Often when your married friends hear that you are thinking of online dating they suddenly have an idea for a date for you . . . except they have a limited number of single friends to introduce you to!
They have not dated in forever because they married after college and have no experience with online dating
They smugly think it is for losers
They may have had recent bad relationship or be negative about dating . . . but they are not YOU!
Do talk to friends in positive relationships who met online---which is probably half your single friends! Skip talking to the other half!
If you know they have had bad online dating experience, or they constantly complain.You are not your friend. You are going to have different experiences than your friend if you are positive and choosing the right dates from the right sites with the right dating profile!
