Every week in Living in Sin, Jen Sincero provides advice to LA's sexually curious. You can see her column in print, too, in the LA Alternative Press. Ask Jen your questions: all are posted anonymously.

Dear Jen,
I'm a writer who's been living in LA for three years now. I am very
happy with my professional life, which is consumed by writing, but I
haven't developed any kind of social life. When I was with my wife we
had many friends, but now I have very few, and haven't had a single
date in over five years.

I would like to know if it really is possible to meet women through
online dating. Could you give me some advice as to how to go about
doing this? I would like to have sex, romance, or even marriage in my
life again.
