    Amusing Online Dating Listing

    The following amusing excerpt is from an online dating advert on Craigslist.

    Woman: I’m a beautiful (spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I’m articulate and classy. I’m not from New York. I’m looking to get married to a guy who makes at least half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind that a million a year is middle class in New York City, so I don’t think I’m overreaching at all.

    Are Online Dating Sites Really Worth The Trouble?

    The whole concept of finding a partner online goes all the way back to the 90’s, when the Internet happened to be in its embryonic stages. Among the Australian pioneers was slinky.com.au, which is now a massive conglomerate that sports many hundreds of thousands of active users from all over the country. Today, there is indeed no lack in the number of people who are going online and are willing to put down their personal details.

    But, are online dating sites really worth the trouble? Does it represent a forward step in the world of dating? So, is online dating a good enough alternative for single’s bars and pubs? Some people still think that Internet dating is only for those who are desperate and would do anything to get a date. No doubt there are many people out there who are like this, but online dating is also for those ordinary folks who wouldn’t mind giving it a try.
