Let me share what I’ve learned certain words mean in the real world: Technorati Tags: dating Internet, dating online, senior dating, bbw dating, mature dating, dating over 50, dating over 40, online dating advice, dating after 40, dating after 50, over 40 dating, 40 dating, dating after forty Too right you are! Chances are the real person looks nothing like that as numerous candid shots have proven. Which makes me feel a whole lot better about lawn bowling.
When I was doing the internet dating thing, I thought there should be a starters manual for everyone who was dipping their toes in for the first time. Also, if the pic is of a woman lying on the bed in a seductive pose with a skimpy outfit on, and the profile says “Im looking for someone who will love me not for looks, but for who I am” lets just say, its pretty clear who you are, and I do have the name of a good therapist if you need it. Geez, some say they pole vault, mountain climb, scuba dive, triathalon, bow hunt, skydive ad nauseum. looking for a man with: traditional values – you must treat me like a queen, and don’t expect sex family values – if you’re not ready to make babies, don’t bother me Also, must love dogs – you’re going to be #2, at best!
Some of these I’ve learned the hard way, as I am generally trusting and believe people at their word. enjoy the finer things in life – “you better be as rich as Bill Gates”…
Lose your looks and I’m gone” “I’m so turned on whenever I’m with you” = “The sex is great, but I don’t think about you when we’re apart” Thee are honest, decent men out there, and I’m pretty certain they don’t feel the need to use the kind of cheesy lines we women often get to hear during our dating adventures.
His original message got lost in a long list of generic (or disgusting) messages from people, and I ignored it for a few days.
So happy I finally responded and kept talking to him (even though I thought he was way out of my league).
