I met my wife in college -- you know, while going about my daily business. My brother-in-law met his wife through an online dating site. I agree with the comment above: pretty lazy article -- a subject not hardly worth fussing over in the first place, with a few, poor arguments against it thrown in at the end. Can we get over the old, sophomoric lamentation of the internet being a scary modern phenomenon that's making everything too easy and too fast?
In my zeal to find out as much about Andy's good fortune as possible I innocently asked: "So, how'd you two meet? Realizing I stepped into something awkward I thought to myself: OMG they met in prison; or on a street corner.
About two years ago I arranged to meet for coffee with a woman I had corresponded with online.
I arrived early and sat at a table in a conspicuous spot.
But I do have a friend who refuses to post a picture for professional reasons and he rarely gets any reponses.
In fact, one woman admonished him for not posting a picture: "If I have to put one up there you should to," she said.
