I'm dropping my dating site membership and using the money for another "dating" site. Much better results in what I'm looking for.

What?!? I've just resigned myself to the fact that what I'm looking for in a relationship does not exist and therefore, I need to make some tough choices. What is most important to me? Dating isn't it.

Does it count as a marriage if you put her back in the dungeon afterwards?

marriage is marriage.

My dad actually suggested I marry one of my good friends. "It would solve a lot of your problems and you wouldn't even have to live together." I love my dad. He's great.

Yeah, dating blows. I never did get the whole dating scene. When you go on a "date" there seems to be so much expectation that by the end of it, you are usually set up for a let down. I seems so odd to me to go about finding people to date. Going out as friends without all of the drama that comes with dating makes a lot more sense to me.
