I Used LinkedIn as a Dating Site, and It Worked Better Than Real Dating Sites
It's Metafilter's 20th anniversary! To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! How do I declare my marital status on an online dating site? I've been separated for over a year, am in the process of the divorce, and trying things out online. Some online dating sites have a section where you can declare that you're separated. OkCupid doesn't have this and I've been going as "single". Inevitably, the fact I'm separated comes up.
I used LinkedIn as a dating site for two months. You can find an affair AND the possibility of a better gig. Attractive, right? I use LinkedIn to look for work and attempt to network. Hello, lack of search functionality, LinkedIn! I went on three dates plus one pending with men I connected with on LinkedIn.
Let's just cut the mushy bullshit and get straight to the point: Online dating can truly suck. Don't get me wrong — the help is seriously great when you start to feel like you're ForeverAlone, but the entire process of creating a dating profile and dealing with less than ideal matches can be cumbersome. You're forced to answer fake "deep" questions that everyone lies about anyway, deal with creepy dudes and girls who think it's cute to terrorize your inbox, and navigate sites that just do not have what you're looking for. Here's the thing though: OkCupid is about to be your new best friend.
