Years ago, I was just out of a terrible relationship and in no mood to date again.
My friends were all excited for my between-boyfriend time.
They may have started dating somebody they met on that very site and just never got around to closing their account or editing their profile to indicate that they’re no longer on the market.
Ultimately it doesn’t matter: they’re never going to respond to you, so you may as well quit worrying about ’em.
I've tracked and analyzed data, spoken to computer scientists, and figured out what makes certain profiles successful.
Despite being more popular than ever, online dating still remains a potential minefield for social etiquette and self-esteem.
The “rules” of online dating are, for the most part, unspecified and unspoken and prone to change without any seeming warning.
Very rarely was anything of substance shared there and more or less, everyone had the same opportunity to meet and connect with others.
The interactions were unique because of the anonymity given by using My Space.
