Earlier this year I was over at my parents house having dinner when my Dad told me that I should consider using Christian Mingle. I was a little shocked to say the least and thought for a second he was kidding. He wasn't. He suggested it for my sister as well. And well she took his advice, found a nice guy, and now they are practically married.
About 8 months later and about 5 months after my sister joined and met her boyfriend the thought has popped back into my mind. Should I online date or not?
Now here me out friends. I am 23 years old so it is not like I am desperately needing to get married so I can have kids before my clock runs out. But being in grad school and working all the time when and where am I going to meet someone?
There is a part of me that really longs to have someone who loves me and wants to spend time with me. Life gets a little lonely at night when it's just Brutus and I. He doesn't exactly have much to add to the conversation.
But at the same time do I have the time for another person? Do I have the energy to put into dating someone? Am I ready to put myself out there?
I don't know. So this is when I come to you my lovely blog friends. Have you ever online dated? How did it go? Did you like it? What website did you use? Do you think I should give it a shot?
I cannot believe I am even entertaining this idea. I promised one friend I wouldn't even consider online dating till I was 25. But the loneliness is setting in and I will be graduating next May and I either need to find a husband or a roommate in order to not move back in with my parents.
