Real online dating success stories
"My OK Cupid date was a college senior home for break.I was the one who drunkenly suggested having sex in a public bathroom.On my way out, I was yanked aside for questioning by police officers on suspicion of prostitution.Flushed and wasted, with my panties stuffed in my coat pocket, I did my best to explain that I was just talkingwith my "friend" in the bathroom.I managed to squeeze out some crocodile tears so the officers wouldn't slap me with public indecency charges.The lady officer told me to 'never let a man treat you that way again.'" "My first-ever OK Cupid date was an hour late for dinner, which in itself was a bad idea (first-date dinners are the worst). I blocked his number." "I immediately knew I wasn't attracted to him, but I invited him to a party I was going to just to be polite.

“I can take my grandmother’s advice and sort of ‘least expect’ my way into maybe bumping into the one [of them] — or I can try online dating,” she says.
