My buddy, Craig has disappeared. We used to keep in touch a couple times a week and play some tennis, but not anymore. After a match at the club yesterday, I saw him walk by with some girl to the hot tub. Interesting, I thought to myself. So he’s got a new flame!
After my match, I curiously hopped on back like any good nosy friend would to see what was up. Unfortunately, she was already gone. Drats! But there he was, with a big smile on his face, sipping some sangria he brought from home. “Wassssssup?” I asked Craig.
“Yo, Sam! Good seeing you man. Not much. I was just on a 3 hour date with a girl I met online! We chilled in the back, watched the Blue Angels, and enjoyed the bubbles.”, Craig explained.
“Oh really? Tell me more about this online dating stuff!” I inquired curiously.
Craig proceeded to tell me how he had recently signed up for this free online dating site called OKCupid, and how he was getting all these dates. “Two a week, at least!”, he mentioned. “There are so many women online, it’s ridiculous! I feel like a rockstar!”
After an hour of conversation and some further research on my own (6 months undercover), I’ve come up with Sam’s guide to understanding online dating.
