As I mentioned in my last entry, I’m thoroughly enjoying the feeling of renewal that comes with a new season. Spring is a wonderful time to make a fresh start – and that’s what I’m doing on several fronts.
I recently went on two dates with guys I connected with on HowAboutWe.com. Much like most of the bachelors I’ve met through the site, both were personable, fun and engaged in taking advantage of what this great city has to offer. That makes sense given HowAboutWe’s premise: posting date activities and meeting likeminded people with similar interests.
Still, much as I have enjoyed the men I’ve met on HowAboutWe, I am also ready for a new online dating venue. Dating websites have inevitably become the virtual equivalent of the bar scene. So, after a while (in this case almost a year) of frequenting one, you can’t help wanting to try something else.
I recently stumbled upon a commercial for – no joke – FarmersOnly.com, a website targeting the agriculturally inclined. I’m not in their target demographic, of course, but it is equal parts fascinating and disturbing how niche-oriented the online dating world has become. Call me cynical, but I think this checklist approach to finding love is only making singles more disconnected.
If it sounds like I’m a little weary of the process, not to mention ruminating about it, well, I am. Which is why I’m in the midst of another spring makeover project: revamping my little corner of the blogosphere.
Next month, I will unveil a brand new online direction for this single gal in the city. I will be celebrating this milestone with a series of great giveaways. Looking forward to having you along for the ride, more details to come soon!
