Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?

Apparently, all the cowboys have gone to online dating services. 

Writer and city sophisticate Julia Kelly tweeted an article this morning about more envious glories of NYC living. I followed a strange Internet black hole and found article after article about online dating. 

A new study (funded by Match) shows more first dates happen as a result of online dating sites than friend-set ups and even workplace romances.

Hmm. What do you say to this? Single ladies, is that what you're seeing? Happily paired folk, does this reflect your experience?

I will say I've yet to be asked out in the Whole Foods produce section. Lectured on the health benefits of kale for my unborn child (not pregnant!), yes. But love connectioned? No. 

I offer you my favorite paragraph:
