You Asked: Should I Try an Online Dating Service?

Dear Sugar,

I'm thinking about using the dating service, It's Just Lunch, but I'm worried that I'll be the youngest person there. I just moved to a new city after graduating from college, I have a relatively busy job and haven't had any luck meeting guys. I'm only 24 and I feel like using a dating service is a total cop out, so should I keep trying other avenues, or should I just go for it? — Timid Tammy

Dear Timid Tammy,

There are so many stigmas attached to dating services, and while older people tend to be the ones using them, I think you should totally go for it! You never know who could be at the opposite side of the lunch table, and at the end of the day, what do you really have to lose?

If It's Just Lunch doesn't work out for you, tell your friends and family members that you're looking to meet someone, they might have the perfect person in mind. I know it can be hard to meet new people, but if you keep your eyes open and your available light on — especially in unexpected places like the grocery store, your local coffee shop, or the gym — you might be pleasantly surprised to find that guys are out there looking for love too. Good luck!
