I’m a good-looking 31 year-old professional man with a great sense of humour and a passion for reading, writing, exercising and socialising. For my part I’ve fallen in love once and become infatuated a number of times. That malicious magician, Cupid, pulled the curtain back on each of his tricks to reveal the truth: each and every one of them was a crude and tawdry sham. Last night I went on a date who had prepared an historical walking tour of London, complete with an itinerary in a plastic wallet. Nonetheless, his neuroses and gargoylesque mutations of character are yet to take full form.
I look back across the emotional wasteland of the last twelve months and my soul crumples.

from Brooklyn, NY for suggesting this week’s topic: Online dating, once a fringe and stigmatized activity, is now over a billion industry.
It was horrifying and made them seem really pathetic.
Many on there just like to pick on or mock people's profiles for their own cynical amusement. Match is mostly for upper middle-class adults 35 and older who want to get married.
