COMPUTER LOVE

Dear Buzz Crew,

I’m a 21 year old student approaching my senior year in University and I have a quesiton. Is it too early to start and try internet dating at my age. I don’t have much free time to meet people through the college experience because I have classes and work two to three jobs on and off throughout the year. I am wondering if internet dating will be right for me at this time for me to meet people.

Thanks,
Anonymous

hay buzz crew I been dating my best friend of about 7 years for 2 years we both love tech and that was one of the things i love about her . Everything seemed to be going great until this past Sunday. We went to her parents house for her moms birthday party and out of nowhere she purposed to me. I was so shocked all i could say was “”ill have what she’s having “” it was so awkward and quite i couldn’t answer lucky for me i had to leave for a business trip on Monday. I dont get back until Sunday night but i never really thought about marriage and I’m about to graduate from the university of Notre Dame with a PH.D in psychology and I’m only 25. if i were say no would i have wasted the last two years of her life. So buzz crew what should i do ? love the show .
PS Molly let me be the first to say u look vary beautiful every day
