I have given up on online dating
I’ve decided I would rather meet men through friends and acquaintances in my own town, in my own way, even if it’s much slower.
I am not a gambler, and meeting men from a website is too much of a gamble for me.
From there, maybe we’ll end up in a relationship and maybe we won’t. If we give up after one dissatisfying date and two chats or emails with creeps, we’re not giving online dating a chance. I’m all in favor of meeting people through acquaintances – that’s how I met my first husband, who is still my very close friend.
And meeting someone while out doing social activities that we enjoy is splendid – that’s how I met the love of my life, my second husband, who literally danced into my life by attending the line-dance class I was teaching.

It’s like they can’t empathize with what we’re talking about.
I told him that he was a pathetic excuse for a man and had no right to call me inappropriate names, and I would report him to the website’s administrator.
The third and last time I tried online dating, a guy initiated a conversation by email.
It was a busy time for me, and I didn’t answer right away.
But the truth is this: Online dating is where the single seniors are.
It’s darned hard to meet interested singles our age any other way.
