More than just the funnies.

Is Online Dating a Hit or a Miss?

You know that movie, As Good as it Gets? Let's make love better than that.

couple is sad because their relationship isn't as good in person as online
Woman says to date, Maybe we should just go back to e-mailing
There's something about the impersonal internet that becomes VERY personal where relationships are concerned! It's probably as hot as it gets. I think that's because your imagination can work overtime, and fill in any pesky gaps, if needed.

Unfortunately, online love doesn't always work out, and I can empathize with the melancholia these folks are feeling. It's so very hard to give up on love. Can't we go back to how it used to be?

I guess I'm feeling a little disappointed myself, and that's why I chose this cartoon today. I hope next week's cartoon will be more cheerful, but there's no guarantee.

Please share any of your own good and/or disappointing online love stories in the comments. Should we keep on trying?

Here's another PT cartoon about online relationships you might enjoy.
