So, Yeah, Online dating, that neck of the woods... or Be Naughty to be more specific. Before you ask... It’s not something I’ve done or looked into before, I’m not a geek, and no I’m not desperate. I think my preconceptions of the online dating game were pretty much in line with the consensus, but then who would really vote in confidence for random drunken interactions with strangers in a bar as being the most organised strategy? ;)
A friend of a friend, who shall remain nameless for PR reasons (I don’t think his girlfriend would be quite as favourable to hearing insights into his online dating shenanigans as me, when deep into the topic of the mating game on a hungover Sunday at the pub let me in on ‘his little secret’ as he called it (Yes I know, but I’m preserving his anonymity so it’s ok, right?). He revealed to me that one drunken evening browsing the net he took it upon himself to sign up with an online dating site called Be Naughty, out of ‘pure curiosity’ apparently ;). He went on to tell me that he really got into it, and without even intending to take it anywhere he got chatting with a girl and ended up meeting her for a quick date and ‘nightcap’ at hers the same weekend. More and more tales of his achievements sexual heroics and spilled out in parallel with the rate of booze being consumed, but I was already daydreaming with curiousity, and his slurring was getting tedious, so I thanked him for his wisdom and left him to it.
