Opinion on online dating dutch dating etiquette
I believe that if one were to go that route, they should honestly take some time alone with God and ask themselves this one question: is this a wise route to find a spouse or am I doing this because I’m tired of waiting to find someone/be pursued?
I would hate for anyone to read this and assume I’m saying their relationship is not the will of God if they met online.

During our hour-long cappuccinos, Ad Guy emptied the contents of his Dockers pockets and gave me a detailed commentary on everything he carried: screwdriver, tissues, pocket knife, measuring tape, Purell, Band-Aids, wrench set, hammer, magnifying glass, eyeglass repair kit, two HMV gift cards, a poem to his mother, fire starter, antiseptic wipes, allergy pills, pen, notepad, Starbucks gift cards, family photos, TTC tokens, elastics . While I appreciate family bonds, reciting maternal verse was not the way to win me over. I know there are success stories out there, but it’s not in the cards for me.
So for me to say I’m against online dating, I have to be fair and say why.
That virtual boo you’re calling a “dream come true” could be a nightmare in reality.
