Relationships should be less predictable and worth waiting for.We have too much control over a romantic process and in turn, we're killing the romance.So the "bar scene" is the only alternative to online dating you can think of?I met my wife in college -- you know, while going about my daily business. My brother-in-law met his wife through an online dating site. I agree with the comment above: pretty lazy article -- a subject not hardly worth fussing over in the first place, with a few, poor arguments against it thrown in at the end. Can we get over the old, sophomoric lamentation of the internet being a scary modern phenomenon that's making everything too easy and too fast?

A female friend of mine would only date men who lived a minimum of one hour away—she liked the anonymity.
