Sitting home alone in your PJs? Try creating an online dating profile!

Have you been sitting at home on Friday night, petting your pooch, eating a bag of veggie chips and crying over a sappy chick flick? Are you wondering if you should try online dating? If so, it's time for a change. Here are three great reasons to look for men online. 25 Life Changing Bits Of Dating Advice From Mom

1. Online dating is better than shopping. You love to look around online and find something that really catches your eye, right? You should be online dating because it's even better than buying shoes.

Talk about eye candy! These men come in every shape and size ... and I've never had a dress that passionately kissed me goodnight after taking me out for a divine 95% cocoa-topped, frothy cappuccino.

A friend of mine coined the phrase "hey, a girls gotta eat." Meeting a man for a free meal is not a good reason to go on a date with someone you met online, but the mocha lattes and dinners are just the icing on the single gal's cake. Why You Should Google Your New Guy

2. It's better than spending one more night with reruns. Please, ladies, do you really need to see that Mork and Mindy episode again? This is a big reason why you should be online dating. Didn't you get enough of those goofy television shows when you were a kid?

It's time to make your own show. Believe me, some of the guys you meet from online dating websites are way more entertaining than you could ever imagine. One guy I met showed me a YouTube video of himself running half naked across a college football field during half-time. The marching band didn't miss a beat, he got arrested, and it was much more exciting than watching Cops.

3. Online dating sites are making it more fun than ever. The online dating powerhouse, has launched seven new games to help you figure out if you and the guy with the screename moviebuff101 have any online chemistry. This adds a new twist to the classic site that has more men who can afford paying for a dating website than Zappos' selection of blingy black strappy heels. This fun new addition is another reason why you should be online dating.

The clock is ticking on your wall and maybe your biological clock is in overdrive. Those kids you've been thinking about having are not going to magically appear, unless you plan on being a single mommy inseminated by your best gay male friend. If you ever want to have babies, or just have sex again, you should be online dating and putting yourself back on the market.

The easiest way to get started is in your pajamas, or heck, you can even do it naked and no one will be the wiser. You can also build your confidence from the comfort of your own home. Dating Is Like Roulette. 3 Rules of Dating Casino Style
