Meet-Cute: a convention of romantic comedies in which two potential romantic partners meet in a contrived way in unusual or comic circumstances.
The last few weeks I've started to consider doing something I haven't attempted in years: dating (dum, dum, dummmmmmm). It's been awhile, ladies and gents. While I'd like to say I've just been waiting around for the right chap, I think the truth is I just haven't really felt like it was worth my time and effort. Whenever I got truly lonely, I always had a huge circle of people to fill the void. Sure, there was no special someone, but part of me thinks that really isn't in the cards for me anyway. I have tried dating a few times, but it's never really worked, usually running a distant second to an evening in with a new dvd or a good book.
Lately, though, I've been thinking about it more often, the reason being, of course: I no longer have a huge circle of people to fill me up when loneliness hits. However, I am not naturally gregarious, and have no desire to try hitting bars or something to try to meet people. Possible solution? The dreaded dating site. Yes, folks, I'm actually thinking of paying a website so that I can talk to strangers in the hope that I will find someone who occasionally wants to go see a movie with me. It's such a weird concept, and I know that a lot of people do it these days, but I still feel like it would be better to meet in a bookstore or in line at a Starbucks or something.
Being as this isn't a film, however, I guess I'll have to put up a profile and hope for the best.
What do you think, dear readers? Are dating sites the last bastion of the desperate, or just the way people meet nowadays? Would you join a dating site?
