Is online dating worth it

“It’s like your biggest accomplishment is something you didn’t do yourself.”She wasn’t being rude; I’m not beautiful in the traditional sense.

I have pock-marked skin, hooded eyes, and a bulbous nose.

I’m not ugly, but I don’t have much beauty privilege (and make no mistake, beauty privilege yields tangible rewards).

From grade-school dances in gyms to corporate happy hours, I’ve been “swiped left” on more than my fair share.“Online dating is just awkward,” my cute co-worker scrunches her nose.

My best friend, who looks like the racially ambiguous lovechild of Brad Pitt and Pocahontas, waves her phone at me in righteous indignation. Several of my “classically attractive” friends are pissed.

Online dating has become everyone’s go-to when it comes to meeting romantic prospects.
