Yesterday evening I was bored and was discussing with a buddy on skype about her encounters with online dating. I was joking with her that "girls have it easy on dating sites" etc. etc. I had never actually done anything in the internet dating world but I had set up a actual profile a number of years back and didn't use it much aside from getting a few nice messages and determined it wasn't really for me.
