Internet dating lying about age
My sister met her man when they worked together on a newspaper in Myrtle Beach, he a reporter and she a photographer. Most people know at least one online dating success story -- their second cousin, their boss' daughter or their best friend's sister who found love on the Internet.
When you go to a bar with your friends, wearing your favorite semi-slutty outfit and made up like you're ready for the red carpet, you secretly hope this might be the night you'll meet that certain someone. Ostensibly, you're going out with the girls to have fun, not looking for a man.
Some of them are too busy with jobs or hobbies to go trolling for dates in bars. Some are divorced and have kids to take to soccer practice or help with their homework. Are you convinced that all the nicest guys are vegan?
Do you want to find someone who loves Dickens or Didion?
Believe me, it's better that you don't find him, because the kind of men you're likely to meet in that kind of situation are not the kind of men who will usually turn out to be the love of your life.
First, the attraction will be mostly based on looks, since conversation that rises above mindless banter is hard in a bar.
