Online Dating Is Just Like Online Shopping

Online Dating Is Just Like Online Shopping [EXPERT]
Love

A new online dating site allows women to choose their perfect fit first.

You can choose what you're looking for specifically. For instance the product's age occupation, diet, income, height, hair color and hair style. It's good to be clear in what you want, but I personally wouldn't want to pick a guy's hair or eye color, that's a little too controlling. 5 Rules For Choosing Your Online Dating Photos

Instead of having a personal description, every man has a product description. You can rate him with up to 5 stars. I just happened upon a very handsome 6'3', 40 year old product that's an entrepreneur like me, and not too far from home. I think I'll rate him 5 stars, then after that I will be able to evaluate him after we communicate. He's got a good evaluation so far, but I haven't heard his voice yet.

I clicked on the related items tab, and found my Mr. Right Now. He's a Capricorn, which is very compatible with my Virgo sign, but there isn't a picture in his product description, and he's only looking for one night stands. Oh well, too young anyway, I need to define my catalog search and look for some new older products but not too old like 79. I really need to reset my advanced search, this is not what I'm shopping for. Want to find the right man online?

I've refined the online dating man catalog and found Man4Real and I actually put him in my shopping bag. But I'm not sure what to do with my new addition, I don't think I can just whip out the check card. He didn't have anything under his product description, but I think he sure is handsome. I wonder how many women will view his profile after they read this article?
