Are you one of the 55 million singles who will sit home tonight and stroke your keyboard? May I propose something novel and very old school? Ask someone out. It’s not hard. You just dial the phone and say, hey Sam, let’s grab a movie or a drink. Then you shower, dress, leave the house and have a blast.
Try Badoo like I did to check out an entirely different dating pool and market given Kansas City has one of the worst dating markets in the country. Here’s the link for the bold Monas who wanna get back in the saddle.

Unfortunately this is no longer the norm. Tonight 5.5 million singles will go online and hide behind their computers because it’s anonymous, safe, easy, and nine times out of 10 just a big time suck. For many single surfers, it becomes a hobby in voyeurism rather than a bridge to bonding, meeting, marveling, and perhaps mating.
The Dating Goddess at Delicious Adventures in Dating After 40 compares online dating to a sushi bar. She says you sit comfortably and watch the dishes go by and pick what looks appealing. She nails it by summarizing the online experience below.
“Having this unending flow may make you pickier, as you know what you do and don’t want. The problem can be what you want isn’t on the conveyor belt. Perhaps you want — really want — tacos. But you’re at a sushi bar. No matter how long you wait, you’re never going to find what you’re looking for.”
Facebook servers will be humming tonight for those singles that are dateless and choose not to log onto Match, eHarmony, Plenty of Fish, Christian Mingles, and 1500 online dating sites. Not surprisingly many love affairs are igniting on Facebook with single women and men finding past loves or missed opportunities.
I’m all for scoring digitally as long as the computer is used as a catalyst to getting up close and personal not a barrier to entry so to speak. Touch is an important component to our well being. However, being glued to a screen instead of someone’s sexy mouth or eyes is a poor choice.
Our lack of touch, connection, and social skills could actually hinder our ability to hook up. When we finally get back out into the real dating scene, we stumble, slur our words and choke. Social media doesn’t replace social skills.
And interactivity on the net can lead to a touch-starved world of singles. If you’re single when’s the last time you held someone’s hand, hugged someone of the opposite sex, cuddled, or kissed someone so passionately that you felt like crème brulee? Facebook can’t replace these feelings or needs.
So tonight don’t even touch your computer. It’s over stimulated any way. Go someplace people rich, mingle, talk, touch, and re-engage in life the 20th century way.
