I think it’s funny when people lie about how they met their partner, because they’re embarrassed to admit it was via an online dating site.
It’s not 1990! It’s normal and pretty cool that we have so many options to meet like-minded people.
My parents met in the early 1980′s through what I call the old-school version of online dating. It was a dating service in Tijuana, Mexico where people essentially had “profiles” – pictures with brief descriptions in a book. That’s how my dad chose my mom, and well, the rest is,as they say, history.
Today I read about Hitch.me on Mashable. Nothing wrong with the service, but I have an issue with the video.
It promotes being single as a “problem” and puts a ton of emphasis on college degrees and driving nice cars. Really? Those are the most valuable attributes of your future partner?
What do you think?
