When most people think of online dating websites, there is a stigma attached. “You seriously use Plenty of Fish?” Some people will laugh. They will snicker. They will jeer at you, uncomfortably, or maybe, self-righteously.
Well, I do use Plenty of Fish. I’m not ashamed of it, honestly.
I’ve had friends try to make jokes at my expense, or try to make fun of me. I’ve had girls I’ve met through it feel uncomfortable about me saying that we met on a “dating website.” They strongly encourage me not to tell people that’s how we met.
To those people, I say: Grow up.
datingandhookup.com is a website that explores modern romance in the Millennial era – which, let’s be honest, looks nothing like we were taught to expect. We feature essays, advice and social commentary with humor, compassion and brains, and we vow never, ever to publish a piece called “The 10 Best Ways to Satisfy Your Man in Bed”. Do click to submit your work to us. We love you.
