Years ago I would have killed to have even one option, let alone unlimited options. The time when I appreciated women for both their perfections and imperfections is long gone. Perhaps in a more rational world, all of society would have the fun I'm having, and married, monogamous people, would be considered the freaks. Online dating gave me a medium to practice and harness my skills with women behind a computer screen that I never would have had elsewhere. How could I crave a girlfriend, when every time I go on a date, I know I have a minimum of twenty five messages waiting for me on my phone? In a world of unlimited options, there is no longer room for imperfection. While marriage is great for some people, I'm not sure marriage and kids can ever keep me from feeling as if I am coasting through a life of monotony, living exactly how society dictates I should be living.Amazing connections are consistently passed up on for hypothetical connections.
With every email that came my way, an inevitable rush quickly followed. An all-consuming, not paying attention to anything else in my life addiction.As I went out with beautiful women night after night, almost no woman ever made it past the first few dates.Its not that online daters don’t want a first date to be a great experience. From my perspective, serial dating has made online daters more judgmental then they ever were prior to signing up for the medium.Standards are increasingly becoming impossible to measure up to. Internal and external flaws didn't bother me as long as the girl was nice. Am I a flawed, immoral, judgmental pig, who just refuses to grow up, or am I living my life in a manner that makes me truly happy, despite some of the imperfections I may have?

I was beyond grateful if a woman would even talk to me. So the question is, has online dating turned me into a horrible person?
Every now and then a few would make it past the first month, but I’d always manage to find a superficial reason why they weren’t good enough.
I was simply a man with an addiction, unable to resist the urge of dating as many women as I could fit into my schedule, no matter how great the most recent girl was.
As a man who is now in a fulfilling monogamous relationship, I can’t lie and say I didn’t love this period of my life.
Nor do I see anything wrong with dating as many women as a man sees fit.
Every individual is entitled to live his or her life as he or she pleases.
