Survival guide to online dating
I was widowed at 63 and within a year friends and acquaintances alike were actively encouraging, setting up and supervising my “dating”.
Any male past 50 thought to be at least tolerable or, failing that, had a pulse was dusted off and sent my way.
For our first meeting he invited me to an early dinner at a local chain restaurant.
Opening remark as we met in the parking lot,” You actually look like your picture”. We exchange a few niceties, he orders drinks and proceeds to tell me he will pay for dinner rather than splitting the bill since he invited me.
Therefore, you should make the best of your single life.
Don’t fall into compromises that you don’t really want to attend. During Christmas holidays, the streets become more dynamic and crowded.
Finding one’s self alone after a long and happy marriage is daunting on multiple levels at any age.
Being on the far side of 60 brings its own set of unique experiences; online dating exceeds unique.
With a barrage of responses within the first few days of receiving matches, I was certain my prince awaited.This could become a lifetime hobby as I was certainly spending all my free time on it!
