Let’s make some other things perfectly clear: Feminists don’t wear Daisy Duke shorts, enter wet t-shirt contests, or bat their eyes pretending to be baffled by existential musings about Nietzsche.

In my little world, feminists don’t online date because it seems pathetically akin to wearing a tiger skin skirt and plunging halter top to a job interview hoping to get noticed for intellectual prowess.

With the flick of the enter button, this old school dater bursts into the twenty-first century and the prospect of cyber love. For days I desperately and feverishly log in and out of my online dating account hoping for a picture of a man holding a glass slipper that will slide perfectly onto my size 8 feet.
