Feel free to live vicariously

Today I did what I've contemplated doing for months: I joined an online dating site. Ostensibly I did this solely to get the results of their dating personality test, but then, when given the option to create a profile, I decided to give the whole thing a chance. My life is filled with women—my friends, my co-workers, my singing friends, etc.—and precious few men (and even fewer who are straight and my age). I rarely put myself into social situations in which I could potentially meet someone. I know a bunch of people who have met some great people over the internet. So why not join? Why not put myself out there and see what happens?
