I’m a big proponent of online dating. I think it’s a great way to meet someone, especially if you’re new in town/work from home like I do. But I also know there are a lot of myths and stereotypes about meeting someone online. For instance, a lot of people are afraid to try it because they think the sites are populated by creepmasters and weirdos. While there is definitely a wide range of freaks online, I’ve also met some legitimately cool people this way.
Right now I’m doing Match and OkCupid, but I also dabbled in Tinder back in the day. Though I’ve had pretty positive experiences overall, there are some times when I just get a gem of a message and feel like I have to share it on my Instagram account so the rest of the world can benefit from its glory. After a while, people started commenting to me that they found these messages highly entertaining. Finally, I decided to compile all of these gems into one account. It’s called Online Dating Truths, and you can check it out here.
Regardless of whether you’re doing online dating or not, I think you’ll be able to appreciate them. Oh, and don’t forget to tell all your friends about the account if you’re so inclined!
