Actually, I've never really liked the term "online dating" because, well, can our interactions on here count as dates? Are we dating if I send you a "wink," or have we hooked up if I send you a "poke" (yeah, I know that's a Facebook thing)? Can we say we've gone out for coffee if I e-mail you a coupon for a free tall drink at Starbucks? Or have we taken in a movie together if I send you a link to an online screener? I prefer "online meeting" or "online socializing" or even "social screening." But hey, that's just me.
Hmm, I guess I am pretty traditional when it comes to dates, at least initially. I'd probably suggest meeting for a drink first, then maybe drinks and dinner for date two, then maybe drinks, dinner, and a movie, and as (if?) we get more comfortable we can talk about switching it up. I dunno...too boring?
