I agree with mom since when you are young, cute, out around town and have a personality that is ok or great why not meet by introduction or doing things or being out in places you go for fun or just whatever? I met guys in my teens and 20s in school, walking to or from work in Manhattan, bars, introduction, parties, beach, activities for fun that were part of my daily or whatever life. Why can’t you see what they really look like and not a photo online first? Why can’t you have the excitiement of meet, call/text, date and then whatever happens behind the private places in your lives? If this is progress — yuck!
