Dating sites right stuff
We’ve talked about dating a bit on this site — how to squeeze dating into your busy schedule, how to date someone who’s extremely busy, and how to date someone who is far less busy than you. ) since we talked about the actual mechanics of dating, and I thought now might be a great time to do it.
So for today’s open thread: – which are your favorite online dating sites?
I’ve also written before about my favorite dating books, but if anyone has any other favorites, please shout ’em out in today’s comments!
) Has anyone had any luck with specialized dating sites, such as Right Stuff Dating or Good Genes (for grads of top schools)? As luck would have it I met my husband at a friend’s party at a bar (IRL! ) but I don’t regret my time on any of those dating sites, since I really felt like dating that much helped me recognize something great when I finally had it.
– what other venues do you use to find dates – e.g., memberships at museums, running clubs, church functions, other matchmaking groups, etc… At one point I was using six different dating sites (mostly trying to figure out which one fit me best), and a girlfriend and I would check in with each other every week to “report” in on how our “project” was going.
but I’ve written before about how I took dating quite seriously for about 16 months (meeting my husband around month 19).
he most remarkable feature of Facebook’s origins is that it began as a new channel to connect guys to gals—more specifically, for Harvard guys to ogle and perhaps meet Harvard gals otherwise inaccessible, presumably.

Though other seekers seized the unprecedented opportunity of discovering potential lovers residing elsewhere in the world, I did not.Somewhere I came across an advertisement for The Right Stuff, which promised “Ivy League of Dating,” though they expanded their scope to include alumni of other culturally classy North American colleges, such as the University of Toronto and Sarah Lawrence.In the 1990s, a subscriber purchasing a TRS membership received thumbnail biographies, perhaps 100 words, which became invitations to get, at a modest cost, a fuller page or two (and perhaps a photograph) prepared by the female subscriber.Though Facebook became something else more general, it began with the understanding that the old ways for heterosexual introductions weren’t working as well as they did before. I recall meeting lovely teenagers who went to other high schools, some nearby; but since transportation out of my insulated town was problematic until one became licensed to drive a car, these relationships didn’t develop.Once old enough to drive, I could pursue young women met at jobs we shared, such as a counselor at a summer day camp. Some of them introduced me to other women whom I dated and, in one case, married.
