I haven’t had much success using OkCupid, maybe with one exception: There is one person whom I really like. We have been meeting for a couple of months now, quite regularly, although always with some weeks between our meetings. I am a bit confused about the status of those meetings and I have caught myself wondering whether they were still “proper dates”. According to the criteria that seem to be the valid ones in this century, nothing has happened yet. Well, apart from the fact that I have come to know a person I like and whom I can meet for chatting, going to exhibitions, having a cocktail, going to the movies, or just enjoy wintery Vienna with. On reflection, I find it shocking how easily everybody – me included – seems to be prepared to call that “nothing”.
