Online Dating

I went on a whim to a dating website
Bored by loneliness and lacking foresight
I thought I would meet someone new
But weirdness stalked me all through

Some wanted sex, some wanted commitment
Everybody said what they wanted was a friend
It is hard not to think that’s not true
People telling lies before they even meet you

So I dialed down my expectations
Do I look lucky today
And I closed the dating website
And went my own way

  2. Sociologists say that what you think of the average “other” person, is what you think of yourself. If you think the average person is a liar, you are outing yourself.

    • online dating is not the same as offline dating. people sometimes behave differently online than they do offline. this was a work of fiction :)
