The pros of internet dating
So if you're using Tinder, you just set your target radius to around 35km (because, you know, Gozitans), and boom, you've covered everyone.Tinder thankfully takes just moments to set up, but other, more traditional dating sites ask for a lot of details before dropping you in the pool, and claim that the information about you helps them make better matches.Which might be awkward if you have a profile pic with an open shirt on Dingli cliffs, or if you set your target age window too wide and they're half your age.Thankfully, the amount of fish in our lovely Maltese pond increases exponentially in the summer months, as sun-seekers flock to our shore, maybe hoping for a little summer lovin' to go with their tan.Some introductory piano lessons are long and explain a lot of information to you before you even get to touch a piano key.Piano Marvel gets you playing the piano in the very first lesson, which teaches you what whole notes are, and how to play them.But it's not uncommon to spend a good thirty minutes filling out details, and then suddenly you sign in and you see that there are only about seven other Maltese, and most of them look like your ex-geography teacher.So you write off the past hour and get out fast, deleting all traces as you go.
In the first section of lessons you learn about note values and how to combine and read whole notes, half notes and quarter notes.Whichever one you pick, even if it's a rainy Tuesday evening, you are going to bump into someone you know. Suddenly half the world knows you were sipping cocktails with a tall dark stranger. If you happen to be 'benching' someone at the time, or trying to juggle more than one dating option at a time, then there is also a distinct possibility that the person you bump into on that Tuesday night knows someone who knows someone who works with the cousin of that other date you serenaded last week. One of the cruelest but truest advantages of online dating is 'ghosting'. Plus you might find out stuff from their Facebook page that will put you off before you've even given them a chance. That hot barista who makes you walk an extra ten minutes for your coffee?That colleague of yours who was recently dumped and who makes your insides flutter? After swiping right on your barista, however, the chances are you might also come across: clients, bosses, employees, patients, and of course, cousins.
