This blows my mind that this is even a question. As a guy who cut his chops in the dating game in the pre-Internet world, writing girls' number on napkins or random scraps of paper or just the palm of your hand, being able to contact them only if they were at home, having a PAGER to be gotten in contact with, calling chicks from pay phones, etc... you kids are shooting fish in a barrel nowadays. From Tinder to Match. com, you guys have all the bases covered, plus there's still real life encounters. I would have fucking SUPER-AIDS by now if we had this shit when I was single😂😂😂 I mean, at the same time, I personally would avoid meeting people online I think, or at least I'd strongly prefer to just meet people through my everyday life. I don't know why I feel like that, maybe it seems to me like people online have something to hide, or some glaring physical flaw that they need to get their foot in the door with their personality to overcome. I'm sure that's inaccurate and totally unfair to say, but that's the kind of thing that goes through my head, haha. I just see so much misrepresentation of themselves from so many people, I guess I just don't trust it. Maybe if I suddenly found myself single I'd change my tune. The other way to look at it is that there's a veritable "menu" of dates to choose from, should the feelings be mutual, in which case that sounds kinda cool. But I digress...
The point is, I think it's a sad day when it looks "suspicious" if you don't use social media, or its viewed as some kind of shortcoming, that's maybe the most absurd thing I'll hear all day. I don't have Facebook, and I never will. It's not because I have something to hide... I'm only hiding myself from unwanted interactions with people I'm not that fond of or clowns that I've left in the past. Like if I don't know your current whereabouts and contact info, 99% chance that I don't give a fuck about you and have no interest in knowing you anymore. I make it a point to stay in as much control as I can of who is and isn't in my life. I don't have enough free hours in the day to waste them on people I don't like or don't feel any type of way about. My girlfriend made me make a MySpace years ago, and all of these people I don't really like and just tolerate start hitting me up and losers I thought I had shaken free of are suddenly walking back in the door. I'm all set. I don't need a shrine to myself, which is basically all a Facebook is.2
