Ten Reasons Blogging is Better than Online Dating



Me pretending to be out of breath after pretending to run on the beach. Photos like this may be the reason that online dating didn't work out very well for me.




  • You don’t have to get dressed and dolled up to blog. It’s come as you are, and people like you just the same.



  • When you realize that stuff you wrote last night that seemed very clever while drinking is really the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever said, you can delete the blog post.


  • If you decide to call it quits with your blog, you don’t wonder if you should change your name and number and maybe move out of state.


  • Nobody who is visiting your blog for the first time tells you all about every one of their exes and everything that was wrong with them.


  • If a blogger embellishes their accomplishments or qualities on their About Me page, you can usually figure it out, and you didn't have to sit through dinner with them to do so. 


  • Blog readers never read your profile and then comment “What kind of underpants do you wear? C’mon, tell me.” Unless, of course, you blog about underwear, but then they probably wouldn't have to ask.


  • Nobody finds your blog by scrolling through hundreds of photos of bloggers until they find an attractive one, who also likes long walks on the beach.


  • Bloggers can’t “wink” at you.


  • If a blogger lets his dog poop in the house, you’ll never find out by stepping in it.


  • Your blog followers will never drunk dial you at 3:00 a.m.

  2. That is adorable! Many giggles on this one. My favorite? "If a blogger embellishes their accomplishments or qualities on their About Me page, you can usually figure it out, and you didn't have to sit through dinner with them to do so."
