It's incredibly amazing to me that there's an entire industry based on people's loneliness. As if loneliness is a disease and these internet companies are out there selling a cure - match.com, JDate, eHarmnoy, 8 Minute dating. Oh, and there's an indirect marketing strategy provided by Friendster, Multiply, even through blogs. Don't get me wrong. I'm sure these are great outlets for some people and in fact, I've knew people hooking up through the internet.
Call me immature or closed minded, but right now, until I'm comfortable saying "we met on xxxxxx.com" it looks like I'm doing this dating thing the old fashioned way. Again, I can change my mind in a minute (like always). What's wrong with the "old-fashioned way." Hmm.... but actually, the "old-fashioned way" was through a matchmaker. Perhaps I'll have to reconsider my approach.
But speaking of approaches, how do I meet "My One And Only?" Or just a date or something. It seems like with everything else in my life, I have a game plan. Picking a career. Running a marathon (LOL). So why do we not have a game plan for finding "Our One and Only?"
Should we spare ourselves with destiny and faith. Oh my. That'll be scary.
