Nowadays I live in the states, and if your single and have never tried online dating people will ask "why".The chance of terrible dates is still real, but there's such a huge volume of people there you can still meet someone wonderful if you bide your time and are smart with your interactions and profile. In today's busy world, online or internet dating is becoming more and more popular.I’ve had an onslaught of terrible dating experiences in the last year (including someone who turned out to be a drug dealer, someone who was mad I didn’t want to come hang out at his bedbug-infested apartment, and a commitment-phobe friend who constantly appears to be doing an uncanny Jekyll and Hyde impression).
