Dating Has Become A Joke

As I was sitting at the Grove on Mission last night, indulging in one of my guilty pleasures of eavesdropping, I heard the girl tell the guy “Gosh, this is like a part time job after a day job. For the past 1-2 years I have been going on dates every Tuesday and Thursday.” This was a Thursday, and they were obviously on one of those dates.  It was easy to tell that the guy has become very discouraged and kind of withdrew from the whole conversation from that point on.

The above incident was yet another reminder of how sad it is that thanks to online dating, going on dates turned from something relatively rare – something to be anxious and excited about and look forward to, to some kind of a joke or a chore – something that’s always available out there, when you are bored and have nothing better to do.
