Between the office, happy hour, and yoga class, you'd think it would be easy to find the S.O. of your dreams. Well, it isn't. In fact, according to Statistic Brain
, compiled research from an MSNBC survey suggests that a whopping 40 million single folks in the U.S. are using online dating sites as a vehicle to find companionship. And, why not? You can surf for a Friday night date while sitting behind your desk on a Monday afternoon. Yet, even though we know plenty of couples who wound up in a serious relationship — or got hitched — from a cyber-dating experience, not everyone is so lucky in love.
So, to help you feel a little bit better about a potentially rotten date of your own, we got seven hopeless romantics to tell us about their virtual connection gone wrong. From a date who didn't match up to his profile (looks and
personality) to a grown man mimicking a work of art in the MOMA sculpture garden, we can't write nightmares this good, err, bad.
