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.

The products, I mean men, can send you a crush, but they can't contact you unless you show interest first. This site puts everything in our hands. It's great that guys can add you as a favorite, and you know, so you don't have to do all the searching. That's less work and more fun for the us. You can even shop in your underwear.

When I first started online dating a few years ago, I tried to email every guy that sent me a message and it was like a full time job. I was getting over 50 emails a day. Three to four hours of my days were spent emailing every one of them with a short sweet message, telling them I wasn't interested. But that has all changed and I don't get the avalanche of emails like I used to, until I change my profile picture to something more interesting. I can't even imagine what it would be like for a woman in New York City. 5 Signs You Are A Dating Snob

Now I send less emails, sorry guys, there's just not enough time. I'm busy with my shopping. Make time to take care of yourself when you are online dating and single.
