Basing this on some mighty lonely experiences living alone in the big city and essentially working my butt off, I found it almost impossible meeting someone.
Working in retail in Soho, the most amount of interaction I had with the opposite sex were usually gay. It was just one of the biggest dry spells I had and all I wanted was to be adored and wined and dined. I didn’t think I was ugly and I do usually have some confidence when it comes to dating.

I did my research and it seemed like the cool thing to do was, at 23 years old, go on Ok Cupid. I put a few pictures up, answered all those ridiculous questions and I just waited until I got a bite. I won’t say that they were all creepy; there were few hopefuls but it felt like all these dudes in my age demographic was using these sites to essentially get people in bed. I still felt really weird about it but I really had nothing to lose, maybe except my life, because who the heck knows who these people really are any way. I went on three dates with three different dudes and went 0 for 3.
It was less embarrassing than going on others and full committing and paying a monthly fee. Ladies, I shouldn’t have to say this because you should already know this, but if you are going on an online date you need to meet in a public setting and have your friend on speed dial just in case you have to get out of there! The first was a disappointment where as he just thought I was hot and didn’t care what I had to say.

But what the hell, I had nothing to loose and I was living somewhere where no one knew me.
So on I went, looking up the most suitable social media dating sites, just advertising myself and throwing myself in the gauntlet of online dating. I was getting over 100 emails a day from the most random and creepy people. I took the opportunity that some decent guys offered me and I actually went on dates with people from the Internet.
