Time to sit, relax, and share exciting (or not so much) stories of our misadventures of dating. And just maybe, if we’re lucky, we’ll stumble upon a story of success.
We met on-line. I was actually new to on-line dating and while skeptical, I founding it alluring. When first signing onto the site, I received an overwhelming number of notifications- messages and pokes alike. I talked to more than a few guys, but I only went out on a date with two.

So, to give some context, I’ve known this character for several years. We went to the same high school but were never close.
