Reader Question:

Tell me why is it so frowned upon, online dating?

-Henry

Dr. Wendy Walsh’s Answer:

Honestly, in this day and age, I don’t know of anyone who frowns on online dating. The stigma has been lost in the last few years. Almost all single young people have tried it. And the fastest growing demographic in online dating is singles over the age of 50. If you think it’s weird, then maybe you think your friends are weird, because I’ll bet they are doing it. :)
