A friend of mine is seriously considering giving online dating a try. She has never done anything of the sort before and she seems to be getting cold feet almost every time when she is about to do it, but I am still hoping that she is not going to back out before she even gives online dating a proper try. We sometimes talk about her dating endeavors and we tend to come to similar conclusions. For example, we both tend to agree that in order to get the best date, you need to get to know the person you choose to socialize with. One of the nicest things about online dating is that you can clearly specify what kind of person you are looking for. Once you already have a list of your requirements in the written form, it is time to start the quest of find somebody to love for the rest of your life.
