Call me old fashioned but I think my best friend is crazy.
She’s one of my best friend, we met in highschool. But after college she came home to Bali, her hometown, she’s Balinese. And I think she’s going to kill me if she find out I’m writing this for the whole world to see. LOL!
Anyway, she called 2 days ago and told me she’s going to Jakarta. First she told me that it’s just a holiday, but last night I found out that the purpose of her coming is to meet a guy she knew from online dating. So, she flew 1.5 hour from Bali to Jakarta, alone (well, not quite alone because she’ll meet me here), to meet her blind date today. She said that it’s not ‘that blind’ after all, since they already shared each other picture on Whatsapp messenger. Doh, it could’ve been photoshop-ed, or it could’ve been someone else picture.
It’s not that I against online dating, I know lots of people met their couple online. Online dating is one thing, but online dating with a guy from United State is another thing. United state is on the other continent, not like flying 1.5 hour to Jakarta. It could’ve been more than 10 hours flight. And this guy don’t work here, he only come to Jakarta for 3 days business and back to America. What if my friend meet him tonight and this guy is nice and she fell for him? I think that is going to be a very big problem.
But I don’t know. Maybe I just worried too much that my dear friend have this too many hopes and dreams that she’ll hurt her ass if she’s falling on the ground. If not her ass, then her heart will.
Have you any experience with this online dating?
