Match and you haven’t been introduced to one attractive person, it probably couldn’t hurt you to post yourself on Chemistry as well.Presuming you can handle the a) time and b) money of being on multiple sites, it’s not like there’s a real downside to it.The trickiest scenario is when you have too many dates and you can’t keep track of who you met where.Hey Tracy, I generally don’t answer three questions for the price of one, but since they’re pretty straightforward and I don’t have to worry about hurting any feelings, I’d figure I’d knock ‘em all out at once.So, since you’ve already answered your own question for #1, I’m certainly not going to refute you.
And while it’s great to be able to back up my big claims with statistics, I’m just gonna go with logic on this one: While I can’t guarantee the results of six months on Match.com, I can promise that you will ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, 100% NEVER meet a person online if you quit online dating entirely.You can meet him at the grocery store or at a party, but this relies on random happenstance, which, unfortunately, doesn’t yield as many first dates as we’d like.So, as I see it, even if your chances of meeting Mr.Right on e Harmony are 1 in 100, that’s infinitely better odds than if you’re not on e Harmony.Detractors will talk about the effort and the frustration and the liars and the rejection – and they’d be right.All I can do is point to the alternative – no dates – as the reason why one persevere.
