OK, OK, let’s get this out in the open right now: I’ve done online dating, you’ve done online dating, EVERYBODY’S done online dating by now, but there’s still a huge stigma attached to it. I’ll totally admit I was mortified when I finally decided to join OK Cupid but I’ll also admit I met the love of my life on there, and I’ve found out a lot of my friends did too. Stupid OK Cupid, proving itself useful.
So, This Is What It’s Come To… captures the embarrassment one feels about joining a dating site…without a lot of the positives I just mentioned. Leslie, Ramsey, Liz & Kettner all take really honest looks at themselves and their feelings around online dating with a healthy amount of laughing at themselves along the way.
Points off for repeated use of the term “interweb,” though. You’re not fooling anyone. This is a zine about online dating, we assume you know how to use a computer.
