Online love is a battlefield too?

I have to hand to the single people who are online dating these days. Seriously, you are true soldiers of love! A lot of us go online, create a profile, answer the billion personality questions, load a picture, then actually communicate with potential dates. That takes focus and effort that some people don’t even put into “offline” dating!

I think people are used to doing it now so the rules of engagement, as it were, are easier to determine and perhaps better then it used to be. What kind of things should you always consider when deciding to date online? How do you gauge real interest? It seems that the physical attraction (or lack thereof) is the biggest hurdle to clear in the beginning. What do you think makes it easier to offset that challenge?

Have you tried online dating recently? Do you believe it has lead to good matches? If you had to put a profile up, what sorts of things would get your attention? Humor and wit, racy pictures?

The matchmaker, Paul Brunson who guest blogged for us (aka Real Life “Hitch” ) has taken to Twitter to connect single people from all over!  It’s very interesting to see the questions that people want to ask the bachelor/bachelorette.

If you meet someone online, what are the most important questions to ask to get a feel for how compatible (crazy?) they are?

Don’t some phoooine females go to NB for real???

Now their hopes of prosperity in marriage are going up in smoke if the bishop is exposed as a charlatan.

Now imagine the money gone up in smoke funding these gay trysts??

I can’t think of worse evil!

Evething except anything Italian! Iam the first born child so we don’t play and mom taught me’ evething!

Runda popo’s 2.31 question to Delvin reminds me’ of the feud 2 guys were having about a girl. The feud started when they discovered they were wearing same color and label socks, apparently coz the two timing chic was sending them both same presents.

Looks like Delvin and Runda phlucked same big grandma! Lol

Do I believe Bishop is guilty?
Yes.without a doubt.

Just assume for a second that these guys are former church members, aggrieved about something?

Why would they go there, and not accuse him of something else?

No smoke without fire!
