Three nights later, when Norris met her friend for dinner, she logged on — and found that her kitty-loving alter ego had pawed a nerve. “I thought, ‘I’m so painfully single — and this crazy cat lady is more popular online than I am in real life!Along with some punny and profane come-ons were a lot of playful responses, along the lines of “meow, meow” and “purr, nap, yawn.” And they were from men. ’ ” So began her yearlong experiment into who, if anyone, might be considered “undateable” in the wide-open world of the internet.It’s far too complex, scary and difficult for mere mortals – so let’s bridge the gap by asking both men and women what doesn’t work when it comes to online dating services.To explore this topic, I pulled aside two individuals who I knew were hunting for a long-term relationship using online dating websites, and asked them about their experiences with the services.Newly arrived in Los Angeles and lonely, the writer-comedian had just come off a bad breakup — to a fellow comedian who, during their monthslong gig on a cruise ship, hooked up with the woman in the cabin next door.
