Can I Buy You a Virtual Drink?


Has someone asked you on a virtual date? Sounds like a cheapskate to us.

So weird. That's how we sum up virtual dating. Apparently, stats show that the dating trend is taking off, but we don't believe it. Sites like offer users a platform to not just “online date” but to go to a bar, chat it up, and flirt with another user.

C'mon, guys! We understand the advantages to online dating, but once you've found a potential “good one,” it's time to get out and go met him/her—for real.

And any guy who is inclined to hide behind an avatar and screen name might be fudging more than his height or hairline...

Thoughts? Comments? Would you or have you virtually dated?
