"I’d been dating a guy for three months when we got into a bad argument.We decided that we’d talk the next day, when we were both calmer.Because I’m curious, I did some digging—I assumed it was his sister.
' Needless to say, we never did make it 'Facebook official.'” -Tweet and Tell"After what I thought was a fun date with a new guy, I turned to Internet intel and found his Twitter feed.
By the time I got home, I checked Facebook, where I saw he’d updated his status: 'Well, guess I’m single again. I never thought we’d broken up—I just assumed we were in the middle of a fight!
" -The Language of Breakups is Universal“I met a cute guy in Croatia while I was traveling, and we were having so much fun hanging out that I decided to cancel my hostel reservation for the rest of the week and stay at his place. The status updates were in Croatian, but I ran them through Google translate because I was curious what was on his mind.
But after connecting with thousands of women via my Facebook page and hearing their tales of missed dates, mixed messages, and misunderstood expectations, the horror stories seem to outnumber any purported success rate by a very wide margin. Don't we all hear how great the apps and sites are? You answer a few questions and then get to meet someone who is (supposedly) a great match.
The dating site's algorithm auto-magically pairs you up with like-minded people who have similar interests, hobbies, life goals... And with mobile apps like Tinder, it’s all based on proximity and the “first sight”phenomenon.
