Do  online daters all love life?

I’m feeling unusually warm and fuzzy today. I was on match.com and read several dating profiles that said “I love life”, one even said “More importantly, I love life.” The emphasis was inspired. I then visited Plenty of Fish and saw several more dating profiles with the same sentiment. Not to be outdone, one man said “I absolutely love life.” Wow, that’s love for sure.

According to the July 2010 edition of Lonely Planet, one of the happiest places on earth is Montreal. Yet, it’s clear to me that online dating sites are the happiest places. Ironically, Lonely Planet did not search there.

 

I don’t think I’ve been around such a “love for life” since watching Bush live it up with a group of African dancers. If you haven’t seen it, check it out here. (Apparently, he doesn’t drink.)

Though I can absolutely appreciate how much single people love life, I think it’s important to point out that few people would fill out profiles with “I hate life” or even “I dislike life” or “life sucks, want to date me?”. So to stress how much you love life seems somehow misplaced.
