Q:

Hey Samantha, I was wondering what you think about online dating? I am a young professional who doesn’t get out much and I was thinking about joining one of those sites. What are your thoughts?

Hannah, Queens NY

A:

Hannah, I think online dating is perfect fine! Let’s be honest with ourselves, in today’s day and age people just don’t have the time to go out for social hours every night, and half the time after a long day of work you are usually so tired that the last thing you can think about is socializing and trying to meet Mr. Right. Not everyone can have that the dream “cute meet” like bumping buggies (shopping cart) into one another in the produce section of the grocery store, so you have to rely on alternative ways to get the chance to meet people.

Online dating has given society the chance to maintain a social life without the stress of having to go out every single night. You’re a young professional trying to establish yourself in a big world and dating is probably not the number 1 priority on your list, but it would definitely be a nice addition to what you already have going on. I say you should definitely go for it! Let me know how it goes, I would love to hear if it works out for you. Good luck and happy dating!
