Re: What are your opinions on Online Dating Accounts?
Oh God no, I don't care if you're argumentative. I consider this, between us right now, healthy debate that the forum rarely sees. If there's anything that I wish to see more on here, it's a differing of opinions and an exchange of beliefs and ideas like this. I think it's great that there's someone who disagrees with me. It offers the readers different things to choose from and follow, and it overall creates some more diversity in the knowledge of the forums.

And believe me, being at a Catholic institution like mine, where the conservatism and regulations run thicker than molasses, you WANT to be careful.
Now if I went to a large school like UW Madison, where the students population is 40,000+ and there's two other colleges in the area, then there's no reason for me to be afraid to slip-up in public. As my friend who goes there says, "one day you think you have fallen in love with the most beautiful girl on campus, and then the next day it happens all over again".
