Great Dating Movie

No matter what age you are, if you're dating these days then you will love this movie. It accurately shows how easy it is to meet people through the power of the Internet but how incredibly difficult it is to meet someone with whom you can make a real connection.

Internet dating sites are great in that they allow you to quickly & easily meet a number of different people, many of whom you'd generally never cross paths with. Several of my friends have met their spouses this way, some even not in the same country.

Their are problems with Internet dating though. First, it gives people the ability to hide certain key facts about themselves (I could have used the word "lie" but wanted to be more tactful), which often leads to a lack of trust. And for some people, there is a certain addictive quality to being able to meet someone new - someone new - someone new - without really giving any particular relationship a chance to grow & flourish.

Do see the movie. It's a good one!
