I think you nailed the internet dating thing on the head, it is kinda like making friends online. You get the WHOLE spectrum, from normal decent people to the flat out trolls lol. Once the parents meet the new girl I'm sure it will stop the judgmentalness; it really makes no sense, my Dad has been trying to start a tradition where all males in the family get the same calligraphy tattoo. He got my brother but it just isn't my thing :P
The puppy's name is Mya (pronounced Maya). The breed is fairly rare here in North America, but it sounds like it's rare over in the UK too if you had to look it up! They are VERY cuddly, and have this idea that they are lap dogs, even when full grown and 40-60lbs!

That is nuts about your school being shut down :( I hope you can continue your work elsewhere soon! Good luck with finding a new job too, hopefully you'll get a decent manager and better hours!
I'd imagine internet dating could potentially be rather scary/weird at first, but having said that I've made a bunch of friends online, so I'm guessing online dating is somewhat a continuation of that, and I bet skype helps too XD your new girl sounds sweet though, and I don't think there is anything wrong with tattoos/piercings. I hope once your family gets to know her they will stop judging her by her appearance. I really like tattoos with a story behind them, though I don't have the guts to get one done myself.
*squee* new puppy! I had to google the breed, they look adorable! What is her name?
