Is Online Dating as Much Fun as You Thought It Would Be?

A cartoon about how to handle a boyfriend who you've never met.

always back up your boyfriend - and your computer work

Over 50% of women in this country are single. With such an unparalled opportunity to change one's life, many women choose to meet a man, and many of them find interesting men online! Even when they're not looking! Men are everywhere online!

But be careful: just as you backup your important computer data, back up your guy. Don't depend on him too soon, before you've made him your hardcopy boyfriend. Have some fallback guys to date. If you met him in a chat room, through a singles service, or as a penpal, that's great, but be careful. Back away. Back up. Be safe.

You are cordially invited to share your online dating adventures in the comments. Maybe I'll even do a cartoon about one of them!
