Finding love of all sorts has never been easier. With just a few swipes or clicks, you can order to your door a man who fits at least a few of your criteria. You'll probably be reasonably entertained or satisfied for not just one night but perhaps even a few. Indeed, some people have found lasting love in this way. However, due to the fact that an app or a website cannot really measure a lot of the things that make a relationship work, these devices don't always help us to winnow out the worst choices.
Part of the problem is that we're encouraged to make very shallow decisions about what sort of person we're looking for, as well as what sort of person we want to attract. This means we not only end up choosing unwisely, but we also end up soliciting the attentions of people who fundamentally are not interested in what we have to offer. This is a shame, of course, because whatever you are offering, it's likely that there is a lovely guy out there pining for exactly that. It's just a matter of being smart about not screening him out of your search in the first place and thus ensuring you never meet. Let's help you identify him, and get you one step closer to finding him!
