Unless you’re doing it the old-fashioned way, you don’t even have the opportunity to say or do the wrong thing during or after dinner anymore. They reject you upfront because you’re not six feet tall. Because I do the EXACT same thing to many of the women that reach out to me. Here’s the sick part: I don’t really have any business dating right now anyway. And when I think about it in those terms, I can see the unfairness that Megan was talking about.

This brings us to article two, where a math genius had to hack the “best” dating site of all to make the service remotely useful. He got engaged to a nice young lady….after almost a hundred bogus dates.
So, the other night, I went on my first date since 2001. For the uninitiated, online dating is exactly like regular dating—frustrating, expensive, and rife with rejection.

Despite my very best efforts to be upfront and honest about my situation, my mere presence on an online dating site is something akin to a lie, she said. Because it is hard being in the empty house sometimes. No matter how noble my intentions, I’m still essentially using women to try and satisfy the need for connection in my life, while offering very little in return, except pleasant company. I want to just live my life, doing what I want when I can and doing what I have to do the rest of the time.
But in the meantime, my online-dating site subscription doesn’t end for another month and a half.
