    I have no personal experience (but probably will be internet dating when I have more time/have finished some classes). But out of the 3 of my cousins that have gotten married in the past 2 years, 2 met online--and all of them and their new spouses are great, intelligent, interesting people. So, it does work, but you'll have to wade through some duds (just like in real life!)

    Where did you get that from? I thought her description of it was pretty spot-on.

    I have been with the same person since Senior year in high school, so I don't know much on the dating side of things. But, I can tell you that back in high school, it was easy to meet my partner (and potential partners). I would go to class with people around my age, and work part time jobs with people around my age. We would have several things in common; being that hating your job, liking a certain class, or heck, living in the same neighborhood. It was easy to make friends when you're constantly around the same groups of people with similar things in common, and this held true for me even through college.

    But, I am out of college. I don't have classes or some community with similar ages, or things in common. I go to work, there are huge age gaps, people don't 'hang out' after work like they did at the grocery store. There's not much in common, because everyone does a different job, works different hours, and lives in a different town (most people commute from somewhere within a 50 mile radius, any direction). I don't know how I would meet a partner, and hell, I haven't made a new friend since college.

    Such is life. So I can see how online dating would be beneficial in the adult world, for sure. You get to that point where you're doing your own thing, and going to a bar or dance club alone is just awkward. It gets hard to meet people and form relationships, when you're no longer in a set schedule with a set group of people with at least some things in common. I wonder if they have online friend meeting communities, seriously?

    Maybe, but given her track record, it seemed like more double standards. I've created fake iCupid accounts before, with a photo of some overly macho goon, and you wouldn't believe the amount of retarded women that flocked to the profile and posted the most asinine comments and practically begged for sex. Even after I repeatedly insulted them. It's not a male only thing, by a long shot.

    Wait, wait, are you saying that both men and women can be moronic, shallow, and sex-crazed?? That men and women are often equal in their asininity and nymphomania?

    What are you, a man-hating feminist or something?

    Is there a descriptor that I'm missing that will say that I think that human beings can be equally intelligent, moronic, self-absorbed, insightful, incompetent, or talented regardless of whether they are pink, brown, black, male, female, able, disabled, gay, straight, asexual, atheist, pagan, christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu (and so forth, and so forth, P.C. police) and believes in calling people on their discriminatory bullshit? Because that's what I am.

    The "man-hating feminist" trope gets my hackles up. Perhaps we should call ourselves "classical feminists", or "equalitarians", then, because the word "feminist" is tied up with so much rhetoric and BS.

    Still, if you believe that the sexes can be equally moronic and that double gender standards are bullshit, you are a feminist in the classical and technical sense. (as opposed to the distorted 7th-wave sense)

    As far as I can tell, the Feminist movement ended decades ago. Great things were accomplished, and now us ladies can go to school and apply for the same jobs as the menfolk, not to mention vote.
