I married someone i met on OkCupid. So the site can be used to find a husband. It is perhaps more international. I was in Saudi Arabia at the time and she was in Mindanao. It's kind of funny -- in Saudi Arabia it's illegal to meet the opposite sex. People get married before they meet, pretty much in that culture. For foreigners we met in embassies. So at the Canadian embassy I got hit on by this really good looking lady. But i was kind of terrified -- what if she was married? It's a beheading offense to commit adultery there (unless you are actually on the embassy grounds which are not in saudi arabia). So I waited and asked later -- my friends. They said she hits everyone she has not hit on before. Her husband is in the foreign office and is never home. So that got me online for sure. Also, i noticed that in Saudi, of the Westerners who had been there more than 2 years, all were crazy, married, or engaged (only 1 was engaged). So i thought i would get married. Of the crazy ones, one was carrying gold on his back. He said the wrold economy would collapse soon and only he would have money. Ok, it's a standard far right position. Gold s tandard etc. But it's crazy to tell everyone, and to also carry it with you all the time, r ight? On the other hand, if you're going to do that, Saudi it the place. Stealing is punished by crucifixion. They cut your head off, sew it back on, and then crucify you . Huh. You can't go to paradise if you are mutilated. So he was safe. Another crazy guy kept showing me pictures of pyramids on mars. So i met a nice girl in the Philippines. But you may be right about the swipe sites -- hook up stuff.
