Remember when online dating was so taboo that bringing it up was akin to playing the theme to The Exorcist on a dark, windy night?
I should know. In 1999, I met my bride…online.
Think about that: before the turn of the century, when most of America thought computers were going to explode and the Great Lakes were going to turn into blood, spit, and venom.
There was no clutter in the dating market — no Tinder, Match, Chemistry, OkCupid (today, they’re all owned by the same company, IAC). Back then, it was just apprehension and fear of the unknown. Today, it’s much of the same because dating online is yesterday’s news.
Until “The Grade” showed up to class, using PR to knock out the competition.
