A 29-year-old guy in St. Louis struck out on the usual dating apps, so he created his own dating site featuring just himself.  He started his own website called DateColinOBrien.com, and 10 days ago he posted it in a Facebook group called "Date Ideas and Things to Do in St. Louis."

He's already heard from nearly 200 eligible women and has 13 dates lined up.

 

 

According to Fox2Now.com

O’Brien posted the link to www.datecolinobrien.com less than a week ago on a Facebook group called Date Ideas & Things to do in St. Louis. The post already has more than 3.5K likes and 1,000 comments.

 

In the post he says, “it’s a revolutionary new dating service with just one eligible bachelor: me.”

Online dating can be scary. But, with sites like Match, OkCupid, and Plenty of Fish around, you have plenty of options to choose from! I personally am super glad I met my wife before this internet craze happened.  We met the old fashioned way.  At a rock concert at The Pig Pen in Clinton.

Online dating has come a long way since the first online dating site (Match) was founded in 1995 and the early days of chat rooms on AOL in the mid-90s. It can be very scary for some to go into this new world of online dating, especially if you have limited previous experience with it. The last thing anyone wants to do is embarrass themselves when they are trying to find love, so it’s important to start off on the right foot before making your move.

So...maybe you want to take a page from Colin and create your own DateColinOBrien.com.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
