you really had to be a sad and lonely lowered expectations type to use internet dating sites back in the 90's. It wasn't the hookup network it became.
You're right in that it was much more of a blind date thing as opposed to, "here's a bunch info/pics/everything ahead of time; let's bang" it can be now, but it really did become a huge thing almost right away (it was one of those things that everyone mocked, yet tons of people were using. Kinda like people who voted for Nixon). I was, and remain, too terrified to try online dating, but my infinitely better looking and more athletic younger brother used it back in the 90's and somehow ended up dating a model, which just made me even more scared and bitter.
