My friend made a deep, dark confession to me the other day. She told me that she made a profile on an online dating site, and sat down nightly to peek at her potential matches in her inbox. She no longer has issues with online dating, but she's ashamed that instead of paying for the full service and actually giving it a try, she's checking out the basic profiles of the guys who might fit her ideals just to make herself feel better about her current (post-breakup) situation.
I swore to her that it was fine, but it did seem kind of odd. So is sitting at home, sipping wine while checking out matches online the new version of sitting at a bar, drinking a cocktail and checking out single men? If so, what does that mean in terms of being single and putting yourself out there? So what's your take, is it OK to look?
