I continue to be surprised by how often I see someone, upon being asked if they ever use a dating app, make a disgusted face at the notion, as if they just realized a tarantula was crawling up their neck.
The reason offered by these folks about their eHarmony phobia is usually the same: They say this as if the Internet is some sketchy graffiti-covered neighborhood three blocks from their house, and you should never go there after dark without carrying ample amounts of pepper spray. But skeptics dismiss online dating as if the development of the Internet also spontaneously created a giant additional community of newly manufactured weirdos in the world.
And the sole purpose of these nerds is to sit in a musty basement somewhere, chugging Mountain Dew Code Red, wearing an Arcade Fire hoodie and continuously ruining the entire online experience for all the good saintly regular people. Aside from the secrecy factor, the Interwebbery makes looking for love seemingly easier than ever.
