Impatient with the desolate Dunedin dating scene, Alice* signed up to NZDating at the tender age of 19.
While I am yet to overcome the mental hurdle of actually signing up to one of the numerous sites on offer, I found myself intrigued by fellow students who have done this very thing.
Unable to handle the pressure, Alices flatmate abandoned ship almost immediately.
But they say that good things come to those who wait, and Alice was pleasantly surprised when Charlie*, an apparently normal law and politics student, messaged her wanting to get to know her.
This guy was in this crappy house and I got down to the end of the hallway and there was this strange dog and crap everywhere and he was like, 411, and came at me.
Revelling, as we all are, in that illusion of invincibility afforded to us by youth, I was unsurprised when Oscar admitted that safety is not his primary concern when it comes to arranging these meetings.
