Thinking back, I find it almost endearing that my emblazoned diary was a tome of all my unrequited love yearnings, wanting nothing more than to find acceptance thorough love.
Problem is, as much as I like to think of that as a thing of the past, reality tells me that things haven’t changed.
Last week I shared my six pet peeves about middle-aged men's online dating profiles, and I promised everyone that this week I'd focus on middle-aged women's online dating profiles.
Since I'm far more familiar with men's profiles, I recruited some of my single male friends (and the Twittersphere) to help me with this post.
If you find yourself “addicted” to the introductory period of online dating (match & message), but you’re not going on any actual dates, then what’s the point?
Encounter’s approach to online dating doesn’t allow in-app messaging until you and your match have gone on an actual date.
I recently vowed to give up on dating for a year to concentrate on reclaiming my self-esteem, which was at an all-time low, but as a hopeless romantic, an idiot, or just someone who’s addicted to the idea of love, I gave it another shot.
From my experience, no, especially with social media having a hand in how we communicate with one another.
Dating in today’s world is comparable to an extreme sport.
The following list is my best attempt at summarizing the results of my informal survey, with a few of my own observations based on a bit of research I conducted myself.
Disclaimer: if you're a woman between the ages of 45 and 60, living in the Chicagoland area, and I popped up on your "Viewed Me" list, I'm sorry, really. I would like to ask all of my middle-aged online dating male and female compatriots a favor.
